New in Medical IV Tube


We're actively developing our solutions for medical since announcing features like pre-cut and short lengths one year ago. Now, we've concentrated on upping line speeds without sacrificing quality. There are improvements to extrusion flow thanks to screw design and extrusion head; plus optimized cooling, from the extrusion head to leaving the water bath. Gains in factory-wide performance and product optimization bring results across all manufacturing steps, especially for assembly located downstream.

  • Optimized cooling for faster line speeds
  • Pre-cut tube on coils
  • Short lengths up to 4 meters
  • Short lengths batch sizing
  • Automatic or manually adjustable cut frequency
  • Non-stick surface treatment.
