Syringe Assembly Machines

Syringe Assembly Machines - labeling, plunger rod, finger flange and safety device

When it comes to processing pharmaceutical packaging containers, it is essential to handle them with utmost care to maintain their integrity and quality. To ensure this, groninger syringe assembly machines as well as for vials and cartridges come equipped with a non-contact transfer system that gently processes the primary packaging without compromising its quality.

The modular and compact design of the system makes it highly adaptable to your specific requirements and packaging needs. Additionally, it can easily be expanded with additional process modules, offering you even more flexibility and customization options.

With groninger assembly solutions, you can be confident that your primary packaging will be processed with the utmost care and precision, ensuring the highest product quality standards for your pharmaceutical products.

Process steps of the syringe assembly machines

Plunger Rod

In the plunger rod insertion process, it is critical to ensure the integrity of the pharmaceutical packaging and plunger stopper. groninger has a patented on the market to process and insert the plunger rod, which prevents the plunger stopper from being displaced axially or rotated in the syringe when the plunger rod is inserted. All the parameters required for this can be set and saved in the recipe management. As a result, groninger offers a safe and reliable solution for your insertion process.

Labeling

Labels are an important carrier of information and, therefore, are very important for pharmaceutical products. Consequently, it is all the more important that the label is printed with the correct information and affixed in the intended location. groninger guarantees extremely precise and gentle labeling of different pharmaceutical primary packaging materials. Labels that have been detected as faulty are not applied to the packaging. All primary packaging is provided with an error-free label and labeled.

Backstop

The backstop prevents that the plunger stopper is unintentionally pulled out from the syringe barrel. In addition to this brake function, the backstop prevents the twisting of the plunger rod, so that the plunger rod cannot be unscrewed unintentionally during application. On top of that, with the help of the backstop, it creates an improved finger positioning. With the groninger solutions, the backstops are fully and carefully assembled on the flange of the syringe to ensure the basic functions of the backstop and preventing any damage to the glass or plastic syringes.

Safety Device

Billions of injections are administred around the world every year. Unfortunately, with such a large number of injections, there are numerous needlestick injuries that may result in infectious diseases. Therefore, it is all the more important to assemble prefillable syringes with safety components or safety devices. From semi-automated lab equipment to high-speed for safety devices, groninger has everything in its downstream processing portfolio.

Downstream equipment for pre-filled syringes, vials and cartridges

In downstream processing, careful and high-quality processing of the primary packaging is of immense importance. Therefore, groninger assembly machines can be equipped with a non-contact transport for the primary packaging.

Due to the modular and compact design, the lines can be flexibly adapted to your requirements and packaging and can be attached to existing groninger lines. The expansion of additional process functions is optionally possible at any time.
