Working with a European partner with experience and expertise in designing and producing extrusion lines for medical tubing, Labtech has announced it is now supplying the market with fully professional medical tubing lines.
The Labtech Scientific medical tubing lines, built under license and incorporating the latest technology, can be supplied in many configurations and using many extruder sizes depending on diameter of tubing and required output. Where tolerances are critical, the extruders can be equipped with a gear pump, which will ensure a very precise and constant resin flow to the die.
Downstream, the lines have a cooling and calibration tank in different sizes, with vacuum available, plus a haul-off and cutting unit designed for cutting soft and semi-rigid tubing for typical medical applications. The haul-off unit has a touch screen to set speed and cutting lengths and is also equipped with a dimension controller and recorder which is connected in closed loop to the extruder.
After the cutting station the tube lengths are collected on an outfeed and stacking conveyor, which enables tubes to be stored and packaged in predefined batches.
