Medical Products​

Relevant Features:

  • High-strength round and flat wires with a very thin diameter to produce catheters and stents

  • Precise tensile strength regulation with fine coil carriers in the voltage range 0.5 N– 5 N

  • Special lubrication with medically approved lubricating oil

  • Very high-quality requirements with our light and precise braiders

  • Exact and even braid structure with a precise gradient

  • Loop function: The loop mode is used to manufacture braided products that vary in pitch and length. Several braiding areas with different lengths and gradients can be preprogrammed over short distances

  • Recipe management to minimize human errors

  • Often dancer-controlled takeups and payoffs to keep core material stress-free
