Hybrid requirements - Solutions from Festo
The biotechnology / pharmaceutical sector is a classic hybrid sector in terms of its automation requirements.
Applications for linear drives and handling systems in conventional factory automation applications:
- Research and product development
- Application (base material preparation, dispensing)
- Downstream material synthesis
- Filling and packaging
Applications for automated process valves for controlling and regulating fluid flows in process automation:
- Production (batch mode or continuous)
- Material synthesis
- Actual pharmaceutical production and galenics
For biotechnology/pharmaceuticals and the associated segments such as cosmetics, food additives, cleaning agents and pesticides, there are special requirements in terms of production hygiene. So-called GMP recommendations (=Good Manufacturing Practices) oblige plant operators to comply with certain standards. It goes without saying that Festo products and solutions meet all GMP requirements.
