Since 1985, we have been working closely with medical device manufacturers and their outsourcing medical devices partners in developing new techniques and custom automation for difficult-to-mark products.
Note: Our machines are built to meet clean room regulations.
Printing Equipment for Catheters
Our engineering team can custom design a catheter printer or tube pad printer with a vacuum bed up to 1600mm in length. Our 360° catheter printers can print multiple colors and markings on the outer circumference of catheters or tubes as long as 1600mm in length and as narrow as .025″. We’ve also custom designed pad and inkjet printers for test strip materials, specimen trays, optical lenses, several types and sizes of syringes with in-line pre-and post-treatment devices along with full automation capabilities.
Also available is a newly designed programmable two-axis servo-driven pad printer for marking on multiple sized width and length tubes. The Z-axis servo (vertical stroke) allows various diameter tubes sizes to be programmed along with the appropriate stroke depth. This eliminates the need to manually reset the table depth each time a different diameter tube is ready for printing.
Standard pad and inkjet printers can be customized with automated devices including bulk loading, pre-treatment and auto-on / off-loading. Similar product-marking applications for the medical industry include machines for printing on bandages, syringes, machines for printing on dental equipment and dental tools,
Custom pads are available in any length, size and shape. We carry all the commonly used pads – plus we have a full pad department that will custom design and manufacture a pad for specific application.
