, Stent Crimping Journey


 The CR-240-FSCP Flexible Stent Crimping Platform is developed for the crimping and transfer on or into the delivery system. Both balloon expandable and self- expandable stents up to 220 mm length can be handled. 

Key Features

  • Flexible Process Interface 
  • Servo controlled stent crimping head with Zero Gap technology 
  • Quick exchangeable crimping head 
  • 2 platforms for customized parts on holding and pushing stents and mandrels 
  • The CR-240-FSCP is built with a very high-quality benchmark resulting in a stable and robust design with minimal cost of ownership. 
  • The CR-240-FSCP stent crimper can be easily calibrated using the one-point automatic diameter calibration function built into the system. Calibration in seconds. 
  • • Large 19” full color touch screen user interface for easy overview of the machine behavior and managing of the FPI
