The Pharmaceutical Industry is booming, with a £42.7 billion wholesale turnover in 2017 and the number of pharma goods wholesalers in the UK increasing to 2,754. So, it’s no wonder that more and more manufacturers are opting for automation to meet consumer demands.
Why Choose Automation?
The Pharmaceutical Industry produces millions of products each year, all of which must be carefully scrutinised. Automated machinery, including capping and labelling machines, can significantly speed up the production process and boost efficiency.
Batches of pharmaceuticals can be made to their exact specifications when using automation, eliminating any waste material and, in turn, cutting costs.
Manufacturers also see a return-on-income in the form of energy saved, higher speed production and increased quality/consistency of products. In addition to this, machinery can be designed with intelligent feedback and fault-finding features to ensure that only the highest quality products are distributed.
Using automation to manufacture pharmaceuticals eliminates the risk of human error, meaning that the process of getting a brand new drug to market speeds up, therefore maintaining a company’s competitiveness.
While automated machinery was once viewed as expensive and out-of-reach, it has since become much more accessible to SME’s and has become more prominent within the pharmaceutical industry.
