SCARA robots automate medical syringe manufacturing

When a large medical device original equipment manufacturer (OEM) needed to automate coating plastic syringes for medical diagnostics, including a COVID-19 application, it turned to NuTec Tooling Systems.

NuTec employed four Epson G6 Cleanroom SCARA robots into its syringe coating machine. The automated process gave the plastic syringe a glass-like finish and enabled feasible mass production. Ease of use and application versatility within the Epson RC+ development environment, plus an ISO-3 rating and compliance with cleanroom standards, makes the robots ideal for this project.
