The Future of Manufacturing at Hannover Messe

Critical Manufacturing is helping high-tech manufacturing companies optimize efficiency, enhance quality, reduce costs and make their businesses more agile with its ground-breaking Manufacturing Execution System (MES). It will be showcasing the enormous capability of this modern, Industry 4.0 ready, modular system at this year’s Hannover Messe from 1st to 5th April.

Critical Manufacturing MES has been designed for complex discrete industries including electronics, semiconductor and medical devices. Based on de-centralized logic, it enables the move to dynamic production models, where smart products and materials negotiate with intelligent machines to find the most efficient and economical route through the shop floor. The MES uses a breakthrough equipment integration and automation module, “Connect IoT” which simplifies the integration of all devices, equipment and the Internet of Things (IoT) and dramatically reduces the time and cost needed for companies to reap the tremendous benefits of smart technologies and Industry 4.0 manufacturing models.

The mission of Connect IoT is to dramatically reduce the time and effort to implement equipment or IoT integration. It reaches across all types of devices to create the Industry 4.0 decentralized autonomous shop floor marketplace. It’s a lightweight, low footprint solution to connect older, legacy equipment or new devices, any protocol.

Beyond that, Connect IoT has a single graphical view of all automation workflows. Engineers can create and update complex logic with no code required in an intuitive fashion. The system also allows visual debugging without external simulators. Once the power user develops a workflow, it’s reusable

The Connect IoT module is an exciting piece of forward-looking engineering. It enables easy integration of new and legacy equipment and devices to create a distributed, de-centralized architecture on which to build an autonomous production network using a drag-and-drop logic interface. Accommodating new and older technology, it provides a clear, straightforward pathway for companies to move towards Industry 4.0 at a pace that suits their business strategy. The module is intelligent, automatically abstracting workflow elements with specific drivers, and requires no coding to set up.

The Critical Manufacturing MES also incorporates digital twin technology to provide clear plant visualization, including detailed information on equipment, product and process key performance indicators (KPIs). At an execution level, this digital twin helps better utilize the huge amounts of data available from a smart shop floor to help increase operating efficiency and maximize the potential of assets.

The MES enables the easy creation of 3D models of the shop floor and can deliver further benefits to users through its virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) capability.

Clean room workplace CleanBoy®

SPETEC GmbH in Erding is presenting a new product in the field of clean room technology. With CleanBoy®, users can achieve highly efficient clean room conditions at any workplace at little investment cost.

The need for extremely clean conditions is becoming ever more important in research and production as well as during service operations. The aim of clean room technology is to remove particles of a diameter of 0.12 µm or larger from a defined space in which the most exacting cleanliness standards guarantee a reliable workflow. This can be achieved using a clean room module from the SuSi® (Super Silent) series which is positioned directly above the work area. Exceptionally pure, filtered air is then passed over the work area. While the normal indoor atmosphere contains somewhere between 9,000 and 15,000 particles per liter, the use of clean room technology reduces this to a mere 3 particles per liter.

Parts or components produced in the mechanical engineering, electronics, optoelectronics, medical or biotechnology industries can be assembled or stored with exceptional reliability. A mobile, wheel-mounted version of the CleanBoy® makes it possible to transport the unit to different locations within the company. It is also possible to adapt the dimensions to meet the requirements of problematic workplaces.

The use of the CleanBoy® in large walk-in spaces results in a defined area in which practically no more particles can be detected. The unit is available in table-top and floor-standing versions. It requires no installation work and is ready for use immediately after delivery.

Medical Cannabis Products: How Much Really Gets There?

More and more companies and entrepreneurs operating in the field of Cannabis realize that while the market for ‘flowers’ and ‘extracts’ is significant (and likely to grow), the true ‘holy grail’ lies in the area of cannabis-based therapies.

Among the many questions faced by any company developing a new drug, probably the most complicated are those related to the behavior of their drug in the human body. This is the field of ADME: Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism and Excretion, or, in other words, “How much really gets there?” and where is actually “There”?

One of the tools for obtaining information related to the ADME behavior of the drug, is to determine the levels of compounds of interest in various biological tissues and fluids – i.e., Bioanalytics. In pre-clinical (animal) studies, this can include the analyses of plasma, urine, feces, skin, internal organs and brain. Clinical (human) studies usually include plasma, urine and feces. One of the greatest challenges of determining the levels of cannabinoids in the body, is the highly sensitive detection levels required.   

Analyst Research Laboratories, with its more than 2 decades of experience in the Pharmaceutical, Bioanalytical and Analytical arena, is employing this vast experience to the area of Medical Cannabis.

With in-house validated Bioanalytical and Analytical methods for a variety of cannabinoids, species and tissues, Analyst is routinely supporting its customers from Israel and abroad in their Pre-Clinical and Clinical studies.

If you are developing a new formulation or product, planning a pre-clinical or clinical trial, we will be more than happy to discuss your needs and see if we can help you.
