Confluent Medical Technologies (Scottsdale, Arizona) has expanded its polymer tubing capabilities by opening a new High Precision Polymer Tubing center of excellence.
The Chattanooga, Tennessee facility opened in August. Its capabilities include PTFE liners with optional tie layers, polyimide tubing, multi-layer composite tubing (braided and non-braided), and coated wire. Lead times at the facility are four weeks or less, depending on quantity and construction.
“Combine this new site’s capabilities with our complex catheter offerings out of our Austin, Texas site, and you have a powerful partner in Confluent Medical to assist with your catheter shaft needs,” Confluent CEO Dean Schauer said in a news release.
The addition of filmcast technology enables Confluent to strengthen its vertically integrated supply chain by offering thin-walled, tightly tolerance engineered tubing. The Chattanooga site has a technical team with over 175 years of combined experience in medical device manufacturing and can partner with OEMs to provide customized tubing.
