Flexible Stent Crimping Platform - CR-240-FSCP


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.


  • Flexible Process Interface
  • Servo controlled stent crimping head with Zero Gap
  • 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
  • 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
