 Consistency in RF Tipping Process

Eliminate Variations: Overcome process issues in Rf tipping process due to tedious adjustments of coil or hard stop position. The stated adjustments on the ONEX RF tipper use electronic feedback displayed on the HMI and can be saved in the recipe. 

Validation Time Slashed: Our catheter tipping machines use validated software that cuts down your Installation Qualification time.

Repeatable Process: Closed loop process control helps repeat every RF tipping process with the help of RF power and tipping mold temperature feedback.

The RF Tip Forming Systems and Catheter Tipping Machines are exclusively designed by ONEX RF. Our Tip Forming Systems are very versatile and come with quick changeover tooling to allow setup time in less than 3 minutes. We have also designed certain features that allow heat zone adjustment on the die without the need playing with the coil thus increasing the consistency and repeat ability of system performance after each setup.

RF Tip Forming Systems and Catheter Tipping Machines

Some of the unique features our systems offer:

Heat Zone Adjustment

  • The Coil is adjusted by a fine screw
  • Coil position is recorded in the system and can be validated

Quick & Easy Die Cassette Changeover 

  • Easy interchange of coils to match die sizes
  • Toolless die changeover in less than 30 seconds
  • Capable of running most catheter sizes and wide variety of types on the same system

Easy Change Tube Clamps

Validation ready PC based interface

  • Password protected recipes
  • RF Tunner for quick changeover of Die and Coil combinations

Capabilities:

  • Product evaluation, die design and fabrication
  • Automated Tip Forming system design
  • RF hole punch system design and fabrication
  • Complete Process Setup and Validation Assistance

Benefits:

Tipping Process Consistency

Precise mechanical adjust ability of dies within the coil's magnetic field helps define the most efficient heat zone and reduce heat transfer time, producing the most efficient heat cycle time.  The dial indicator sends a signal to the PLC to record the final die position for validation and process repeat ability for the future changeovers.

Up to 90% Reduced Setup Time

Now you can manufacture different size catheters on the same RF Tip Forming machine without major design changes. New die setup is performed without the use of any wrenches or hand tools in just a few minutes. Guaranteed setup in less than 5 minutes versus several hours of pursuit of original operating conditions. The fast setup time is achieved with the Patent Pending Die Cassette and Tube-Clamp sets, and process parameters are saved and can be easily set and recorded in the PLC during validation for future access and retrieval.

Tip Forming Process Control Software

The software has simplified the set up and changeover, allowing the selection of a catheter model number in a drop down menu to load validated process parameters in seconds. No guesswork or errors due to manual setup using a process work sheet. The interface allows the customer to put the minimum and maximum validated limits and password protect them from future unauthorized personnel, securing process parameters.

Catheter Tipping Results

Make significantly more parts per hour, decrease down time, enjoy a relatively maintenance free system.
