We were tasked by the European site of a prominent international pharma company to design an automatic assembly line that could assemble a cartridge-based pen injector and accommodate future production expansion.
The linear motion platform BasiQX XTV provided a modular and scalable system for designing a solution for this customer. It represents our dedication to designing products that can provide long-term value to clients by reducing the total cost of ownership and futureproofing their investment.
This line is currently suitable for low-medium volume production (50ppm) of 2 pens with different doses, but the machine could be rapidly scaled up. It was developed with a range of options that support high OEE such as extensive use of automation modules (pick & place units, robots and delta picker robots) and inspection systems (using vision technology and sensors). The modular structure of our systems also enabled us to embed a customized labeling unit.
This project was supported by our in-house capabilities. To help the customer save costs and increase efficiency, we participated in the design of various tray layouts for product loading and unloading to and from the line.
