3DT's TubeDyne Creates Powerful Adhesion of Tubing to Housings for Medical Instruments

Germantown, WI – Advances in minimally invasive surgery get a boost from 3DT’s surface treatment system, TubeDyne Treating System. This system is designed to treat medical tube ends for a permanent bond to surgical instruments, housings or other tubing including catheters. TubeDyne harnesses arc plasma which alters the surface energy on pebax and polyethylene tubing creating a strong bond with adhesives, coatings, and ink. 3DT’s TubeDyne uniformly and gently treats tubing within its self-contained, compact, tabletop unit.

TubeDyne is designed for the outside treatment of tube ends. Any tubing up to 0.375" in diameter, with or without metal inserts, can be placed in the holding fixture and receive uniform treatment at a length of approximately 2.00". The unit includes an integrated generator, transformer, electrode assembly, holding fixture and ozone filter. TubeDyne is PLC-controlled and features an operator console with a human machine interface (HMI), including: a programmable, monochrome touch screen with status menu, run time log, service hour log and alarm/trouble-shooting screen. It is operator safe, friendly, and ergonomically designed. TubeDyne offers consistent, uniform, 360 degree treatment resulting in powerful bonding of medical tubing.
