Stäubli Robotics Supports ATS Life Sciences Systems with Robotic Syringe Assembly

ATS Life Sciences Systems and Stäubli Robotics collaborate to develop a multi-million-dollar end-to-end syringe manufacturing system

The ATS Life Sciences Systems engineering team, leveraging the power of Stäubli Robotics capabilities, has been selected to build a large-scale syringe assembly system in the eastern United States. The system will span from the molding systems to the end-of-line pack-out, resulting in a highly efficient and reliable system consistently delivering quality and performance.


The collaboration between ATS Life Sciences Systems (LSS) and Stäubli Robotics combines the expertise of two industry leaders to deliver innovative solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of customers, in this case a 300 parts-per-minute, end-to-end syringe assembly system. The system is built on ATS LSS' high-performance assembly platform and incorporates Stäubli Robotics' advanced technology, featuring eight Stäubli robots employed in various operations, including mold unloading, siliconization, tip capping, and robust quality and visual inspections.
