Bosch Packaging Technology Crailsheim invites international pharmaceutical guests to its Pharmatag 2019 from May 21 to 22 under the motto “Expertise for the perfect flow”.

Visitors to the traditional event will experience two days of exciting lectures, an exclusive plant tour and live demonstrations. “We are looking forward to welcoming our international specialist audience to our Pharmatag in Crailsheim for the ninth time,” says Joachim Brenner, site manager Crailsheim.

Special guest: Ranga Yogeshwar
Bosch Packaging Technology was able to gain the renowned physicist, business journalist and television presenter Ranga Yogeshwar as a guest speaker.

In his keynote, he examines the pharmaceutical world in times of digital change from an external perspective. At the symposium, customers will report about exciting projects and their experiences in working with Bosch Packaging Technology and provide insights into concrete application examples. The traditional plant tour focuses on new technologies for liquid pharmaceutical processing. Participants will get an exclusive glimpse behind the scenes, experience numerous machines in action and see the new developments from Bosch Packaging Technology on site.

Training in virtual surroundings
Bosch presents a highlight from its Industry 4.0 portfolio at the ALF 5000 filling and closing machine for vials and ampoules: a Virtual Reality (VR) application for training purposes. “With VR glasses, operators can practice how to change size parts without having to use the cleanroom,” explains Tobias Goettler, product manager at Bosch Packaging Technology. “With these trainings, we support our customers in expanding their machine knowledge without great effort.” The VR training service is not limited to the ALF 5000; it can also be applied to other machines from Bosch Packaging Technology.

Customer-specific line in action
Also live on show: a customer-specific line for the aseptic filling of bio-pharmaceuticals. As a special feature of the line, integrated robots reduce manual glove interventions as well as interventions for bacterial count monitoring. The line, which was developed together with a leading pharmaceutical manufacturer, enables flexible use of packaging materials with fast format changes and ensures precise, safe and clean handling of the containers.
