Klockner Medipak: QC sampling system

A QC sampling system for pharmaceutical packaging from Klöckner Medipak (Clearwater, FL) can be integrated easily into existing packaging processes and can be customized and expanded to meet individual applications and requirements.

QC sampling system is programmed to automatically remove and sequentially store samples for QC analysis at a regular interval during the packaging process making it easy to pinpoint when a problem occurred. System uses a 2-axis linear pick-and-place actuator and stop-pin mechanism to remove a sample from the conveyor. The sample is then placed on a servo-driven lowerator which stacks the sample into 1 of 2 magazines for storage and later QC analysis. Sample rate may be programmed according to elapsed time or per-piece count.
