Bobbin Winding Machines

Solutions Group: Braiding

Designed to prevent tangles, breaks, kinks and twists during the braid process, SteegerUSA’s fine wire and bobbin winding solutions ensure that bobbin material is levelly loaded onto the spool, with accurate tensioning and strict process control.

These CE compliant machines are designed to accommodate different variants in customer specified requirements such as bobbin loading compacity (quantity), ends per single bobbing, tension load ranges and material payoff reel sizes.

Textile Reinforced Balloon Braider

Traditionally, medical balloons made from materials such as nylon, PEBA, or PET have been limited by their single-layer design. Steeger’s innovative solution involves the integration of a braid structure, resulting in a significant enhancement of strength and achieving higher burst pressures than previously attainable.

3-Up Automated Necking Platform (Model 833B) 

Solutions Group:  Balloon Catheters

This 3-Up Necking Machines reduce the outside diameter of thermoplastic tubes.  Tubing is heated to a temperature at which the yield strength of material is substantially reduced. The dimensional change is then accomplished by stretching the material in an axial direction. Common applications include: catheter shaft neck-down, heat shrink tubing sizing, polymer tubing layering and tubing jacketing (e.g. jacketing S.S. hypotube shafts or wire braids with polymer tubing).

Catheter Testing Pneumatic Roller System

Solutions Group: Testing

Upgrade from the standard roller system.

  • Allows clamp pressure to be consistent through product tappers/ transitions.
  • Easy setup for large multi-sized comparative sample.
  • Can be integrated into IDTE3000 software to allow opening and closing of the clamps throughout a run to better simulate surgeons’ process.
