With this FSCP platform we have created a machine that enables the R&D engineers to develop an accurate stent crimping process and perform all sorts of stent crimping testing.
The base of the machine is the MPT Europe BV zero-gap stent crimping head. This reliable, stiff and accurate stent crimping head is servo controlled.
Furthermore the machine has two working platforms available at either side of the crimping head, that allow for user-specific modules. Pneumatic and digital IO are available on each platform. The platforms themselves have integrated loadcell systems to measure pulling and pushing forces accurately. All pneumatics can be controlled by easily accessible pressure and flow reducing valves.
All functions and motions are controlled with the unique Flexible Process Interface (FPI) interface. This FPI interface, that was originally developed for the MPT Europe BV Balloon Forming Machine BFM-500-S, has proven to be so good that it was requested to be utilized in more applications to provide ultimate flexibility in development of process cycles.
As always with the MPT Europe BV machines the level of quality is very high and designed to be low maintenance.
