Oval motion machine: Platform for more complex assembly tasks with dosing process


Numerous processes can be integrated on the oval motion machine platform. In addition to device assembly with separate parts and the integrated inspection processes, the platform satisfies precise dosing tasks – especially for drug delivery devices or reservoir DPIs. The compact design makes it possible to easily apply various barrier concepts.

  • Aseptic, pharmaceutical GMP design; modular setup with a choice of different stations
  • Integrated film handling, punching and sealing
  • Labeling, marking and printing, including inspection system
  • Welding and hemming processes using thermal, laser and ultrasonic technology
  • Inspection processes such as leak tightness and flow inspections, plus pressure, force, weight and torque measurements up to overall functions testing
  • Fully automatic processing of different devices

Machine features

Tools such as vacs, grippers or tongs are used to handle components when assembling inhalers in DPI machines.

Parts handling

Components are automatically taken out using vacs, grippers or tongs and accurately transferred. This can be performed in a linear or swivel movement. To increase the output, these systems can be set up at multiple locations so as to perform loading and unloading tasks at the same time.

Liquid dosing is used in the Harro Höfliger pharmaceutical and medical production platforms.

Liquid dosing

Dosing systems for liquids are used in the form of modules in pharmaceutical and medical production platforms at Harro Höfliger. This way, custom project requirements can be tailored as needed. The systems can be variably adapted to the defined performance specifications.

During the final assembly of inhalers and pharmaceutical devices with liquid filling, what is important is that components are handled gently and joined reliably.

Final assembly

Joining technology is one of the basic processes for completing assembly groups. Highly precise processes and gentle handling are perquisites to ensuring that components are reliably joined. Inspection and measuring systems guarantee the highest possible quality, even at high speeds.

Barrier technology protects the product from contamination and the user from coming into contact with active ingredients.

Barrier technology

Compact machine design and detailed knowledge of all processes makes Harro Höfliger a specialist in containment and barrier systems that serve to protect both the operator and the product. For ideal accessibility, ergonomic studies are performed that simulate all processes and operating steps.
