    Lohra, Germany: – European leader in high quality tailored freeze-drying lyophilization solutions, HOF Sonderanlagenbau GmbH, will exhibit at the upcoming ACHEMA 2018 expo in Frankfurt.

    Under its banner of “Knowledge makes the Difference”, HOF will exhibit from stand B63 in Hall 5.1 at the Frankfurt Messe showground.

    Smart loading and unloading

    A four-strong HOF team, led by Managing Director Hans-Georg Hof, wife Gerlinde Hof (Commercial Director) and son Dr. Alexander Hof (Management) will display a range of their innovative solutions.

    In particular, they will demonstrate the revolutionary HOF smartVTS loading and unloading system with a robot for placing stoppers for the wireless tempris© sensor system. The robot system automatically replaces the stoppers with stoppers equipped with an tempris© antenna for process monitoring in a freely definable position. These vials can then also be unloaded in a fully automatic process.

    “HOF Sonderanlagenbau GmbH will be 30 years old this year. We are very proud of this small anniversary and want to take the opportunity to invite our customers to celebrate with us at our ACHEMA stand,” said Alexander Hof.

    “We would be pleased to welcome anyone interested in our technologies at our exhibition stand for face-to-face discussion, where wil will have number of experts on hand to share knowledge and suggest solutions for particular challenges,” said Dr. Hof.
