We are proud to offer an extensive line of manufacturing services including:
We mold thousands of components ranging from stopcocks and manifolds to bone needle handles utilizing a wide range of materials such as polycarbonate, ABS, nylon, polypropylene, polyethylene, acrylics, etc.
An effective and stronger alternative to adhesive bonding, for example the further processing of tubing and wires to form a hub or handle around the tubing or wire
Our core competency for manufacturing catheters, tubing and guidewire packaging.
Catheter Hub Molding and tip forming
The customizable processes for insert molding the hub directly onto catheter tubing. We have expertise in tapering the tubing for the critical forming of the catheter tip.
We offer an industry leading “Match-ground” tip where the needle and stylet are uniquely matched one-to-one during grinding for a perfect needle point, as well as electrochemical grinding and notching for custom features specific to customer needs.
Cannula Depth Marking
As an alternative to laser etching, we offer chemical etching to create custom depth marks on a cannula.
Customized printing available in a variety of colors on a variety of components.
Argon is an expert in a variety of metal processes such as swaging, bending and flaring to shape tubing and wire to strengthen the hub bond, or to create a better funnel entry for accepting a device into the tubing inner diameter.
CNC Swiss Machining
Unique automated equipment specifically programmed to cut, drill, and turn steel to customize the inner diameter and outer diameter.
Electrochemical "burr free" Cutting
Creates a clean cut that does not distort the outer or inner diameter on stainless steel tubes and wires.
- Polymers in the SLIP-COAT, absorb aqueous liquids to make the surface slippery when wet. This feature makes it more lubricious than PTFE coatings.
- Since SLIP-COAT is heat cured, Argon has the unique ability to coat the inner lumens of catheters
- SLIP-COAT can be tailored to meet a manufacturer’s requirements for the level of lubricity and the length of time a device remains lubricious
