OFFERING CATHETER MANUFACTURERS IMPROVED PROFITABILITY

A New Catheter Paradigm

Introducing CathPrint™, a catheter design and manufacturing technology that will rationalize existing catheters and realize challenging product concepts into marketable products. CathPrint™ is enabling significant cost savings, improved performance and increased profitability for advanced catheter manufacturers.


CathPrint works closely with customers to design and produce catheters and has established small-scale production for customers at its premises. CathPrint is based in Stockholm, Sweden, and serves a variety of customers.

WHAT WE DO

Driven by innovation, CathPrint AB brings to the medical industry a new and effective method of catheter production, substantially reducing manpower efforts and costs. Working with various companies in the catheter industry, CathPrint has introduced novel solutions to the production of catheters with various requirements.

We are utilizing the proven technology of flexible printed circuit boards (FPCBs), which are the basis for CathPrint’s new innovative process. This enables a semi-automatic operation process for attaching wires, electrodes and contacts, replacing today’s small-scale, handmade manufacturing.

CathPrint’s technology is patent pending.
