Medical Reinforced Tubing

Vention designs and manufactures high-performance coil- and braid-reinforced tubing

Building on our expertise in medical tubing, Vention has full capabilities to design and manufacture high-performance reinforced catheter tubing. Reinforced catheter tubing is ideal for medical device applications that require:

  • Strength
  • Stiffness
  • Torque
  • Kink resistance
  • Compression resistance

Experts in Medical Reinforced Tubing

Starting with your clinical requirements, our engineers can work with you to design and manufacture high-performance medical reinforced tubing with the performance characteristics you need. Our capabilities include:

  • Braid-reinforced microtubing
  • Reel-to-reel braid-reinforced tubing
  • High-pressure braided tubing
  • Complex coil- and braid-reinforced shafts
Our braid-reinforced microtubing is fabricated using the film-coat process developed for polyimide tubing

Braid-Reinforced Microtubing

Our braid-reinforced microtubing is fabricated using the film-coat process developed for polyimide tubing.

  • 4–5 layers of different materials within a 0.003" wall thickness
  • Metallic and nonmetallic braid reinforcement (8–16 wires)

Reel-to-Reel Braid-Reinforced Catheter Tubing

We offer continuous reel-to-reel braiding, which allows us to produce millions of feet of braid-reinforced catheter tubing each year.

  • Cost effective
  • Consistent and reliable
  • Variable pitch in continuous lengths also available
High-pressure braided tubing

High-Pressure Braided Tubing (HPBT)

Our high-pressure braid-reinforced tubing can be manufactured to precise tolerances at high or low volumes.

  • Combines high strength and flexibility
  • Withstands up to 1,200 psi working pressure
  • Custom designs also available
Braid-reinforced shafts are manufactured to your specifications

Complex Coil- and Braid-Reinforced Shafts

Our complex coil- and braid-reinforced shafts are designed and manufactured to your specifications. We offer a wide range of dimensions and materials, including polyimide. Contact us to discuss your design intent and we’ll work with you to design a device with the performance characteristics you need. Our capabilities include:

  • Variable-pitch braid-reinforced shafts
  • Coil-reinforced shafts
  • 16-, 32-, and 48-carrier braiders
  • Fiber/nonmetallic braiding
  • Custom tipping
  • Custom hole punching & drilling
  • Shaping
