Pharmaceutical Automation

Our projects include pharmaceutical automation systems. Intense competition, higher production requirements and a strict regulatory environment place pressure on pharma manufacturers to optimise production. The pharmaceutical industry is facing significant challenges. Speed to market is more important than ever to reach new emerging markets, to compete with generics, and to get the most out of products before their patents expire. Therefore, Pharmaceutical Automation is essential to remain competitive.

Achieve flexibility and optimised production and regulatory compliance with our pharmaceutical manufacturing automation, process control, and information solutions.

An example of one of our pharmaceutical automation projects was the auto-loading of devices carried out by a 6-axis robot that removes multiple receptacles from preloaded intrays and loads into our assembly system.  Devices are then weighed offline and then placed back into the machine. The next process involves filling the device with an accurate level of liquid by means of a servo-driven pump.

Following on from this, the devices are transferred once again to a second weigh station to ensure the correct level of fluid has been dispensed. The devices are then automatically screw-capped. Completed devices are then loaded onto an SP Automation & Robotics automatic labeling system, for 360° label wrap, with full serialisation label inspection for track and trace.


Quality control and packaging are among the most important automated processes in pharmaceuticals.
