These capabilities are valued by leading medical devices and pharmaceuticals players including Alere, B. Braun, Bespak, Chiesi, Flex, Gan & Lee, GlaxoSmithKline, Molex, Novo Nordisk, Nypro, Pfizer, Phillips-Medisize, Sanofi Aventis, The Tech Group and Ypsomed.
Pharma and medical device assembly compliance
To meet the specific needs of the pharma and medtech industries, Mikron Automation ensures that its platforms comply in full with the latest certification standards from the pilot stage all the way through to final production.
The entire Mikron product family takes account of the special conditions governing clean room ISO 7 applications. All the basic hardware and software are validated to GAMP-5 and compliant with 21 CFR Part 11.
Mikron control systems combine highly capable and adaptable hardware platforms with a vast library of standardized processes to assure the quality, stability and reliability of the final assembly solution. Together, these ensure that Mikron assembly solutions can be configured to almost any assembly need.
Standardized processes include automated feeding from bowls, flexible or tray feeds, sensitive handling of glass, needles and other fragile items, a wide range of test capabilities including functionality, flow and leak, torque settings, needle tip, angle and length vision checks, occlusion, pull, quality, vision and X-Ray tests.
Mikron also provides modular stations that can be ‘slotted in’ to deliver micro-dosing (spotting), application of glues, greases, etc., as well as UV and thermal curing. Welding options include laser, resistance and ultrasonic.
Marking and printing modules can deliver hot foil marking, inkjet printing, labels, laser marking and pad printing.
Data management capabilities include data capture, line management, trace and track info and compilation of statistics.
Quality and Certification
Mikron Automation ensures all platforms fully comply with the latest pharmaceutical medical device certification standards right from the concept stage. All basic hardware and software platforms are validated to GAMP-5 and compliant with 21 CFR part 11, with specific emphasis on ergonomics and tool cleaning to ensure conformity with GMP standards.
The entire Mikron product family takes account of the special conditions governing clean room ISO 7 application.
