Medical Device Finishing

Putnam Plastics excels in the forming and finishing of catheter tubing 

Putnam Plastics offers a wide variety of value fabrication capabilities. Our finishing technologies will bring your extruded medical tubing one step closer to a turnkey solution for final assembly into your medical device. Our unparalleled expertise includes access openings, precision catheter ends, joining, and printing of extruded tubes for intravascular and natural orifice procedures.

From simple processes, such as precision cutting to length, to complex operations that include laser bonding and 360-degree printing on tubes, Putnam offers state-of-the-art services for customers seeking finished catheter tube components.

Putnam has the added value of an in-house finishing facility for custom medical devices

Putnam offers two exceptional benefits to medical device companies. First, processes specially designed for catheter components, such as welding, overmolding and printing, are all in one manufacturing space.
