PIA Automation is an international group of companies and offers technically complex and economically efficient solutions in automation. Future-oriented complete solutions from PIA Automation Amberg are valued as the benchmark for specific assembly tasks in the medical and pharmaceutical industry. Customers are being supported with manual workstations for clinical trials or proof of principles, with semiautomatic production lines for small lots or fully automated systems for serial production. A high degree of standardisation, in connection with proven in-house know-how in qualification and documentation, enables PIA Automation to realise short time-to-market cycles when compared to competitive systems.

Together with its customers, PIA develops testing concepts in order to design devices which are safe in functionality and handling. The company’s design-for-automation principle achieves decisive cost advantages in regard to return on investment. Thus, partnering with PIA Automation already begins in the early stages of a design.

The in-house resources of PIA provide a perfect interaction of mechanics, electronics, programming, measurement technology, production data systems, documentation, image processing, and robotics as well as research and development – everything from a single source. PIA takes into account the trends in the digitalisation and interlinking of the manufacturing processes with its own IoT solutions, which enable advanced control, monitoring, and optimisation of the entire production chain.

PIA’s highly innovative meditec® series of medical assembly systems fuse the efficient solution of demanding assembly tasks with compact design. They comply with all applicable hygiene standards and combine the advantages of pre-assembled cells – namely high availability and short delivery times – with options for customising and upgrading according to customer demands without neglecting GMP requirements. The cells are scaleable in size and design and are suitable for manual workstations, semiautomatic machines or fully automated assembly systems with highly dynamic transport systems. For optimum space utilisation within the cell and cleaning ease, electric and pneumatic components can be placed below the base plate. By the optional use of controlled inlet and outlet openings or ventilation boxes the cell can be equipped with laminar flow.

Uncompromising commitment to excellence is the key to the fulfillment of the highest expectations in the areas of patient safety and quality. Here, PIA has proven that it is capable of delivering production methods at the highest levels of product safety.
