Newsroom: Confluent Announces Significant Investment in ATI Nitinol Melt Expansion


Laguna Niguel, CA, March 21, 2013 – Interface Catheter Solutions DFW-1000 dual fluting and wrapping equipment provides a minimal profile wrapped balloon for catheter manufacturing.   The fluting and wrapping capability has been extended to 300 mm balloon lengths.  The DFW-1000 has a new balloon catheter gripper option and a new iris wrapper for better fluting and wrapping of longer length balloons (.014” platform).

It has a top-loading, pivoting catheter platform to precisely control positioning of the catheter for both fluting and wrapping operation. The DFW-1000 is PLC-controlled with multiple storage programming configurations for more streamlined and simplified set-up and operation. It precisely controls individual blade temperature, closed and open diameter, and dwell time for consistent and repeatable results. Custom-designed and interchangeable fluting and wrapping modules accommodate a wide range of balloon diameters and lengths for increased production capacity.
