Marker Band Swaging - Blockwise Engineering

The Blockwise marker band swaging machines, models SGA and SGB are tabletop machines that swage radiopaque marker bands on a tube. A complete band attachment process typically comprises: “positioning” the bands, “precrimping” the bands into a triangular or hexagonal shape to prevent them moving on the tube, and “swaging” the bands – radially hammering them many times to reduce the diameter and make the bands round and smooth. “Precrimping” prevents the band moving along the tube during swaging.

Single Product Loading - Models SGA & SGB

The world’s most precise swager. Geometry-controlled (not force-controlled) process provides precise swaged diameter. Automated product feeding into the die ensures swaging diameters are highly repeatable, ideal for production.

Tray Loading - Models SGA & SGB

Tray Loader attachment dramatically reduces the time needed to load and unload products into the machine. Greatly increase machine productivity.

Swager Simple - Models SGL & SGS

Uses the same swaging dies as the SGA & SGB. Products are fed by hand into the swaging die. A great low-cost option for low-volume swaging. Can be upgraded to a swaging machine with touch-screen recipe control and automated product feeding.
