Machine Solutions ups the ante for stent loading equipment

The SE1900S self-expanding stent loading equipment employs dual direct drive activation, automatic compliance adjustment, automated force calibration, multiple stage control, and self-aligning catheter clamps. The equipment was designed by Machine Solutions Inc. The addition of patent-pending CrimpPulse technology reduces friction during loading making it possible for manufactures to process longer length, and difficult to load stents.

The SE1900S is PLC controlled with an industrial PC touch screen user interface. The PC HMI allows for networking with local and server-based data management and integration with other systems. These capabilities suit the SE1900S for high-volume manufacturers looking for advanced process control and integration with current MES systems.

Other features of the SE1900S include repeatable loading of 150-mm+ stents; full-cycle data acquisition; and a crimp head chilling configuration that’s capable of operating at -40°C.
