Stent crimping machines
MPT Europe has developed stent crimping machines for all today’s stent materials.We have solutions for both balloon expandable and self-expandable stent systems.
The stent crimping systems use the MPT designed zero-gap stent crimping head technology. The latest types of stent crimpers have very stiff crimping heads and show remarkable stability during the crimping. Automatic calibration and dynamic force / diameter compensation are available on the servo controlled models.
The heads always fully close and can be made with heated and / or cooled blades. Depending on the requirements the systems are manual, pneumatic or servo controlled (+/- 0.02 mm @ 100N radial) and can be made in lengths up to 300 mm length
The stent crimping heads have by design a very little relative motion to the product. That feature helps crimping stents without damaging the surfaces and has proven to be superior to other stent crimping machines.
The stent crimping heads are all coated with a very high wear – low friction coating resulting in excellent wear resistance and extremely low friction on for example the nitinol stent pushing systems.
The machines are always customized to fit your exact needs. A number of standard machines can be modified or a completly new design will be made.
