Blockwise’s innovative self-expanding stent loaders will help you process even the most difficult stents. Our stent loaders vary from highly automated machines to simple yet powerful manual mechanisms. A stent loading machine generally consists of a compression mechanism to reduce the diameter of the stent, and a gripper for holding the delivery catheter. It may also have a pushrod system, or a cooling system for keeping the compressed nitinol stent from expanding.
