Robotics for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Three Considerations for Robot Deployment in Pharma Production
Pharmaceutical manufacturing’s roots can be traced back to the 15th century, where skilled practitioners worked tirelessly to create medicines in local apothecaries. Back then, processes were manual, requiring hours of labour to develop just one bottle of medicine. Unsurprisingly, today’s manufacturing practices are fast-paced in comparison. As pharmaceutical manufacturers invest
in automation to increase production, Nigel Smith at TM Robotics explains three factors manufacturers need to consider before deploying robots in their facilities.
