The IMSTec End of Line Buffer (ELB) and Rework Station is a subset of a fully automated production line for packaging orthopaedic parts. The End of Line Buffer and Rework Station provides a controlled waiting area for finished products that could form part of an incomplete batch awaiting reunification of re-worked packaged parts. The End of Line Buffer loads and unloads packages via a 3-axis servo motor driven rack handling system. The buffer rack can store up to 200 parts. A conveyor moves the parts onto carrier from the load position through the ELB and to the unload position.
