Autonomous robotics in Pharma manufacturing

Multiple initiatives

PM Group is involved in multiple robotics initiatives with universities, multinational manufacturers, international standards organisations and government bodies. The aim is to facilitate next generation pharma manufacturing.

Fully autonomous robot for environmmental monitoring in Pharma manufacturing facilities

Autonomous robotics for environmental monitoring in pharma cleanrooms

APEPS’ (formerly known as ‘Project Marvin’) aims to develop a fully autonomous robot for environmental monitoring in pharma manufacturing areas.  A proof of concept has been completed in partnership with University College Dublin (UCD), Novartis and Lonza. This concept could be adapted for process sample collection. 

Robots for fully automated QC labs in pharma manufacturing

Robots for fully automated QC labs

Lab automation has many considerations. These include movement, equipment, operation, storage and containment. Development of the lab’s digital footprint and standardisation are key to achieving high quality lab designs.

Project Arthur’ seeks to fully automate quality control labs with both mobile and static robots.

Automated robotics for materials and logistics in Life Science and bioprocess facilities

Material transport and logistics

Material transfer and logistics are two of the biggest challenges in facility design. Our solutions include smart facility architecture incorporating robotics and automation. These include using conveyor technology to enable the automation of single use bag processing in a production environment.

Project Karn’ is a collaboration between PM Group and Technical University Dublin (TU Dublin). It involves a robot's independent transfer through material air locks. The aim is to develop a self-sanitising material air lock.
