Only absolute quality counts
Uncompromising commitment to excellence is the key to the fulfillment of the highest expectations in the areas of patient safety and quality. Here, we have proved that PIA production methods can deliver the highest levels of product safety. Alongside conventional, customer-specific solutions, PIA Automation also offers meditec®, an innovative product line for integration in medical systems. These products fulfill strict hygiene requirements and are the first medical-technology assembly systems to have been assessed and approved for use in clean room environments by the Fraunhofer Institute.
meditec® unites sophisticated assembly tasks with compact, clean-room-approved design and fulfills the most stringent documentation requirements. The assembly systems demonstrate a high degree of standardization and enable short time-to-market cycles.
We have developed a large number of automation solutions for a wide variety of products from the health sector.

COMPREHENSIVE MEDICAL SOLUTIONS
In this sector, PIA offers a wide range of individual production equipment of the highest standards. In addition to the Meditec® cleanroom modules, we have more production modules available. These include turnkey production facilities, test systems and laboratory automation for liquid and solid-state products.
OUR EXPERTISE STARTS IN PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT ALSO IN THE MEDICAL SECTOR
In particular, we offer the rapid and efficient implementation of auxiliary devices that are required for pre-series production or for products at the development stage. Our flexible solutions for new and innovative products in the medical sector can be implemented for different cycle times in a scalable and process-safe manner.
INTEGRATION OF SOFTWARE & MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL SUBSYSTEMS
In addition to in-house expertise in innumerable technological areas, we are also specialized in the integration of mechanical, electrical and software-based subsystems. Depending on customer and product requirements, our systems are designed in the desired or required cleanroom classes.
With PIA you have a comprehensive competent contact partner for the entire production process of medical technology. Our range of services extends from design, prototyping, mechanical and electrical construction to programming, commissioning and production ramp-up – from hand-held devices to complex, fully automated facilities.
Modular system concepts that support different levels of automation are also part of our portfolio.

meditec® manual workstation
The special solution for small series, clinical tests and process validation.
We support our customers with manual workstations for clinical samples or for proof of principles. Our flexible and ergonomically designed manual workstations are based on a standardized basic structure. They enable economical small series production with high process reliability at the same time, thanks to extensive poka-yoke measures and workflow monitoring by a central control computer system. Multiple PIA manual workstations can be easily connected to lean production systems.
The special solution for medium-sized lots with automated processes and manual loading and unloading
The semi-automatic manufacturing station can be manually loaded and unloaded. Up to 15 cycles per minute are possible, with an integration of four process and test stations each. The system can be designed as a cleanroom class 6 and can be upgraded and retrofitted as a fully automated production system. It is characterized by its adaptability to other applications and types and the simplicity of integrating new processes.
meditec® rotary indexing assembly system
Designed for the fast assembly of modules up to cleanroom class 5.
Due to the special hygienic requirements, the station drives are mounted below the table top. This production line attains up to 60 cycles/min with 1-8 feed lanes. Components up to 80 mm can be assembled. In the case of very compact dimensions, the system requires only a small footprint.
meditec® Linear transfer system
Suitable for complex and fast and modularly expandable assembly of modules up to cleanroom class 6.
This assembly unit has a workpiece transport and allows variable processing times of up to 200 cycles/min. Components of up to 60 x160 mm can be assembled.
Optional for all Meditec® modules:
- Cam control
- Integrated control cabinet
- ESD design
- PIA clictec®
- Laminar flow
- Turnkey facilities including packaging machines
- Facility qualification
This system is especially suitable for testing pens and auto-injectors containing active substances.
Product features are tested, such as the torque of threads (torque test), the actuating pressing forces and the corresponding paths. Other decisive test procedures are the gravimetric recording of the dosing quantity and the dosing duration. The module can be carried out up to cleanroom class 8. It is characterized by its unmanned operation. This autonomy can be extended by an additional palletizing system.
