Automatisierung im Labor

Technology for the smart labs of the future

Moderne Labore gleichen in ihren Strukturen heute oftmals noch einer klassischen Manufaktur. Geräte und Prozesse sind nicht vernetzt, und die kostbare Probe wird meist händisch von den Mitarbeitern prozessiert. Lange Zeit reichte dieser Aufbau aus, um die Innovationskraft der Labore auszuschöpfen. Heutzutage generieren sie jedoch vielfach größere Datenmengen, denen das bekannte Vorbild nicht mehr gewachsen ist. more...

Automated Production of Pharmaceutical Rubber-Stoppers

Pharma Challenge

The challenge consited in providing a turnkey solution for the production pf pharmaceutical stoppers in injection molding machines in a controlled atmosphere. The goal of the fully automated solution with integrated robot for the stripping of the parts was to produce 240 million stoppers of a diameter of 13 mm per year. The injection-compression molding solution by REP consists in producing the stoppers on two fully automated CMS-type machines equiped with eight molds of 413 cavities. The solution enables the user to produce 41,880 parts/hour with a machine cycle of 71 sec. The automated system reduces waste and costs. more...

Automatical Control of the Mixing Process

Efficiency through Intelligence

The Mixcont technology utilizes mixing devices Mixer (+Mills) as a kind of soft Dynamic Analyzer during the time when the batch is being mixed. The properties of the compound such as Dispersion/Distribution/Viscosity (DDV) are estimated in real time by means of processing of signals like torque, rotor speed, temperatures, pressure, ram position and other from mixer and/or mills. more...
