Several process steps are necessary to manufacture pills. This type of production is time-consuming and cost-intensive, because every step has to be monitored, coordinated and completed. “The process can take between six months and a year for packaging the pills”, explained Johannes Khinast, Scientific Director of RCPE, speaking to the media.

Kiensast is convinced that continuous production methods i.e. without interruptions in the flow of materials, which is usually the case in conventional batch production, could help bring medicines more quickly and inexpensively to the market and also increase product quality. “This can be done in a matter of hours instead of months”, said the RCPE manager in Graz. Bosch Packaging Technology headquartered in Waiblingen near Stuttgart, Germany aims to further develop suitable methods in the coming years in cooperation with RCPE.

The Bosch Group has operated in the fields of mechanical and plant engineering since the 1970s, and also works for the pharmaceutical industry. The focal point of the work done by RCPE, with a workforce of more than 100 employees, is the development of new dosage forms for drugs as well as the related production processes and monitoring methods.
