A global variety of globally trending topics under the umbrella of the Bosch Packaging Academy are organized in seminars and practical training designed to meet participants’ individual needs. Bosch Packaging Technology has expanded its range of seminars for the development and production of solid pharmaceuticals under the umbrella of the Bosch Packaging Academy. In response to an increasing demand, Bosch now offers more practical trainings on sought-after topics, for instance at the German sites in Schopfheim and Waiblingen.


Learning from industry experts

The lectures are given by Bosch associates from different departments together with external industry and research experts. Participants benefit from a mix of theoretical industry knowledge, long-term experience and practical training in the local laboratories. “Our goal is to consistently adapt the trainings to participants’ needs,” explains Marcus Knöll, head of the pharma service department of the Bosch subsidiary Hüttlin in Schopfheim.

“Due to keen interest, we have continuously expanded our range of seminars over the years. And most of them are fully booked within a very short time.” In 2016, the Schopfheim site offers specific operator trainings for granulation and fluid bed usage, as well as seminars focussing on scale-up, granulation and coating. In the scale-up seminar, for instance, lecturers provide a deeper insight into the possibilities of scale-up. “Our specialists train the participants regarding the ideal approach and explain all practical process steps in detail,” says Knöll.


Seminars on capsules and tablets

The site in Waiblingen, Germany, offers several capsule school workshops. The seminar series provides information about the production and pharmaceutical application of hard capsules, the development of formulations, as well as different filling technologies. Further seminars from Bosch include processes, current trends and developments in tablet pressing and coating for different therapeutic areas. The structure of the seminars offers flexible possibilities to obtain the title ‘Specialist of Operation,’ ‘Expert of Solid,’ or ‘Master of Solid.’ In addition to the seminar certificate, the competence centres award credit points in three different categories. Depending on the difficulty level, participants receive one, two or three credit points per completed training course.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
