Tube Tip Forming / Assembly
Tube Tip Form and Assembly Examples:
Polyflon is a Contract Manufacturer of thermoformed tubing components for Minimally Invasive Medical Devices and a contract assembler of medical tubing and connectors to customer specification.
Our precision tip formed tubing components and tube/fitting assemblies are all produced, inspected and packaged in our Class 7 cleanroom.
Tube Tip Geometry, Shape & Style:
|Cutting||Tip Forming||Side Holes||Bonding*|
|Clean & square||Closed tip||Burr-free drilled round, through one or both walls||Tube mat’ls of differing hardnesses heat fused together giving seamless transition|
|2D & 3D angled||Open tip||Skived, burr-free with sharp edges||Surface activation of low surface energy mat’ls with corona treatment*|
|Laser cut to maintain micro-bores below 50µm||Soft tip||Thermoformed with soft rounded edges||Plasma treatment*|
|Flanges: circular, elliptical, square, oval||Punched, round or oblong||Plasma etching, all with USP Class VI medical grade adhesives – UV or air curable*|
|Irregular 3D shapes|
|Atraumatic ID/OD radii|
|Tapered tip, L50mm max|
*Tubing assemblies, of which the above tip formed tubing components could form a part, are possible. Suitable surface treatments can be determined by Polyflon in-house experimentation should bonding be required.
Note: Some grades of the generic materials above may not be gamma or steam compatible; additives may be required in some cases.
