Our MMT Family


A Long History of Innovation

Founded in 1952 by Miner Gleason and Robert Barhorst, Glebar was established to manufacture machine tools based on the principles of centerless grinding. Located in Ramsey in Northern New Jersey, our expertise in manufacturing has supplied our customers with custom solutions incorporating the latest technology, and produced equipment that provides an efficient and controlled manufacturing process.


Over half a century in operation, Glebar has helped customers to drastically improve throughput, while enhancing the quality of their products and the efficiency of their operations. Glebar’s innovations have replaced alternative technologies such as lathes, OD grinders, and Blanchard grinders, with precision, high-volume production turnkey systems. We collaborate with our customers to integrate our systems into their processes, and effectively streamline their production. Over the years, Glebar has designed and manufactured an array of machine tools for its customers: centerless grinders, form grinders, gauging systems dressing machines and other microgrinding systems.


Synergy in Product Integration and Innovation in Technology

SYNEO’s medical manufacturing products and services focus on solving some of the largest manufacturing problems for some of the smallest of minimally-invasive device applications. SYNEO machine, cutting tool, and specialty manufacturing services target the automation of cutting, feeding, slitting, flaring, grinding, skiving, printing, punching, assembly, and hole drilling of device components such as catheters and guide wires as well cutting and coring applications of human tissue.


SYNEO is the product of the 2011 merger of two industry peers – ASG Medical Systems and Technical Innovations – combining medical manufacturing automation and precision hole making expertise into a single entity. SYNEO is a machine automation and tooling services company that is headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida USA, with manufacturing locations in Florida and Angleton, Texas and forward-deployed sales and service offices in Galway, Ireland, and Shenzhen, China.


Focused on Catheters for Over 15 Years

Focused on Catheters for Over 15

CATHTIP’s catheter tipping and hole punching machines, dies, drills and tooling are proudly made in the U.S.A., since 1995.
