Braiding Capabilities

We have gone to considerable effort to install the latest in braiding technology to accommodate the design needs of the next generation of medical device products. From modern machinery equipped with the latest in tension control, to fully PLC driven braiding software allowing for dynamic braid design, to contact surface engineered to safely handle the most delicate of biomaterials, we are leading the charge to bring braiding to the 21st century.

Types of Braiding Technology

To view our types of braiding technology, select and toggle between options from the menu below.

Low Density Braiding

  • Carrier counts ranging from 4 to 16
  • Fully electronic braiding equipment allowing variable density structures
  • Segment control permitting the design of products with functional regions
  • Tension controls capable of handling the finest performance fibers to large diameter surgical grade wires

3-Dimensional and Branch Braiding

  • Carrier counts ranging from 4 to 32
  • Ability to create true round tubular braided structures with multiple “furcations”. Examples include:
    • 24 end “Bifurcation”– 2, 12 end braids
    • 24 end “Trifurcation” — 3, 8 end braids
    • 32 end “Octofurcation” — 8, 4 end braids
  • Ability to integrate braided eyelets into the product without the need for post-process assembly
  • Variable pick density and braid design through an integrated HMI interface
  • Hollow lumen braid geometry allows for termination and splicing, creating highly novel device assemblies

High Density Braiding

  • Carrier counts ranging from 32 to 144
  • Fully electronic, variable density; differentiate up to 25 segments
  • Fine wire/yarn capability with quad roller draw tension control
  • Braid over straight and tapered mandrels to allow for complex geometries in high density braided structures
  • Ability to process either discrete or continuous products
  • Warp axial capability on all machines
