Medical catheters play a critical role in modern healthcare, but traditional manufacturing methods have limitations. CathPrint, a Stockholm-based company, is revolutionizing the production of medical catheters by offering a novel and cost-effective method of producing advanced catheters using Flexible Printed Circuit Board (FPCB) technology.
Revolutionizing Catheter Production
CathPrint is an experienced designer and producer of medical catheters that specializes in FPCB technology. The company’s revolutionary concept involves producing catheters directly from flexible printed wire boards, which allows for the miniaturization of catheters with printed conductors.
The FPCB technology allows for the production of long, thin, and narrow double-sided boards that have conductor lines on one side and electrodes on the other. Sensors can also be mounted on the board, and the board is rolled into a tube by pulling the stripe through a nozzle and simultaneously filling it with glue. This means that instead of doing all electrical connections manually, CathPrint technology allows it to be made in an automated way.
The FPCB technology has two major advantages:
- It allows for the miniaturization of catheters with printed conductors, which enables the delivery of catheters of superior flexibility with minimal invasiveness. This is beneficial for both practitioners and patients.
- It makes it possible to mass-produce these catheters efficiently at a low cost. Many catheters today are manufactured manually, but CathPrint technology presents the potential of automated production. CathPrint technology enables mass production of catheters on a cost-efficient basis while ensuring quality deliverance.
Cost-Effective and Scalable
One of the key advantages of CathPrint technology is that it is cost-effective and scalable. The FPCB technology allows for faster production than conventional methods, leading to a very cost-efficient outcome. The technology also enables the production of high-performance catheters of various diameters, even as thin as 0.35mm.
CathPrint technology also allows for the integration of multiple sensors and other electronics into the catheter, which enables the development of more advanced and sophisticated catheters that can provide better patient care.
CathPrint offers its technology to companies who wish to improve their production of present catheters or develop new, more advanced catheters using the potential of this new technology. CathPrint provides technology licenses, production equipment, and technical support.
The company also collaborates with OEM partners who produce the catheters using the FPCB technology. The OEM production is done by CathPrint’s production partner, ensuring that the catheters are produced efficiently and cost-effectively.
