Objectives & Background:

  • A repeat customer approached FENN looking for a solution to increase their production of hypodermic needles for medical applications with the purchase of a new machine.
  • The customer was working with a manual feed swager, but realized their production volume, part consistency, and part quality were not meeting their expectations and specifications.
  • To meet production quotas, the customer decided to purchase a fully automated feed unit.
  • The customer required a swager with capabilities to run 23-27 (.025”-.016”) gauge hypodermic needles.

  • With the customer’s production requirements in mind, FENN designed a machine capable of producing higher amounts of hypodermic needles with more accuracy.
  • For maximum productivity and minimum changeover time, FENN designed this feeder with automatic feeding capabilities, collection bins, and an easy die changeover process.
  • The latest FENN software was implemented into a new B&R touch screen display for a user-friendly operator interface.

Value to Customer:

  • The customer received a new NF Automated Swager.
  • The machine increased the customer’s productivity, minimized operator involvement, and reduced downstream costs.
  • New production volume of up to 300 pcs/hour
