Core Machine Processes

Keep an Eye on Your Production Targets

Cleaning
Cleaning

A lasting positive product image is founded on the highest hygiene standards. What you can expect from us, when it comes to the cleaning process, is a consistently high product quality and the removal of all residues from the feeding process. This is ensured by carefully blowing out and vacuuming the containers (both upright and upside down). Puck loading is also possible.
Filling

When you partner with Optima, you benefit from consistently high filling accuracy across the entire range of formats. This reliably eliminates pack soiling. By carefully choosing the right filling technology, your product will be processed as gently as possible, and any residual product at the end of the production process will be reduced. A wide range of different filling technologies are available with scalable filling modules that can be cleaned quickly and can even be explosion-protected if required. Our filling technologies enable you to reliably fill products with low viscosity like perfume to high viscosity products such as mascara. Different products demand different hygiene standards. These range from manual cleaning and trolley solutions to CIP/SIP/COP systems that meet the highest pharmaceutical standards for cleaning and sterilizing your plant.

Closing
Closing

For closing, we offer you high process stability when achieving torque, exact closure positioning, excellent product sealing, and gentle closure operation. Optima provides functional solutions for all common closure types (bouncing, screwing, aligning, inserting, crimping, and sealing). Stoppers, sealing foils, bounce and screw caps, pumps, and airless applications can all be processed using our closing technologies.
Cartoning

Cartoning completes our process expertise. Our aim here is to provide our customers with the greatest flexibility possible, along with gentle product handling, because we want your product to stand out at the point of sale. The way you package is up to you. We will assist you with both semi and fully-automated vertical cartoning solutions. We can also help with your brand differentiation by providing additional solutions for inserting inliners, booklets, leaflets, spatulas, and many other sales add-ons.
