Bohle Uni Cone BUC® coats even small particles more precisely and evenly
Brand and utility models are now protected
With the Bohle Uni Cone BUC ® process, the special machine builder L.B. Bohle Maschinen + Verfahren GmbH can protect a new development method for precise coating of particles as a utility model right now. “We have shown that our new method works much more accurately and evenly than the conventional Wurster process”, says the managing director Lorenz Bohle.
The Wurster process is used in the pharmaceutical industry, when small particles, so called pellets, must be coated. Most coating systems, which were used today, were based on this method which was developed by the American Pharmacists Dale E. Wurster in 1959.
From now on L. B. Bohle is a generally accepted partner of the VDMA initiative BlueCompetence.
This initiative takes a stand on the topics power efficiency, electric mobility, society, energy policy and economy.
After the most successful year in the company’s history, founder Lorenz Bohle is again stepping on the gas in 2013: In Ennigerloh, the new “Technology Center” building will start operations in the spring, next to the Service Center.
“Our customers are relying more and more on continuous production processes,” Mr Bohle said. “At the new Development, Test, and Presentation Center, we will be pushing this development forward together with the universities of Dusseldorf and Graz as well as with measurement, control, and process technology experts from Siemens.”
In the first phase, Plant 3 with an area of 3,700m2 will be built. The production space covers 2,600m2, while the remaining area is divided into 550m2 each of workshop and office space.
Sixty new jobs are being created at the Ennigerloh site. "The aim of investment is to further increase the company´s sales and to sfaeguard Ennigerloh as in industrial site in a sustainable way", Lorenz Bohle explained.
On September 21st the new facility Plant 3 was inaugurated. Together with numerous guests L.B. Bohle celebrate the next milestone in the company history with a "bavarian night".
Topics of this edition:
- New building plant 3
- Bohle coating technology
- Continuous twin screw wet granulation
and several interesting topics.
by Dr. Dejan Djuric, Manager Scientifc Operations
Continuous dry granulation has been an established process in the pharmaceutical industry for decades. It is not only applied for moisture- and emperature-sensitive materials, but also for large volume or herbal products, respectively. In comparison with classical wet granulation techniques, a sophisticated drying system is not necessary. This avoids large investments for production equipment and space, and it requires only low manufacturing costs.
Bohle starts its reconstruction of plant three in Ennigerloh in October 2012.
On the area with the space of 20.000 m² the new production facility with 3.700 m² will be finished in autumn 2013.
Up to 60 new jobs will be created in plant three.
Topics of this edition:
- ACHEMA exhibition 2012
- Debut of the dry granulator BRC 100
- Scientific analysis of the BRC 100
- “Sorcerer´s apprentice” Daniel at the ACHEMA
and many other interesting topics!
Ennigerloh, June 2012 – Insiders quickly recognise Machines from L. B. Bohle: easy handling, continuous production and small footprint are the typical features of the products from Ennigerloh. With the BRC 100, a drying granulator is set to celebrate its world premiere at the ACHEMA 2012 in Frankfurt, revealing its typical Bohle genes.
