CASE STUDY: Medical Assembly

Overview

The Problem

The modern manufacture of medical equipment such as surgical needles, medical catheters and other disposable parts have high manufacturing standards. Rigorous production and test procedures are a necessity to maintain high quality products and to meet exacting standards. A modern production line needs to maintain a high speed, while ensuring a 100% quality inspection of parts to guarantee results. There is often a requirement to collect and store inspection data for process control to prove the quality of the product which can also be offered with our bespoke GUI.

The ORLIN Solution

SMAC LAL-37 is able to pick and place a part into an assembly line, apply force (punch a hole, crimp a part, place an eyelet etc) and to then check the position of the finished assembly. The position can be measured to 5 microns and parts can be assembled precisely in the position specified. 100% of the data from the assembly and inspection of parts can be saved for later inspection. The assembly machine can be easily reconfigured for many different parts.
