The suture-cutting and -tipping machine Fibapic can be used for most polymer sutures, including absorbable polyglycol acid, polyester, and polyethylene products. In order to avoid blooming, the machine seals the suture ends. The cutting of the suture is designed to avoid flattening, so the suture tips keep their circular shape. Neither additives nor glue are needed, making the device almost maintenance free.A dditional features include oblique cutting; knot detection; removal of insecure, stiffened suture tips; and active control of suture diameter at the stiffening area. The stainless steel case surrounding the cutter prevents dust and airflow from entering the sealing and cutting unit. The process ensures that tight tolerances are met and maintaining suture cleanliness.Optionally, the device also cuts supple monofilaments. The equipment's operating speed is higher with monofilaments than with braided sutures.
