Bosch Packaging Technology company Moeller & Devicon pen assembly machines are designed for standard four-piece disposable pens consisting of a pen cap, a cartridge holder, the cartridge itself and a dosing mechanism. Machines for auto-injectors are designed to assemble either all single components—upper part, lower part, the syringe and the tool to hold the syringe—or a combination of pre-assembled and single components.
Due to a scalable level of automation, the assembly equipment can be adapted to different requirements and processes. When it comes to clinical trials, small manual workstations are suitable. When a switch to commercial production is needed, semi-automated or fully automated assembly machines can be used. With the scalable approach, process validation of the equipment can be transferred from one machine to another. This saves time and costs when production enters the commercial scale.
The modular design of the machine platforms makes it possible to adapt and retrofit them easily for future market requirements. For example, the integration of robots for specific process steps can be accomplished with only minor adaptations. The assembly machines can be complemented by equipment for container handling, filling and closing, inspection, labeling and end-of-line packaging.
The machine range offers a compact design, a clear overview of all stations and accessibility. The result: batch changes can be accomplished quickly, without loss of time for cleaning. This allows manufacturers to be as agile and flexible as possible in rapidly changing markets.
