The MicroFactory

Revolutionize your production!

Unleash the power of modular Robotics for next-level manufacturing automation.


The philosophy behind the MicroFactory is to break down complex production systems into dedicated processes per module.

On each module a specific process can be replicated to meet our customers’ specific requirements.

Think in processes, not products.

Not sure where your product portfolio is heading? No problem, our automation platform is process oriented, not product oriented.

Different products have similar manufacturing processes in common. Use one MicroFactory process module for various products and save money.

Automate step-by-step.

Not ready to invest in an entire production line? Start with one process module for a specific manufacturing process.

Gradually add automation to your production when needed.

Stay human – sometimes.

Don’t want to hand over certain production processes from your employees?

Easily integrate manual workstations into a MicroFactory production line at any time. If required, our individual modules are also 100% collaborative.

Reconfigurable by default.

Do you want to be able to adapt your production processes in the future?

Thanks to its modular architecture, the MicroFactory can be reconfigured at any time. Replace individual process modules easily with new modules to meet your new production requirements.

Just plug in the new module and you are ready to go!

Service without downtime.

Does your entire production grind to a halt when individual processes fail? It doesn't have to be that way!

MicroFactory modules can be easily removed from the line for service and replaced with a manual workstation during the service period, ensuring very high system availability.

Batch size "1"

Designed to meet the challenges of high mix/low volume production, the MicroFactory can produce very small batch sizes, starting at one piece.

Instant one-button set up

Constant setup reduces your system availability? Our MicroFactory modules set up completely autonomously and instantly at the push of a button. Produce seamlessly and save time!

Spare parts on demand

Save space and money! No need to stock spare parts. Our standardized module components will be delivered to you within 24 hours.


Real businesses,
real results.

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.

Engeser GmbH

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.

High Mix | Low Volume - Medical Device Assembly

Discover our scalable MicroFactory solution for syringe and PEN assembly in variable batch sizes as well as high format variance without setup operations.

Autonomous commissioning.

Do you need short delivery times and fast commissioning?

All modules are tested and fully commissioned with our mobile commissioning station. When the modules are delivered to your site, all you have to do is plug in and start producing.

No on-site assembly. Very short commissioning times due to a high level of standardization.

Full control at all times

The Process Control Center (PCC) is the command center of your MicroFactory and bundles all relevant data in one central location.

  • Data visualization: Extensive data and process visualisation as well as the possibility to create your own dashboards.
  • Central recipe management: Manage all recipes via a central recipe database and quickly activate & prepare products.
  • Coordination: The Process Control Center coordinates the overall production flow and ensures 100% good parts.
  • MES connection: Central interface to your production planning systems.

The beauty of production data.

Want to gain visibility into your production data?

With the performance dashboard of the Process Control Center (PCC), you can monitor all process modules in real time and visualize relevant data in one central location.

You have full visibility into your production data at all times.

Camera assisted Line Clearance.

Need to make sure the line is clear of parts before and after producing a batch? Well, more eye pairs are better than one.

Our modules use intelligent camera technology to automatically perform a line clearance check after each batch production and notify you of a positive result.

How does it work? - The magic behind our automation platform.

It all starts with the BASE for each process module. Highly standardized and yet able to fully support all your specific requirements for your individual process.

Introducing the BASE.

Everything you need to successfully automate your process in one place, with the option of combining robots, safety technology, camera technology, material supply, etc. according to your needs on a modular basis.

Smart conveyor technology.

Transform your production line with our cutting-edge, FDA-certified smart conveyor system.

It connects multiple process modules to form a MicroFactory, featuring a flexible workpiece carrier for numerous products and an easy plug-and-produce connection for quick integration.

Perfect for industries demanding high hygiene standards and efficiency.

GMP and GAMP Services.

We adhere to GMP and GAMP guidelines and provide comprehensive documentation, validation, and qualification.

Our services include traceability matrix, risk analysis, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), design documentation, qualification, CE conformity assessment, audit trails, change control, training documentation, internal audits, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), deviation management, and data integrity to ensure full compliance and customer satisfaction.
