Mikron Automation Named Supplier of the Year

Uhlmann Honors Suppliers

December 3, 2010. Boudry, Mikron Automation was named Supplier of the Year 2009 by the Uhlmann Group, based in Germany. Uhlmann and Mikron collaborate in designing and building innovative, customized equipment for the packaging of pharmaceuticals and the assembly of medical devices.

Just recently, Mikron Automation contributed a system to an Uhlmann production line which assembles an inhaler while simultaneously packaging the inhalation powder. Two technical challenges made this project particularly noteworthy. The first challenge was so-called 'simultaneous engineering', with the assembly system being designed before the inhaler had been fully developed. The second challenge was an upgrade to a fully automated assembly solution which the customer ordered before the acceptance of the semi-automatic system.

The upgrade decision reflects the customer's enthusiasm gained in the first few weeks of production with the semi-automatic system.

In the last 60 years, Uhlmann has become a heavyweight in the world of packaging solutions for pharmaceutical products, with major pharmaceutical manufacturers from all over the world on its list of customers. And so Uhlmann accepts nothing less than top quality from its suppliers. This makes Mikron Automation even more proud of being named Supplier of the Year in the "Complete Systems" category. Uhlmann honors Mikron as "competent, flexible, constructive and professional partner". Uhlmann's 'Supplier of the Year' is a bi-annual award.
