Quantum RF Catheter Tipping Machine


The Quantum is a tabletop tipping machine designed to produce superior outputs expected of the CATHTIP standard. Our state-of-the-art, precision catheter forming systems produce the highest quality parts with speed and consistency. Achieve flashless tips, smooth bonds, and exacting geometry with virtually all thermoplastic materials. Produce a wide range of applications – flares, flanges, angular welds, bonds, multi-lumen shape transitions, butt welds, balloon to catheter welds, neck downs, soft-tip fusion, metal-to-tube adhering, sheaths, dilators, radio-opaque, strain relief bonds, swaged metal needle guides, tube-in-tube bonds, etc.
