Over 30 Years of expertise in

Automating our medical labs and pharmaceutical industries

Robotic automation is used in medical and pharmaceutical labs all over the world to improve efficiency, accuracy and safety in various processes, such as research, quality control and manufacturing. Research facilities use autonomous mobile robots to transport materials and samples within and between labs, reducing human errors and contamination risks.

Midwest Engineered Systems has expertise in revolutionizing the medical industry whether through stand-alone process cells or entire production systems. We have integrated collaborative robots that work beside laboratory employees to perform repetitive, high-volume tasks, such as vial handling and mixing. As well as, FDA-compliant pharmacy automation systems that read prescriptions, fill vials, cap bottles, label containers and package medications with high precision and speed.

Our knowledge base extends across a variety of methods from high precision, high-speed manufacturing processes that hold the highest tolerances and quality to handling the packaging and material handling aspects in an automated fashion that increases throughput while reducing routing and shipping issues.

Medical Vial Filling

MWES provides cost-effective and efficient commercial and clinical vial filling automation equipment for various industries, including medical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and chemical applications. Our systems can be designed to fill container types beyond vials including syringes, bottles or cell-culture dishes with the correct dose, every time. Our robots’ performance depends on increasing product preparation and sample analysis throughput while lowering human interaction. Our whole system is made of cleanroom-grade materials, including bowl feeders, that allow bulk handling of sterilized containers and closures without the need for consumable delivery or technician preparation. These high-capacity feeders allow the vial filling automation to run unattended for much longer periods, allowing valuable lab researchers to focus on other tasks.​

Medical Cartridge Coating Automation

This revolutionary system offers a superior inert, immobilized lubrication alternative to current lubrication methods including siliconization and grease or oil applications. MWES integrated the coating process into a full-scale production platform, meeting the demand quantities of the customer.

Medical Component Assembly

In the world of manufacturing small healthcare components, precision is paramount. The level of precision required to perform this application could not be achieved with a manual operation. A leader in the global manufacturing of medical equipment approached MWES to design and build a robotic solution to this problem.
