During interpack 2017 from 4 to 10 May, Bausch+Ströbel will be presenting a number of new developments at a two-storey stand covering an area of 700 square metres.
It goes without saying that we will be prominently featuring our company's anniversary true to the motto: 50 Years of Innovation - and so much more to come! Our interesting exhibits are clear proof that this is a very special year for us.
Barrier Technology is the central theme of Bausch+Ströbel's presentation at interpack 2017. That's why we are consciously presenting our filling and packaging machines in combination with a variety of isolator solutions provided by the isolator manufacturers cooperating with B+S.
Potential isolator applications range from a standardized solution that can be realized quickly and economically to concepts tailor-made for our customers - the first of which will be shown at this year's interpack exhibition for the very first time.
The highly flexible VarioSys® production system, developed by B+S in association with Swiss isolator specialist SKAN, will be the centerpiece of our presentation in Düsseldorf. This cutting-edge system features innovative technology for quick changing of machine modules within a production isolator (for more information, please click on this link: www.variosys.com). A special add-on for this system will also be unveiled at the trade fair.
Barrier Technology is also a feature of our Virtual Reality Center, where we demonstrate the possibilities now offered by Digital Engineering. Taking a virtual mock-up as a basis, VR enables us to test and implement modifications during every phase of the planning and design processes. Another interesting application of this technology is the visualization of air flows.
The KCP will also be on display at our stand. What makes this compact filling and closing machine so flexible is, firstly, the fact that the containers are transported to the individual work stations by special clean room robots; and, secondly, that up to four work stations can be flexibly arranged and integrated into the KCP. These work stations can be easily exchanged later by the operating personnel. The KCP can be used to process almost all standard types of containers (vials, cartridges, etc.). A variety of processing steps (crimping, monitoring, etc.) can be integrated into the work flow with short changeover times.
This system uses the same control and filling technologies as high-speed machines, which means that the new processes developed for it can be easily transferred to large equipment. This feature offers interesting applications for the KCP, particularly in the field of packaging materials and process technology development.
Once again, the B+S stand will be part of a joint presentation by Excellence United at the exhibition. Together with our partners Harro Höfliger, Glatt, Fette and Uhlmann, we will be showcasing the advantages of this strategic alliance; advantages such as joint handling of customer projects, or the Service Portal co-developed by the members of Excellence United.
