Assembly and Packaging automation systems in the Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Industry

Get in touch

Custom automation systems play a crucial role in pharmaceutical assembly and packaging operations. They orchestrate the assembly of intricate drug delivery devices such as inhalers, pens, and syringes. Every click and snap ensures a perfect fit for a product that works flawlessly.

These systems handle tasks ranging from filling and sealing blister packs to labelling bottles and cartons, all tailored to meet the specific requirements of different pharmaceutical products. 

  • Robotic systems are increasingly deployed for repetitive and precise tasks like pick-and-place, assembly, and material handling, enhancing efficiency and mitigating human error.
  • Vision inspection systems are employed for inspection and quality control, automatically detecting and rejecting defective items, ensuring compliance with global regulatory requirements. 
  • Automated Feeding and handling solutions, including bowl feeders, conveyors, accumulation systems, streamline the flow of products and work-in-progress, minimising human interventions. 

RNA Automation work closely with pharmaceuticals manufacturers to cater to their specific needs, ultimately leading to faster delivery of high-quality health care and pharmaceutical products to the market.

What our clients say

“RNA have proved on multiple occasions that they design and quote brilliant machines. I’ve visited the RNA site and seen for myself the level of detail and quality they work to, which I can’t say for the majority of other suppliers I’ve been to.

RNA has been a great company to work with. They have helped develop an idea into a reality with our latest machine, which has been successful. Their communication has been good throughout the project, and their employees have been knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful.

In light of the recent project, I would recommend RNA to other businesses, and we will hopefully be using them again for future automation projects within the business.”
