    Lohra, Germany: European leader in lyophilization, HOF Sonderanlagenbau GmbH (HOF), will once again be a high profile presence at Germany’s upcoming Pharma Congress 2019 conference and expo with its highest quality customized freeze-drying solutions.

    Visitors to the Düsseldorf congress will once again find HOF under its banner of “Knowledge makes the Difference” at its accustomed home on Stand 48 at the Crowne Plaza, displaying a wide range of its specialized technologies and solutions.

    Specialist team

    “It is a huge pleasure to be returning to Pharma Kongress,” commented HOF head of Strategic Management, Dr. Alexander Hof, who will lead the team in Düsseldorf, accompanied by specialists in lyophilizer and loading/unloading systems.

    “We have attended this event with great success for many years and it is now a central date in our calendar, representing one of the year’s best networking events for our sector,” said Dr. Hof.

    “Our systems are too big and complex to be demonstrated on a show stand, since every one is uniquely configured to customer specification and therefore no two are exactly alike. However, we will be able to show our visitors the kinds of advanced engineering and technologies that we can incorporate,” Dr. Hof explained.

    Robotic technologies

    These technologies include the innovative 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.

    “We are looking forward to welcoming anyone interested in our technologies to our stand for face-to-face discussions with our expert team to discuss specific issues and solutions,” said Dr. Hof.
