Fully Automated Valve Assembly Station for Medical

Mission Objectives

ASM has designed a special machine for assembling blood non-return valves for one of the world leaders in single-use medical equipment. The very high rate of assembly and testing required very meticulous development by our engineers and technicians, particularly for the valve itself, which is more difficult to handle because it is flexible (medical silicone). In order to meet our client's requirements, ASM used the latest high frequency Pick & Place modules to achieve a manufacturing frequency of 2400 parts per hour.


Technical characteristics of the automated assembly and test station:

  • Assembly of the 2 ABS parts and the medical silicone valve
  • Ultrasonic welding, flow test, tightness test and bag packaging
  • Pick & Place high speeds: 2400 pieces per hour
  • An independent position, with 2 hours autonomy
  • SIEMENS PLC with integrated web server, allowing remote access by the customer and ASM to facilitate maintenance


Since its creation in 1997, ASM has designed and installed more than 300 production machines, prototypes and pilot installations in France and abroad, of which here are some examples:
