All-in-one solution – syringes labelling and packing line allowed our customer to automate production process, which was initially divided into multiple steps. Manual labour as well as semi-automatic. Now all activities are integrated into one fully automated machine
- replacing multistage human work with an automatic line
- multiple syringes and label formats
- various types of secondary packaging
Intrex AP – 1000 – multiple processes in one machine
Feeding and product handling
High capacity container allows non-stop work for at least 1 hour. Vibrant feeder allows to feed syringes and prepares for robot pick and place action.
Fast pick and place robot - Fanuc M2iA
The robot, with its own camera, locates the layout of syringes to pick them up and precisely place on the transporter.
Intrex 200+ labelling head and thermal transfer overprinter Domino V230i
Domino V230i mounted onto fast Intrex 200 + applicator prints LOT and EXP numbers on label.
Print is inspected by Cognex vision system with OCR/OCV tools. A label with incorrect print is rejected by rewinding action and is not applied on a syringe. Correct label is applied with high precision on product.
In the next step label presence and cap presence are inspected by Cognex camera. Products with no label or cap are rejected.
Syringes – packing into boxes
Empty box is stabilized and syringes are moved from main conveyor into a box – layer by layer. After each layer, the box is rotated 180 degrees in order to ensure the best layout of syringes inside.
More than 4 formats of boxes, 5 different packing configurations – from 2 to 6 layers
High resolution printer – Domino G320i and packing process verification
During the packing process – high resolution print (2D and production data) is applied by G320i printer mounted onto a traverse. A weighing unit inspects syringes’ presence in the box. Incomplete packed box with incorrect number of syringes is rejected.
