SimShaft™ for Optimal Catheter Shaft Designs
Nordson MEDICAL’s SimShaft design simulation service gives you the information you need to make informed design decisions, at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional prototype iterations.
Our experts perform a detailed design analysis using specialized, validated software to simulate catheter shaft performance characteristics and determine the optimal design—earlier in the design process.
3 Steps to Optimal Shaft Designs
Step 1: Collaborate
Working closely with your team, Nordson MEDICAL engineers input your current and desired shaft design attributes or performance characteristics, such as:
Outer jacket material
Type of reinforcement (braid or coil)
Number and direction of wires
Reinforcement pick count or pitch
Step 2: Simulate
Using proprietary software, the Nordson MEDICAL team simulates iterations on various parameters to achieve your desired attributes or performance characteristics.
Step 3: Analyze and Recommend
Experienced Nordson MEDICAL design engineers analyze and interpret the results of the software and provide a report with recommended shaft designs.
