Automated Catheter Balloon Pleating & Folding Machine - PTF-240-A
The PTF-240-A is a fully automated machine and can pleat and fold balloons with a length of approx. 100 mm. The balloon products are clamped on a stable product table with automatic positioning using stepper motors.
- 10” color touch panel interface with parameter setting and
- Servo controlled zero gap fold head with stainless tool steel
blades and high-wear resistant low friction coating.
- Innovative design for quickly exchanging the pleater setup from
3- ,4- ,5- or 6-pleats.
- The PTF-240-A is built with a very high-quality benchmark
resulting in a stable and robust design with minimal cost of
- Easy to use user interface software with recipe control. Barcode
scanners support as standard.
- Fold head heating is standard and optionally the pleater modules
can be fitted with a heating system.
- The design is optimized for use in cleanrooms and can be very
easily wiped and cleaned due to the smooth and closed surfaces.
