Visit us at ACHEMA!
The next ACHEMA, World Forum and Leading Show for the Process Industries, will take place on 11. to 15. June 2018 in Frankfurt. Visit us!


The field of manufacturing and packaging machinery for pharmaceuticals is a small but highly specialized segment of German engineering, and very successful in international competition. ACHEMA is the international showcase for this segment. All the leading international manufacturers attend this fair with their stands.
German pharma machine constructors managed to hold their market position in international competition. In terms of value, roughly one in four of every pharma machine comes from Germany.

Pharmaceutical machinery
Small batch sizes and high demands on both product safety and the reproducibility of production processes are the main reasons for the emergence of a specialized pharmaceutical engineering industry, which - according to VDMA estimates - amounts to about seven billion euros worldwide.

Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 - Digitization in mechanical engineering
Everything you need to know about digitization – you can find it here.


This VDMA-specification provides two concepts for the determination of the yield of tablet presses. The (overall) yield of a tablet press is distinguished from the technical yield of a tablet press whereas for the calculating of the technical yield only product losses related to the processing unit ‘tablet press’ are considered.
Personalized medicine is in the process of profoundly changing the global health care system. This does not only apply to the customary individualized treatment of cancer diseases today, but also to the entire spectrum of drug therapy and all pharmaceutical forms. This is shown by a future scenario outline commissioned by the VDMA.
This guideline outlines the requirements arising from 21 CFR 11 and structures the data interchange to take account of these requirements. Furthermore it specifies the communication protocol VDMAXML version 2.0 to facilitate communication in a GxP environment. Examples of the implementation of GxP-specific services are given in the appendix of the guideline.
