Benefits of Deburring Technology in the Pharmaceutical Industry

deburring technology

No matter what industry you’re in, accuracy counts. It’s important to have dependable machines and parts that produce accurate, repeatable, predictable results time and time again. The larger the scale of manufacturing, the more important this becomes. But some industries prize accuracy more highly than others. In the pharmaceutical industry, accuracy can mean more than just wasted product, it can potentially mean life or death, and the measures handled in the pharmaceutical industry are frequently so precise that the tiniest alteration can have catastrophic results.

In pharmaceutical manufacturing, it doesn’t take much to throw off a calibration or change a quantity in an unacceptable way, and a small burr or irregularity in a gasket, fitting, or other part can lead to potentially very expensive or even dangerous problems, delaying production for long periods of time, or even contaminating products. Hence, while deburring technology can be an important tool in any manufacturing industry, it’s a particularly integral one to the pharmaceutical industry.

Properly deburred parts can mean the difference between a production run that goes smoothly and one that goes disastrously. One tiny flaw in a part could mean a leak, an incorrect measurement, or worse, and those kinds of problems can stop production entirely. While in regular manufacturing a delay or an error in production can mean lost time and even lost product, in the pharmaceutical industry it can be even more disastrous. Products are often time-sensitive, meaning that delays can ruin entire batches which can quickly lead to exponential increases in cost. And products often have to be kept sterile, which means that leaks or mixes can invalidate entire batches. Plus there are safety concerns for workers when hazardous materials are being processed.

Good deburring machinery is a valuable asset to any manufacturing process, but in the pharmaceutical industry it can quickly become more than an asset. And with the pharmaceutical industry growing by leaps and bounds every day, and with more and more small manufacturers handling medical-grade components, proper deburring for pharmaceutical manufacturing machinery is becoming increasingly important.
