RDX COATING SYSTEM

The RDX Coating System from Harland Medical Systems is a development/pilot production scale, economical coater for applying ultraviolet cured medical device coatings. Available in two models, the RDX coaters integrate both dip coating and curing in one compact unit.

RDX Series Coaters are ideal for coating catheters, guidewires, introducers, and similar medical devices. The modular construction means you can select from pre-engineered feature packages and automation options you need for your particular application without the long lead times and high costs associated with custom designed equipment.

Dip Process

A servo controlled motion column lowers a cassette of devices into individual solution tubes. These tubes are removable and disposable to help keep coating solution fresh. You program the immersion speed, immersion distance and extraction speed that is right for your device and coating chemistry. The J-shaped solution tubes allow you to coat long devices without the need for unusually high ceiling clearance. The deck of solution tube openings can be configured to a height convenient for your device length. And for coating shorter lengths a Straight Dip configuration can be used.

A Dual Solution option accommodates two separate solutions for those coating technologies requiring two unique fluids.

Cure Process

The UV Cure Sources produce a flood of the proper spectrum UV light to cure today’s coating chemistries. To assure uniform cure, the parts individually rotate in front of the UV sources. Each source can cure 25 cm of part length. Sources can be added into pre-wired compartments to coat up to 170 cm of device length. An automatic cover closes over the solution tube funnel openings to protect light-sensitive coating solution from UV exposure during curing.

A mechanical shutter opens and closes for precise control of cure time. When this shutter is closed and no curing is underway, UV sources can be reduced to standby power to conserve energy and extend bulb life.

CoatingWorks™ Software

The versatile, intuitive Harland CoatingWorks software helps you program each operation of the RDX coater. Coater actions are selected from a menu and added to the coating sequence. These protocols can then be stored in memory for future use. After programming, firmware takes over the actual operation of the coater. Program creation and editing are password protected.

Dip Process

A servo controlled motion column lowers a cassette of devices into individual solution tubes. These tubes are removable and disposable to help keep coating solution fresh. You program the immersion speed, immersion distance and extraction speed that is right for your device and coating chemistry. J-shaped or L-shaped solution tubes allow you to coat long devices without the need for unusually high ceiling clearance. The deck of solution tube openings can be configured to a height convenient for your device length. And for coating shorter lengths a Straight Dip configuration can be used. A Dual Solution option accommodates two separate solutions for those coating technologies requiring two unique fluids.

Cure Process

The UV Cure Sources produce a flood of the proper spectrum UV light to cure today’s coating chemistries. To assure uniform cure, the parts individually rotate in front of the UV sources. Each source can cure 25 cm of part length. Sources can be added into pre wired compartments to handle up to 170 cm of device length. An automatic cover closes over the solution tube funnel openings to protect light-sensitive coating solution from UV exposure during curing.

A mechanical shutter opens and closes for precise control of cure time. When this shutter is closed and no curing is underway, UV sources can be reduced to standby power to conserve energy and extend bulb life.

PCX COATING SYSTEM

Harland Medical Systems presents the PCX Series Coating System for applying and curing ultraviolet-cured medical device coatings. The PCX coater integrates both dip coating and curing in one compact unit. Ideal for coating catheters, guidewires, introducers, and similar medical devices. The pre-engineered modules mean you can select the feature packages and automation levels you need for your particular application, without the long lead times associated with custom-designed equipment.

The PCX Coating Station contains two processing chambers – left and right. A removable cassette holds up to 12 parts in each chamber. A dipping module and a curing module shuttle back and forth between the processing chambers. While one set of 12 parts is being dipped, the cure module is curing a second set of parts in the other chamber. This simultaneous processing provides near continuous processing for the operator.

Dip Module

The Dip Coating module holds a vertical motion column that lowers a pallet of devices into individual solution tubes. The PCX Coating System uses U-shaped tubes, meaning you can coat long devices without the need for unusually high ceiling clearance. And for shorter coated lengths, a Straight Dip configuration is available. These tubes are removable and disposable to help keep your coating solution fresh. You have the ability to program the immersion speed, immersion distance, and extraction speed that is right for your device and coating chemistry. An optional alignment comb automatically keeps parts aligned with solution tubes and can also serve as an Autofeeder to assist parts into solution tubes. A Dual Solution option accommodates two separate solutions for those coating technologies requiring two unique fluids. Other optional dipping accessories monitor coating solution level, replenish depleted fluid and measure critical solution properties.

Cure Module

The UV Cure Module produces a flood of the proper spectrum UV light to cure today’s coating chemistries. In order to assure uniform curing, the parts rotate individually in front of the UV light sources. These sources are arranged in stacked pairs with each pair curing 25 cm of part length. Sources can be added to coat up to 170 cm of device length.

A shutter opens and closes for precise control of cure time. When this shutter is closed and no curing is underway, UV sources can be reduced to standby power to conserve energy and extend bulb life.

Easy Loading

Uncoated devices are loaded, 12 at a time, into the coater on a removable cassette. After starting the fresh devices through their coating process, finished devices can be removed from the opposite side of the coater and new uncoated devices loaded.

Remote Access

With connection to internet, PCX Coater can be operated remotely for service and training.

GWX COATING SYSTEM

Harland Medical Systems presents the GWX Series Coating System for applying and curing ultraviolet and heat cured medical device coatings. The GWX coater integrates both dip coating and curing in one compact unit and is ideal for coating catheters, guidewires, introducers, and other similar medical devices.

The pre-engineered modules mean you can select the feature packages and automation levels you need for your particular application, without the long lead times and high costs associated with custom-designed equipment.

Dip Module

The GWX Series Coating Systems are designed to coat low column strength devices, such as guide- wires and small diameter catheters up to 180 cm in length. By raising the solution tubes up, the devices remain stationary and do not follow a bend, allowing them to remainstraight in their strongest position. As the tubes rise, coating solution flows through the solution tubes to assist the parts into the solution. The dipping module then lowers at a precise rate to accurately apply the coating. And the coating solution is maintained at a constant level as solution is consumed while coating the parts.

Cure Module

The GWX coater can be equipped with an ultraviolet cure module, a heat cure module, or both. The cure module slides into position and surrounds your parts after dipping, so there is no need for a separate curing oven. The GWX can provide both heat and UV energy to supply whatever your coating chemistry demands. Heat or UV cure can be simply selected in the Harland CoatingWorks™ protocol creation program.

UV Cure
The UV Cure Module produces a flood of the proper UV wavelength light to cure today’s UV-cured coating chemistries. Cool operation of UV sources minimizes heat buildup and a built-in radiometer monitors UV intensity and sounds an alarm if intensity drops below a set level.

Heat Cure
The cure module can also provide heat for thermally cured coatings. Moving air helps maintain temperature from top to bottom.
