ASG Medical Systems Announces New Automated Leak-Testing and Pad-Printing System
West Palm Beach, FL - ASG Medical Systems is pleased to announce the introduction of the ALPS Automated Leak-Test and Pad-Print System for catheters, combining two complex catheter manufacturing processes with ASG's feeding, handling and integration technology to create a fully automated system.
ALPS uses proven pad print technology from Deco-Tech, and leak test technology from Zaxis, along with automation and integration from ASG Medical Systems to create a robust, bin to bin automated system for catheter leak testing and pad printing.
The benefits of ASG automation typically include a 100% increase in daily output for the leak test and pad print systems, improved quality and test integrity due to precise product handling, and of course, dramatic labor savings of two people per shift available to focus on other valuable tasks.
At ASG, we constantly develop automated manufacturing machines to improve the output quality and efficiency of catheter and guidewire manufacturing. If you have a catheter manufacturing process you'd like to automate, or if you have an automated process that you want to make more efficient, please contact us at ASG. Our team is ready to serve you.
