Silicone Tube Measurement

Freudenberg Medical, Kaiserslautern, Germany, has developed a new technology to continuously measure the inner geometry of silicone tubes. The Helix iMC™, which stands for inner measurement and control, significantly increases product quality for high-precision applications, such as pacemaker lead insulation, and cuts down on material usage and process time. The technology specifically is designed for medical silicone extrusion. It uses sensor technology to continuously measure the inner geometry of extruded products such as single- or multi-lumen IDs, wall thickness, or concentricity as an inline process.
