For a customer in the medical industry, we designed and built a blister packaging and sealing machine, based on our LAP-C platform. Of course, the customers process and wishes were incorporated into the design. The LAP-C consists of six stations, with an extremely precise turntable moving the molds. Each station allows for a quadruple mold to be filled and processed simultaneously.
Station 1: The blisters are automatically placed from a repository into the quadruple mold.
Station 2: The syringes are manually placed in a chute and then automatically placed into the blister. Of course, it is possible to eliminate the manual activity by using an automated solution (for a larger buffer).
Station 3: The needles (in safety packaging) are separated in a vibratory filler and correctly orientated. The needles are then placed in the blisters two at a time. The needles and the syringe are pushed into the blister with a defined force.
Station 4: The presence of the products is checked with an optical system. This system also checks whether all components of the syringe are present. A Tyvek lid is then separated and placed. Finally, the correct placement of the lid is checked.
Station 5: The blister is sealed within the agreed seal window.
Station 6: If a product does not pass the visual inspection, or if it does not meet the preset seal window, it is rejected at this point. Approved products are exported.
This machine has a Siemens control. The LAP-C platform is suitable for various processes and has a small footprint. By using docking stations, we are able to guarantee accessibility of the platform.
