Drug Eluting Balloon Catheter Processing Technology from Machine Soluctions Inc. Protects Coating Integrity
Machine Solutions Inc. (MSI) is pleased to announce the introduction of integrated protective film technology for balloon pleating and folding/wrapping and fluting processes. The FFS975S Drug Eluting Balloon Catheter Pleating & Folding Equipment is the industry’s first and only system specifically designed for processing DEB/DCB products.
“The market leading FFS technology from Machine Solutions Inc. for pleating and folding low profile angioplasty and stent delivery balloon catheters has moved toward the next frontier of advanced process technology,” said Daniel Kasprzyk, chief executive officer, Machine Solutions Inc. “The FFS975S product family introduces PTFE film protection to assist manufacturers with the complex process challenges facing the next generation of Drug Eluting Balloon catheters.”
The integrated film protects balloon coatings from damage and eliminates the potential for cross contamination that can occur with conventional pleat/fold methods. "The FFS975S expands on our industry leading Form Fold Set technology allowing DEB manufactures to produce balloons with minimal folded profiles while protecting the integrity of the drug coating." This machine combines PLC controlled processing with PC touch screen HMI in a wide range of machine configurations suitable for each manufacturer’s unique product and process requirements.
