Design & Manufacturing of a Custom Storage Containment System

A pharmaceutical client was looking for an innovative solution to manage the storage of a controlled narcotic. They needed a system that would remove all manual operations from their tablet room. We designed and built this pill storage containment system, with the distinction of being the only robotic system of its kind in the nation. This fully contained system included features such as a Kuka robot, discharge and docking station, floor installed scales with loading guides and much more, all controlled with a highly developed interface.

The design process included the creation of 2D drawings for manufacturing approval and 3D drawings for operation verification - in all over 200 drawings were generated to insure fit and function. Manufactured primarily of 316L and 304-stainless steel, it featured ground welds, polished external surfaces, and mirror polished interior surfaces.

The first article was fully assembled and tested in our St. Louis plant before shipping to the customer's site. Our technicians provided full installation of the system, including shipping, rigging, leveling, and assembly of all of electro-mechanical systems, pneumatics, as well as the PLC interface.
