Preparation of components for
quality test

In connection with the insulin product, Novo Nordisk manufactures the components for the injection part itself. In order to comply with the strict quality requirements, a number of samples are taken from each production batch for control measurements. Before these can be made, the samples must first be glued to metal fixtures – a monotonous work that requires great accuracy and quite accurate dosing of the glue.

Technicon has automated this process. Based on our modular table system, we have designed a unit consisting of a UR5 robot fitted with a replaceable tool for handling components and dispensing glue. The tool is changed via an automatic tool changer depending on the current component. Modular tables are fitted with replaceable workpiece magazines for new and ready-glued workpieces. The cell is supplied with an external HMI screen, set up with a project-specific user interface, which in addition to being extremely user-friendly also provides access to reading all relevant process information.
