A growing number of advanced catheter applications utilize multiple lumens in a tube. Tips are designed to close off some lumens while keeping others open. Their precise external and internal geometric configurations are designed for specific functions, and they require a precise, repeatable process to be formed accurately. A wide variation in tube sizes, tip configurations and polymer choices add extra layers of complexity to the tip forming process. Vante and PlasticWeld diverse equipment options provide you with unmatched versatility to meet your specific production challenges.
