MARKERBAND SWAGING AND POSITIONING

We can provide you with both manual and automatic swaging systems.

The VCT-series crimper is a modular design concept of swaging unit and markerband positioning / precrimp unit.

The VCT-series crimper has been developed for accurate and operator indepent assembly and swaging of markerbands on a innerbody. The tool has been fitted with a sophisticated vision system using a telecentric measuring lens. A LED lighting module provides an evenly distributed amount of light for the vision system to perform accurate measurements of the the markerband positions and the tip end of the innerbody.

The VCT-EX series crimper has been developed for to handle the longer marker distances and is fitted with a modular rapid exchange precrimp unit. This enables switching products without the need for readjusting and realinging parts.

The tool is equipped with a PLC controller for machine level control and a IPC with a touchpanel for operator interface and the vision application. A number of servo motors will position the individual parts within narrow specification. The tool will precrimp the marker bands onto the innerbody. After the positioning and precrimping is completed the assembled product is fed to a swaging unit. This unit will swage the markers into the innerbody. The transport speed is accuratly controlled. The product is fed through the swaging unit. The operator can insert the next product before the previous product is completed, thus reducing cycle times.

BALLOON PLEATING AND FOLDING

MPT Europe BV offers a wide range in balloon pleating and folding equipment.
Depending on your needs we can select the most feasible option, from manual PT-serie pleaters to the fully automated PTF-serie machines.

The PTF-machines are capable of pleating and folding balloons up to 300 mm. The machines can optionally be equipped with pleater modules with heated pleats. The pleater modules can be quickly exchanged and 3, 4 , 5 or 6 fold pleats are possible. The machines are fitted with a unique product clamp system that allows processing of balloon components and finished products without changing setup. The PTF-machines have position and force controlled folding heads with MPT Europe BV zero-gap technology.
 
If you are not yet at a point you require fully automated machines we offer manual and semi automated equipment.

The PT-series manual pleat tools have been developed for quick and reliable make evenly distributed pleats in balloons. The tools are easy to use and gives a repeatable pleat in the balloons. The tools operate in conjunction with the inflation/deflation tool. We can provide designs optimized for use with drug coated stents that have optimized cleaning properties. Also additional support rigs can be provided to prevent drug coating beeing scraped from the balloon surfaces during processing.

HEATED DIE BONDING MACHINES

The BT-series bonders have been developed for trouble free production. The design is robust and reliable. The tool is accurate in both die and product positioning. The bonding die is mounted in an interchangeable unit. This eases maintenance, and with an additional unit makes fast switching between products possible without having to mechanically readjust dies. It is now also possible to service the bonding dies without production loss. The tool is equipped with a PLC controller. Optionally the bonding parameters can be set to preprogrammed values, including automatic temperature setting. Advanced temperature controllers will keep the set die temperature within close limits. The tool is fitted with a miniature color camera system and LCD screen for aiding positioning and inspecting the bonded product. It gives a significant ergonomical advantage over conventional microscope systems.

The BT-series bonder has been developed for economical production of small series and for R&D applications. The tool combines the accuracy of the BS-series tooling with the extra functionality of triple bonding cavities in the die set. These triple cavities are not intended for three-fold production output, but for a highly flexible tool use. Three different bonds can now be made on one tool without refitting bonding dies. Similar to the BS-series the bonding die set has been fitted in a interchangeable unit. This eases maintenance, and with an additional unit makes fast switching between products possible without having to mechanically readjust dies. It is now also possible to service the bonding dies without production loss. The tool is equipped with a PLC controller. The bonding parameters are set to the preprogrammed values when selecting the active bond cavity. Two advanced temperature controllers will keep the set die temperature within close limits. Optionally the tool can be fitted with a miniature color camera system with LCD screen for aiding positioning and inspecting the bonded product. It gives a significant ergonomical advantage over conventional microscope systems.

RFM-60 RADIAL FORCE MEASUREMENT

The radial compression method is recommended by the FDA for radial stiffness and radial strength testing. Compared to the conventional flat plate or V-block method the results are much more realistic to the in vivo situation.

The system uses a crimping head technology specially developed by MPT Europe BV for having zero gap and accurate diameter control. The radial force head can be contected to multiple available standard tensile testing machines (for example Zwick or Instrom) .  Precise measurement of the forces exerted on the stent / sample can be performed.

The systems can be delivered with heated or with cooled blades.

STENT CRIMPING TECHNOLOGY

MPT Europe has developed crimping systems for all today’s stent materials. The crimping systems use the zero-gap crimping head technology.  The heads can fully close and can be made with heated and cooled blades.  Depending on the requirements the systems are manual, pneumatic or servo controlled (+/- 0.01 mm) and can be made in lengths upto 300 mm length.

INSPECTION OF GEOMETRY AND SINGLE WALL THICKNESS

The VBT-serie balloon geometry testing equipment is designed for a fast measurement of balloon profiles of inflated balloons. The VBT tooling is equiped with a sophisticated vision system using a large field of view (63 mm) using a telecentric measuring lens. The VBT-LS version has been fitted with a linescanning system. It can measure balloons upto 150 mm A lighting module provides an evenly distributed amount of light for the vision system to perform accurate measurements of the the balloon transition points and diameter. The tool is controlled by a PC. The user interface is easy to understand and makes it possible to generate your own test programs. All the balloon geometry specifications are stored in a data file. The inflation pressure (1 to 30) for the balloons can be programmed using a macro-language. With this languages a test program can be composed with delays, pressure steps and measuring points. The tool will register the actual pressure when taking a measurement. All measurement data can be stored, and reports can be generated per lot number.

The VBT-LS serie balloon geometry testing equipment is designed for a fast measurement of balloon profiles of inflated balloons, as well as measurement of the wall thickness of the balloon. The VBT-LS tooling is equiped with a sophisticated vision system using a line scanning camera system (180-200 mm FOV). It also has a sensor probe for measuring the wall thickness of the balloons without contact (single and multi layer). The geometry information of the balloon that is measured with the vision system is used for positioning the wall thickness measuring probe. Positioning takes place fully automatic with a XYZ servo system. Optionally the tool can be fitted with a product rotation system that allows for 360 degrees balloon inspection. There are two modules available (finished product with hub connector or balloon component) Measurements are very accurate and repeatable (aprox. 0.0005 mm). The tool is controlled by a PC. The user interface is easy to understand and makes it possible to generate your own test programs. All the balloon geometry specifications are stored in a data files and can be exported to Excel. The inflation pressure (1 to 30) for the balloons can be programmed using a macro-language. With this languages a test program can be composed with delays, pressure steps and measuring points. The tool is equipped with a PLC controller for machine level control and a PC for operator interface. The tool will register the actual pressure when taking a measurement. All measurement data can be stored, and reports can be generated per lot number.
