Our upstate New York medical precision extrusion, microbore, and assembly operation was acquired in December 2015 under Pexco LLC. This facility manufactures and supplies advanced extrusion technology to the medical community. 

 

The technologies and capabilities at our Glens Falls facility include: 

  • Core Mandrel 
    • One of Glens Falls main capabilities is the manufacturing of acetal mandrel or solid rod core extrusions used as manufacturing aid for braid or coil reinforced catheter tubing. This product has a highly consistent diameter, roundness, and smooth surface for easy removal with low release force.
  • Single Lumen Extrusions 
    • OD’s up to .400”
    • ID’s as small as .0018”
    • Walls as thin as .002”
    • Tolerances as tight as ±0.0005”
    • Wire reinforced available
  • Multi-Lumen Extrusions 
    • Up to 10 lumens (typically 5 maximum)
    • Walls and webs as thin as .0025"
    • Wire reinforced available
  • Co-extrusion Tubing
    • Two Layers
    • Encapsulated radiopaque stripes
  • Balloon Tubing - 2FR to 14FR
    • Nylon, PET, Pebax, and TPU
    • Better control of some of the critical properties, e.g. elongation and tensile strength
    • +/-0.0005" tolerances both on OD and ID
    • Clear and smooth surface
    • Excellent concentricity with very uniform wall thickness
  • Bump Tubing
  • Parallel Tubing 
  • Angiographic Catheters
    • Assembly design- allows for easy curve setting – tapering and perfusion port forming when required
    • Standard French sizes- providing ease of use with a wide variety of sheath introducers
    • Encapsulated braid reinforcement - providing kink resistance and super torque 
    • Manufacturing process- providing reliability, smooth surface and ease of use with introducer
    • Functional lumen sizes and large lumens provide exceptional flow rate, ease of hand injection and shorter hospitalization time. 
    •  
  • Secondary Operations
    • Curving
    • Tipping
    • Hole Punching
    • Flaring
    • Surface Finishing 
    • RF Welding
    • Reflow

The material range of these products encompasses most of the medical plastics spectrum, including Nylon, PEBA, PET, Polycarbonate, PVC, PEEK, Polyolefins, Polyurethanes, and other compounded blends.
