some shop floor innovation took a hand. James Coleman, Paul Raven and Rob Issacs decided to cut down a well-known soft drinks company 250 ml bottle and use the top and neck as a nozzle. The first prototype halved the amount of sealant used and dropped the time by 65%.

Rob then programmed Pauls 3D printer to make the Mark II with a profiled nozzle to further reduce both time and sealant used. The innovation will save Biogen over £5,000 per year . The team are now planning the Mark III which will have a disposable “insert” to enable the nozzles to be reused. The accompanying video which tells the story was produced by James “Spielberg” Coleman with cinematography by Rob and Paul !

All in all, a great piece of innovation and one that makes me proud of the Manufacturing Team we are building at Biogen. As it says in the video , “Quicker, Neater, Cheaper and Greener” which is not a bad strap line for any business on its Journey to Net Zero.
