Micro-extruder tailored to run fluoropolymer tubing, devices

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013 | Permalink

A new 16-mm micro extruder has been expressly designed to process fluoropolymers for miniature medical device applications such as fine wire jacketing for neuromodulation, microdialysis tubing and neonatal intravenous (IV) catheter tubing. American Kuhne Inc. (Ashaway, RI), which created the extruder, noted that these applications typically require an extruder that can process high-performance fluoropolymers like ETFE, PFA and FEP, at very low volumes down to 3.4 g/min (.45 lb/hr).

Laser auxiliary targets precision medical extrusion

Monday, April 15th, 2013 | Permalink

New precision equipment is emerging to meet growing quality control demands for producing tight tolerance micro extruder catheters and other types of tubing made from medical plastics. A data accessory called “Pinpoint Capture” from Pinpoint Laser Systems (Peabody, Ma) supplements Laser Microgage industrial measuring and laser alignment systems. It is said to allow operators to quickly grab measurement readings from as many as four remote laser receivers to analyze the alignment and performance of extrusion and other industrial equipment.
