Catheter Tube Forming Machine Process

Catheter Tube Forming Machine Process’s basic steps typically include heating, molding, cooling, and demolding. These steps are described in detail below:

Heating: During the heating stage, the tubing is heated to its plasticizing temperature, which is a temperature state that allows the plastic material to become soft and moldable without reaching the melting point. Heating can be accomplished in a variety of ways, such as using hot air, infrared rays, electric heaters, or an oil bath. The key is to heat uniformly to avoid localized overheating or underheating of the pipe.

Molding: After heating, the tubing softens and is ready for molding. It is placed in a mold with the desired tip shape or bent to the desired angle using a robotic arm. In some cases, air blowing (similar to blow molding) or the use of other tools may be utilized to aid in shaping.

Cooling: After molding, the pipe needs to be cooled to cure its shape. Cooling is usually done in the mold to ensure that the accuracy of the molding is maintained. This process must be properly controlled to prevent shrinkage or distortion of the material. Cooling is usually accomplished by circulating water or air.

Demolding: Once the pipe has cooled and cured, it is removed from the mold. This should be done carefully to ensure that the newly molded tip is not damaged.

Precautions: The following factors must be carefully controlled throughout the Catheter Tube Forming Machine process:

Temperature: The heating temperature must be precisely controlled to ensure that the tube is heated uniformly over the entire heating zone to avoid localized overheating or underheating. CatheterMelt catheter tipping machine use closed loop temperature feedback and temeperature repeatable to ±1-2℃.

Time: The heating and cooling times have a direct impact on the quality of the final product. Too little time may result in insufficient softening of the material, while too much time may result in degradation of material properties.

Pressure: In some Catheter Tube Forming Machine processes, pressure may need to be applied to aid in shaping, especially in blow molding. CatheterMelt torque sensor catheter tipping machine solve this issue and helps you easlit control the press.

Material Properties: Different materials have different Catheter Tube Forming Machine properties, such as thermal stability, elasticity, hardness, etc. Heating and cooling parameters must be adjusted according to the material properties.

Mold design: Molds must be designed to withstand high temperatures while accurately forming the desired shape of the tube tip. Our professional technologist has rich experience to offer best service for you.
