Medical Braiding Systems
Vertical Fine Wire Braider - K80 Series
There braiders are workhorses for the medical industry. They are used in the production of catheters, tubes and a variety of invasive and non-invasive products which need designed flexibility, stiffness, kinkability, torque and radial strength.
Steeger braiders are available with 3, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 32, 36, 48... up to 200 carriers in increments of four. Our carrier design, which unrolls wire from a horizontally placed bobbin enables braiding the most tension sensitive materials without coiling or twisting.
The carrier will handle:
- Stainless Steel, NiTi, Titanium, Copper
- Round Wire 0.0005 to 0.005
- Flat Wire 0.0007 to 0.005 (0.003) and 0.0005 to 0.003 (0.005)
Multi Filament Yarns
Kevlar, Vectra, Spectra denier - Monofils, Optical Fibers in the 0.002 - 0.005 range single end of copper wire 0.003, multiple ends of 0.001
For the electrical conductor industry, the
K80-16 Fine Wire Braider handles wires up
to 50 guage (AWG) - (5 ends per bobbin) for production of coax cable, antenna cables, microprocessor cable etc.
