Many single-use devices utilize eyelets as a means for collecting or dispersing fluids, or supporting device deployment / actuation components. Precise, consistently located eyelets with clean cut and burr-free edges are critical design features that can only be produced using precision production equipment. A wide variation in tube sizes, number of lumen in the tube, number & orientation of eyelets and eyelet configurations adds extra layers of complexity to the skiving process.
