Industrial Automation For Pharmaceutical Production

Industrial automation has become increasingly important in pharmaceutical manufacturing in recent years. This is because automation can help improve efficiency, increase productivity, and reduce costs in the production process, what more could you want?

We can't pack pills for you, but we can provide you with the right technology for it that will not only keep your production going, but most likely improve it significantly.


Important Considerations link icon

Every week, the pharmaceutical industry produces millions of tablets, which must undergo harsh scrutiny before being packed and shipped to distributors. During this inspection, it is essential drug manufacturers ensure that the medication is packed in the right amount, with the exact chemical composition and weight, and into the appropriate containers. With drugs being such a potentially dangerous and influential product for the human body, you just can't risk human error in the production line - especially with the ideal automation readily available to eliminate this.

To streamline this process, many pharmaceutical packaging systems utilise automation technology to manage things like bottle orientation, capping, labelling, and collation systems. Alongside this, a supervisory system that monitors the operation at a higher level, checking for low hopper levels, fallen bottles, and low-level supplies will ensure your automation process runs smoothly at all times.

What Can I Achieve?

  • Shorten time to market
  • Higher productivity and efficiency
  • Increased innovation
  • Eliminates risk of human error
  • Ability to complete repetitive or difficult tasks
  • Greater control and consistency
  • Ability to create tailored medicines
  • Confidence in the production line

Inevitable Changes...

Without the use of automation and digital equipment, pharmaceutical companies like yours run the risk of falling behind and becoming potentially obsolete. This comes down to the inevitable advancements of technology and science - going hand in hand. Science is constantly improving and medicines are becoming more personalised to specific patient requirements, rather than a one-size fits all approach to similar conditions. This kind of production is not possible without the help of automation in the production process, and we can help you keep up.
