The medical division is headed by Dr Peter Woods – an acknowledged expert in automation in the pharmaceutical industry, with his vast experience in developing automated manufacturing systems for the assembly and test of medical devices.
Peter leads a multi-disciplinary team to design and build automation equipment for developers and manufacturers of products such as drug delivery pens, contact lenses, diagnostic kits and surgical instrumentation. Innomech offers everything from feasibility studies through to large-scale system builds. Every system is developed in parallel with a detailed validation document package, including Installation and Operational Qualification (IQ/OQ), CFR21 part11 conformity, Gauge R&R and other relevant studies to enable fast and low cost regulatory compliance.
The company’s track record includes developing machinery for most of the world’s top pharmaceutical companies, as well as many early-stage technology businesses looking to bring first products to market.
“Innomech has designed a highly effective piece of automation to help Owen Mumford further improve test efficiency and process consistency, as well as enabling us to scale up production to meet growing demand for this particular drug delivery device. The Innomech system has also been designed to increase operator health and safety by eliminating previously repetitive manual tasks and the risks in handling fired pens,” said Steve Miles, manager of test methods & validation at Owen Mumford.
