Accelerating Manufacturing Efficiency
As the use of the robotics in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry increases rapidly, it’s important to consider the benefits of the latest technologies for manufacturers, researchers and scientists. The advantages include greater speed and accuracy, more flexibility and more reliability and driven by the need to waste less time and money, pharmaceutical manufacturers are trying to find new ways to maximize throughput and increase efficiency.

What the pharma industry is learning – is that automated solutions and robotics support much more than just increased productivity. These technologies pave the way for smoother good manufacturing practice (GMP) compliance and operational excellence. They improve product safety and subsequently, patient safety.

It has also been forecast that 44% of pharmaceutical companies have implemented or are in the process of automating operations this year and whereas the majority of quality control measures were once done manually, automated systems have now been implemented to help eliminate errors.

With this is mind, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Automation event, 18th and 19th May 2021 will focus on how automation has been transforming the pharmaceutical industry.
