Roth Werkzeugbau – Working for the pharmaceutical and medical industry

ROTH MEDICAL – INTELLIGENT SOLUTIONS FOR PHARMACEUTICAL AND MEDICAL PACKAGING

The world’s population is not only rising steadily; it is also ageing. By 2050, it will number about 10 billion people, many of whom will be living in countries with no access to medical care in well-equipped hospitals. And in industrialised countries in particular, life expectancy is also rising. It is self-evident that these trends will lead to an increase in the global need for medical and pharmaceutical disposables for self-medication. The manufacture of packaging for such products faces particular challenges if it is to meet strict hygiene requirements. Roth Medical combines the expertise of an experienced toolmaker with the ability to meet the specific manufacturing demands of the medical sector, and can supply you with sophisticated solutions for medical and pharmaceutical packaging equipment.

What makes us stand out from the crowd? Our excellent standards of toolmaking.

Growing demands are being placed on the productivity of manufacturers of packaging for medical disposables. Our product developers and toolmakers are well acquainted with the specific challenges associated with this specialised packaging market, the greater expense involved in risk assessment, and the special requirements to be met in terms of equipment maintenance and inspection, cleaning and storage. The modern, fully-automated planning and production processes and the intelligent manufacturing sequences implemented by Roth Medical ensure high shot numbers, excellent dimensional accuracy, and extremely low cycle times, even for the manufacture of high-cavity moulds.

The long life of our equipment demonstrates that our solutions for the manufacture of technical parts and packaging are not only efficient and sophisticated, but also designed for the long term. The equipment of our customers is tested, run in, and brought to series-production readiness at our in-house technical centre. It goes without saying that our service team will be happy to provide the assistance you require, even after your equipment is up and running.
