Q1. How does the tip forming machine work and is the product quality stable?

  • First, the catheter and core wire are placed in the mold cavity, and the mold is heated to a certain temperature using induction heating technology. Then, the linear actuator drives the catheter to tightly adhere to the mold cavity at the tip end of the catheter and forming it. The mold is quickly cooled with cold air to solidify the tip of the catheter, and then the product is unload.
  • To ensure stable processing quality, we use standard stainless steel or nickel-based alloy mold materials and perform certain polishing processes to make the inner surface of the cavity smooth. In addition, we also use high-quality induction heating driver boards combined with PID temperature control to better ensure stable processing quality.

Q2. Is it easy to demold the product after long-term use?

  • The best approach is to use appropriate mold materials and surface treatments during the design phase, combined with proper equipment programming, which should not be a major problem.
  • When Struggling to demold, using some mold releases agents that meet biocompatibility requirements can also help improve the demolding efficiency.

Q3. What are the advantages of this machine compared to your peers?

  • We have certain advantages when it comes to small-diameter catheter and wire products, such as catheters as small as 3Fr or coated guidewire, where we have had successful experiences.
  • Our standard machine is driven by linear actuator, which is more stable than cylinders and easy to switch between different products for production. Additionally, our equipment is compact and easy to operate.

Q4. What should be considered when choosing a tip forming equipment?

  • 1.Customize the appropriate catheter mold according to the product, calculate the inductance value, and match the coil specification with the power output.
  • 2.The induction heating driver board is also a very important core component, so be sure to select a stable industrial-grade one. Some of the PCB boards available on Taobao may be unsafe and prone to overheating during use.
  • 3.Try to choose a manufacturer with corresponding technical reserves, such as Machine Solutions and CATHTIP, or of course, our machine is also a good choice. Some customers may be impressed by certain advertising videos, but the equipment they receive may not be easy to use after a period of time, with “flash” or the mold becoming difficult to demold, both of which are closely related to the machine.

Q5. There is a purchasing plan for this type of machine, what to do next?

  • Confirm the size of the mold and the machine configuration.
  • Confirm the product samples.
  • Sign a business contract and proceed with production and delivery.

Q6.How to ensure that our product information is kept confidential and will not be seen by other peers?

  • Before doing anything else, we need to confirm that we will not compete with our customers by making related products or acting as contract manufacturers. We can sign a standard confidentiality agreement for the product, and any technical information obtained during communication with the customer will not be disclosed to third parties.
