Bosch at Achema 2015 Hall 3.1 Stand C71

15 to 19 June 2015, Frankfurt am Main, Germany

The new granulation line Hüttlin Granulean is available in three standardized sizes and includes all process steps from mixing and drying to granulating

At Achema 2015, to be held at Frankfurt in Germany, Bosch Packaging Technology, a leading supplier of process and packaging technology, focuses on its line competence. At the event, visitors can expect eleven market launches for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries on a floor space of over 1,000 square meters. With a combination of exhibits and multimedia presentations, Bosch showcases exemplary line configurations for different therapeutic areas.

“Whether customers need a complete line for the production and packaging of oncology drugs, for treatment of diabetes or gastric ulcers, or a solution for eye drops or cough syrup — Bosch is the competent partner for all pharmaceutical requirements,” explains Christian Treitel, head of pharma business development at Bosch Packaging Technology.

Solid and liquid pharmaceuticals

Bosch presents line configuration examples for the manufacturing of tablets for diabetes treatment, as well as for capsules that are administered to cure gastric and intestinal ulcers. The new Hüttlin granulation line Granulean, which is available in three standardized sizes, can for instance be connected to the new Manesty TPR tablet presses via suitable handling and transfer equipment. The capsule line comprises precise dosing, amongst others of pellets, as well as filling on the new GKF 2600 capsule filling machine, followed by inspection and transfer to the packaging process.

On the basis of different therapeutic areas and packaging types, three lines for liquid pharmaceuticals further illustrate Bosch’s line competence. For instance, equipment for all process steps of oncology drugs administered in vials is available — from Pharmatec bioprocess systems to highly precise filling, integration of freeze-drying and capping to external cleaning of vials with the new RAN washing machine. Apart from particle and cosmetic inspection, Bosch also presents a new inspection machine for leak detection. Furthermore, Bosch offers cartoning machines with sophisticated serialization and aggregation solutions for the secondary packaging process.

For ophthalmologic applications, Bosch showcases a Sigpack HSL horizontal flow wrapping machine, which is loaded with vial cards via a Sigpack LDF feed placer. The eye drops, which have been filled with the blow-fill-seal technology, are packaged and hermetically sealed in aluminium compound film to secure products from water vapour and light exposure. An exemplary animation shows how liquid oral dosage forms such as cough syrup can be filled in glass and plastic bottles. Bosch also offers the suitable process technology for these types of medication, as well as the high purity media systems and product sterilizers that are required for after-treatment. Moreover, all line configurations can be flexibly combined with further inspection devices, handling equipment and secondary packaging machines. The requested serialization features are applied to the packaging before aggregation.

Automation technology from Bosch Rexroth

Bosch has set the course for automation technology: the continuous system solution IndraMotion MLC from Rexroth offers a future-proof drive and control technology that also fulfills the growing demands for networked machines and systems on the basis of Open Core Engineering. This way, the automation technology rounds out Bosch’s line competence. Bosch’s technologies will be on display at Achema in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, from 15 to 19 June, Hall 3.1, Stand C71.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
