Metal tubing

Flexible metal tubing formed by single/multifilar/multilayer coil, designed to balance flexibility, elongation resistance, and torsional rigidity by adjusting numbers of filar/layer.

INNER TUBE

PTFE and other fluoropolymer-type inner tube assembly for reduced friction and enhanced device delivery

TORQUE COIL or ACT ONE

Flexible cable tubes and torque coils for 1:1 torque transmission

OUTER COATING

Several types of outer coatings for increased lubricity, sealing and (electrical) insulation

LASER WELDING

Laser- and solder weld assembly services to combine different mechanical properties in one device

TORQUE HYPOTUBE

“Torque” hypotubes for high pushability and 1:1 torque transmission

Braided shaft

The braided shaft is designed to realize the best balance of flexibility, pushability, and deliverability for complex catheter manufacturing.

PTFE LINER

Thinnest wall (8μm) realize excellent lubricity and chemical resistance for smooth delivery

TIE LAYER

Thin thermoplastic Tie layer (8μm) enhance adhesion to reduce delamination

BRAID-REINFORCED SHAFT

Reinforcement with SS304, 66PA, PEEK and more for kink resistance and pushability

VARIABLE DUROMETER TUBE

Linear transition between delicately soft tip to a hard proximal end to realize excellent trackability

Answers Questions

All components are custom-made. Off the shelf products are not available. Contact us for a bespoke offer.

Our custom-made wire rope and sIngle-layer cable tubes such as ACT-ONE have an average lead-time of four weeks. For more complex cable tubes and sub-assemblies, six to eight weeks should be expected.

ACT-ONE cable tubes OD range is between 0.2 mm - 4.0 mm. For more information, please contact us!

The MOQ is 20 parts for cut components or 1,000 m for spool-based products such as wirerope.

Price depends on quantity, complexity and optional treatments. Please contact us for more information.

All prototype phase products are made at the Osaka R&D Center in Japan. For orders above 1,000 parts, production is usually transferred to our Thailand or Vietnam factories.
