10-up Catheter Laminating Machine (1010A)


Using Beahm Designs hallmark hot air technology, this system delivers strictly controlled heated air while traversing process appropriate thermal nozzles at a precisely regulated speed. Results in highly repeatable, uniform laminations of medium to long-length catheter shafts. Process repeatability, high yield and uniformity are further reinforced with the use of tubing centering guides to ensure accurate catheter centering within the heat zone.

Traverse speed and length settings are entered via touch-screen HMI and a motion controller ensures precision and repeatability. This system is capable of multiple length and speed transitions within a single cycle and within the heat zone, and independent temperature control of each thermal nozzle. The 810A prevents the longitudinal elongation and uneven recovery problems associated with oven use. As well as incidence of hot or cold spots during the shrinking process.

Functional Overview:

The materials are secured between each end clamp. Upon activation of the process cycle, the thermal nozzle advances to the materials and then traverses along their length at a controlled speed. The outer heat shrink layer is then stripped away.

This system gives you:

  • Consistent laminations.
  • Process Control (ie temperature, traverse rate, expand pressure)
  • Adjustable Load Height
  • Touchscreen HMI with storage for up to 100 recipes
  • Full EH&S Safety Enclosure
  • Pneumatic parallel actuated product grips.
  • 6 speed and length zones.
  • Adjustable grip pressure.
  • Interchangeable grip heads.
