New Disposable Liquid Drug Filling and Assembly System
This technology allows our customer to utilize pre-sterilized / pre-validated plastic filling train kits that allow companies to reduce autoclaving costs, validation costs, set up time, and reduces contamination risk between batches. The robotic system will take vials, cartridges, or syringes from bulk and assemble the components automatically at a rate of 100 parts per minute. The filling system uses peristaltic pumps that are aseptic to fill product with a fill volume accuracy of +/- Ѕ%. The peristaltic pumps are not only accurate but washable where the pumps components do not need to be autoclaved reducing validation costs, set up time, and contamination risk. The filling system is also programmable for different products.

New washable High speed case Pick and place packaging technology, faster than other case packers on the market.
This technology is a cost effective solution for case packing of various products including food, pharmaceutical, medical and cosmetic products like bottles, trays, cartons, vials, etc and packages one or two cases per cycle to achieve the fastest packaging rates available. The y axis is programmable and the x axis is mechanically adjustable to meet various sizes of products. Payload capacities of up to 20lbs can be achieved and the system is built for high pressure washing/cleaning of IP67 standard. The Magnum Servo-Pack A series is designed for food, beverage, and pharmaceutical companies to allow advancing the case packing rates for a small foot print machines to a new level of above 30 cases per minute.

Medical/pharmaceutical device assembly technology takes parts from bulk to assemble pharmaceutical devices using mechanical and programmable servo driven technology
RDS provides assembly and inspection of medical/pharmaceutical device including fabrication of the vibratory bowls, vision inspection technology, servo driven robotics to assemble and press the parts to complete the assembly of an auto-injector syringe product. All units are 100% inspected and tracked if a reject is detected the system automatically rejects the unit. Good parts are accumulated and stacked into trays one layer at a time by the machine.

Centralized parts feeding to feed multiple production lines for assembly
Our latest technology starts with a large tote delivery and parts dumping into a centralized hopper. The parts get distributed by separate conveyors on demand to multiple feeding locations. These heavy duty conveyors hold up to 600 lbs of parts that can feed interlocking metal components. Belting for the conveyors prevents jams and are easily removable for parts maintenance. This technology eliminates the need for manual operators that were required to keep assembly lines full of product and down time from maintenance issues/jams on the line as well as reduces fork lift traffic.

1st of a kind pharmaceutical liquid filling and assembly technology is developed for speeds up to 100 cartridges per minute using peristaltic pumps.
This state of the art machine assembles and fills two style cartridges with a change over taking about 15 minutes. A four component assembly gets filled to the accuracy of +/- .02 ml. The assembled cartridges include: tube, plunger, and needle assembly with stopper and disc. Components are assembled at 12 per cycle with high accuracy of assembly and filling. As parts are assembled vision inspection stations check parts that have been assembled for quality and rejects parts automatically into a tray with registered positions noting the specific rejects. Vision display screens give the operator a view of the inspections. The system is completely washable including the aseptic peristaltic pumps that do not require the parts to be autoclaved. These systems can be set up with disposable filling trains to reduce cleaning, set up time, autoclaving costs and contamination risk.


October 2010

New robotic printing technology for multiple size products and many different messages is developed by RDS.
Rapid Development Services develops a programmable robotic machine to print detailed information on multiple size cartons, crates, or products. The robotic system allows you to print on any location of the products 5 faces/sides. This high speed flexible system automates printing for all production and can adapt new printing data with programming changes. System has minimal changeovers from one size to another taking about 15 minutes with minimum ink usage and maintenance.

Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new welding, polishing, and grinding technology using 6-axis robotics.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new technology for welding and finishing of less then 1/32 thick stainless steel panels. The machine automatically loads and unloads the panels. Panels are welded, grinded, and polished automatically. This 6-axis robotics cell welds various size and shape panels and incorporates a robotic search function to compensate for the variances in parts size and shape from lot to lot. This self-teaching, self programming feature automatically programs the welding and finishing robots for new coordinates of the part.

Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new modular technology using 6-axis robots to load form, fill and seal equipment, trays, flow wrapping equipment, etc.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new modular flexible technology for loading food, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and/or consumer products into FFS ( Form Fill Seal ) Machines. This system takes product from bulk, provides vision inspection of the product, rejects defective products and automatically places it into the thermo-formed pockets of the web.

Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new centralized palletizing technology using 6-axis robots.
Rapid Development Services, Inc. developed new technology that allows operators to enter dimensions of box sizes into the touch screen display. The system automatically programs itself to palletize the new box size. This system is capable of handling box sizes from 6 x 6 x 10 to 16 x 16 x 24 inches. Even tall unstable boxes are palletized in multiple layers on a pallet. The boxed are securely help together through the transfer conveyors, and finally through shrink wrapping before being released to a fork lift operator. The robots end of arm tooling are capable of handling all size boxes, picking and placing slip sheets, and securing the pallets while being transferred through the system.
