Taper welded tube segments are a standard method of transitioning from a larger to smaller diameters for many catheter applications. Precise external and internal geometric configurations with securely bonded interfaces are critical for proper functioning of the catheter. A wide variation in tube sizes, taper 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.
