Blockwise Engineering supplies manufacturing and testing equipment for medical device manufacturers, especially makers of balloons, catheters and stents.

Blockwise's stent crimping machines are available with any of three proprietary types of radial compression mechanism: J-Crimp™ (metal dies) or Zero-G™ (plastic dies), and Twin-Cam (metal dies). Each provides performance not available elsewhere, and are available as part of various crimping machines for balloon expandable or self-expanding stents.

 

 

Blockwise's balloon wrapping (folding) equipment employs a proprietary precision pleating mechanism providing the most accurate balloon cavity available. The Model G wrapper is a highly productive, semi-automated tabletop machine suitable for production or R&D use.

 

The model SFA high-speed marker band swaging machine is built around a proprietary, flexure-based die that closes fully with every blow. By eliminating swaging frequency as a process setting, setup is simplified and swaged diameters are extremely consistent. High productivity is the result of the highest swaging frequency in the industry.

 

The Wire Fatigue Tester is a rotating beam-type fatigue tester for wires or small stents with optional body-temperature water bath. Many features to simplify setup and operation make this the easiest-to-use machine of its type.

One of these features is the Blockwise MicroChuck which holds tiny products in the center as the chuck closes, dramatically easing the process of inserting and centering small-diameter products. The MicroChuck also is sold separately.

 

The Simpluer™ and Tube Grabber line of quick fluid connectors are designed for quick and ergonomic connection of Luer fittings or small tubing for product processing or testing.

Our radial force testing equipment integrates our J-Crimp™ or Twin-Cam™ radial compression stations with standard tensile testing machines to provide the most cost-effective way to measure stent radial strength, hoop force, or radial force.
