Pilot line manufacturing is focussed on supporting companies with their early phase product and process development activities. This might be at a pre-commercial level or relate to incremental product evolution. In essence it helps manufacturers develop the right manufacturing strategy for their products including optimising their product design and forward planning for scale-up.
This is achieved by bringing aspects of these development activities into IMR and leveraging IMR on-site capabilities (industrial lab space, technology, robotics, researchers, engineers, partner network) to develop appropriate solutions.
By utilising the support mechanisms described above, it provides companies with the opportunity to develop a more effective and appropriate manufacturing strategy. This in turn can lead to a cheaper, scalable, more robust and faster-to-market product solution.
