Reinforcement Wire Coils
For medical tubing manufacturers, we fabricate High Pitch and High Index Medical-Grade Reinforcement Wire Coils (“Helical Coils”), which are used for wall reinforcement in their tubing extrusion processes. Our most typical medical device customers are reinforced tubing manufacturers of catheters and cannulas.
- Coil-reinforced medical catheters
A coil-reinforced catheters consists of an elongated tubular outer wall that is reinforced by an internal helical coil spring. By design, coil-reinforced catheter tubes are engineered to provide resistance to kinking or collapsing and to deliver the firmness needed for insertion, yet still maintain their flexibility and pliability for procedural maneuvering.
- Catheter-related Diagnostic Devices
CWT also coils steel wire in the microscopic cross-sections required for catheter-related diagnostic devices (ultra fine wire guide wires and guide wire prototypes).
For Medical Tubing Manufacturing Market
Custom Wire works very close with each customer during the coil design, process engineering and manufacturing phases. Various Coil Configurations are available per design needs.
- Coil-reinforced catheters
- High-performance composite catheters
- Catheter sub-assemblies
High Repeatability and Tight Tolerance Reinforcement Coils
Custom Wire technologies has made a name for itself and grown in the medical device market by offering high-quality engineering and quality. Our army of CNC machinery helps us achieve high levels of automation which in turn leads to high repeatability and tight tolerances.
Advantages of Tubing Reinforcement
Tubing Reinforcement can help provide properties to your tubing which help in a medical setting. Reinforcement can help with outside pressures against your tube. Reinforcement can also allow you to achieve a level of flexibility that a solid tube wouldn’t while providing precise control.
Our experienced technicians specialize in creative solutions and prompt turnaround time for delivering customized coil-reinforced prototypes, as well as full production, printing, clean room assembly and packaging.
