Have You Had Your Vaccine Yet?

Alba Helps the COVID-19 Vaccine Reach Others

Most people are familiar with the phrase "Operation Warp Speed" — aimed to overcome the challenges of bringing the COVID-19 vaccination to the American people. This not only presented a challenge for researchers to develop the vaccine itself, but also to mass produce it and distribute it across the country.

In the push for rapid distribution, one of our system integrator partners asked us to provide several small-scale conveyor systems where empty pallets feed into a robotic cell to be palletized with small, empty, specialized vials inside cases. These palletized vials are then distributed to manufacturers who in turn, fill the vials with the vaccine.

Empty pallets are loaded on an Alba Chain Driven Live Roller (CDLR) conveyor. The Alba conveyor then transports the empty pallets inside a partitioned area to a palletizing robot. The robot then proceeds to palletize individual cases of these specialized vials until the pallet is full.

A 3-strand pop-up chain transfer then raises and transports the full pallet on to an Alba 3-strand drag chain conveyor where the pallet exits the partitioned robot cell through an opening protected by a light curtain. Full pallets are then removed from the conveyor by fork truck.

Alba provided conveyor enabling the safe and steady transportation of product in a rapid concept-to-build fashion which is used to help with the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine across the United States. Not only was this project important to Alba, but it would also help many hundreds of thousands of people across the country get their vaccinations faster.
