Alcon and Excelvision increase productivity with Bosch


Pharmaceutical manufacturers often work with delicate components that require careful product handling. Ensuring that medical products arrive at their destination in perfect condition is vital. At the same time, demand for pharmaceutical products is on the rise. To stay competitive and secure new business opportunities, manufacturers need to bring their production up to speed – without compromising on quality.


Two companies faced with the need to increase productivity were Swiss-based medical company Alcon and French contract manufacturer Excelvision. Both were looking to find a packaging solution capable of delivering high output and protection for some of their leading eye care products – classic eye drop bottles for Alcon and vial cards for Excelvision.


For both manufacturers the solution was Bosch Packaging Technology’s Sigpack HSL horizontal flow wrapper with heat sealing technology. Hermetically tight seals with aluminum-laminated film protect the products from water evaporation and light, ensuring product integrity even in hot climates. Both companies are now able to package 300 packs per minute in hermetically tight packages thus enabling them to extend the shelf life of their products significantly.


Also crucial for pharmaceutical manufacturers looking to streamline their production is dedicated handling equipment that can be easily adapted to suit different product requirements. For accurate placement and gentle handling of different products on the same line, Excelvision opted for the Sigpack LDF Feed Placer. The machine also scores highly on flexibility and can be tailored to different layout and production requirements.


To find out more about our Seamless Systems capabilities for pharmaceutical manufacturers, visit Bosch Packaging Technology at Achema 2015 in Hall 3 booth #C71. At the show, Bosch will exhibit the Sigpack HSL flow wrapper in combination with the LDF Feed Placer for flexible and efficient handling and packaging of products such as blister packs, blow-fill-seal (BFS) packs, ampoules, syringes and inhalers.
