Balloon Forming Machine

Brand new Balloon Forming Machine (Balloon Blower, Balloon Blowing Machine) from Blockwise Engineering incorporates innovative heating technology, cycle times are about 1/4 that of current market leading machines. A balloon that requries 8 minutes to form on the competitor machine requires only 2 mintues using the Blockwise BFM! Visit us at our booth to discuss balloon forming. If you won't visit Compamed then let's schedule a balloon forming demonstration video call at your convenience.

Marker Band Swager

The industry’s most precise marker band swager. The Blockwise band swager’s geometry-controlled (not force-controlled) process accomplishes a precise swaged diameter. Automated product feeding into the die ensures band swaging diameters are highly repeatable. This machine is an ideal solution for production environments.

Marker Band Positioner / Pre-crimper

The Blockwise PX2 Marker Band Loader is the world's first machine to fully automate loading of marker bands with consistent and reliable positioning and pre-crimping, in preparation for subsequent swaging.
During recipe operation, marker bands are loaded and indexed from an automated hopper, moved precisely into position, and pre-crimped onto the product. The PX2 operates in single product mode or with the optional Tray Loader for higher volume production.

The PX2 is designed to run a wide dimensional variety of products using a custom marker band module designed for your band dimensions to ensure reliable loading and pre-crimping.

Tube Stretcher (Parison Former)

The Blockwise Model TSE “Tube Stretcher” Parison Forming Machine is designed to automatically stretch raw tubing extrusions into a parison for use in the balloon blow molding (balloon forming) process. Model TSE “Tube Stretcher” uses the newest Blockwise radial compression mechanism to heat the tubing prior to stretching for contact-based heating on tubing sizes up to 10 mm. The radial compression mechanism provides repeatable process control with shorter process times and sharper parison transitions when compared to noncontact parison forming machines. A touchscreen
HMI provides quick and easy control over the entire process. The Blockwise TSE may be used to prepare parisons for processing on other brands of balloon forming machines.

The cycle time to process a typical 20 mm long PTCA balloon parison is expected to be around 20 – 25 seconds, including loading and unloading the machine.

Stent Loading Machines

Blockwise’s innovative self-expanding stent loaders will help you process even the most difficult stents. Our stent loaders vary from highly automated machines to simple yet powerful manual mechanisms. A stent loading machine generally consists of a compression mechanism to reduce the diameter of the stent, and a gripper for holding the delivery catheter. It may also have a pushrod system, or a cooling system for keeping the compressed nitinol stent from expanding.

Heart Valve Crimper

An injection-molded crimping tool sized for crimping of prosthetic aortic heart valves, but is suitable for many applications in medical device manufacturing, R&D labs, and catheter labs.
The RSS is useful for clamping and holding cylindrical objects with even pressure.  It is also suitable as a many-use or single-use disposable crimper in certain applications. Several customers are using it to load or crimp small stents made of Nitionol or Magnesium.

Model RSS crimping tools have 10 dies made from POM acetal copolymer blended with PTFE lubricant. This new and proprietary type of compression mechanism has exceptional mechanical advantage and relatively low internal friction, results in the strongest hand-actuated crimper available. This crimper is not available with an adjustable mechanical closed-stop, but may be ordered with a factory-installed fixed closed stop.

Large discounts are available on high-quantity orders.
