myPak Solutions Automation Frequently Asked Questions
Here you will find some of the most frequently asked questions about our automation.
The Alpaca blister packing robot is supplied by Yuyama, a world leading manufacturer of robotic automation based in Osaka, Japan.
Pharmacy can expect to improve overall dose administration aid packing and dispensing efficiency by at least 50%, offering the choice to redeploy resources to build professional services or reduce resources where necessary.
Depending on the complexity of the individual patient packs, the Alpaca robot can produce anywhere from 25 – 40 complete packs per hour.
Due to the small footprint of the Alpaca blister packing robot [H1993 x W890 x D590 (mm)], as little as 4 square meters is all the space required for the total Alpaca dose administration work area.
How many canisters are supplied with the Alpaca, and what is the canister capacity of the Alpaca blister packing robot?
The team at myPak Solutions works with pharmacy to identify the top 120 packed medications, and supply 120 calibrated canisters to suit these medications.
The Alpaca blister packing robot has a 60-canister capacity. The Alpaca operator is trained how best to hot swap all Alpaca canisters enabling optimum production efficiency, while the robot is in operation.
A pharmacy packing around 50 packs weekly, where volume is growing organically making it difficult to manage (eg. stressed staff, near misses and error rates increasing) is precisely when automation should be seriously investigated.
Some current Alpaca automation customers started at a lower starting point, with the intention to aggressively scale their DAA business. This is common where staff and space restrictions limit the ability to grow.
Other Alpaca customers implemented at a higher starting point, where their goal was to improve overall operational and workflow efficiency aiming to reduce the DAA workspace and drive DAA volumes to new heights.
