Maillefer SA, based in Ecublens, Switzerland, announced new features for its PML extrusion lines for making medical intravenous tube.

An IV tube with a smooth and glossy surface may look appealing, but Maillefer officials said it has undesirable surface tackiness, which is accentuated when the tubing is conditioned on coils. As a result, the winding and unwinding operations are slowed.

Maillefer has added features that result in a tube surface with a lower adherence. Three conditioning possibilities are available: a full-length coil, a multiple-length coil and individual cut lengths.

The PML 032 line can run at 300 meters per minute, much faster than traditional equipment. It also operates at optimum speeds, even during coil transfers.
