BFM-4410-3x: Balloon Forming Machine

The Interface Model BFM-4410-x3 Computerized Balloon Forming Machine is a bench-top system, designed to handle a wide range of tubing sizes and materials. This includes materials such as Polyethylene (PE), Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), Polyurethane (PU), PET and Polyimides, and amides (Nylons). The BFM-4410 -3x provides the capability to form up to three balloons per cycle.

Key Features

  • Capable of producing the most extensive range of balloons in diameters and lengths (0.5 to 52 mm x 0.5 to 360 mm)
  • Ability to produce many unique shapes (cylindrical, spherical, oval, conical, stepped, tapered, and more)
  • Accurate and repeatable results to produce high-quality catheter balloons
  • Ability to form 1, 2, or 3 balloons in one cycle (at one time).
  • If one balloon bursts the other(s) will not be affected.
  • Easy setup and daily operational performance
  • Reduced footprint – one BFM replaces three
  • High-Efficiency triple water jacket for uniform heating and cooling
  • High-precision flow and pressure control during balloon forming
  • Modifying blow-molding processes to control multiple barrels simultaneously unlike any other system sold for Med device balloons.
  • Repeatability of multi-barrel system so all balloons could be included in the same lot.
  • Reduces the number of Balloon Forming Machines for large-volume products/product codes.
  • Designed to handle a wide range of tubing sizes and materials including Polyethylene (PE), Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), Polyurethane (PU), PET and Polyimides, and amides (Nylons).
  • Provides the capability of selecting all balloon-forming parameters and automatically controlling the sequence and timing of up to twenty-four steps in the balloon-forming process.
