Fully automatic investigational products storage

As a general contractor, IBG realizes the modernization of a state-of-the-art investigational products storage facility during operation. The four existing fully automatic stacker cranes, shelf pre-zone, buffer storage, and process stations will be modernized and expanded by two more lanes.

Absolute process reliability, fully automated and computer-controlled loading and removal of the test products with a chaotic inventory management and a complete control of all movements in the warehouse are challenges IGB is faced with in developing the system.

Automatic inspection processes before processing

Investigational products blister packs in which some the requested investigational products are packaged, get automatically removed from the shelf by an automatic storage and retrieval unit (stacker crane) and transferred to a workpiece carrier transport unit. It feeds the blister pack to the automatic removal unit. The requested compound is removed from the blister pack by a robot, scanned, the cover is automatically removed, and it gets weighed to the nearest milligram. It is made available to the laboratory technician only after that procedure. When the investigational medicinal product gets returned and stored, it is rescanned, the remaining weight is measured and automatically packaged up with a new cover before being placed into a free space in the storage area.

Optimisation of production processes in all sectors

Automation and Robotics as instruments for increasing the efficiency of industrial production processes are designed and developed by the IBG / Goeke Technology Group, under the guiding principle "Transformation of human genius into technical perfection". Technology solutions and high technology systems are designed for the individual requirements of our global clients and all sectors, from our main headquarters in Neuenrade, Dortmund.

Automotive solutions, robotics-based solutions and other technology systems from the IBG / Goeke Technology Group are best-in-the-class industry technologies. We achieve this top level in industrial technology through close interlinking of decades of experience as engineers with science and research. We ensure that our know-how in the automotive and robotics fields, as well as our technology service, benefits from optimisation of industrial processes, but without losing sight at the person at the centre of it all – learn more about our social engagement here.
