ESS Technologies: Diagnostic test kit assembly and packaging

ESS Technologies has designed a complete end-to-end solution for high speed assembly and packaging of diagnostic test kits.

The system integrates material handling, product feeding and packaging equipment, and incorporates automated pick and place modules, multi-axis FANUC robots, vision, and inspection. The system assembles diagnostic test kits, visually inspects them, and loads completed test kits into trays at a rate of 45 test kits per minute. Incorrect test kits are rejected prior to loading into trays using the TaskMate™ Robotic System. As the assembled test kit moves to the packaging process, the full trays are unloaded using a second FANUC robot and TaskMate™ System. This second robotic loading system incorporates a Model 430iC, which uses FANUC’s integrated vision and line tracking to pick assembled test kits from the tray and place them into a continuous motion flow wrapper infeed. The test kit is collated with a moisture-absorbing desiccant pack and pouched to complete the packaging process.
