Surgical Suture Crimping

High flexibility suture crimping suture crimping solution

The IMA AUTOMATION range of SCM has been specifically designed for the automated assembly and crimping of multivariant surgical sutures.

A wide range of needles and threads can be handled and a fast product changeover time provides the flexibility of producing large or small batches.

Well established on the market and with its proven capabilities since its introduction, each suture is subjected to a pull test to guarantee a constant high quality thread needle combination . The finished and tested product is then unloaded into stainless steel receptacles for easy handling.

Advantages of automated suture production

The SCM continuously produces a stable quality of sutures from start to finish and reliably guarantees a cost effective production in multishifts of up to 24/7. During the machine operation, the needles can be loaded in bulk and the finished product unloaded without interruption. A machine standstill is required only to change the thread spool or the product variant.

Despite the high degree of automation, the machines are very flexible and suitable for almost all common surgical sutures. This core advantage of the SCM leads to a minimum downtime and a maximum efficiency in production.
