Marchesini Group: Cartoner for syringes in cardboard trays

Marchesini Group’s MA352 horizontal continuous-motion cartoner is equipped with specially-designed magazine units for feeding trays at high speeds, and is also equipped with two Robocombi Robotic infeed systems, one for erecting the trays and one for feeding syringes to produce cartons packed with syringes in cardboard trays.

The tray is made of cardboard (mono-material), which complies with sustainable criteria important in pharmaceutical packaging. To protect syringes, the cardboard tray uses an internal structure that is capable of holding the syringe firmly in place throughout the entire packaging process.

The MA352 with Robcombi is a compact, reliable, flexible robotic packaging system comes with magazine feed units (from 2 to 8) capable of reaching production rates of up to 400 syringes/min. The cartoner is equipped with two Robocombis (3-axes robot with vacuum pick-up head), which picks up the trays fed from the magazines, erects them and places them directly in the bucket chain of the cartoner with continuous motion. The second Robocombi picks up the syringes, rotates them 90 degrees to position them horizontally inside the formed trays. Both robots are controlled by just one PC, making the operators’ tasks easier to manage. After the syringes are placed in the trays, the trays holding the syringes can be packaged either individually or grouped in layers.

The compact layout of the model MA352 is built entirely with balcony design, making it totally accessible and visible, with quick change-over times and minimal maintenance.
