R & D/Pilot Line Balloon Catheter Pleating and Folding
The MSI FFS200 offers a simplified machine base utilizing proprietary WavePleat™ technology for balloon pleating and folding. This equipment is ideal for R & D or low-volume production where the folded balloon properties are critical.
The FFS200 operates pneumatically and accepts a wide variety of head lengths and diameters. Each Wavepleat™ head is designed to specific balloon dimensions to ensure accurate and repeatable processing with the lowest possible folded balloon profiles. Compared to hand folding, the thermal properties of the MSI pleat and fold heads may increase balloon refold characteristics.
- Compatibility with automated machine bases (this controls the cost of upgrading to a higher-volume production line.)
- Accurate and repeatable process
- Low folded balloon profiles and uniform pleat length
- Easy diameter adjustment for process development
