Expertise

Bespoke Machinery Design

Bespoke DesignInnomech’s designers are experienced in producing innovative designs for special purpose machinery, utilising the expertise of industry seasoned engineers. Our design will incorporate the best technological building blocks for your unique process. Our design team have frequent ad hoc and formal design reviews to determine that normal operation, validation requirements and failure mode effect are captured, ensuring that every aspect has been thoroughly considered.

Validation of Machines

Bespoke Machinery ValidationValidation starts at the design process. Our experience has shown that designing a bespoke system solely to meet the User Requirement Specification (URS) will result in a machine that is difficult and costly to validate. Our designers anticipate validation throughout the design phase, so that the machine not only meets the specific user requirements, but also provides functionality to control and monitor operational elements. In this way we simplify maintenance procedures and avoid, where possible, avoid unnecessary diversions during the validation process.

Our quality management system, based on Gamp 5 and ASTM E2500, provides revisioned documents, component traceability and conformance certification. In addition Innomech can also produce Installation and Operation Qualification (IQ/OQ) documentation as well as Gauge R&R and other relevant studies to facilitate the project implementation.

On-site

 On-site Machinery supportWe know that for most customers, the delivery of the machine is just the beginning of an integration, training and validation process. As well as providing the necessary documentation, our team can also provide on-site assistance during these early stages.

If for any reason the machine needs to be altered or updated after delivery, Innomech can also provide remote assistance for software updates, on-site assistance for more involved alterations, as well as providing all the relevant documentation for revalidation and revisioned updated specifications.

Robot integration

Robot-IntegrationInnomech has developer partnerships with with ABB, Toshiba and Mistubishi for robot supply, but our evaluation of your process may dictate alternate technology. Our engineers have experience of integrating a variety of robotic equipment provided by many of the established robotic manufacturers.

Automated testing

End Of Line TestInnomech have provided many of the leading medical device and pharmaceutical companies with validated End Of Line Testing (EOLT) equipment. These EOLT’s have been either stand-alone machines, which involve manual loading and unloading, or have been integrated into automated assembly machines to produce a complete assembly and test process.

Process automation

Process-automationInnomech’s industry seasoned automation consultants have the diversity of experience to confidently select and combine techniques based upon a sound understanding of their benefits and possible limitations and integrate these to your application. Being able to combine different technologies, with confidence, enables us to design and build innovative, bespoke automation solutions that will reduce product cost and improve product quality.

Precision Handling

Many automation projects require components to be manipulated, but some stretch the boundaries of automation and robot capabilities. In these cases the design of fixtures and grippers becomes critical, along with a clear understanding of the components and process.

High accuracy welding

We have developed equipment using a range of welding techniques from micron diameter wire welding using servo controlled forging force to sophisticated TIG techniques for joining core drill bodies.

Each application has its own challenges, but an in depth knowledge of many welding processes gives GB Innomech a head start with automation projects.
