Bosch presents process and inspection technology at the INTERPHEX exhibition in Tokyo

Interphex Japan

From July 2 to 4, 2014, Bosch Packaging Technology will present a selection of its extensive portfolio of solutions for the pharmaceutical industry at INTERPHEX in Tokyo. One highlight of the exhibition in the area of liquid pharmaceuticals is the AIM 8 automated vial inspection machine. In the area of process technology, Bosch will feature a wide selection of laboratory equipment and small-batch production of solid pharmaceuticals. To complete the range of products on show, we will also present various packaging materials suitable for pharmaceutical applications.



New machine for inspection technology
The new AIM 8 series of inspection machines, which was presented to the public for the first time at Interpack 2014 in Dusseldorf, is based on a modular design that allows customers to select the configuration that best suits their requirements. The camera-based system can inspect up to 600 vials per minute. The basic module of the AIM 8 is equipped with a CMOS camera-based particle inspection system and a table for up to five inspection stations. It inspects containers for product defects, such as particles in liquid pharmaceuticals, and for cosmetic defects, such as scratches or marks on the container.


Another solution for liquid pharmaceutics that will be presented in Tokyo is PreVAS: a pre-validated, single-use filling system that was first launched on the market in 2012 and is now an established product that is continuously being improved. The latest enhancement is the PreVAS pump trolley, which provides customers with a mobile filling station that can be flexibly combined with existing filling lines.


Expert solutions for laboratory applications and small-batch production


Solidlab 1

In addition Bosch also features laboratory equipment  for the production of solid pharmaceuticals. The Solidlab 1 combines three process modules in a single machine, for powder mixing, granulation, and coating of pellets and tablets. Other solutions on show include the Mycromix high-shear mixer granulator with Gentlewing bottom drive, for small-batch operations, and the Hüttlin Diskjet for use in fluid bed systems. Another product being presented in Tokyo is the GKF 702 capsule filling machine, which has an output of between 3,000 and 42,000 capsules per hour. Thanks to its modular design, it can be adapted to all commonly used dosing technologies and is capable of filling capsules with a combination of up to three different products.
