Efficient and controlled syringe feed system


Wolfertschwenden, 26.09.2016 - For the first time MULTIVAC is presenting its own solution for the automatic infeed of prefilled syringes, which can be seamlessly integrated into a packaging line.

syringe feed system


The system is designed for prefilled glass or plastic syringes with or without hollow needles. With a processing speed of up to 300 injections per minute, syringes with a diameter of 6.5 to 25 mm and a length of 70 to 150 mm can be controlled and thus reliably fed into a thermoforming packaging machine.

These delicate products are transported hanging by a product infeed conveyor to the actual loading system, as the syringes are held on the flange. By means of transport rails the syringes travel arrive at a star wheel, where they are separated and oriented. The previously vertically positioned syringes are then horizontally positioned. The star wheel transfers the syringes to a servo-driven trapeze belt. There they are taken up by a pick and place robot and deposited in the pack cavity of the thermoforming packaging machine.

The infeed system guarantees a controlled infeed process and offers a high degree of flexibility with the option of easy and fast conversion between various syringe and carrier formats. The star wheel and trapeze belt can be replaced in a short time without the use of tools - this reduces downtimes, thus increasing the efficiency of the entire system. Control is user-friendly and safe via the HMI of the thermoforming packaging machine.
