Pharmaceutical manufacturing centers around products that must be created to exact specifications in a heavily regulated environment. In an industry challenged by high R&D costs, competition in the form of generics, and extreme time-to-market pressure, pharmaceutical companies need to optimize their internal manufacturing processes in order to help them remain competitive.

Vorne understands the complexities of bringing digital technology to the plant floor. Pharmaceutical companies must maintain qualified lines in controlled environments, which makes conveying real-time production data and goals a more significant challenge. Vorne XL alleviates many of these concerns by providing a monitoring solution external to the line that is easily accessible over your local area network, enabling supervisors and management alike to see the performance of areas that were previously not monitored.

Other benefits of XL that our pharmaceutical customers love include no software to install, no servers to maintain, no recurring fees, and no contracts. Instead you get unlimited users, free technical support, a 3-year warranty, and free software updates.

Driving Improvement for Pharmaceutical

It is critical for pharmaceutical manufacturers to consistently, safely, and efficiently manufacture the products that their customers depend on while still being able to understand where there are opportunities for improving the throughput of existing manufacturing processes.

The Vorne XL Productivity Appliance empowers you to monitor your processes, improve throughput, and maximize efficiency, all while preserving the integrity of your products. XL drops onto your existing process, making it a quick and easy solution that requires little to no changes to your manufacturing process.

Key Benefits for Pharmaceutical

One of the greatest advantages of Vorne XL is that it deploys as a simple edge computing device. Whether you need to monitor processes involving liquid or powder encapsulation, coaters, tablet presses, blister packs, solid dose filling, pre-filled syringes, or aseptic filling lines, XL “bolts on” externally to your process, enabling remote monitoring without impacting the form or function of the process itself. This is an enormous benefit as you can easily apply XL to virtually any pharmaceutical process and get the same wealth of information, including:

  1. 1
    Precise Cycle Times for High-Speed Operations Pharmaceutical manufacturing typically depends on high-speed operations (e.g., hundreds of pills per second moving through a tablet press). XL can easily handle hundreds of cycles per second - apply it to your high-speed lines with confidence.
  2. 2
    Automatic Running Slow Detection Visualize periods of time during which the line runs slow, exposing potential performance loss trends following major or minor changeover events.
  3. 3
    Automated OEE Reporting Accurate, critical, and precise OEE calculation by the same passionate and knowledgable experts who publish
  4. 4
    Customized Reporting Build upon an already robust reporting platform with intuitive custom reporting capabilities. Create reports and analyses that support your unique continuous improvement activities while easily integrating into your ERP or MES system.
  5. 5
    Scan Reasons Pareto your downtime simply by scanning a barcode to assign reasons. Capture all-important operator insights. Miss a reason? It is automatically highlighted in the timeline so you can see it and update it right away.
