    Stent Inspection Mandrels made from Sapphire

    This application, for ESI/Visicon Inspection Systems and other similar equipment, is optimized for maximum safe production leading to higher stent inspection throughput.

    Engineered to reflect optimum light, this process allows for easier defect detection. It’s also a safer inspection. The mandrels are smoother to prevent unintended damage to stents resulting in less downtime due to damage.

    This Stent Inspection process helps MCS clients meet strict output needs while creating a superior product.

    Materials Matter

    State of the art materials that fit your application

    Nitinol- Ideal for smaller mandrels prone to kinking, Nitinol combines superior strength and elasticity. Our Nitinol “Super Mandrels” last up to 10 times longer than Spring Temper Mandrels.

    Hollow Tube - For larger mandrels consider hollow tubes for their ultra smooth finish and superior thermal properties. These hypo tubes will reduce cooling times and maximize your production capacity. Also,
    plugs can be welded on for clamping purposes.

    Tool Steels -Tool steels are utilized for superior strength, hardness, and resistance to abrasion and deformation. Offered at up to 60 Rockwell hardness, these can with stand razor blade cuts directly on surface.
