Weiss Robotics and STÄUBLI Robotics at the Interphex in New York
Interphex is a major international trade fair and conference that brings together around 8,000 trade visitors from the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries at the Javits Center in New York City. The focus of the fair is on the development, production, packaging and distribution of pharmaceutical products. 450 exhibitors showed their latest developments. Together with STÄUBLI Robotics, Weiss Robotics presented its STERIGRIP 200 aseptic gripper for the new STERICLEAN+ hollow-wrist robot. This validated solution was specially developed for use in ultra-clean aseptic applications and, with the GMP Class A cleanliness certification, also meets the highest requirements of the pharmaceutical industry. With the integrated media routing from the robot foot to the gripper module and consistently pharmaceutical-grade materials, the solution on display represents a new benchmark in terms of hygienic design and is therefore particularly suitable for highly demanding applications in the fill/finish area of gene therapy products. "We were able to make many important contacts for ourselves and received consistently positive feedback on our STERIGRIP series," says Dr. Karsten Weiss. "Interphex offers an excellent framework for technical discussions with industry experts from the pharmaceutical and biotech industries".
