Producing syringes with custom dimensions and shape

Syringes are complex products that require an extremely precise forming process: Stevanato Group syringe manufacturing lines include several specifications, which are normally optional, such as servomotors for controlling the most critical manufacturing phases (cone forming, total length) and flow meters for automatically regulating the burners.

Syringe line production

Stevanato Group glass converting lines come as a turnkey package, including the forming unit and other process equipment, or as stand-alone modules. Completely automatic washing equipment to remove particles from the glass and reduce cosmetic defects is also available.

Check here the options

1. TUBE LOADERS Continuous-feeding glass tube loader: high reliability with limited human intervention
2. DIMENSIONAL AND COSMETIC CONTROLS 100% inline controls to ensure the highest quality standards
3. AFTERFORMING LINE  Gentle handling the containers to the annealing oven, granting unaltered cosmetic quality and mechanical features
4. ANNEALING OVENS  Devised to guarantee an optimal thermal profile: highly performing and completely safe for the operator
5. NEEDLE ASSEMBLY Our equipment is geared torwards ensuring ease of use, low footprint, and energy saving 
6. AUTOMATIC PACKING MACHINES The System picks the containers and automatically places them inside trays or blisters

Siliconization

Siliconization is a critical process that influences container performance: distribution must be optimized and monitored to ensure a safe and effective administration to the patient and to guarantee drug quality.
Silicone, in the form of emulsions and/or oil, is primarily used as a lubricant. When applied to syringes, it favours and improves the glideability.
Moreover, the silicone layer minimizes the interactions between the product and the glass container, and prevents certain products from sticking to the internal surface, making the glass appear perfectly transparent.

Optimizing control of the process through precise automation, our siliconization lines are designed to:

• Increase gliding performance between the glass
and internal components (e.g. rubber parts)
• Improve the flow of liquid solutions inside the
container, reducing “dead volume” concerns
• Reduce the interactions between the
pharmaceutical product and glass container
• Process the most common sprayed materials:
silicon emulsion or silicon oil

Features

Pre-heated with an electrical heating system

Independent delivery system for each spray nozzle

Volumetric pumps for silicone dose accuracy

Silicone spray nozzle and air flows to uniformly spread the silicone along the internal surface of the glass product

Baking lehr with electrical or gas heating system. The baking lehr can be installed on the siliconization line or be an independent unit, depending on the type of silicone used.
