Process & Packaging

Automated and Semi Automated solutions for process and packaging

Astech provide solutions for process and packaging automation in industry sectors where product quality is the customer’s highest priority.


Astech provide customised automation solutions for all areas of processing and packaging including;

  • Feeding

  • Sorting

  • Picking

  • Placing

  • Packing

  • Vision

  • Inspection

  • Testing

  • We are able to integrate custom machinery, third party packaging equipment and secondary packaging processes to help you achieve a seamless automation application. We can provide the product tracking information and inspection solutions necessary to ensure overall product integrity, which can be particularly important in medical device and pharmaceutical applications.

    Many of today’s manufacturing processes rely on batch processing methods and batch testing to evaluate quality prior to release. A significant proportion of these processes could benefit from the introduction of in-process measurements. Developing an effective, well designed manufacturing process allows real time in process measurements to be used to control and monitor the manufacturing process, thereby offering real time quality assurance. This can remove or, at least, reduce the need for batch testing and therefore allow manufacturers to deliver high quality products to market in a shorter timeframe with improved efficiency and longer shelf life.


    Astech develop in process measurement systems within a QbD driven environment. Our focus is advanced manufacturing applications spanning pharmaceutical, medical, scientific and aerospace industries. Solutions include physical tests for medical devices, drug release testing, vision based quality checks on precision parts and integration of third-party analytical instruments e.g. spectroscopy or NIR.


    Astech’s capabilities include custom machine building, systems integration and complete software solution delivery including graphical user interfaces and integration with customer management information systems such as SAP.

    Astech recognises that processing and packaging requirements constantly evolve and automated solutions have to be flexible to allow for changes in production volume and product design characteristics. Advances in machine vision and robotics allows Astech to offer flexible solutions that can be re-configured and scaled to suit a customer’s changing requirements.

    We can also provide industry standard testing for product containers and packaging – discover our drop testing robots >

    At Astech Projects, we specialise in solving complex automation problems that involve more than the supply of standard off the shelf packaging machinery.
