Test Application from TQC
Speed Leak Testing of Plastic Vials for the Medical Industry
TQC have developed a high speed,
indexing rotary table based, leak test machine for handling and
testing medical vials at 70 per minute.
The system incorporates multi-channel
leak test instruments, 10 banks of test modules and 2 display panels,
these allow the plastic parts to be tested 10 at a time.
The machine is fully automatic
and utilises step feeders for accepting bulk, random product from
a stillage, these two feeders transfer parts to an infeed mechanism
to orientate and feed the parts in a 5 x 2 matrix. The indexing
table has 4 positions, one for loading the parts, one for testing,
one for unloading and a final empty station. The unload system incorporates
dedicated tooling to allow the parts to be placed into pass, gross
leak fail or fine leak fail bins. A fail safe system is included
to ensure that there is no cross contamination of pass and fail
The system is PLC controlled
and interfaces to a PC for data logging.
