Inclusion of marker bands is a critical feature that aids the physician in visualizing placement of the catheter inside the patient’s body. Their precise placement and encapsulation within the catheter tube walls are critical to proper functioning of the catheter. These features require a precise, repeatable process to assure locational accuracy and device integrity. A wide variation in tube sizes, tip configurations and polymer choices add extra layers of complexity to the tip forming process.
