Marker Band Positioners / Precrimping Machines - Blockwise Engineering

The Blockwise marker band positioners / precrimpers are tabletop machines that slide bands along a catheter inner member or other substrate to position them, then lightly precrimp the bands into a hexagonal or triangular shape to hold them in position prior to swaging.

Automatic Control – Model PMC
