Visit Us at MD&M West to See Why Sono-Tek is the Industry’s Leader in Ultrasonic Stent Coating Technology

Visit Sono-Tek at the upcoming MD&M West trade show in Anaheim, CA, from February 12-14, 2013 in booth #1440.

We will be demonstrating our NEW! MediCoat DES3000 benchtop stent coating system, the ideal turnkey solution for the development of coating processes for arterial metal and bioabsorbable drug eluting stents with anti-restinosis polymers and other coatings. This upgraded system is suitable for lab/R&D, and meets many production requirements as well. All of the precision performance and reliability of Sono-Tek’s MediCoat DES1000 is combined with upgrades and enhanced capabilities in this new system, featuring:

  • Sono-Tek’s latest patented 180 kHz MicroMist ultrasonic nozzle for smaller droplet sizes down to ~13┬Ám
  • Enhanced nozzle positioning and high precision alignment fixture providing excellent repeatability from stent to stent and from one machine to another
  • Precision Generator for finer control of atomization process
  • Data logging capability and multi-level security settings are now included in our recipe building storage software

All in the controlled, sealed environment of our benchtop glove box with integrated programmable stent rotation and translation. An alternate enclosure system (MediCoat DES4000) is available for coating processes that don’t require an exhausted glove box environment.

Sono-Tek is world renowned for supplying precision coating technology to the medical industry for decades, with a full line of proven stent coating solutions for R&D and production volume manufacturing of arterial and peripheral stents, as well as balloon catheters. Our MediCoat systems set the standard for superior quality stent coatings. We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality medical coating systems available on the market for over two decades. We’ve helped dozens of medical device manufacturers improve their quality and throughput, including validation documentation support.
