High-precision gantry for 3D printing in automated pharmaceutical production

This XYZ positioning system is suitable for modular set-up and expansion of automated production lines in the pharmaceutical industry.

The customer-specific print head on Z-axis moves extremely fast with up to 1000 mm/s over the carriers in the range of 300 x 200 mm. It is flexibly adaptable to different manufacturing technologies such as layer build-up, printing of microparticles or manufacturing by jets and much more. With sub-micron precision, you can print the spatial structure of a drug with high accuracy for immediate or delayed drug formulation and produce other customized combination preparations.

 

Ideal for flexible and automated 24/7 production

  • Ideal for 3D printing of extended-release tablets, polypills and combination products
  • Two Z-axes for integration of two processes simultaneously for a second print head or for sensors for quality control
  • High throughput due travels of 300 x 200 x 100 mm, expandable to 600 x 600 x 100 mm
  • Extremely high repeatability up to 0.4 µm for 3D printing
  • Clean room compatible with long lifetime and long maintenance intervals
  • Flexible set-up and expansion of production lines due to easy integration into cycle lines and a modular baying of multiple gantries

Optionally expandable:

  • Expansion with up to five powerful, secondary Z-axes for the integration of additional print heads, cameras or sensors
  • Inline inspection for quality assurance with additional sensors and cameras via the aluminum probehind the Z axis
  • Adaptation of the travels for the production space
  • Safety cabinet
  • Base plate made of granite or aluminum
  • Customer-specific adaptation of the printing process
  • Immediate use with pre-configured controller incl. exemplary software

    Reliable standard components with modern safety, documentation and control concepts

    The positioning system consists of the reliable linear stages of the PLT family, high-precision linear measuring systems and a modern motion control architecture. For decades, these components have met all requirements for accuracy and process reliability in different series.

    For documentation purposes, which are urgently required with the sensitive end product, the system is capable of logging, storing and outputting all operating and control parameters in real time with reference to the batch.

    This positioning system complies with the safety concept according to Performance Level e.
