AccuPath® offers high-precision hypotube solution for premium medical devices

High-precision hypotubes play a crucial role in minimally invasive interventional surgeries. Used in combination with instruments like balloon catheters or stents, this hypotube and fittings aid physicians in successfully propelling, tracking, and rotating instruments along narrow and tortuous anatomical pathways, facilitating successful minimally invasive interventions.

AccuPath® provides reliable technical support to medical device manufacturers. High-precision hypotubes can be used in the following medical devices:
● Bullet and self-expanding scaffold delivery systems -PTCA and PTA;
● Specialized catheterization - CTO, arthroplasty, and thrombectomy;
● Embolization protection and filtration apparatus;
● Endovascular imaging equipment;
● Neurovascular coil delivery - rod diameter < 1F;
● Advanced endoscopic steering devices.

AccuPath® manufactures high-precision hypotubes using top-quality materials including 304, 304L, and nickel-titanium. Parameters include 0.3 to 1.20 mm outer diameter, 0.05 to 0.18 mm wall thickness, and ±0.005 mm dimension tolerance. The coating, available in black, blue, green, purple, and yellow, is 8-20 μm thick on both walls. The polymer sleeve has a double wall thickness of 100 μm or more.

Product Advantages
Using highly automated precision laser processing technology, AccuPath® ensures superior performance and production capacity of high-precision hypotubes, assisting customers in developing and manufacturing highly engineered catheter systems. Tests show that AccuPath® hypotube surface coatings are more uniform under a 40x microscope. The 2kg pressure, 800 times horizontal reciprocating friction, results in less friction, providing a smoother experience. These properties make AccuPath® the preferred component for high-end medical devices.
