SP & SD Machine Series Overview

The Automated Catheter Hole Making solutions are powerful and safe solutions to hole making needs of various shapes and sizes. Four models, ranging from one to four axes, allow for repeatable patterns of round, oval and other shaped holes. The automated catheter hole punching and automated medical tube drilling equipment utilize quick-change tooling that manages a broad range of material types and sizes while limiting production impact from change-overs.
Utilizing punches featuring SYNEO’s Hollow Core Sharpening Technology, these hole making systems provide superior hole quality and repeatability. SYNEO hole making solutions are capable of hole sizes as small as .005”, and offer capabilities such as quick-change tooling, multi-lumen location, and drilling holes between cross-sections of braided material.
