Suture Twist Machine
Our Galway team have designed and built an automated Suture twist machine, running at speeds up to 4,000RPM.
A major customer required an innovative solution to replace a manual process, which involved hand-spiralling short length of the low tensile strength suture, used in the manufacture of Class III medical implants.
The new machine incorporates the following features:
- Very compact footprint
- 5-up system for high volume throughput
- Very short set-up times through innovative design
- Automatic suture breakage detection
- Precise tension control
- 7 axes for 5-up spiralling, winding and cross-feeding
- Superior process results
