This performance is made possible by the patented Duplex Concept offered by Fette Compacting, whereby the machine features a dual capsule filling process.

PHARMAMARKT 2020: UPSWING TURN FOR GLOBAL PRODUCTION

According to current studies, pharmaceutical producers can look forward to growing demand in the years to come. Growth means that more people receive access to medical care on the one hand while special medication for rare diseases gains in importance on the other. This increases international requirements on flexibility and quality in production.
Machine technology is obliged to offer the right solutions for each product and each requirement – increasingly in accordance with uniform global standards. In an interview, Rainer Krugmann, Global Director Sales at Fette Compacting, provides an outlook as to what trends Fette Compacting can anticipate in the production of solid formulations.

CONTINUOUS MANUFACTURING: MONTHS BECOME HOURS

Product approval in real time? Producers of pharmaceuticals and machine manufacturers worldwide are working on this vision. Thanks to Continuous Manufacturing (CM), delays attributable to separate production processes, complex conversions and long offline analyses could soon be a thing of the past. Pilot plants are already available but it’s still early days for technology in the area of commercial pharmaceutical production. In an interview, Dr. Martin Schöler from Fette Compacting outlines the discoveries made by these pilot projects and how the CM vision is to become a reality.
