5 December 2018
Xyntek Incorporated delivers turnkey collaborative robot case packing solution to customer in time to meet the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) deadline. The validated serialization and aggregation solution integrates state-of-the-art technologies in packaging line automation, real-time controls and material handling, machine vision, and collaborative robotics to address the regulatory and business requirements of a major pharmaceutical company.

The solution, designed, implemented, and validated by Xyntek, handles a wide variety of bottles. The solution features the versatile Universal Robot UR-5 collaborative robot and the Antares Tracking System serialization platform, including an Antares Vision 360-Vision System to automate unit-to-case aggregation. The line also integrates a bottle topsert applicator with a dedicated vision system to verify correct application. The collaborative robot is equipped with interchangeable end effectors to handle the wide variety of bottle sizes, enabling a 15-minute change over. Xyntek's turnkey offering included a GMP documentation set and a Quantitative Risk Analysis to ensure operator safety in the collaborative space.
