September 3, 2020

Joining forces to fight COVID-19

Optima has pulled out all the stops to deliver a filling system to the US-based company Catalent at its Biologics facility in Bloomington, Indiana. The vial system with an isolator will be the second vial line installed at the site and is intended to be used initially for the filling of a candidate vaccine to fight COVID-19.

Insights

Fast, flexible and sustainable

The issue of sustainability is becoming more and more important. Recyclable aluminium capsules are very popular. Ahold Delhaize from the Netherlands has also observed this. Consequently, a plastic capsule production line currently under construction has been quickly adapted to meet the requirements for producing aluminum capsules, and this offers a lot of technical features.

Asian freshwater pearls are highly desirable. They have become the namesake of a new system for packaging feminine hygiene products. OPTIMA "Pearl" has been designed to completely meet the requirements of the global manufacturers producing in Asia, with high output packaging in small volumes, which is typical of the Asian market. What is not so typical is the exceptional priceperformance ratio.

Robots Master Complexity

Robots Master Complexity

Robot systems are playing an increasingly important role. These reliable assistants are fully integrated into Optima's filling and packaging systems.
