Tip Forming and Thermoforming – Re-forming Your Products

Tip Forming

RAUMEDIC has extensive development and manufacturing expertise that can be used to implement your individual requirements for tip geometry. All standard materials and catheter sizes can be processed.

We can produce cylindrical, closed and centrally open versions of different lengths, or variants with inserts (e.g. a titanium ball for optimum recognition in CT/MRI). The flaring of flanges for subsequent connection to moulded parts is also possible, under consideration of the specific requirements.

A Variety of Technologies are Available, Depending on the Material to Be Processed

Schlauch mit aufgeweiteten Enden

Example for thermal forming

Flaring of tube flanges.

Schlauch mit angeformter Spitze

Example of a mechanical tip forming

Forming a tip.

Thermoforming

We are your expert partner for thermal reforming of tubing. A variety of technologies are used, depending on the material. We can produce two- and three-dimensional versions, for example, pigtails or spirals in a broad range of sizes and geometries.

A Variety of Technologies are Used

Bauteil mit Hochfrequenzforming bearbeitet

Example for high frequency (HF) forming

The so-called pigtail is introduced using high frequency forming.

Maschine beim Infrarotformen

Example for infrared (IR) forming

The tubing is rendered formable using infrared heat.

Schlauch mit Temperaturforming bearbeitet

Example for thermal forming

Thermal reforming of tubing.
