New developments for the pharmaceutical industry – modular machines for diverse requirements


At Interpack 2014, we will introduce numerous new developments for the pharmaceutical industry. Thanks to their modular design, all machines can be flexibly adapted to current and future market requirements and integrated into line concepts. The exhibits include novelties for the processing, filling, packaging and inspection of liquid and solid dosage forms, as well as a comprehensive services portfolio.


Some of our highlights we would like to present you beforehand:
The new FXS Combi, a filling and closing machine for pre-sterilized nested syringes, vials and cartridges. The FXS Combi is the first machine of its kind with an integrated capping station. It can be flexibly integrated into existing line concepts, allowing for significant space savings. The FXS Combi is designed for low and medium output and can be combined with the proven bag and tub opening machines from Bosch.


The product group Bosch Inspection Technology, founded in the beginning of 2012 following the acquisition of Eisai Machinery, shows an overview of its product portfolio, ranging from manual to fully automated inspection machines for the detection of particles in pharmaceutical liquids and cosmetic container inspection. A special trade show highlight is the reveal of the AIM 8 series, the new generation of fully automated inspection machines from Bosch Inspection Technology. In the future, the series will be completed by additional models to cover further parenteral liquid container types, such as syringes, cartridges and ampoules. The AIM 8 series is characterized by a modular design, which allows an easy adaptation of the machines to customer-specific requirements. “With its range of different modules, we can flexibly tailor the AIM 8 to customer specifications, for instance by choosing from standardized inspection units or adding an extra inspection table,” Katsumi Shimizu, technical project leader at Bosch Packaging Technology K.K. in Japan explains.


Furthermore, Bosch will showcase a new tablet press from the product brand Manesty, which particularly features easy handling. The low-maintenance tablet press is easy to access. A newly developed filling shoe, as well as fast product and format changeover enhance the machine’s output, making the tablet press especially suitable for customers with flexible requirements.


A further trade show novelty comes from secondary packaging. The new cartoning machine CUT 1405 offers higher flexibility, as well as newest servo and safety technology at reduced costs. The CUT 1405 can flexibly process different carton sizes to reliably and safely package a wide variety of product types. The CUT 1405 is equipped with quickly exchangeable carton sealing modules for tuck-in, glue and combined closures. Moreover, the intermittent horizontal cartoner is compatible with serialization and aggregation modules, which are also on show at Interpack.
