Festo as a partner for end product manufacturers
The challenge in pharmaceutical production is to devise highly flexible production plants that can be rapidly adapted to different products and capacities. Festo supplies assemblies and systems for modular and scalable plants.
Drug production is divided into two main production steps:
Active ingredient production - either precision chemistry with relatively low hygiene requirements or biotechnology with high hygiene requirements.
Production of the actual form - normally with high hygiene requirements.
Festo supplies the appropriate products and solutions for both sterile and non-sterile production.
Process with high speeds
There are different levels of hygienic requirements for filling and packaging depending on the drug and the form of dispensing. Nevertheless, they almost always require
corrosion resistant materials
and hygienic design.
High speed defines these process steps. These technological challenges are far from new for Festo.
