MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY & DIAGNOSTICS
Secure sealing guaranteed
Nowhere is fail-proof sealing more vital than in the medical and pharmaceutical fields and in laboratories.
In medical technology manufacturing and laboratories, Relco automation has fundamentally changed the workflow. In smaller labs, automating the more mundane processes has improved quality and reduced labour.
State-of-the-art capless induction sealing technology prevents tampering, hygiene-risks and shelf-life and contamination issues.
Relco’s induction sealers hermetically seal multi-well plates, PCR tubes, diagnostic and sampling tools. It also means that sealed containers can be as small as a few millimetres in diameter, and made of glass, plastic or metal.
Capless sealing provides cost-effective technology for preserving sterility inside containers, prevents leaks and contamination and enables simple container design without the need for threads and caps. The contents can be accessed by piercing with a needle or peeling back the seal, depending on materials and process.
THE BENEFITS OF WORKING RELCO
IT IS WHY OUR CLIENTS STAY OUR CLIENTS
Instant energy, so no waiting for equipment to heat up before starting. As it is more reliable, it provides greater up-time/line availability, so higher productivity and lower maintenance/downtime costs.
Using our cut and place technology, we treat each seal individually. Our system also means we can handle and cut the foil incredibly accurately. Delivering the highest quality seals possible.
Not only does our technology seal millions of products across the world on a daily basis, but we’ve also developed digital technology that lets us monitor the process and measure quality, seal-to-seal, in real time.
As the head is at ambient temperature we can hold the head down under pressure after the heating cycle has finished to allow the seal to cool/cure whilst still holding the foil in place.
As the heat is generated from within the foil itself by means of the electro-magnetic field we can reach sealing temperature normally within a few hundred milliseconds.
Some of the medical technology and diagnostic companies we have partnered with
"Relco reliability is second to none. Working with Mark and the Relco team means you know you’re going to find the best solution."
Jesse Lehga, VP
Diagnostics for the Real World
“ Our experience partnering on our automation projects with Relco and the use of their induction sealing head technology has been world class. The technical support and product performance and reliability is truly exceptional”
Sam Alarcon, VP
Jewett Automation, Richmond Virginia
"Relco's experience with induction sealing has greatly reduced our timeline to develop and release new processes. We were very pleased with the level of involvement from the outset; beginning with understanding our needs during the initial phases, and offering continued support for the project through qualification, and scaling our production volumes."
Ben Allen, Sr. MFG Engineer
"Relco was very supportive of our foil sealing to glass projects. Not only does Relco have the best induction sealing equipment on the market for glass containers but the support offered during testing was key to getting this new technology to work."
Brian Brozell, Technical Lead – R&D
“3P have been working together with Relco over the last 7 years on a range of induction sealing applications. We have always found Relco to be helpful, flexible and accommodating. The quality of the seals is always excellent and we would have no hesitation working with them again in future.”
