Braiding or Twisting: Depending on the type of suture, the filaments may be braided or twisted together to form the final suture. Monofilament sutures skip this step.

Equipment needed: Braiding or twisting machines

Coating: Some sutures are coated with materials to enhance their properties, such as reducing tissue drag, increasing knotting ease, or controlling the rate of absorption for absorbable sutures.

Equipment needed: Coating machines

Sterilization: The sutures are then sterilized to ensure they are safe for use in surgical procedures. Equipment needed: Sterilization equipment (like autoclaves, ethylene oxide sterilizers, etc.)

Attachment of Needle: The suture is then attached to a needle, either through a swaged (eyeless) or drilled-eyed needle.

Equipment needed: Needle attachment machines

Packaging: Lastly, the suture-needle combination is packaged into sterile containers for distribution. Equipment needed: Packaging machines
