Catheter Tipping Dies and Forming Tools

Catheter Tipping Dies Developed With Precision

We specialize in the design and production of catheter tipping dies and forming tools to suit your production requirements.

  • Catheter tipping die production starts with cutting-edge engineering. A robust staff of highly skilled, degreed engineers carefully evaluates your product requirements and then designs tooling to assure meeting expectations.
  • Only the highest quality alloys are selected for use in our dies.
  • Depending on the application, some alloys can be heat treated for greater resistance to abrasive plastics or mandrel insertion. Our heat-treating processes are done in-house to maximize responsiveness.
  • Highly specialized, state-of-the-art CNC equipment and highly trained machinists are used in the production of our high-precision catheter tipping dies.
  • Multi-site production in fully staffed machine shops maximizes production capacity to provide the shortest lead times and widest range of configurations possible. We are constantly evaluating and incorporating the latest in metal machining capabilities to remain the market leader in die fabrication capabilities.
  • Non-stick coatings are also available for some catheter tipping die configurations.

Customer-Centric Design

Our catheter tipping dies are designed and manufactured with our customers in mind. Easy mandrel removal and replacement are key features that enable maximized production in your facility.  Mandrels are carefully designed to control tip ID geometry and prevent distal flash in most tip configurations.

  • Nickel catheter tipping dies are used for severe undercuts and other features that cannot be produced in conventional steel dies.
  • Standard catheter tipping dies are made from high quality machined stainless steel for long life and minimal maintenance.
  • Hardened catheter tipping dies are made from a machined wear-resistant and heat treated alloy to withstand the most abusive production environments.
  • Carbide catheter tipping dies are produced for the most severe applications.

Robust Post-Delivery Support

We further support your needs with robust post-delivery support capabilities.  Remote or on-site training for die maintenance, as well as die maintenance supplies and equipment can be purchased from our aftermarket specialists. Our engineering team is also available to provide technical support for your processing and development activities.

Applications

Catheter Urinary Tip with polished eyes

Polished Eye Forming

Polished Eye Forming

Many single-use drainage devices, like urinary drainage catheters, must be designed to prevent tissue damage and the resulting increased chances for serious infections. Patients using these catheters often do not have the sensory capacity to know if their tissues are being damaged or not. They must rely on the device’s design and quality for their own safety. Eyelets with smooth, radiused external edges and consistently shaped IDs are critical design features which requires a precise, repeatable production process. A wide variation in tube sizes, number & orientation of eyelets and eyelet configurations adds extra layers of complexity to the eye forming process.

Vante and PlasticWeld Systems diverse equipment options provide you with unmatched versatility to meet your specific production challenges.

  • Tube OD Range: Tube sizes ranging from 5Fr up to 24Fr
  • Number of Eyelets: up to 4
  • Eyelet Configurations: round and straight-sided ovals of varying lengths & widths
  • Eyelet Orientation: on the same axis or 180 degrees apart
  • Materials: Primarily PVC and some TPEs. Not suitable for rigid polymers
  • Standard Machine Configurations: 1-up, 2-up and 4-up systems depending on project details.

    Catheter Skiving Machine

    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.

    Vante and PlasticWeld Systems diverse equipment options provide you with unmatched versatility to meet your specific production challenges.

    • Tube OD Range: Tube sizes ranging from 3Fr and up
    • Tube configuration: single or multi lumen
    • Eye Configurations: arc segments produced from a round punch
    • Number of eyelets: please consult with your sales agent to discuss your specific requirements
    • Orientation of eyelets: standard is either all aligned on the same axis or 180 degrees apart. Others available – please consult with your sales agent to discuss your specific requirements
    • Materials: Virtually all flexible or non-rigid polymers including PVC, PU, Pebax, PP, LDPE, EVA, PA and others. Not suitable for rigid polymers
    • Standard Machine Configurations: 1-up (single tube processed with each cycle)

        Side Porting

        Many single-use devices utilize side ports as a means for collecting or dispersing fluids, or supporting device deployment / actuation components.  Precise, consistently located side ports 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 side ports  and side porting configurations adds extra layers of complexity to the process.
