Equipment for the Pharmaceutical Disposables Industry
WARD designed this automated micro centrifuge tube capping system. High production throughput and the ability to handle multiple tube and cap sizes were critical to the project. The ingenuity of our engineering team enabled us to successfully meet both these challenges.
In addition to designing quick-change tooling that would easily accommodate 4 tubes and 2 cap styles, we devised a unique methodology for screwing the tube into the cap or the cap onto the tube. During installation, we interfaced this system with a customer-supplied bagging machine that would package the capped tubes in lots of 50.
WARD designed and patented a machine to automatically orient and rack pipette tips into racks. The machine had changeable tooling to allow all PIPETTE TIP sizes 10ul, 200ul, 300ul, 1000ul, 1200ul. Racks varied from 96 to 192 well racks.
WARD designed a machine to automatically install filters into pipette tips while in the racks. The machine had changeable tooling to allow all FILTER sizes 10ul, 200ul, 300ul, 1000ul, 1200ul. The tooling could be adjusted to insert at various depths.
