Case study: How to maximise performance and productivity of existing pharmaceutical sterilisation lines?
New trends in automation and process control for sterilisation systems by integrating robotised loading and unloading technology.
Increasingly the pharmaceutical industry is challenged to increase the OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) of their manufacturing process. The sterilisation lines for parenteral products are no exceptions.
What are the latest trends in automation and process control in pharmaceutical sterilisation process? The implementation of new integrated solutions for sterilisation process equipment integrating robotic and automated loading and unloading technology is proven to offer significant increase in performance and productivity, in addition to helping reduce operational costs, increasing savings in multiple connected machines covering a whole operational phases.
This article provides the main aspects to respond to the new trends while describing the retrofitting in an IV Bags sterilisation line, in order to maximises its OEE and make it ready for the technological opportunities of industry 4.0.
