Pharmaceutical Ayurvedic/Herbal Medicine packaging machine all set up line

Today’s medicines require the utmost flexibility. Pharmaceutical packaging equipment must accommodate everything from large-scale generics to small-scale personalized medicines, and in some cases, on the same line. Pharma and biopharma trends such as smaller batch sizes, cytotoxic compounds, patient compliance and serialization are among the key factors influencing equipment designs. The most sought after solutions incorporate reduced changeover times, safety and automation, and broader processing capabilities with machines that are scalable in functionality and output.

Equipment suppliers and contract packagers provide their insight into the latest capabilities, customer needs, advances with serialization and what to expect from packaging equipment down the road.

Packaging Equipment Expectations

For suppliers, technology and support services will increasingly dominate the realm of packaging equipment. Likewise, comprehensive and flexible packaging solutions will continue to drive demand in the foreseeable future.

“As equipment automation develops and becomes more integrated into the information technology structure of individual facilities and larger conglomerates, the demand will continue to grow for service/support strategies that require experienced software and automation engineers/technicians,” said Mr. Fraatz of MG America. “This includes knowledge and familiarity with the changes in machine and line level systems, as well as plant and even enterprise level architecture such as manufacturing/serialization execution (M/SES) systems and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.”

Mr. Schuchmann at Optima added, “The technical diversity in machine building is growing in the same way that the development of biopharmaceuticals is progressing. If we also think about new areas such as personalized medicine and self-medication, which in our opinion will grow equally significantly, this leads to even more technical diversity.”

According to Mr. Treitel at Bosch, “Many companies have already invested years of effort to develop their pharmaceutical products. They require an equipment solution that supports a fast time-to-market, while preserving the quality of their products. Whether they need a line for the production and packaging of oncology drugs, treatments for diabetes or gastric ulcers, or a solution for eye drops or cough syrup, they will be looking for complete concepts that exactly match the requirements of their specific products.”

Staying ahead of the game is essential—in terms of pharma and biopharma trends, technology and regulations—whether providing companies with the equipment or the contract packaging services they require. This involves intuitive equipment designs and business forethought, as well as client support.


Use of herbal medicine is the oldest form of health care known to mankind. Aryuveda is a life science dealing with treatment as well as enhancing the overall well being of an individual.

These processes start from collection of raw materials, storage, manufacturing, batching, sales, distribution and administration to patients.

Machines Used In Herbal Medicine Manufacturing

Unlike convectional pharmaceutical products whose processes can be standardized, herbal medicine production varies from product to product and involves processes of extracting chemicals from plant material and converting plant or other natural material to forms that can be utilized for treatment purposes. Plant materials are often sourced from different geographical and commercial sources. Ayurvedic medicine manufacturing processes include extraction, fractionation, purification, concentration, mixing and blending, tablet making, coating, bottle filling, packaging and wrapping and many more depending on the nature of product. Some of the machines used in ayurvedic products manufacturing include;

Tablet Granulation Line for Making Tablets and Powder Ayurveda Products
