Automation of Life Science Equipment Manufacturing

The Corona pandemic created a huge demand for Covid testing equipment. To ramp up such a production volume can only be realized by the usage of automated production with machinery equipment. Also most of the components for lab analysis are produced in an automated manner along with the performance of lab analysis processes.

For the production of devices for blood analysis or for diagnosis of tissue samples as well as for the assembly of other medical devices automated processes increase both efficiency and reliability.

Process control in metalforming and stamping

In Metalworking a significant part of the products are realized by forming and stamping processes, especially for series applications. The monitoring technology for press control has achieved a remarkable progress within the last years.

Optimized cycle rates lead to increased productivity and output. At the same time, there is a rising risk of asset damage, especially if unexpected errors occur. Automated protection of the tools and dies helps to increase OEE. Sensors for process monitoring are key elements.
