        Development of Fully Automatic Ampoule Opener

The present invention is designed to deal with the phenomenon that medical and nursing personnel open the dissecting bottle in violation of the principle of aseptic operation and easily cut their hands in order to improve their work efficiency, and the purpose is to open the dissecting bottle more quickly, safely, efficiently and conveniently without contaminating the drug solution so that the personnel can dispense the drug.

The ampoule is sensed by a photo-sensitive switch, the operation of the device is safely controlled by a time-delay relay, and the high-speed movement of the lever is driven by an electromagnetic field to instantly break the neck of the ampoule to open the bottle. The device is suspended, the operator only needs to hold the ampoule bottle in one hand and place the neck on the slot, then the sensor switch will automatically sense and control the device to open the ampoule bottle, the interrupted part will fall into the recovery tank directly and the operator will aspirate the liquid. The opening process takes less than 2 seconds and can open 1~5 ampoules at one time without the influence of different sizes and capacities of ampoules, which is safe, fast and effective, and greatly improves the clinical work efficiency and meets the clinical requirements on the premise of not easily hurting the operator's hands.

The invention consists of a card slot, control assembly, drive assembly, sliding device, moving arm, moving rod and recovery device. The main technical indexes are: bottle-opening rate; bottle-breaking rate; unit processing capacity (unit: one); processing cycle (unit: second); maximum processing frequency (unit: unit/minute); contamination rate, etc. The device is small in size, simple in operation, high in efficiency, and practical in the domestic and foreign market. The device is small in size, simple in operation, high in efficiency, practical, in the design of domestic and foreign an dissecting bottle opener in the field of leading position. At present, this design has obtained the national patent certification.
