MARKET FOCUS: A ROBOTIC MONOBLOC FOR THE US MARKET
News, Product news
The Marchesini Group looks forward to welcoming all its customers to Pack Expo International 2014 in Chicago.
Within our 250 square meter booth, No. W 743 located in the McCormick Place’s West Building, we will be exhibiting our robotic Monobloc, the Unica, which integrates deep draw thermoforming, robotic pick and place transfer, and carton packaging operations into a small footprint suitable for most packaging areas. The Unica features an ergonomic structure, simplified machine management and state of the art robotics. The Unica is also the perfect choice for sterile packaging of syringes, vials and carpules. The Unica operates at speeds of up to 120 cartons/minute and is also ideally suited for small containers, tubes and dispensers.
The Unica has been designed and built with a balcony structure, which separates the mechanical section from the work section, thus guaranteeing total protection of the products processed, in full compliance with GMP standards. All the stations and units are visible and easily accessible, plus the whole line can be change over and cleaned quite easily.
The line’s footprint measures a mere eight meters/26.5 feet, and has been designed to be able to load the cartons and leaflets from just one access point. Size change-over operations are PC-aided without having to use tools thanks to quick-release couplings and locking handles.
Each operation, from loading the product to transferring it from the bucket to the cartoner, is performed by cutting-edge robotics. In the most delicate part of the packaging process, the machine upstream and that downstream are linked by two Robovision robots with four-axes, patented by the Marchesini Group. Marchesini’s robotics have revolutionized product handling with its small footprint and unlimited flexibility. The robots pick-up the syringes, vials, carpules from the conveyor belt/table or tray and transfer them directly to the thermoformer. The second Robovision transfers the sealed trays directly to the cartoner. These units make Unica a compact and versatile line capable of processing vials, cartridges, small containers and syringes, whether they are single, multiple or combo, thanks to the flexibility of the Robovision Robots, and our patented Vibrating Feed Table for vials and carpules.
The Marchesini Group will reach the American venue following a very eventful year, which started in May with the celebration of the group’s 40th anniversary of its founding. In September, there was the Live Aseptic Show at our Corima facility in Siena focusing on the group’s brand dealing in sterile pharmaceutical filling and packaging. In October, there was the Track & Trace seminar at our World Head Quarters in Pianoro, where major international experts discussed topics of pharmaceutical traceability and serialization.
