Whether fine-grain, powdery, viscous or fluid – the consistencies of chemical products and pharmaceutical chemistry vary greatly, as do our systems for packaging them. We hear exactly what you're saying, understand your challenges and will develop with you optimum tailor-made machines or an entire line for your special requirements. Whether they be put together based on pre-configured modules or totally based on customers' specific requirements. Regardless, we can produce the level of automation that you want.

We have great know-how. A century of expertise
With OPTIMA, the chemistry is right

For 100 years, we at Optima have been focusing on precise dosing and careful handling of valuable and sensitive products in a very wide range of sectors. Every day, we make progress and our technologies are improved. In the chemistry sector, in addition to our pre-configured standard solutions, we design a wide range of customer-specific systems and turnkey lines.

The dosing facilities plays a key role in this. Our tailor-made, volumetric and gravimetric systems for dry chemical products and pharmaceuticals ensure a high level of filling accuracy and production rates – whether in bags or cans. That same goes for our systems for filling bottles, vials or jars or similar containers with liquids or viscous products.

For these processes, the safety of your production is always at the forefront: For example, if so desired, we can integrate explosion-proof filling modules.

For that, you can rely on OPTIMA
A development partner for all production expansion stages
Minimal time to market
Safe, sturdy and reproducible processes

Cosmetic filling line process: machine cleans plastic container
Cleaning

The purity of your chemical products and pharmaceutical chemistry is absolutely essential. Thanks to our clever cleaning concept, safety is guaranteed at all times: Carefully, air is blown into and extracted from the containers (right side up and upside down) and all supplier residue is completely removed. At the same time, puck loading can be carried out.

Plastic containers are filled in a machine
Filling and dosing

Precise filling technology ensures the highest filling accuracy. We adjust it to the consistency of the product: whether fine-grain, powdery, dust-forming, viscous, sticky or fluid. For some formats, size scalable filling modes area available. Explosion-proof versions also exist. We offer different types of module cleaning: manual, ergonomic trolley solution, automated CIP/SIP (Cleaning-In-Place/Sterilization-In-Place) or COP (Cleaning-Out-of-Place).

Containers are closed by a machine
Closing

Depending on the desired function, we offer solutions for plugs, push-on caps or screw caps in various sizes, seal films and pumps with or without overcap. For all variations, we ensure high process stability for attaining the correct torque value and exact placement and safe handling of the closure. And finally, a high level of sealing of your products.

Products are controlled
Monitoring

Chemical products and pharmaceutical chemistry require special attention. That's why we use various modern technologies for production control. For example, sensor technology, cameras and integrated weighing technology for samples or batch controls, torque verification when closing, error inspection via augmented reality and light for locating sources of interference. This ensures that you have constantly high product quality with maximum machine availability.

Coding and labeling

For reliable labeling and easy traceability, we label and code your products. We can also integrate the appropriate model for top, side and bottom labeling. Inkjet, thermal transfer or laser printing is used for embossing, printing and coding, followed by a check using sensor or camera technology.

Robotics and handling

Our systems handle your products and containers with sensitivity. There is flexibility when it comes to the infeed. Combined infeed solutions are practical – for example, a standard infeed as bulk material, paired with a partial delivery in the box or tray. If you require a change of format, you can take advantage of rapid change-over procedures, especially within a single product family. In particular, the sensitive steps of a procedure, for example handling acids, can be done using robotics. That prevents contact between people and the product and increases product safety.
