Project Brief

To design and manufacture a tray loading system for inhaler cans which would allow automatic loading of inhalers into trays without the need for manual handling.

Technical Solution

  • Tekpak worked with the client to design and manufacture a tray design that would facilitate robotic handling
  • Tekpak designed and developed a customised tray handling system which was added to our standard robot cell to form a fully automated system.
  • Quality control features were added to ensure that there was no fallen or missed product.
  • Communication with the clients plant management/Scada system to give live and historic management information for data analysis.

Results

  • Automated system
  • Reduced manual labour and engineer intervention
  • Fast line clearance
  • Completely systemised process which could be easily validated
