Roche Capper/Decapper Tool

This project was a solution to an ergonomic and customer needs issue that Roche had with opening and closing their K-tubes. The manual process resulted in their customers experiencing repetitive use stress, which created the need for an automated tool for decapping and capping their K-tubes.

Our Task

Our team delivered a design solution for Roche which was both ergonomically complete and met the needs of their customers that included an end-to-end product development and manufacturing solution for Roche.
