Our full set-up includes a work table, as mentioned, the machine model requested, appropriate pull tester, and needle trays specific to the requested model.
Basic operation of a suture attaching machine is done by placing the needle between the attaching dies within the machine. The suture is then inserted into the drilled end of the needle. The operator then presses on the foot pedal which results in the needle being crimped to the suture. There are many factors that affect the yield, but the typical operator can average 200-400 attachments per hour.
