Cosmetic line
1. Cleaning
Process: Cleaning

Hygiene is everything when it comes to maintaining an outstanding product image. You can rely on excellent product quality thanks to the solid cleaning concept. This includes:

  • Removing any supply residues 
  • Blowing out and suctioning of containers (upright, upside down)
  • Possible simultaneous puck loading
2. Filling
Process: Filling

The right filling equipment is essential to ensure a smooth filling process. This safe and gentle technology handles products as diverse as low-viscosity perfumes, lotions or high-viscosity mascara. The filling modules are scalable in size and can be cleaned quickly, either– manually, via ergonomic trolley solutions or with automated CIP/SIP variant  (Cleaning-in-place/Sterilization-in-place), as well as COP (cleaning-out-of-place). If needed, explosion-protected filling modules are also available upon request. 

  • Consistent optimal filling precision across all formats
  • Avoid soiling of the packaging material
  • Very little residual product in the filling tank at the end of production
     
3. Handling/robotics
Process: Handling and robotics

We use all our finesse when handling your products. Select or combine flexible feed systems such as bulk and tray, or choose traditional feeding via a bowl feeder. Use format part-reduced conversion or multiple-use format parts to suit your requirements. We will be happy to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the wide range of available options.

  • Gentle handling of sensitive packaging materials
  • Automated teaching of new formats
  • Wide range of closures can be fed on one machine
4. Closing, punching and sealing
Processes: Closing, punching and sealing

Your product is safely and securely packaged thanks to function solutions for all common closure types, such as rebounding, screwing, aligning, inserting, crimping and sealing You can process plugs, sealing films, press-fit or screw caps, pumps and airless applications as required.

  • High process stability when the torque is reached
  • Exact positioning and gentle handling of the closures
  • High product sealing properties
5. Cartoning
Process: Cartoning

No matter what and how you box your products, thanks to flexible cartoning, your products will always fit together as a unit at the point of sale. Select suitable solutions from semi-automatic machine to the fully automatic vertical cartoning machine. To ensure your cosmetics stand out on the market, we can also support you with various extras such as in-liners, booklets, leaflets or applicators.

  • A wide range of formats offers great flexibility
  • Gentle handling of your products

Labeling

A label can decorate, inform and protect. The integrated labeling module from Optima therefore offers top, side and bottom labeling options.  Use it to label, emboss, code or print, for example with an Inkjet, laser or thermal transfer printer. Reliable product tracking and labeling.

  • Integrated labeling module saves space and costs for additional labeling machines 
Process: Control
Monitoring

Based on the motto "trust is good, monitoring is better", we use state-of-the-art technologies for 100% good products.  These include moment testing during the capping process, defect inspection via augmented reality, or the use of light to localize sources of interference. Sensors and cameras check for presence, position, orientation or damage; integrated weighing technology takes samples or monitors complete batches.

  • Maximum machine availability and consistently high product quality
Process: Automation
Automation

Automation options along the entire production line help improve productivity and throughput. Automations can also be directly integrated in the filling and closing machine, as well as in the cartoning machine.  You have the choice with the feed: From classic feeders such as vibrating sorters to variable robotics.

  • Process a wide range of packaging in different formats on one line
  • Gentle handling of your components

Format changes

Quick format changes are essential when filling and packaging cosmetics. On filling systems from Optima, you can change the formats fully automatically, semi-automatically or manually.  Adjustable or plug-in applications are possible. The format change is supported by the traditional machine documentation or innovative augmented reality applications. In addition, we offer new manufacturing methods such as 3D printing targeted where they offer you added value. Extremely user-friendly: The system ensures that format tools are correctly positioned 

  • Quick format changes enable small, economical batches
