Last week, the winners of the Ypsomed Innovation Award 2022 were honoured. The award, worth a total of CHF 100'000, is presented every two years by the Ypsomed Innovation Fund Foundation. With this award, we support the universities of applied sciences and universities in the Swiss midlands and contribute to making developments from research useful for society.

A message appears on Anna's smartphone; it's time for her next injection. The 19-year-old suffers from psoriasis and has to inject herself regularly with a medication. Anna is a little nervous, because the needle, the prick and the slight pain still make her feel uncomfortable. With the support of the app on her smartphone and her YpsoMate auto-injector, combined with the SmartPilot, she gets over herself, administers the injection that is due and is delighted when a treasure chest opens on the screen and golden light pours out. It shows her that she has done everything right.

We introduced the new mould generation


In week 13 of this year, mould making history was made at Ypsomed. The latest generation of injection moulds was successfully put into operation at the technical centre in Burgdorf. The injection mould in question was the Telescopic Look Sleeve, which was designed and built in-house for the first time as a 16-cavity mould. The special feature here is that the mould produces 32 moulded parts in a single injection cycle and assembles the two parts which belong together while still in the mould – and thus allows 16 assembled parts to be removed from the mould with a pick and place gripper.
