Medical Device Assembly Syringe

A Multi-faceted Manufacturing Challenge

Our customer had a tight deadline to install an automated medical syringe assembly system to support their new product launch. 

The process consisted of mechanical assembly, adhesive application and cure, and robotic placement into packaging at the end of the line. There was also a concern with inspecting the incoming glass vials for cracks before and after assembly so that rejects could be identified before further processing.

The customer’s requirements for the finished system were demanding and had to meet a prescribed return on investment. Specifications included:

  • Assembly of a complex product with consistent accuracy
  • 100% inspection of incoming parts and in-process assemblies with inline reject processing
  • 2.5 second cycle time
  • ISO 7 (Class 10,000) clean room compatible
  • Multiple product types with minimal changeover
  • Single operator to reduce operating costs
  • Reduced scheduled maintenance and spares requirements
  • Maximized Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF)
  • Reduced cost and effort for validation process
