QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of diameter tolerances can Poba Medical achieve?

For diameter tolerances we try to hold +/-5% of balloon diameter              
Ex. 5mm balloon 5x.05=.25mm so the spec would be 5mm+/-.25mm

Can you describe some your generic balloon length capabilities?

For length we also try to hold 5% however we are typically measuring this spec with a ruler. So the caveat to that is we do not try and hole less than +/-1mm or depending on how critical the length is to the customer +/-2mm.

Ex. A balloon with 150mm working length                              150x.05=7.5mm. We would specify +/-7.5mm

Ex. A balloon with a 20mm working length                              10x.05=.5mm. We would specify +/-1mm

What wall thicknesses can you hold?

It sounds a lot but we can hold +/-30%. However because the walls are so thin it ends up being an incredibly small tolerance

Ex. A balloon with a DWT .001”                              .001*.3=.0003”

Ex. A balloon with a DWT of .004                              .004*.3=.0012”

How do your wall thicknesses vary?

The wall thickness is approximately 5xDWT. It is so variable per project just based of DWT, size and geometry that it is hard to put out a generic value.
         
Ex. Balloon has a DWT .002,
Proximal ID = 070 and a
Distal ID.= 050
Proximal OD = .070+.002*5=.080                          
Distal OD = .050+.002*5=.060
