JOT Automation Ltd.

JOT Automation, the global manufacturer of test and production solutions, has received significant new orders from medical device company, Tandem Diabetes Care Inc. JOT Automation will supply automated micro factory solutions over the next 18 months to San Diego, California.

The manufacturing solution developed for Tandem Diabetes Care is based on JOT Automation's robotic desktop assembly IDeA (Intelligent Desktop Automation) platform. JOT's novel solution is used in the assembly of the cartridges used with the t:slim® Insulin Pump.

The t:slim Insulin Pump is the first insulin pump with a touch screen, the footprint of a credit card and the look of a smart phone. Tandem Diabetes Care launched the t:slim Insulin Pump in 2012.
