The CR-60-HC crimper is a crimper developed for crimping biopolymer stents on balloon catheters.

The system can both heat and cool the stents and has an internal inflation / deflatiom system for optimum stent embedding. This results in high retension forces.

The system is diameter controlled and the products are loaded into the system using a unique product alignment system that allows alignment with the final catheter product outside the crimper head.

The blades are 60 mm long and the maximum opening of the system is 20 mm. It can fully close. Using the unique MPT Europe BV stent crimping technology a big advantage to processing biopolymer stents is the minium relative motion the system has. This puts minimal stresses on the product during the crimping actions.
