Robotized special machines for the pharmaceutical industry

Special machines meet the specific needs of testing, inspecting, manufacturing and packaging of the pharmaceutical and medical sectors. Robotisation and automation secure their complex production processes, by guaranteeing product quality and limiting the risk of contamination.

To meet the requirements of the pharmaceutical and medical industries, our special machines are designed for production in aseptic environments and clean rooms. More globally, our experience in this industry has taught us to work with its various constraints.

EEPI R-MAC : robotized cells for autonomous controls of syringes

Our robotized cells have the function of carrying out autonomous quality controls on batches of syringes during production, at the end of production, in laboratory…


Main characteristics:

  • Machine, products and controls can be customised
  • Plug & play
  • Compact and mobile cells, that can be integrated in any production area

Tests and controls that can be proposed:

  • Measurement of the total length of the syringe
  • Gliding force measurement
  • Needle pull off force measurement
  • Needle penetration force measurement
  • Checking the position of the plunger in the syringe
  • Measurement of the piston seal lift-off and the force at the bottom of the syringe
  • Control of the syringe needle angle
  • Placing of pistons

Some of EEPI Robotics realisations
in the pharmaceutical industry

ROBOTIZED CELL FOR BAGS’ STERILISATION

The function of this installation is to load bags coming from a filler, onto trays for sterilisation. After sterilisation, it unloads the bags onto a conveyor that directs them to the visual inspection or picking area. The gripping system is very complex and can handle several bags simultaneously, even if they are at high temperatures, without deforming them.

ROBOTIZED CELL FOR FLASKS’ STERILISATION

We designed this installation to load flasks of various sizes on trays from the filler to an autoclave. After sterilisation, the flasks are unloaded from the autoclave, checked for compliance and then palletised for distribution.

ROBOTIZED INSTALLATION FOR TRANSFER OF FLAKS TO FREEZE-DRYER

This installation was designed for a clean room. It has the function of loading full flasks onto trays that will be transferred to freeze-dryers. It consists of two robots with different gripping systems and functions, working together.

ROBOTIZED CELL FOR TUBS CONTAINERS PALLETISING

The tubs are firstly filled and then palletised at the end of the line. Thanks to an identification and tracking system, the conforming tubs are placed in containers and the non-conforming ones are evacuated.
