The Filter Assembly Cell, as highlighted in the 3 dimensional sketch, shows an example of A2Z’s built-to-purpose Automatic Assembly Cell, which is used to manufacture medical filters. In this case, the customer came to A2Z with a mandate to produce the filter with minimum human contact, as well as throughput of 40 filters per minute. The product was required to be processed in a controlled environment since the product was used in a medical application and the media could not be exposed to any contaminants.
A2Z Filtration’s team worked with the customer to develop an acceptable concept. This involved study of the customer processes, input specifications, capacity, changeover requirements and automation needs.
A2Z Filtration’s design team worked closely with the customer and other stake holders to build a complete production line. From the start of the project until the installation at the customer’s end and the validation trials, the project took six months to complete. During this time, there were certain design changes, as well as the addition of processes to meet the sensitive nature of the product.
A2Z engineered an acceptable solution and provided a fit-to-purpose fully automated production line.
