Fluid transfer tubes


Automated production of fluid transfer tubes

Like many other medical products, fluid transfer tubing can be produced automatically with Metzner machines. The Metzner KL-BV was specially developed for processing pressure-sensitive tubing. 

Due to the blades starting at 0.1 mm | 0.004″ thickness, the cuts are precise, while the pressure acts almost exclusively on the cut surface. Deformation of the fluid transfer hoses is reduced to an absolute minimum, as the blade does not press down from above but moves into the hose at an angle. The cutting angle can also be precisely adjusted to the diameter of the hoses. The pressure of the feed belts can also be precisely adjusted. This allows you to react easily to different batches and hose types. In order to achieve the greatest possible length accuracy, it is also possible to regulate the feed speed. This is particularly advantageous for short tubes up to approx. 30 mm | 1 3/16” in length. The machine can make 330 cuts per minute in fluid transfer hoses with a diameter of up to 18 mm | 45/64“. Thanks to all these factors, you can easily create recipes for your products so that you can always deliver consistent quality.

Of course, the KL-BV is also available in stainless steel. Metzner also offers you the option of customizing machines or developing them for your needs. Not only solutions for shortening, punching, cutting and printing are possible. Metzner has already developed machines that glue automatically. Of course, it is also possible to integrate components or machines from other manufacturers. We are pleased to help you.
