The application of industrial robots in the pharmaceutical industry is very common, including 1. fully automatic packaging machines, 2. automatic packaging machines for powder injection production lines, 3. intelligent light inspection machines for water needles and freeze-drying agents, and 4. automatic production lines for large infusion of soft bags.
Industrial robots are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry, and their main applications are as follows:
1. Fully automatic box packing machine
The speed of the fully automatic packaging machine can reach 260 boxes per minute, completely replacing manual loading of drugs and instructions into packaging boxes on the conveyor line. It automatically detects and removes packaging products with missing drugs and instructions, saving 5-8 people per unit of labor and improving production efficiency. It can also avoid manual errors and drugs with missing instructions entering the market.
2. Automatic packaging machine for powder needle production line
The powder needle production line automatic packaging machine is a large-scale production automatic box packing machine for producing powder needles and freeze-dried drugs. It automatically loads 50 antibiotic bottles at once, automatically inputs instructions, and achieves a speed of 40 boxes per minute, greatly saving manpower and improving packaging efficiency.
3. Intelligent lamp inspection machine for water needles and freeze-drying agents
This intelligent light inspection machine is an intelligent device that automatically detects foreign objects and packaging defects during the production of water and powder needles, with a speed of up to 800 bottles per minute. This intelligent light inspection machine is equipped with a large number of servers and servo motors. Through software design, it automatically rotates the camera. Compared with the standard requirements of the design, it can detect the appearance, liquid level, and the presence of impurities and foreign objects. It can completely replace manual inspection, greatly improving efficiency and avoiding manual errors (manual fatigue may occur for a long time). It can produce continuously 24 hours a day, saving more than 10 people/machine in labor. This intelligent light inspection machine has been widely used in various injection and freeze-drying pharmaceutical companies.
4. Automatic production line for soft bag infusion
This production line is a fully automatic flow production line for soft bag infusion production, which includes automatic forming of packaging film, automatic filling with valve caps, and automatic welding into finished products. It meets the requirements of drug GMP production and has a speed of 7500 bags/hour. This automatic production line adopts a large number of servers, servo motors, and robotic arms for automatic transportation, PLC automatic control, automatic film forming, automatic conveying, automatic positioning and filling, automatic valve capping, and automatic welding. It is currently a large-scale, high-precision and advanced pharmaceutical automatic equipment with optoelectronic integration.
In addition to the four main applications mentioned above, there are also automatic pill making machines, extraction and concentration production lines, and various large-scale drug inspection equipment, all of which use automation software, robotic arms, servo motor control, automatic transportation, and automatic control to complete various high-precision, high-quality, or dangerous production processes and inspection requirements. Its design principle, operation process, and precision requirements have exceeded those of ordinary robots. On the other hand, large pharmaceutical companies have extensively utilized industrial robots (robotic arms) instead of manual labor in packaging, warehousing, transportation, and warehouse management to complete heavy and simple handling and packaging tasks.
In summary, with the further development of manufacturing technology, optoelectronic technology, and computer technology, a large number of advanced automation equipment and industrial robots will be widely used in the production of the pharmaceutical industry.
