The result is very satisfying! We were able to save about 75% of the costs. Without this measure, we would have had to relocate or even lost the products.
At Roche, we were looking for a modular, flexible solution for assembling different devices and found this solution in ESSERT´s automation platform. The collaboration with ESSERT was characterized by a high level of innovation and the willingness to adapt to the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry.
Drug Product Manufacturing Network Technology Lead at Roche
ESSERT’s standardized robotics platform guarantees fast availability and makes it more cost-effective than classic special solutions.
The robot workstation impresses with its flexibility, scalability and integration of state-of-the-art camera technologies.
Department manager for plant and site development at Vetter
Thanks to specially developed algorithms, transparent and reflective objects such as glass or plastic bodies can also be reliably detected in addition to plastics, metals and sheet metal.
Flexible Feeding Module
Components can be easily and flexibly separated by vibration and thus gripped by the robot; in addition, a choice can be made for illumination between transmitted light, incident light or side light.
Tray Stacker Module
Tray Stacker for maximum autonomy in minimum installation space. The tray Stacker is fully integrative and parameterisable via the user tablet. Maximum tray dimensions: 600mm x 400mm
The drawer system is ideal for all products that cannot be organized in trays or boxes. The inlays of the drawers can be custom-made and product-specific.
Integration of inline labellers including optional label inspection. The labels can be applied flat or to round bodies. Flexible interfaces for print data exchange are also available.
The Tray Module provides space for 600mm x 400mm trays and allows components to be placed or picked by a robot.
Engraving of components or assemblies using CO2, UV or fiber lasers.
Various assembly modules such as O-ring assembly stations, individually designed, manufactured and commissioned according to requirements.

What is robotic process automation in the general and pharma industry?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in the general, but also in the pharmaceutical industry refers to the use of robots or bots to automate various repetitive and rule-based tasks and processes within companies. RPA technology allows these tasks to be performed automatically and accurately, reducing the need for human intervention and potential errors.
The biopharma industry has been slow to adopt digital technologies like AI, despite demographic shifts pushing for more automation. Decentralized production and personalized medicine further emphasize the need for such solutions. ESSERT Robotics stands out, offering specialized automation for these...
High Mix / Low Volume (HMLV) manufacturing meets the growing customization needs in industries like life sciences. ESSERT Robotics offers solutions for diverse industries, especially in low volume medical device assembly.
High Mix / Low Volume is an increasingly prominent production approach in the pharmaceutical sector. This correlates with the rise of advanced therapies that are custom-made for a small group of individuals – or even one single patient.
With the manufacturing world moving towards more personalized products and unique market segments, LVM is gaining significant traction. Industries ranging from electronics to life sciences have decided for LVM to successfully supply their unique clientele.
