The current practices in the industry of Prefilled syringes employs a manual transfer of filled Syringes from filling unit to syringe and therefore is a cumbersome practice, time consuming, and due to the involvement of the human element is a unhygienic practice. These limitations have serious repercussions on the use of the medicine and in delivering the right amount of dosage of medicine to the patient. It is to be noted that right amount of the medicine to the patient is a very important aspect as it effects the patient’s life. Therefore there is an important need to automate the process of the syringe filling and sealing as well transfer from filling unit to the syringe unit wherein multiple syringe can be simultaneously be filled and packaged into a clean and hygienic medical device. This Dissertation brings about the details of the Design and development of prefilled syringe filling and stoppering Machine then automate the process of filling by using a programmable logic controlled. This works also highlight the development of 3D Computer Aided Model and stress analysis of few components included in the PFS system.
