HYPOTUBING

Go ahead, throw the thinnest wall you have at us.

The grinding of tubing is a core strength, and we should be grinding yours. A critical supplier for the grinding of thin-walled tubes on projects in  TAVR (valve delivery cylinders), Interventional Neurovascular (stroke intervention, and aneurysm coiling), Structural Heart and Ophthalmologic (stenting for glaucoma intervention), Meron Medical has the experience to get you what you need. Throw your meanest and ugliest tubing applications at us - configuration, length (long or short), tight tolerances, thin walls, SST or NiTi – we will find a way to make it work.

We can supply the tubing, or we can grind yours.

Don't be shy, ask about our capabilities — we can help.

  • Implant delivery systems
  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Stent production
  • Vascular imaging

Capabilities

  • All materials – mostly SST and NiTi
  • Diameters - .006” to 1” (or greater)
  • Tight tolerances – holding .0001” (2.5um) on diameters
  • Short parts or long lengths
  • Long length (1800mm), small diameter (<.015”)  “wire-like” tubes. Grind OD like a guidewire holding steps, angles, tapers - generally Neurovascular applications
  • Short length (30mm), larger diameter (.200-.250”)- grind OD and ID to achieve extremely thin and consistent wall thickness - generally TAVR applications
  • Large tubes – short length (50mm) and large diameters (~.500”).OD and ID grinding to achieve  high diameter-to-wall thickness ratio. 100:1 or greater is common (.500” OD with .005” wall thickness) - generally Structural Heart applications
  • Small diameter (<.030”) and shorter length (<80mm). Grind OD features  such as steps, tapers or radii to achieve fit into a device, or functionality - generally Ophthalmologic  applications
  • Expert in working with thin wall tubes
  • Very thin wall is achievable
  • Ratio of 50:1 (diam:wall) is common (for example -  a tube with a .100” diameter and a .002” wall thickness)
  • Ratios of 100:1 possible in shorter lengths where we can grind the ID
  • Intricate features – steps, tapers (OD and ID), radii, grooves, etc…

DEVICE COMPONENTS - Short Term

Go ahead... tell us it can’t be done.

Possibly our greatest strength is applying decades of experience to produce difficult to manufacture device components of all kinds. Components for surgically invasive devices intended for short-term use (less than 30 days) are a staple of Meron Medical’s core business. These components range from corewires and hypotubes (listed above) – to extremely complex micro-sized components for applications in ophthalmology,  endoscopy, hemolytic testing and percutaneous cardiovascular intervention. Almost limitless in possible variations for part configuration and diversity of the specialty of focus.

  • Corewires
  • Delivery systems
  • Miniature high speed impeller shafts
  • Torsion Wires
  • Electrodes
  • R&D
  • Production

Capabilities

  • Diverse base of machine tools affords  opportunity to achieve complex configurations

DEVICE COMPONENTS - Long Term

We're a partner you can trust!

Often linked to Meron Medical’s ability to work effectively with polymers and non-metals,  surgically invasive devices intended for long-term use (greater than 30 days) have required some of our most inventive solutions. Engineering grinding processes for multi-lumen lead bodies, micro-sized components for Mitral Valve Clipping, or lead connectors for CRM devices have helped us to push limits and open doors to new solutions for the entire industry.

Don’t accept that it can’t be done... until you have spoken to us!
