AN ADVANCED ROBOTIC LINE AT CIPM 2015
News, Company news, Product news
Unica, the advanced robotic line by Marchesini Group, will take pride in representing the best of Italian-made pharmaceutical packaging solutions at CIPM 2015, the industry's must-attend show in China.
The Marchesini Group’s technical and commercial staff will welcome customers and visitors in Hall E1 - Booth 27 to show the company’s core business on the Chinese market: a wide range of complete standard lines from the primary packaging - blister machines and thermoformers - to the secondary packaging, to the wrapping and palletizing machines.
Unica on show
Unica integrates the deep draw thermoforming and the carton packaging processes in a single monobloc unit. The keywords that inspired its development are compactness, easy-to-use and great flexibility thanks to the employment of robotics.
It all starts with compactness - Unica is manufactured entirely with balcony structure, which guarantees the separation between the mechanical section and the working area, and thus the absolute sterility of the products processed in total compliance with GMP standards in terms of packaging. Outstanding perfect visibility and accessibility of all stations and groups make the line very easy to clean.
Why is Unica easy-to-use? - The machine has been designed to manage all the operations - such as the carton and leaflet loading - in one access area. The use of a shared PC for the two sections, the thermoformer and the cartoner, and the installation of one operator panel ensure a faster management of the entire line, thanks to the possibility of recalling very easily all the set parameters. Special attention has been paid to size changing, which is performed without using tools, thanks to quick-release couplings and locking handles completely managed by PC.
The bigger plus: advanced robotics - The Unica’s main innovation regards the integration of two Robovisions, patented four-axis robots by Marchesini capable of picking-up and handling individual products of any shape and size (such as ampoules, syringes small tubes and dispensers, and also combination of products in thermoformed trays) from a belt and feeding them to both the thermoformer and the cartoner.
The use of the most advanced robotics both upstream, during product feeding into the thermoformed tray and downstream to the monobloc, during the transfer of the tray to the cartoner, allows to package a wide variety of cosmetic and pharmaceutical products at high speeds, up to 120 cartons per minute, in a footprint of only 8 meters.
