Balloon catheter tipping

Balloon catheter tipping is a technique where the tip of a balloon catheter is precisely shaped during the manufacturing process. A balloon catheter is a medical device that is widely used in interventional medical procedures such as angioplasty, thrombus aspiration, and coronary stent placement. These catheters have one or more expandable balloons that are used to dilate blood vessels or other tubes.

The purpose of Balloon catheter tipping is to ensure that the catheter has the proper shape and size to facilitate smooth access and passage through the diseased area while minimizing damage to the vessel wall. The design of the Balloon catheter tipping is critical to providing stable propulsion, accurate balloon positioning, and reducing the risk of complications.

Balloon catheter tipping solutions

The steps involved in Balloon catheter tipping solutions typically include:

Heating&Molding: The Balloon catheter tip is placed into a specifically shaped dies and heat by cathetermelt cm110 catheter tipping machine.

Cooling: After being in the mold or shaped, the balloon catheter tip needs to be cooled to cure the shape.

Inspection: After molding, the Balloon catheter tipping needs to be inspected to ensure that it is dimensionally accurate, correctly shaped, and has a smooth surface free of defects.
