Self Expandable Stent Crimper - CR-150


The CR-150 Stent Crimping Machine is developed for the crimping and transfer into the delivery system of self-expandable stents up to 120 mm length with a maximum diameter of approx. 20 mm.


  • Automatic stent loading with cradle system
  • Servo controlled stent crimping head with Zero Gap technology
  • Exchangeable pusher rods and delivery system holders for various stent diameters
  • 10” user interface with recipe control
  • The CR-150 is built with a very high-quality benchmark resulting in a stable and robust design with minimal cost of ownership.
  • CR-150 stent crimper can be easily calibrated using the one-point automatic diameter calibration function built into the system. Calibration in seconds.
  • Full process data logging to the internal PC system and transfer possibly to external USB for registration or analysis.
