Vante Saffire

The Vante SAFFIRE catheter tip forming machine utilizes precision energy control and heat placement. It is specifically designed for catheter manufacturing. The generator features a large color touch screen. This allows the operator to view operating cycle parameters and temperature feedback. Our NEW proprietary inductive heating technology allows higher temperatures while significantly extending the life of the heater. The Vante SAFFIRE catheter tip forming machine consists of a model 4200 RF generator and one of two forming platforms depending on insertion force requirements. All platforms can be teamed with a variety of tipping, welding, and forming molds for many different applications.

Saffire Benefits:

  • Turn key solution. Vante application engineers certify that parts meet your drawing specification prior to shipment.
  • Change molds and process a different application within seconds. Two screws release the tooling. Heaters and thermocouples are contained within each mold so no adjustment is necessary!
  • Robust and repeatable process utilizing Patented closed loop temperature control
  • System design allows for temperature gradients from 350C to ambient within 0.5mm. This enables designers to create high tolerance applications and limit flash by stopping plastic flow.
  • Low mass molds enable faster cycle times
  • Can process single or multi-lumen catheters with diameters of less than 0.020” (0.5MM)
  • Designed to process applications from 2Fr to 60Fr
  • Ideal for high tolerance, small diameter applications
  • Ideal for braid to non-braid bonds to reduce risk of braid exposure
  • Air cooled/no water chillers
  • Validated system software
  • Small footprint
  • Built for integration into automation cells
