Filling, Capping & Labelling
There are many wastes within a manufacturing process and time is a waste which crops up over and over again. Labour is a big issue which affects this. Some tasks can be extremely laborious resulting in inaccuracies and a reduction in quality.
SP Automation & Robotics were approached by a high profile pharmaceutical company who were looking to reduce the amount of labour involved in their current process to increase throughput, repeatability, robustness and improve quality. This involved medical vials being filled with a liquid, screw capped and labelled. Due to the class of cleanroom that was being used for the filling process, the labelling was done outside of the cleanroom.
