Plunger Rod and Backstop Insertion Machine
The syringes are manually fed into an infeed chute, which transfers them to the main transport system – an automated transport starwheel. The starwheel moves the product through four different stations, helping assemble up to 60 syringes per minute. Plunger rods are supplied from a vibratory sorting bowl and travel down a feed track to the insertion station. A pneumatically-actuated gripper assembly picks up the plunger rod from the end of the vibratory track and leverages a 2-axis robotic arm to thread it into a syringe. At the second station, backstops are carefully placed on the flange of each syringe. The third and fourth stations check for plunger rod and backstop presence.
- Available with labeling station (option)
Labeling and Plunger Rod Insertion Machine
The machine Type 607 is a rotary style assembly and labeling machine, able to process a wide variety of syringes and plunger rods. The servo controlled motion of the main drive in connection with the servo controlled rotation motion of the syringe allows very precise fine-tuning. The rotation-motion servo accurately monitors the torque therefore avoiding any motion of the plunger stopper. The plunger rod insertion is mechanically controlled offering a complete consistency of the motion. Additional features include a fully integrated vision system for verification of component assembly, print verification as well as a user-friendly touch screen operator interface terminal. A backstop assembly station can be added as an option.
