Catheter Hole Drilling

Precision drilling of micro holes in catheters including balloon and multi-lumen tubes with diameters as small as 2 microns.

Potomac Photonics has developed precision holes drilling technology for catheter applications.  With an emphasis on cleanliness and positional accuracy, our technology is suited for prototyping and production applications.  

We have the capability to drill micro holes in almost any material including: 
  • Polyimide, 
  • Nylon 
  • Polystyrene 
  • Teflon
  • Pebax
  • Mylar
  • LDPE
  • Silicone
  • and more…

Any type of hole pattern around the tube can be achieved for applications such as drug delivery, drainage and more.  After the holes are drilled, the catheter can be cut to length utilizing the same system.

Potomac Photonics is ISO 13485 certified and our quality team will work closely with you to devise an inspection, cleaning and packaging plan.
