A device designed to remove ovality from medical grade PVC tubing before entering an automated manufacturing process.

Terumo BCT required the removal of ovality from blood tubing within a fully-automated manufacturing process. Unacceptable tubing ovality has prevented increased production rates, and rendered a large portion of the tubing unusable. Our objective was to design and fabricate a high-speed manufacturing device that reforms the tubing through heat and mechanical manipulation before entering automation.
