R & D Engineering has been my “go to” integrator for over 10 years across 4 different companies. We have purchased custom and off-the-shelf machines to do many catheter-related processes, including vertical and horizontal lamination, balloon and catheter bonding, balloon blowing, stent crimping, tube slitting and flaring, and many other custom processes.R & D has always separated themselves from the competition because of their strong ability to understand the needs of catheter development and the Manufacturing Engineer. R & D can help the Engineer develop their user requirements from scratch. This saves weeks or months in the development cycle. In the last 10 years, I do not remember one quality issue with a machine or tool. I highly recommend R & D to all other industry associates.
