Catheter Hole Forming Tool: Flex-Drill
Make clean and fast catheter holes for research and development with ease.
Flex-Drill by CATHTIP is the most flexible, cost-effective option for hole forming in catheter prototypes and early development applications.
The Flex-Drill is handheld or mounted, and operated by a foot pedal.
Operators can quickly and easily try new hole diameters or patterns in a variety of different tubing materials.
Enjoy smooth core evacuation and a clean workstation with the same superior Flow Thru™ drill bit technology found in all CATHTIP’s hole forming machines.
