BLOCKWISE Model VS (G) for Alpha-Pleat™ Stations


BLOCKWISE Model VS (G) for Alpha-Pleat™ Stations View Large Image

The most accurate pleating geometry in the world; We recommend that you select this model unless you need to process balloons with diameters larger than 14 mm or lengths longer than 124 mm. Designed especially for PTCA-sized balloon wrapping, the patented Alpha-Pleat™ station has EDM-cut stainless steel dies that are self guided by extremely precise bearing balls, resulting in unparalleled consistency and geometric accuracy with virtually zero wear. The J-Crimp™ compression station relies on non-contacting dies with very small die-to-die gaps.

  • Full manual control over balloon wrapping process
  • Easy to Operate Controls
  • Temperature-controlled stainless steel dies
  • Minimal maintenance with consistent results
A low-cost, fully-manual, air actuated balloon wrapping machine for pleating and compressing catheter balloons.

This fully manual balloon wrapping machine contains all the necessary settings for complete optimization of the balloon wrapping process, without electronic control or computerized timing. Using a stopwatch to control the timing of pleating, compression, pressurization, and vacuum, the process engineer or the low-volume manufacturer can get the same results as on the recipe-driven VC machine.

Pleating and compression stations are both actuated by air cylinders. Air pressure regulation provides force control of balloon compression. Alternatively, compression can be diameter-controlled by means of a mechanical stop screw.

A complete machine includes a Model VS machine base, a pneumatically actuated pleating station, and a pneumatically actuated compression station. The pleating and compression stations are chosen based on the balloon diameter and length. Our engineers will help you choose the best pleating and compression stations for your application.
