Our products

Product category: Product design and development

Robust Design - Developed to save time & cost.

More than 50 years of experience in design and development of high tech solutions
for the Pharma and Medtech industry has given us broad understanding
when it comes to medical technology applications. This enables us to create
effective solutions that meet both your technical and commercial requirements.
We offer a well-established project structure and clear project management, with engineers
who have comprehensive experience of working within a customers network and
delivering results. Working in close collaboration with us ensures that you will have the
resources, competence and tools needed for effective development.
As one of the leading injection moulding specialists, with extensive knowledge throughout
the whole value chain – including decoration and assembly – we can provide support
for practically all stages of the development process.
Our cornerstones of the development phase include Design for Manufacturing (DFM)
and Design for Assembly (DFA), Proof of Principle, computer analysis and simulations,
prototyping and design of mould and assembly concepts. And of course, quality
assurance and risk mitigation are always present in all steps of the process, resulting in
robust, validated manufacturing.

Product category: Balloons, elastomeric ballons, angioplasty

Compliant Non-Latex Balloons

Nolato Medical is a world-leading manufacturer of compliant balloons, now expanding the product offering to include non-latex balloons for use in catheter solutions.

The balloon is highly transparent and exhibits excellent material properties such as high elasticity, recovery and a high degree of compliancy. The bonding ability of the material is excellent and various welding techniques, such as heat welding, laser welding and ultra-sonic welding, can be used. Hence, time-consuming and demanding gluing processes are avoided.
Nolato has developed a proprietary manufacturing methodology yielding extremely thin-walled balloons in very soft materials as low as 10 Shore A. The validated manufacturing process yields exceptionally consistent dimensions required for critical medical balloon applications.
Additionally, the low pop-up pressure for this range of balloons guarantees perfectly symmetrical balloon inflation, easily controlled by physicians.

Raw material characteristics:
Biocompatible materials
Non-latex, non-animal derived materials
Hardness as low as 10 Sh A
Elongation 600-800 %
Balloon characteristics
ID 1.0 – 10.0 mm (0.04 – 0.40’’)
Thin wall capability 0.15 mm (0.006’’)
Extremely low pop-up pressure

Material Selection
We can develop a balloon engineered to fit your requirements with a wide range of custom selected materials.

World leading manufacturer of catheter balloons

Nolato’s catheter balloons have superior material properties in purity, symmetry and resilience, which is crucial for specific medical device applications.

A validated process and an excellent compound are keys to manufacturing catheter balloons efficiently with high quality. The material is considered to be very appropriate for therapeutic and diagnostic catheter applications.
For customer product development, Nolato Medical offers short lead times for balloon samples. Nolato also offers customers a dedicated project team assisting in balloon design input for their projects.
Nolato´s catheter balloons are used worldwide. The majority of the customers have subsequently shut down their own dipping operations and outsourced the balloon manufacturing to the experts. Accordingly, Nolato has extensive experience in outsourcing projects

Product category: Assembly techniques

Assembly solutions

Nolato’s expertise and experience in assembly solutions, means we can always offer the right degree of automation: manual, semi-automated or fully automated high-speed assembly.

Depending on the production volume, product design, quality requirements and geographic location, we choose the adequate assembly method.

To meet the strict quality requirements associated with medical production, we are able to offer validated assembly in clean-rooms that meet the requirements of GAMP (Good Automated Manufacturing Practice) and FDA 21 CFR Part 11.

Nolato offers an array of joining & assembly technologies including ultrasonic & vibration welding, heat staking, gluing and mechanical press-fit to name just a few. These technologies are used at all assembly levels, from manual to HSAM.

In HSAM (High Speed Assembly) applications, we offer for instance Cam-driven, indexed, systems. This is a technology for assembling parts with very high accuracy in applications where long service life is critical. The cam drive secures a perfect synchronization between the working units. We also offer Continuous Motion assembly, in which multiple processes occur without interruption for every cycle, effectively overlapping. With a capacity up to 1 200 pcs per minute, it is well suited for very high volume production.

As a Complete Solution Provider we also decorate, pack and label the assembled systems. Of course we provide customer-unique packaging as well as customer specific logistic solutions.
