"Safe and Fast Connections in Pharmaceutical Production"

Production facilities in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries need to provide a high degree of flexibility and ensure safe operation. Switzerland-based Rubitec AG specializes in developing and building sophisticated custom-designed containment systems for filling and emptying stations and relies on the high-quality CombiTac modular connection system from Stäubli.

Over 25 years ago, a family company from Switzerland called Rubitec AG began specializing in the development, design, and manufacture of custom products for chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing. The core of its product portfolio is the patented, one-of-a-kind SmartDock system for filling and emptying big bags and drums.

Different docking heads like endless liner systems and big bag/drum docking systems (SmartDock) in various sizes can be swapped in and out in just a few simple steps. To achieve this level of flexibility, Rubitec uses the CombiTac uniq modular connector system. In the setup used at Rubitec AG, the connector system combines power and pneumatic contacts in a robust grommet/surface-mount housing with a combination of IP65 and IP67 ingress protection, made from aluminum and with a clamp to keep the connection locked. This system ensures a quick, easy and safe connection between Rubitec’s SmartDock system and the control unit.

The high contact quality and minimal losses provided by the unique MULTILAM technology in the power contacts guarantees over 100,000 mating cycles to ensure long-lasting and uninterrupted operation of the filling or emptying system. The leak-free coupling in the pneumatic contacts ensures a tight, secure connection. Rubitec AG has been fan of the robustness and reliability of the CombiTac uniq modular connector system for many years, making this product an established component of the coupling design in their systems.
