SHL Automation Increases Automation Solutions to Enhance Run Time for Autoinjector Assembly

SHL Automation is in the process of improving its automated sub-assembly systems. As the number of drug delivery devices, especially pen injectors and autoinjectors, is increasing, the company has planned for the enhancement.

The plan includes the streamlining and re-engineering of component assembly for an important autoinjector program.

The company aims the programme to improve cycle time, overcome restrictions in any automated system, and offer complete visual inspection. SHL Automation has started to develop a distinct hybrid automation system by using advanced technology and software. The new hybrid system is being constructed around a linear assembly line with fully automatic and semi-automatic modules. The automatic modules can be modified to a complete fully automatic line, featuring automatic tray loading stackers, pick and play robots, and bowl feeders, according to the requirements of the autoinjector.

The project set-up also includes cosmetic vision controls to make sure customer specifications are satisfied. For separate modules, process qualification can be performed to reduce the assembly validation time.
