Model SGL (standard) and SGS (high-force) Swaging Machines
Simple, manually fed, rotary swaging machines used to attach radiopaque marker bands to catheters,
and other applications in medical device manufacturing
- Proven durability and diameter consistency
- Easy Operation
- Upgradable to Touchscreen HMI version
- Very easy die replacement for product changeover
Simple model SGL/SGS has no automatic product feeder. The operator’s hand slowly feeds the product into the swaging die. Extremely consistent swaged diameter results from patented geometry-controlled (not force-controlled) swaging die mechanism. SGL/SGS uses exactly the same swaging mechanism as the automatic feed models (SGA/SGB). Durability proven in high production at many of the world’s leading catheter makers.
Each swaging die provides one durably precise final swaged band diameter. Dies changeover takes only 2 minutes, with no shimming, adjustment, or calibration required. Knowledge Base: Swaging Basics
The SGL and SGS models are manually fed by the operator. They are a low-cost alternative to the more automated models.
