BEST PRACTICE VIVACY

KOCH INCREASES QUALITY,
REDUCES PRODUCTION WASTE AND REDUCES LOGISTICS COSTS AT VIVACY

Laboratoires VIVACY is a French manufacturer specialising in the development, production and distribution of injectable hyaluronic acid- based medical devices for Aesthetic and Anti-ageing Medicine. Due to the boom in aesthetic procedures, the production volume at the location Archamps is growing strongly, so that automation of the packaging process became necessary.

Task

  • Reduction of logistics effort, ware- housing and space requirements in blister production
  • Minimization of resource consumption and and production waste (films and cover films) through efficient use of materials
  • Integration of customer-specific modules and high-quality design, as the VIVACY production site serves as a reference object

Solution

  • Suitable footprint due to blister machine KBS-KF with integrated stations
  • Specific and resource-saving solution enabling a minimum of waste: equipment of the die-cutting station with double feed
  • Modular design with high tech equipment and communication systems via Ethernet and OPC UA

Results

  • Savings in warehousing and transportation due to integration of blister production into the company
  • Reduction of line stoppings through camera control systems for best packaging results
  • Optimization of blister quality through innovative processes and sustainable machine technology
  • Automation during unloading with sorting of non-conforming blisters

Our project requirements are challenging! Achieving the most satisfactory solutions is only possible with the right know how and an active consulting – both we found at KOCH. The high-tech equipment of the packaging line also fits perfectly our way of working and our high- quality products. With a packaging line from KOCH, we have definitely gained in quality – many thanks for that!
