Project Description

Pharmaceutical Injector Springs

Application: Pharmaceutical Auto Injector

Problem: Looking for a way to automate their assembly line, our customer asked us to assist them with the spring pick and place portion of the line.

The MWI Solution:

  • Met with the customer’s automation team to determine how to best facilitate an automated cell for spring loading
  • Developed a custom plastic tray that could be introduced and discarded by the robotic arm of the assembly machine
  • Designed the tray so that the same robot arm could grab each spring and place them into the assembly
  • Ran trials with two types of plastics to see which worked best with the robot based on vision system effectiveness

Result(s):

The design was approved and trays were introduced into the production cell for testing. The customer was able to increase their assembly throughput 500% per hour. MW Industries was asked to design the tray concept for their other major programs, each with unique challenges and different tray designs.
