We invent, design, develop, build, and sell
specialized equipment for manufacturing, mostly for the medical catheter /
balloon / stent industry. We strive to understand the relationships
between product, process, and equipment, so that we can make the most
capable equipment and help our customers to achieve highest quality and
lowest cost manufacturing processes. We use complexity sparingly in our designs, where we can see that it will

productivity. Our simple designs, however, are born of sophisticated
engineering analysis and mathematical models.
