Some filling and packaging challenges need to be dealt with even faster than others. To do this, short delivery times are needed, and this can only be achieved with standardized machine solutions. That is why the tried-and-tested OPTIMA Moduline filling and closing machine is now also available with preconfigured machine modules. The result is a whole host of advantages for machine users.
“The tried and tested Moduline machine platform for liquid, pastel and powder-based cosmetics is now also available with streamlined configuration options,” explains Alfred Weihbrecht, Director Sales Cosmetics & Chemicals at Optima Consumer. “The higher levels of standardization means that the investment costs are manageable with tried-and-tested Optima quality and high output rates of 60 to 120 products per minute,” says Weihbrecht. It is possible to expand the systems at any time due to standardized interfaces. Other benefits include short delivery times, rapid installation and commissioning on site, and an overall rapid time-to-market.
Optima customers will continue to receive the “full range” of options – for example, in terms of the versions of the filling modules with CIP/SIP systems. “However, the systems are now even more closely suited to the relevant application, and that reduces the purchase price,” explains Weihbrecht. The basic machine platform can be equipped with the extras required using various options, so it can still be tailored to meet individual needs.
“Initial projects have gone very well,” Weihbrecht reports. The machines are becoming increasingly compact, with a reduced footprint. This contributes to an advantageous total cost of ownership and saves resources. “Its optimal price-performance ratio makes a preconfigured OPTIMA Moduline particularly suitable for medium-sized companies and contract manufacturers,” says Weihbrecht.

The predefined options for our systems enable us to create the right conditions for shorter delivery times and cost efficiency. This is a double win for our customers.
“The predefined options for our systems enable us to create the right conditions for shorter delivery times and cost efficiency,” adds Heiko Kuehne, Managing Director at Optima Consumer. This means that modules can be kept in stock and so are available more quickly. “This is a double win for our customers,” says Kuehne. They get the usual high quality, but at a more favorable price.
