Retrofit as an opportunity
Retrofit as an opportunity

When systems have seen better days, action is needed. Often numerous parts in the control cabinet are outdated. Once central automation components such as the control system have been discontinued, the clock starts ticking. A timely retrofit avoids a costly total breakdown. And it opens up the opportunity to benefit from the possibilities of digitalization.

Food supplements redefined
Food Supplements

A food supplement dosage form committed to health and a positive lifestyle – this was the mission of HERMES PHARMA when presenting its HERMES NutriCaps at the Vitafoods trade show in Geneva in May 2019. These capsules will revolutionize the dietary supplements markets. For the market entry, HERMES PHARMA chose the OPTIMA CFR as its filling machine.

Modularity without limits

Optima's new Zero machine platform is the benchmark for high performance, flexibility and modularity. The OPTIMA Zero L1 configuration is used, for instance, to package feminine hygiene and light incontinence products.

How do you ensure dairy industry filling systems are ready for the future? Maier Packaging has been answering this question since 1985. In a project at Zott, the company from Bergen am Chiemsee has proven its know-how for retrofitting pre-existing forming, filling and closing systems.


Fast, flexible and sustainable
CFL capsules

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.
