That the correct dosage in medicine makes all the difference between a healing remedy and a deadly poison has been common scientific knowledge ever since the discoveries made by the mediaeval physician Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, commonly known as Paracelsus. Consequently, precise dosing aids are important tools in pharmacy. The Upper Austrian company Kunststoffwerk Kremsmünster (KWK) has specialized increasingly in this market segment during its more than 60 years of existence. It supplies a wide range of dosage systems. To step up its dosage spoon production, KWK chose the all-electric injection molding technology from WITTMANN BATTENFELD. The production cell, consisting of an EcoPower 110/35 injection molding machine, two W832 linear robots from Wittmann and an automatic packaging station, has impressively demonstrated its efficiency during its first year in production by churning out more than 30 million dosage spoons.
“When all concepts and quotes were on the table ready for decision-making ... The very compact equipment layout as well as the individual detail solutions tipped the balance in their favor.”
