Project Description

RTS Life Science supply drug storage and handling systems to many of the worlds largest pharmaceutical companies

After securing a multi million pound project to design and build a rack storage system for Sanofi-Aventis, RTS approached 3D to develop a vial tray suitable for the application

Due to the arduous specification in terms of chemical resistance, environmental conditions and mechanical requirements we undertook an extensive materials study along with FEA, mould flow and accelerated mechanical life testing to determine the optimal materials

We then proceeded to design a modular tray system which gave the maximum vial density per tray using any combination of three different vial types, evaluated a number of potential tooling partners and produced all manufacturing data for our recommended supplier

The final design not only satifies all aspects of the specification but also provides the most cost effective tooling solution given the high complexity and tolerance requirements
