Precision, reliability, cleanability

Pharma offering

Dedicated industrial robots for each pharma grade environment

Our customers and leading pharmaceutical companies place trust in our solutions. This gives our engineers an advantage  when adapting our well-known range of robots dedicated to pharma production environments.

accessPharma

  • Cleanable with IPA
  • Designed for inspection and secondary packaging

Stericlean

  • Aseptic
  • Designed for RABs and freeze dryers
     

Stericlean+

  • Highly Aseptic
  • Designed for isolators

Our 30 years of experience in the pharmaceutical market have enabled Stäubli to develop the widest range of 4- and 6-axis Stericlean and cleanroom robots on the market to meet the multiple constraints of the pharma market. Robots have become more and more popular due to their flexibility and to trends in personalized medicine and small batch production.

Our pharma offering includes the Stericlean range for aseptic environments and the Stericlean+ range, which address the ever-increasing demands of the pharma sector by providing validated solutions that meet the highest hygiene and cleanliness standards.

A robot in the industry is defined according to payload, reach and speed. In pharma, a fourth factor is also considered, related to the production environment and cleaning processes used on equipment. Stäubli offers flexible solutions in these market-specific areas.

Pharma factory areas

A pharma factory is divided into several areas that require different specifications in terms of cleaning processes and particle emissions. Stäubli defines four levels of requirements, from the most restrictive, isolators in Grade A, subjected to aggressive  H₂O₂ cleaning, to logistics areas, intermediate levels of inspection, RABs, and secondary packaging, where equipment is cleaned with alcohol wipes.

Isolator - Grade A (ISO5)

  • Highly monitored fill/finish process lines of high potency and toxic drugs
  • Highest hygienic standards in design, material and components
  • Regular VHP cleaning

Stericlean+

A unique hygienic robot range for aseptic processes in pharma

To stay in line with the new requirements, Stäubli partnered with SKAN, the world leader in manufacturing isolator systems, and specialized in pharma and aseptic environments.

„Through our SKANalytix service, we provide our customers with analytical support for their questions and concerns around aseptic processing“ Gregor Hommes, Head of Research and Strategic Business Development at SKAN.

The Stericlean+ is easily integrated in pharma automation thanks to its complete documentation, which supports the pharmaceutical industry in qualification of the entire machine. Stäubli offers a full range of validated robots including the documentation package required to ensure compatibility, safety and consistency and ease final acceptance of the entire machine.

Aligned with new regulations

FDA compliant materials

Improved hygienic design

Higher cleaning performance

Decontamination processes are key within the pharmaceutical sector, especially within an isolator environment. Stäubli and SKAN’s collaboration has resulted in the development of new features for the Stericlean+ package that ensure that the robots are suitable for aseptic manufacturing conditions.

Testing resulted in two major benefits. For Stäubli, greater progress in R&D design, and for clients, greater transparency about robot performance.
