Medical device assembly, labeling, handling & packaging

Medical device assembly

autoinjector

Medical devices such as auto-injectors, safety devices and pens contribute to beneficial patient outcomes, as they support easy administration and therapy adherence. Before the medication reaches the patients, the devices must be reliably assembled, labeled and packed. This is where the Syntegon solutions come into play: our systems cover the safe assembly, labeling, handling, and secondary packaging of medical devices. Thanks to their modular platform design, our manual, semi and fully automated systems allow for a high level of customization, helping you meet market requirements, while always having patient safety in mind.

Syntegon standard assembly machines are designed for a long lifetime, and 24-hour operations. All components are from recognized brands, and obtainable all over the world. We never use any component or automation part to 100%, always leaving a buffer capacity. We have a large range and pre-standardized configurations to cover most needs. Using our standardized modules, we secure a fast and reliable execution.

Different types of machines

Our assembly machines are modular and fully flexible for any demand you might have. Our machines feature a future-proof design, facilitating agility, flexibility and speed.

Assembly

This machine is designed for small batches and clinical trials with auto-injectors, safety devices, pens, and other standard devices. It features a workstation for manual loading and unloading of components and devices; all other processes are performed automatically. This way, the range manual assembly machines achieve an output of between one and five devices per minute.

range-manual-assembly-machine-01

 

The semi-automatic machine comes with a manual infeed, while all assembly processes are automated. An upgrade to an automatic infeed is possible at any time. With an output of up to 50 devices per minute, the machines of this range have a big selection of add-on modules.

auto-injector-device

 

Our fully automated device assembly machines can assemble up to 300 devices per minute. The fully automatic infeed and outfeed is fully integratable with upstream and downstream equipment. Moreover, we offer you a large selection of add-on modules like labelling, tracing etc.

machine-for-pen-assembly-fully-automatic

 

Our labeling solutions span from manual loads to 500 automatic labels per minute. All labeling systems are fully servo-driven and have an integrated HMI with full control of all parameters. To maintain high outputs, the platform features label reject before application, and automatic reel exchange. Moreover, you receive integrated vision verification and a selection of printing technologies.

high-speed-labelling-machine

 

Packaging

Our case packers are highly modular and can fit any product need. The high-speed unit features with several additional options, e.g. for traceability. It is adjustable for different sizes of cartons and shipper boxes. Thanks to its modularity, our case packers can accommodate several different layout scenarios.

Handling

The TLU is a highly versatile tray handling unit, which can be adjusted and designed to accommodate most containers at speeds up to 600 units per minute. We can adopt UDI to individual containers at maximum speed with different marking technologies.

tray-loading-unit-machine

 

The Syntegon rondo tray loader and unloader is your ideal solution with speeds up to 600 containers per minute. The systems can be integrated upstream or downstream, with additional modules for marking and integrity checking.

pharma-injection-02

 

Our de-nesters and re-nesters are adaptable for almost any upstream or downstream equipment like inspection machines. They can run with or without glass-to-glass contact and are suited for both nested and bulk containers.
