MILWAUKEE,- At INTERPHEX New York, Rockwell Automation (Booth No. 2336) will demonstrate how its integrated control and information systems and services provide life sciences manufacturers with significant productivity and cost savings benefits, while helping OEMs enhance their competitive position. The company will highlight areas important in pharmaceutical manufacturing, including power and energy management, process optimization, packaging, manufacturing execution systems and customer support. INTERPHEX New York 2007 occurs April 24 through April 26 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

“Both life sciences companies and the OEMs serving them are under constant pressure to meet the universal manufacturing demand for high quality, high value, high performance and innovation,” said Bob Honor, vice president of Life Sciences, Rockwell Automation. “To remain globally competitive, manufacturers must increase operational efficiency and minimize risk and cost. We can help them connect islands of information and automation across business, manufacturing and utility systems to achieve their goals and gain a distinct competitive advantage.”

The Rockwell Automation booth will showcase the company’s solutions and global support capabilities for the life sciences industry including:

Process - For pharmaceutical manufacturers, bridging the gap between a variety of process and discrete applications is essential for cost-effective plant control and streamlined production. Rockwell Automation will be showcasing its Integrated ArchitectureT, which helps manufacturers take advantage of the latest techniques in process control using modular, scalable plant-wide control systems that extend from process to discrete and from shop floor to top floor. FactoryTalk Batch recipe management software and FactoryTalk AssetCentre change management software also will be highlighted.

Manufacturing Execution Systems - Last fall, the company released three software applications for the life sciences industry to help companies facilitate the real-time exchange of information between manufacturing and business-level systems - from clinical trail supply management to production. Highlighted at INTERPHEX New York, Rockwell Software RS PMX CTM version 4.0, RS PMX MES version 4.2 and FactoryTalk ProductionCentre MES software applications provide real-time visibility into the production process to help life sciences companies improve full-scale manufacturing operations to shorten development-to-manufacturing cycles. These offerings use an integrated approach to process analytical technology and - when combined with global services, hardware, and automation integration - enable companies to accelerate technology transfer from R&D to production.

Utilities - To help manufacturers better understand their power and energy usage, Rockwell Automation will highlight its power and energy management solutions, as well as its Qualified Building Automation Systems (QBAS) solutions that provide highly controlled environments for heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration equipment.

Packaging - Scalable automation technology from Rockwell Automation includes a wide range of integrated control and information systems for packaging applications that can provide life sciences manufacturers with significant productivity and cost savings benefits. From a single drive to highly complex, integrated motion control, Rockwell Automation addresses precise packaging requirements.

Support - Life sciences companies’ ability to predict, prevent and minimize production disruptions is critical to assure plant-floor assets work together for optimized performance. Rockwell Automation strategic maintenance solutions help life sciences manufacturers reduce downtime and improve operational efficiency.
