Phillips Scientific has the capability of manufacturing ePTFE suture thread as well as tipping and attaching the thread to eyeless needles.
The Nitinol wire stent (below) was fabricated for encapsulation with ePTFE (above). The superelastic properties of Nitinol allow the tube to be collapsed into a small diameter guide tube.
ePTFE tube with PTFE backbone We have recently begun testing the effectiveness of laser cut PTFE encapsulated inside our own thin walled tubing. More information. Laser Textured ePTFE Using proprietary laser machining methods we are now able to texture the surface of ePTFE sheeting and membrane. More information. ePTFE Knit and braided Tubing ePTFE threads and yarns of various denier can […]
We are now experimenting with our new fiber-optic laser cutting capabilities, and attempting to create as clean of cuts as possible, to be potentially be encapsulated in a tube, at a later date. All parts we design can be scaled up or down to fit many different applications. For more information about our laser cut parts, or interest in incorporating […]
We now have the capabilities to laser cut a variety of metals. Using this ability, we have begun experimenting with different degrees of encapsulation of our custom laser cut parts. Our most recent example, a thin wall, non-kink, ePTFE guide channel with an encapsulated titanium spine
