Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0001584A1] Tube handling line or machine with a filling station (12) arranged separately in relation to a closing unit (14). The closing unit comprises an endless conveyor with a rectilinear conveyor section (15). This is used in order, by means of a gripper (36) on a robot, to put filled tubes from a filling station, which is either stationary with a number of filling nozzles or continuously rotating, into tube holders on the rectilinear section of the endless conveyor. A second robot takes tubes positioned in rows in transport packages in a delivery station (10) and conveys these tubes onwards to the filling station.
