Bosch receives the first design prize of this kind for packaging technology
Bosch Packaging Technology has received the internationally renowned ‘Red Dot Award’ from the Design Zentrum Nordrhein-Westfalen in the category product design. The independent 38-member jury recently announced the award with an ‘Honourable Mention’ and acknowledges the well-executed design achievement of the FXS Combi. The filling and closing machine for pre-sterilised nested syringes, vials and cartridges (small glass containers), developed at the site in Crailsheim, is the first machine from the Packaging Technology division to receive this important design award.
“We are happy about the Red Dot Award, which underlines our expertise in the development of innovative solutions for the pharmaceutical industry. The award shows that our products are not only convincing in terms of quality. They also stand out internationally because of their design,” says Klaus Ullherr, Product Manager, Bosch in Crailsheim. The international experts assessed a total of 4 928 entries from 56 countries. The FXS Combi, which was launched at Interpack 2014, offers particular flexibility and safety. The machine is suited for three different pre-sterilised packaging types, as well as all common filling technologies. As the first filling and closing machine of this kind, the FXS Combi features an integrated capping station for vials and cartridges. Here, the containers are immediately closed after filling to ensure the highest pharma safety. By combining the machine with proven tub and bag openers, as well as different barrier systems, the FXS Combi can be flexibly integrated into complete line concepts, while allowing for significant space savings.
