Pharmaceutical manufacturing and packaging automation

The pharmaceutical industry develops, manufactures, and distributes large quantities of medicinal drugs for veterinary and human treatment.

As a result, its high-quality products need to be labelled and packaged at speed while being handled delicately. Developments in tamper-proof and child-resistant packaging are critical for ensuring patient safety, while a growing need for serialisation is increasing the traceability of products through the supply chain.

Specialist support from Sewtec Automation

Sewtec Automation invents, designs, manufactures, and installs labelling and packaging lines for the pharmaceutical industry. Our systems can significantly enhance your Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), which boosts the production rate and quality of your processes.

Thanks to our experience with a range of pharmaceutical automation systems, we can develop a turnkey solution to meet any requirement. From blister packaging to pharmaceutical labelling, our aim is to automate your process in the best way possible.

Our in-house precision engineering capabilities allow you to benefit from that all-important peace of mind. We can help you to transform your manufacturing processes and continuously optimise your systems over their full lifespan.

We can help your business to adhere to the following standards:

  • TÜV SÜD validation
  • The Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) regulations enforced by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Our ergonomic, stainless steel machinery can also be supplied to meet the required ISO Cleanroom Classification.

Pharmaceutical manufacturing capabilities

We are fully committed to creating unique automation systems which perform a range of pharmaceutical packaging and labelling processes. Our commitment to manufacturing innovation ensures your packaging automation system helps you to get the very best from your production lines.

Product handling

The delicate handling of medicines and drugs designed for human consumption is crucial. Our product handling capabilities ensure packaged drugs and medicines can transition smoothly from one stage of the packaging process to the next.

Dose control

Our precise dose control capabilities ensure the correct volume of any given drug is processed at high speed. This can be applied to whichever type of dosage form your line produces, from blister packs to vials.

Secondary packaging

Our secondary packaging solutions carefully handle any packaged dosages and place them into a carton ready for distribution.

Case packing

Our specialist case packaging machinery can erect, seal, and fill cases of drugs or medicines at high speeds.

High-speed labelling

Pharmaceutical labelling is a critical segment of the manufacturing process. Our high-speed automated lines ensure your products are carefully and correctly labelled, and we have experience in creating solutions to apply tamper evident labelling on numerous parts of pharmaceutical products to enhance security.

Track and trace

Our track and trace systems are critical for ensuring your pharmaceutical product can be traced back to a specific link in the supply chain. The fast and accurate application of unique identifier codes aids the product return and recall process.

Product testing and inspection

The quality and safety of the pharmaceutical industry’s products is paramount. Our product testing and inspection lines are designed to ensure the utmost quality of every product that leaves your factory.

Research and Development (R&D)

Thanks to our in-house engineering expertise, we can advise on the suitability of your product’s design for process automation. From the type of packaging to its design, we will work with you to develop a product which is Design For Automation (DFA) ready.
