Balloon Pleat and Fold Equipment Increases Throughput with Dual In-Line Processing
Wed, 08/05/2009 - 10:45am
The FFS760S balloon pleating and folding equipment offers increased throughput and operator efficiency with the use of dual in-line Wavepleat and fold heads, allowing for processing on one set of heads while the other set is being loaded. It is PAC controlled with PC/HMI touchscreen user interface for easy process development and quick product changeover. It includes an integrated vision system, which eliminates manual positioning variability and associated yield loss by automatically positioning balloons into the pleat/fold heads. Additional features include dual automated top loading v-blocks with removable Press-Sure catheter sealing devices, bar code scanning, and servo motor activation.
