Take your medical device production to the next level with the most advanced production line for High Mix / Low Volume manufacturing.
We help you to automate your medical device assembly – worldwide.
modules for medical
Workpiece carrier setup
Automatically setup the workpiece carries for a specific device assembly and feed them to the automation process.
Fed your prefilled syringes in a tub or Rondo tray to the system. Integrated quality controls monitor the condition of the flange or the presence of the RNS.
Feeding of attachements
Whether Backstop or Extended Finger Flange, feed your attachments as bulk material, and they will be assembled right on the spot.
Plunger rod Feeding
Feed your plunger rods for the syringes assembly as bulk material and they will be assembled right on the spot.
Needle guard feeder
Fed your Needle Shield Safety Devices trays into the tray drawer. The integrated robot picks and places same onto the respective workpiece carriers. An integrated process station allows for force-displacement controlled assembly.
Your devices are directly provided with the appropriate labels during the process. The quality of the thermal transfer or CO2 laser imprints is monitored inline and defective labels are sorted out directly.
Fed your auto-injectors with our autonomous tray stacker module. Integrated quality controls monitor the condition of the auto-injectors.
Laser marking of auto-injectors
Your devices are directly provided with the appropriate laser markings during the process. The quality CO2 laser imprints is monitored inline and defective markings are sorted out directly.
Assembly of syringes and auto-injectors
Whether syringes assembly or auto-injectors, assemble your medical devices right on the spot to finished products. Integrated quality control monitor the condition of the devices.
Finished part discharge
Your fully assembled devices are removed automatically by the robot and get placed in a tray. The trays can be stacked on a trolley by a tray stacker and thus made available for downstream packaging processes.
High Mix / Low Volume device assembly
The trend toward product customization and decentralized production increases the need for flexibility. Our solution is a perfect fit for High Mix / Low Volume medical device assembly at an output rate of 15 ppm.
Specializing in syringes, PENs & auto-injectors, the device assembly MicroFactory enables fast, automated changeover to new products and minimizes manual labor. Read more: How to improve efficiency in High Mix / Low Volume manufacturing.
Single process to full automation
With the ESSERT MicroFactory, you can align individual manufacturing steps to a fully automated production process.
- Standardization: Our standardized robot modules provide the perfect basis for your processes.
- Process Modules: Perfectly designed, standardized process modules to meet any application.
- ESSERT MicroFactory: Probably the most intelligent and flexible interaction of processes to form a scalable manufacturing line.
Use our standardized ADVANCED Robotic Workstation modules to automate your manual processes.
You can validate the automated processes in the pre-series and later transfer them to a MicroFactory with little effort, thus scaling your production.
At Roche, we were looking for a modular, flexible solution for assembling different devices and found this solution in ESSERT´s automation platform. The collaboration with ESSERT was characterized by a high level of innovation and the willingness to adapt to the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry.
The robot workstation impresses with its flexibility, scalability and integration of state-of-the-art camera technologies.
