The feeder is a genuine tool that accelerates repetitive processes. It relieves the team at the pharmacy from monotonous and non-value-adding activities. The feeder allows faster and safer storage on your Apostore dispensing robot (compatible with all models).
Fully automated storage
Thanks to its intelligent precision technology, the feeder separates drug packages of all common sizes and weights. It scans the barcodes and identifies each product, recognises the expiry date via OCR plain text reading and transfers the packages with their recorded data to the storage and retrieval system.
High degree of automation
Even during direct delivery processing, special packages and returns can be inserted into the roller storage system simultaneously. An interaction that preserves the high level of automation.
Feeder and machine work together and yet independently of each other. This achieves a high degree of speed, safety and performance.
At a width of only 0.45 m, it fits into narrow spaces.
Upgrading is quick and easy.
Just pour the content of the wholesale box into the feeder. This relieves your workforce a great deal.
Medication is reliably identified and transported to the storage and retrieval systems.
How the Feeder works and optimises your workflow
With the feeder you can store medication quickly and safely in your pharmacy dispensing system (A1000, A2000, A3000 or Cube+). While the fully automated storage processes direct delivery, special packages and returns can be inserted into the roller storage system simultaneously.
Each medication is individually separated and scanned before being safely identified and transported to the storage and retrieval machine. The relief at goods receipt is palpable for you and your team. By simply emptying the content of the wholesale box into the feeder, the amount of work is reduced. It is always possible to upgrade at any time. Due to its slim structure, the feeder also fits into machines with limited space.
