  • Processing and handling of pharmaceuticals

    KUKA offers precise robotics for laboratory automation that are both safe and user-friendly. They increase efficiency and quality in the laboratory and at the same time ensure the safety of personnel.

    Robots for cleanroom and laboratory applications

  • Fast picking and sorting processes

    Robots enable precise, fast and accurate handling of pharmaceutical products, reduce human error and improve traceability.

    Precise robots for the high-speed range

  • Contamination-free handling and packaging

    Robots operate at high speeds, which increases the overall efficiency of packaging and filling processes. This feature is particularly useful in large-scale pharmaceutical production, where large quantities of products need to be processed uniformly in a short time. Uniformity is crucial to meet regulatory requirements and ensure product quality.

  • Production monitoring

    The level of automation and digitalization in laboratories is constantly increasing. This is solved by intelligent IoT platforms such as iiQoT, which enable technical monitoring of laboratory equipment and intelligent asset management.
