Staubli Robotics Continues to Support ATS Life Sciences Systems with Upcoming Robotic Syringe Assembly.

CAMBRIDGE, Ontario, Nov. 17, 2023 – The ATS Life Sciences Systems engineering team, leveraging the power of Staubli Robotics capabilities, has been selected to build a large-scale syringe assembly system in the eastern United States. The system will span from the molding systems to the end-of-line pack-out, resulting in a highly efficient and reliable system consistently delivering quality and performance.

The collaboration between ATS Life Sciences Systems (LSS) and Staubli Robotics combines the expertise of two industry leaders to deliver innovative solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of customers, in this case a 300 parts-per-minute, end-to-end syringe assembly system. The system is built on ATS LSS’ high-performance assembly platform and incorporates Staubli Robotics’ advanced technology, featuring eight Staubli robots employed in various operations, including mold unloading, siliconization, tip capping, and robust quality and visual inspections.

Olivier Cremoux leads the North American Sales and Marketing team for Staubli Pharma and Med Devices, based in Duncan, South Carolina. He states, “Staubli and ATS LSS have established a strategic partnership to develop high-end automation projects for the pharma and medical industry. While our companies have collaborated for years, creating state-of-the-art automated solutions for device manufacturing and drug compounding, we are reaching a new milestone with this great success.”
