Assembly and packaging of cryogas cartridges
The CryoPen is considered to be an innovative alternative to the scalpel in the removal of skin blemishes. To meet increasing global demand for gas cartridges to be used with the CryoPen, the manufacturer has opted for a pioneering automated solution, in which two Stäubli robots operate in tandem.
CryoPen from H&O Equipment’s offers dermatologists a patient-friendly treatment. Stringent quality standards apply in the production and packaging of the cartridges.
Each cartridge has a tiny outlet with a diameter of around four millimeters, which opens the cartridge in a controlled manner as it is screwed into the CryoPen and is also equipped with a filter.
The cartridges are produced in large quantities and therefore, H&O set out at an early stage to automate the assembly of the filter and the packaging of the cartridges.
