Packaging primarily serves as a wrapping for the respective product: ensuring smooth logistics and provides adequate product protection. However, it also serves – and this is no less important – as an information carrier as well as a brand ambassador, influencing preferences such as consumer purchasing behavior. In the healthcare sector, we also offer packaging machines tailored to the special and sensitive needs of individual customers in the medical or pharmaceutical sector. This also includes sterile packaging that is designed to ensure product sterility right up to the point of use. Packaging is thus designed to fulfil an enormous range of functions – plus widely diverse customer requirements. A packaging concept is therefore an essential part of the packaging development process.
In order to be able to select the best possible solution, our experts always keep the following criteria in mind throughout the entire process:
In order to ensure that even the biggest projects run smoothly, KOCH Project Management coordinates all the projects and teams involved from start to finish. The following services are included in the machine price:
The provision of further services can also be arranged within the scope of extended project management:
Sometimes you need more than just a packaging machine: To ensure that everything comes from a single source, KOCH will, on request, provide support as a partner or general contractor. In this function, we accompany you through every stage of the project – from theoretical planning and implementation right down to production. Our approach to this is very innovative and involves developing concepts and holistic solutions that go beyond the mere packaging machine. In addition, KOCH also acts as a consulting expert to ensure that the components are optimally matched. With the KOCH packagingLine, upstream or downstream processes are also tied in. We assume the risk and responsibility for ensuring the perfect interaction of all components and that the line runs reliably. To this end, we supply everything from a single source. This enables us to work with our customers to create a product that meets all requirements.
In our role as a general contractor, we stand for the highest reliability, maximum quality, and innovation in packaging solutions – as can be testified by numerous customers from various industries around the globe.
You can count on KOCH – Your benefits at a glance:
Packaging of sensitive products must meet the highest safety requirements. Manufacturers of medical and pharmaceutical products are therefore required to prove through validation measures that certain procedures and processes are exactly reproducible. Risk-based qualification of equipment sustainably ensures process stability and robustness in the production of healthcare products and is mandatory from a regulatory perspective.
KOCH has therefore been supporting customers in just such projects for many years and, if required, handles the complete qualification of complex production equipment. Based on our extensive experience, we have been able to develop a comprehensive service package, which is documented during the course of the project in compliance with standards and directives (based on GMP, FDA, GAMP 5 and ISO guidelines). This comprehensive service package for the qualification of production facilities includes:
Qualification according to the above-mentioned standards is at the heart of the European and international regulations for the healthcare sector. The KOCH qualification service in documentation and testing thus also carries the medplus® brand.
During the qualification of packaging machines, we check and document the technical aspects of a packaging system over the entire course of the project. If included in the scope of the order, all process- and quality-relevant measuring points are also checked at the same time (or calibration is carried out). The qualification documentation can include the following components:
Our extensive know-how and long-standing experience in the field also make KOCH a strong partner when it comes to machine safety. Our design engineers prepare a risk assessment for each system in accordance with the statutory machine guidelines. To this end, a team of machine safety technicians inspects each individual machine as prescribed by the applicable directives and carries out the necessary measures, such as marking hazardous points.
In addition, we offer the following services:
