Braid – Stainless, Tungsten or Polymer
Braided materials can be more complicated then many people understand. There are many aspects of the braiding process and carrier configurations along with wire sizes and pic rates.
Diameter of core materials, Picks per inch, Angle of the wire, number of wires, diameter of wires, pattern (eg diamond, full or half), configuration (eg 1 over 2), triaxial fibers, etc.
We have 16 and 32 carrier vertical and horizontal machines and can braid up to 64 wires per catheter and with single or dbl filer combinations
At Minnesota MedTec we make braiding look easy and can offer braided catheters or just simple braid alone from a variety of materials and sizes.
