CIPM 2017: the Marchesini Group will show a customisable line designed to form and pack trays for syringes and vials
From April 19th to 21th, the Marchesini Group will take part in CIPM Qingdao, the industry's must-attend show in China. Line on show at International Hall (Booth S1-10) will be made up of the automatic deep draw thermoformer FBZ 320 and the horizontal continuous-motion cartoner BA 400 Argento. This line can process up to 240 trays and cartons a minute.
The FBZ 320 is a highly-innovative, flexible and user-friendly machine, thanks also to its quick and simple size change-over operations. It is designed to form trays for a variety of products (in this specific case, syringes and vials) using thermoformable materials. It is ideal for pharmaceutical environments where medium to high production speeds are required.
The syringes are sent from the machine upstream or feeding manually hanging in single rows: they are timed by a synchroniser, which places them with continuous motion into the buckets of the plug-in conveyor. From here, they are picked up with positive-motion by the Robomaster, developed specifically to infeed and handle delicate and fragile products, as indeed are syringes and vials.
The Robomaster - the robotic 4 axes pick and place feeding system patented by the Marchesini Group and positioned between the forming station and the sealing station - is the heart of the machine.
