All about us

Handling

Buffer options: flexible and precise

Optimize your line efficiency with accumulation between the upstream and downstream machines. Our accumulators let you decouple two machines, meaning you can run different equipment at varying speeds while still maintaining balance in the event of upstream or downstream stoppages.

Boost your secondary automation processes with our blister accumulator/sleever. The machine features inline blister accumulation, and you can accommodate a large range of blister sizes, plus have the option of secondary sleeving.

Syringe transport systems
Blister Accumulator/Sleever

Syringe transport systems: smooth and seamless

Create a smooth transit for your fragile syringe products using our smart solutions:

  • Gravity rails transport your products gradually from an overhead conveyor to lower-positioned equipment.
  • The switchback system uses a series of gravity rails running back and forth for compact high-capacity accumulation.
  • The drum buffer uses different gravity rails spaced equally around a rotating drum assembly to buffer a large batch of syringes.

Need extra protection for your syringes? Our non-contact buffer provides precise handling of each individual product through a pick-and-place. The intelligent and flexible robotic arm can move each of your syringes individually by picking them from the discharge conveyor of one machine and placing them into the infeed conveyor of the next. Your syringes can also be placed in or removed from the buffer in the event of equipment stoppages. 

The diverse options of buffer options can integrate seamlessly to fit with your specific project requirements. You can even start or stop your upstream and downstream equipment without affecting the performance of the adjacent equipment.

Specification options for your syringe buffers:

  • Glass Fill: 0.5 ml, 1 ml long, 1 ml short, 2 and 3 ml, 5 ml
  • Plastic Fill: 1 ml to 200 ml
  • Speed: 0 to 600+ syringes/minute
  • Capacity: 45 sec. to 15 min

Your benefits

Optimized efficiency

Gently pick and place individual products with our flexible robotic arm and decouple equipment when needed to reduce your downtime

Sustainable design

Keep your company’s carbon footprint compact with our oGMP-standard machine design – while accumulating over 10 minutes of syringes

Flexible customization

Whether you need a high-capacity drum or a low-capacity compact gravity rail – or anything in between – we adapt our advanced solutions to your specific needs

Buffer and sleever solutions for your blister products

Buffer and/or sleeve incoming blisters with our clean cGMP-standard blister buffer/sleever machine. You also have the option to let blister products bypass sleeving and continue directly to secondary packaging. The machine’s intuitive design helps you navigate and operate it easily, even at high speeds, with accelerated runtime. Your blister handling is low-maintenance – you can switchover change parts in minutes with no adjustments necessary. At the press of a button make PLC format changes.  Configuration options for you to choose from include:

  • high-speed vision inspection
  • pass-through mode
  • integrated infeed/outfeed conveyors

You can order this machine as a buffer only or with the additional sleeving option, to place your blisters into sleeves for transportation or storage.

Specification options for your blister bluffers:

  • Length: 70 mm to 235 mm
  • Width: 35 mm to 130 mm
  • Height: 1 mm to 25 mm
  • Speed: 400 bpm (blisters per minute)

Your benefits
