VDMA 8751 (draft): Packaging machinery (incl. filling machinery) – Specification and measurement of energy and utility consumption

Energy and utility media consumption of packaging machinery is dependent on the operation pattern of the machine system considered. This VDMA standard sheet defines key figures and machine performance levels for which average energy and media consumption could be specified related to defined boundary conditions. Based on these specifications the expected energy- and media consumption could be calculated for a given production pattern. The calculated consumption could be verified by measurement of energy and media consumption in the course of an acceptance run of the machine system.

VDMA future scenario: personalized medicine in the solids sector

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.

VDMA 8799 - Determination of the yield of tablet presses

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.

VDMA Guideline on Integration of Intelligent Components in Packaging and Processing Machinery in a GxP Environment

24.05.2018 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.
