The VMI INDIVION is VMI Care’s answer to the demands commonly seen in the pharmacy industry. Whether you run a Central Fill Pharmacy, a larger retail or hospital pharmacy, everywhere we see the same challenges: more items to pack, more services to deliver, stricter quality measures to satisfy, better data protection and stricter regulations. For the increasing number of high volume automated dose packaging hubs, a much higher level of efficiency is needed.
To cover these demands, many pharmacies have already automated their packaging process. However, the current pouch packaging machines are based on decades old technical principles, are not designed for really continuous and high volume production, hardly meet the increasing quality demands and result still in considerable unavoidable manual correction efforts, after automatic inspection.
The VMI engineers took up the challenge which resulted in the VMI INDIVION packaging system.
The VMI INDIVION produces daily dose pouch packs and can be seen as the heart of VMI’s high volume range of automated packaging solutions. The machine has an unrivalled capacity, producing up to 10,000 pouches per hour. The VMI INDIVION has an average dispensing accuracy better than 99.97% which is about 3 times more accurate than common pouch packaging machines in the market, while at the same time minimizing the risks of cross-contamination.
VMI has chosen a proven industrial robot for all canister handling in the VMI INDIVION which builds on VMI’s experience with other VMI machines in other markets. In the last few decades, robot technology has matured to very high levels of reliability and durability. VMI, as an innovative developer of process automation solutions, partners with all leading robot technology suppliers and is able to select the best, based on our experience, over many decades.
Canisters are stored and positioned on both the table and in the doors. The robot puts the smart canisters on the correct docking stations for release.
Below the table are 72 specially designed hoppers, collecting medication for each single pouch. The most commonly seen reason for process assembly errors is tablets that bounce into the wrong pouch, or they are damaged. To avoid all this, the maximum dropping height in the VMI INDIVION has been reduced to only 21 cm (8 inch).
The VMI INDIVION is easy accessible and can easily be operated by one single operator.
Single-dose, unit-dose, multi-dose, urgent orders, unexpected changes, produce to order, with the VMI INDIVION in combination with VMI PHARYS software, it all becomes an easy job.
