Aseptic Smart will demonstrate a novel fully robotized, multifunctional pharmaceutical filling line with capabilities of processing several container types (vials, syringes, cartridges, ampoules, etc.) and thus bringing the sector to the fore of Industry 4.0 revolution, which is the future of manufacturing in Europe. The technology enables fast changeovers thus providing manufacturing flexibility and agility critical in processing smaller batches of more personalized injectable medicines.
Robots eliminate the need for human intervention in aseptic area and thus solve two traditional challenges within the pharma industry: sterility assurance and contamination risk reduction.
Machines have a modular design which allows cheaper and faster scaling out through addition of more modules where production increase is required and reduces technology transfer costs. The technology has the following additional advantages: lower operational costs – less parts – reduced maintenance costs and energy consumption – compactness – increased process repeatability
