Ulbrich announced today that it launched an easy-to-browse e-commerce solution for its Braid Wire Accelerator program.
North Haven, Connecticut-based Ulbrich said in a news release that the online store makes it easier for medical device manufacturers to source the braid wire materials they need, with just a few clicks providing an instantaneous view of what items Ulbrich Specialty Wire Products has in stock through the Standard Braid Wire Accelerator program.
Ulbrich’s program offers an array of alloys (in a range of tensile and winding tension configurations) to allow for the selection of the best braiding material for their equipment and application. The e-commerce platform allows customers to find the right material for their requirements, add it to their cart and check out before an Ulbrich wire specialist promptly contacts them to finalize their order.
The company also confirmed that its accelerator includes a rapid prototype solution for those who require modifications to meet their specifications, utilizing semi-finished materials. The program offers quick lead times and low minimum order quantities but is slightly longer than the Braid Wire Accelerator program due to the extra processing needed to meet customer-specific requirements, Ulbrich said.
Ulbrich’s procurement tool includes precision round and flat wire for braiding applications, including stents, catheters, cannula and more. The e-commerce and rapid prototyping solutions are designed to help customers procure the highest-quality braid material faster.
