Low Cost Crimpers, R&D Crimpers, Heart Valve Crimper - Blockwise Engineering

These simple radial compression machines have no electronics. They are suitable for a variety of applications in medical device manufacturing, R&D labs, and catheter labs. Designed with low-cost fabrication in mind, these crimpers are a bit less accurate and less powerfull than the more expensive Blockwise crimpers, and are available in relatively short working lengths.

General-Purpose, Low-Force – Model RC

The world’s lowest-priced stent crimper. Zero die-to-die gap, easy viewing, variety of actuation methods. Used for many applications including precrimping (sizing) balloon-expandable stents, clamping or holding, and certain self-expanding stent loading applications.
