Delicate Handling of Nanoneedle: Cartoner with Smart Infeed System

Cartoner and Smart Feed System for Flow-Wrapped Nanoneedle

A project of cartoning machine joined by a smart conveyor system and a pick and place feeder for delicate objects: hypodermic medical needles (nanoneedle) flow-wrapped was finally accepted and delivered to ELITER Packaging Machinery’s client in the medical sector.

What is a smart conveyor system?

A smart conveyor system consists of a series of conveyors with different functions: phasing, timing, control and feed, to organize articles for downstream packaging (flow wrapping, shrink wrapping, cartoning, carton sleeving, etc.) from a random manner into a precisely timed flow for feeding.

Smart Conveyor System

Usually and along the flow path, a smart conveyor system has:

  • A supply conveyor that accepts the initial inflow of flow-wrapped needles from the upstream line
  • A phasing conveyor that organizes the needles in a spaced and regular relationship. This is a conveyor of variable speed that is automatically controlled by the program
  • A transfer conveyor that works at a configured and synchronized speed to feed the timely separated articles into the target conveyor or target machine downstream.

The smart conveyor system is often an ideal solution for infeed through a straight coming line between units and equipment along the packaging and production line.


Feeding System with Bernoulli gripper for delicate Pick and Place

Bernoulli grippers are a variety of suction devices for the adsorption transfer of light and delicate articles or those with smooth surfaces: bubble film, thin cloths, paper, etc., the advantages of Bernoulli grippers are basically:

  • The optimal choice for transporting delicate, thin, and brittle workpieces
  • Gentle contact for lifting and adsorption that minimizes damage caused to the surface
  • Minimized air consumption that calls for a low level of energy
  • The ideal solution for minimal contact gripping and for gripping pliable, porous and brittle workpieces
