Aran Biomedical offers both continuous reel-to-reel braiding and over mandrel braiding. In addition to braiding of multifilament and monofilament polymeric yarns, Aran Biomedical also offers nitinol braiding, specifically for the development of implantable devices and delivery systems. Devices can be stand-alone components or attached to the distal end of catheters for short term implantation.
Braided Nitinol Structures include:
Aran’s advanced braiding technology offers complete versatility from 3 carrier to 96 carrier ends, with independent placement and control for each individual carrier. This system enables highly accurate, repeatable structures and advanced braid configurations such as bi-furcations, seamless transitions from solid to tubular to flat, atraumatic ends, coils and overbraids. Devices can be heat set and shape formed to preferred dimensions, with the option for further downstream processing, such as coating, if needed, to enable particular functionality.
