Catheter Tip Forming System for precision applications.
Perfect Catheter Tip forming system for tipping urinary catheters using 4 dies at a time.
The system uses an air servo cylinder which allows the operator to load materials onto the mandrel and place it onto the shuttle.
Catheter Tip Forming takes a quantum leap forward with ONEX RF's computerized process control.
Greater Process Control: The ONEX RF's catheter tipping systems overcome common problems and mistakes, no more tidious adjustements required during each changeover. Just load process parameters and ready to start production.
Simple HMI Operation: A 8" PC based touch screen HMI to control the system operations and set system parameters.
Fast Changeover: We take pride by offering a unique design that does not require renches to perform basic setup or changeover. It takes less then 3 minutes to do a changeover, without the use of wrenches, to setup a new die and be ready to produce perfectly formed catheters.
Cut down Validation Time: We have developed unique process control software that allow you to validate a new product 10 times faster.
All important adjustments are recorded electronically to eliminate guesswork during setup.
Online Support: ONEX RF's PC based controls allow for fast access to online support and process setup.

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.
Some of the unique features our systems offer:
Heat Zone Adjustment
Quick & Easy Die Cassette Changeover
Easy Change Tube Clamps
Validation ready PC based interface
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.
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.
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.
Make significantly more parts per hour, decrease down time, enjoy a relatively maintenance free system.
