Balloon Pleating and Folding

MPT Europe BV offers a wide range in balloon pleating and folding equipment. Depending on your needs we will select the most feasible option for you. Ranging from manual PT-serie balloon pleaters to the fully automated PTF-serie balloon pleating and folding machines.

The PTF-type balloon pleating and folding machines are capable of pleating and folding balloons up to 300 mm. For the longer balloons we offer automated tensioning systems (f.e. PTF-240-T).With those tensioning systems the innerbodies are kept straight and tensioned during pleating and folding and this results in extremely good folding of long balloons.

 

Heated pleating blades are optional. In that case the temperature of each blade is individually controlled . The pleating modules can be quickly exchanged. Setups of 3, 4 , 5 or 6 fold pleats are possible. The machines are fitted with a unique product clamp system that allows processing of balloon components and finished products without changing the setup. The PTF-type machines have position and force controlled folding heads with Medical Production Technology Europe BV zero-gap technology.

The latest developments include fully foil protected systems were the balloons do not come into contact with the blades directly but are always protected with a very thin foil.
