Back on Friday, October 31st, we (along with our new sister team 9541) visited the Aptar Congers site. At this plant, pharmaceutical devices, such as pumps, are manufactured.
This was a very interesting tour for us because we not only got to see how things are made through the injection molding process, but what they are made with. We were able to learn about the robotics employed in transferring and sorting products.
We all enjoyed the trip and are very glad to have gotten to see a real-world application of robotics. Also, it was pretty neat to be able to visit the only Aptar Pharma site in America, and have it be only a short ride away!
