To meet the requirements of complex global pharmaceutical markets, companies not only need innovative machines but also qualified personnel and efficient processes. We provide everything from a single source. The company also helps customers optimize their manufacturing processes for oral solid dosage forms (OSD). To this end, Bosch Packaging Technology regularly organizes workshops and conferences.
The future of continuous manufacturing
In mid-October, for example, the Bosch subsidiary Hüttlin held an international expert conference on the continuous production of oral solid dosage forms. “With this conference, we wanted to contribute to a realistic future of continuous manufacturing. The target was to analyze the technical, process, regulatory and business opportunities as well as the challenges in existing and future OSD plants and to share new insights on how to master them,“ Martin Gross, Managing Director at Hüttlin explains.
In addition to presentations by experts, the conference also included a visit to the Schopfheim plant with live demonstrations. Hüttlin took the opportunity to present its Xelum platform for the continuous production of OSD. “The participants were impressed by our alternative and simple approach to continuous manufacturing, resulting in an improved process robustness and increased flexibility“, says Martin Gross.
GKF Capsule Academy
At the end of September, Bosch Packaging Technology held the three-day workshop “GFK Capsule Academy” at the Waiblingen site on various topics related to the filling of hard capsules. Together with the participants, the capsule experts examined critical parameters for process and machine optimization. The participants not only had the opportunity to exchange ideas with the attending specialists but were also able to fill capsules themselves. “With the combination of theory and practice, we enable our customers to deepen their knowledge and thus improve the process efficiency of their capsule filling operations,” explains Dr. Thomas Brinz, Head of Engineering Pharma Service.
