Nelipak Healthcare Packaging to Demonstrate New Ways to Utilize Collaborative Robotic Technology to Optimize Process Automation at MD&M West 2018

Will Also Showcase Innovative Capabilities for Custom Thermoformed Medical Packaging at Booth 1970

WHO: Nelipak® Healthcare Packaging (“Nelipak”), a full-service global provider of custom thermoformed packaging that provides superior protection for medical devices and pharmaceuticals.

WHAT: Nelipak Healthcare Packaging  will be demonstrating a new way to utilize collaborative robotic technology in conjunction with its NX-T1 cleanroom heat tray sealer to optimize process automation. At booth 1970, Rethink Robotics’ Sawyer robot will work with Nelipak’s NX-T1 to demonstrate high-performance automation by collaboratively working with operators handling medical device and pharmaceutical packaging.

Designed and built by Nelipak, its range of custom built sealing machines are ideal for Class 7 cleanroom use for medical device and pharmaceutical applications. Easy to operate with low maintenance requirements, these high performance tray and blister lid sealers come with a range of options to suit any manufacturing need.

Incorporating robots in the manufacturing process can help reduce human error and improve quality for increased patient safety. Rethink Robotics’ Sawyer robot is designed to work safely in collaboration with humans, and is the easiest train – fastest to-deploy robot on the market. Sawyer’s adaptable automation also allows manufacturers to adjust to constant change, including short production runs, quick changes and modifications, seasonality and ebbs and flows in demand.

The NX-T1 tray sealer is highly complementary to Nelipak’s design, development and manufacturing capabilities. At MD&M West, Nelipak will also highlight how these innovative capabilities can be applied to today’s packaging challenges to create optimized custom solutions that are ideal for even the most stringent healthcare environments.
