New solid pharma solutions by Bosch

At Interpack 2017, Bosch Packaging Technology presents its latest solutions for solid pharmaceuticals

Bosch will be presenting their solutions for solid pharmaceuticals for Interpack 2017. This year, the focus is on technologies that allow customers to flexibly develop, manufacture and package products from powders to tablets and capsules.

“One highlight is our new Xelum platform, which enables us to take the step from batch production to Continuous Manufacturing,” said Christian Treitel, Head of pharma Business Development at Bosch Packaging Technology.

Phase-testing and continuous production

As an example of small-batch development to production scale-up, Bosch showcases the Solidlab 2 fluid-bed and drum-coater module. The new phase-testing device makes it possible to automatically determine the stability of liquid, creamy or pasty formulations.

With the new Xelum platform, Bosch presents a solution for the continuous production of solid pharmaceuticals. Dosing, mixing, granulating and pressing – one system combines all of the steps, automatically and without interruption.

Tablet press, capsule fillers and cartoning machines

The first TPR 500 tablet press comes quipped with a 56-station rotor, the TPR 500 has an output rate of more than 400,000 tablets per hour.

From the capsule filling portfolio, Bosch presents the GKF 2600 with integrated weighing station. The system can process various products like powders, pellets or liquids at output rates of up to 2,600 capsules per minute. The integrated Net Weight Detection System (NWDS) automatically corrects deviations in the filling volume for micro dosing and pellet filling.

Bosch’s portfolio includes a range of cartoning machines, such as the horizontal cartoning machine CUT 1405, which offers a choice of feeding systems, formats and closure variants. A CPS module with checkweigher and Tamper Evident labelling function serialises the folded cartons.
