PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY EVENTS CALENDAR

ACHEMA 2018

11-15 June 2018
Messe Frankfurt GmbH

New at ACHEMA 2018: focus on chemical and pharma logistics

ACHEMA is the world forum for the process industries, but also an integral part of the trade show calendar of companies specializing in pharma packaging. Every three years 3,800 exhibitors and 170,000 visitors gather in Frankfurt/Main, Germany for the trade show that features everything you need to furnish a chemical or pharma production plant.

Due to the high demand there will be an additional 4.000 m˛ hall for the exhibition group pharmaceutical, packaging and storing techniques in 2018. This hall will also be the home of the Logistics Hotspot, the epicenter of the focal topic Chemical and Pharma Logistics. This special exhibition zone is dedicated to logistics companies specializing in chemical and pharma logistics and covers the whole supply chain from

  • warehousing
  • intralogistics
  • tracking and tracing
  • temperature controlled transport to
  • intermodal transport

The focal topic chemical and pharma logistics comes into play where the logistics become special because chemicals and pharmaceuticals are special products. It starts with temperature sensitive goods and doesn’t stop at hazardous materials.

Intralogistics within a factory are the responsibility of the company, but inbound and outbound transport is increasingly delegated to service providers. These are more and more becoming system partners as digitization leads to changes in supply change management and distribution, too. Many links of this value chain are not yet present at ACHEMA, although they are a logical continuation of packaging topics, a classic at ACHEMA. The Logistics Hotspot opens up this new topic; embedded in the exhibition there is a presentation stage where talks about the latest developments in logistics will be held throughout the week.

White Papers

Syringe siliconization

Gerresheimer AG

Ready-to-fill, i.e. sterile, prefillable glass syringes, are washed, siliconized, sterilized and packaged by the primary packaging manufacturer. They can then be filled by the pharmaceutical companies without any further processing. These days the majority of prefillable syringes are made of glass and the trend looks set to continue. The siliconization of the syringe barrel is an extremely important aspect of the production of sterile, prefillable glass syringes because the functional interaction of the glass barrel siliconization and the plunger stopper siliconization is crucial to the efficiency of the entire system. Both inadequate and excessive siliconization can cause problems in this connection. The use of modern technology can achieve an extremely uniform distribution of silicone oil in glass syringes with reduced quantities of silicone oil. Another option for minimizing the amount of free silicone oil in a syringe is the thermal fixation of the silicone oil on the glass surface in a process called baked-on siliconization. Plastic-based silicone oil-free or low-silicone oil prefillable syringe systems are a relatively new development. Silicone oil-free lubricant coatings for syringes are also currently in the development phase.
