Delta ModTech offers converting and heat seal pouching solutions at Medtec Europe in Stuttgart, Germany 12-14 April, 2016
Delta ModTech® offers innovative solutions for manufacturing a variety of complex medical, pharmaceutical, label, security, RFID, packaging and cosmetic products.
Manufacturing medical and pharmaceutical products can be the most demanding of all converting and packaging applications. Every product that reaches end users must be correctly formulated, wrapped, labelled, and contained in a way that ensures the recipient can easily and reliably open and use the product. Perfection is expected.
On their part, converters must provide totally secure control of all the materials and medications, the exacting processes that assemble them, and deliver them as readyto-use products. It’s a complex mechanical process demanding complete accuracy at every turn while minimising waste. The machines used must be highly automated, designed and built with all these requirements in mind while having the reliability, ease-of use and flexibility to handle multiple types of jobs.
For instance, key functions such as laminating, metering medications, diecutting, labelling, inspection, embossing, heat-sealing, and applying security features can be done efficiently only when computer controlled servo motors are delivering consistent speeds, and coordinating of each step in the converting process. Yet, ensuring reliable performance can be challenging.
Speed and accuracy benefits
The HMI (Human Machine Interface) developed and employed by Delta ModTech addresses this by simplifying set-up and providing end-to-end accuracy for virtually any medical converting application. Sensors throughout the system, tightly integrated with the system’s software, help ensure that the machine ‘knows’ which dies and other tools are being used. The addition of a vision inspection system that is set up at the same time, can provide immediate feedback— including stopping the machine—when errors are detected. Together, these help reduce set-up time to a matter of minutes while assuring accuracy for every step in the manufacturing or assembly process. The bottom-line value for converters is greater productivity, less waste and fewer errors.
Developing and building machines that support customer needs in this way requires thinking like a fabricator or a converter. “The engineers developing the machines must understand our needs and those of our customers,” affirms a producer of medical and cosmetic products. “Although the machines are all customised and highly automated, flexibility is a top priority. We still must be able to add a new capability or change part of a process without having to change the entire machine.” Adopting flexible automation technologies can help to empower pharmaceutical, label, RFID, packaging, and consumer goods manufacturers to do more for their customers. “Delta ModTech lets us offer things we’ve never been able to offer before.”
