L.B. Bohle unveils new design direction at Interpack 2023 Düsseldorf
Ennigerloh, Germany: – World-respected builder of advanced systems for pharma production, L.B. Bohle Maschinen und Verfahren GmbH (L.B. Bohle), used the Interpack 2023 trade show in Düsseldorf to unveil a new design direction for its leading edge process machines.
The L.B. Bohle stand at Messe Düsseldorf, shared with strategic partner KORSCH AG, featured redesigned versions of three of its best-selling process systems; the BFC 400 tablet coater, BRC 100 Dry Granulator, and the ground-breaking QbCon® 1 truly continuous dry granulator and dryer for CM, along with the ultra-slimline HS SL lifting column.
Form follows function
All the redesigns obey the ‘form follows function’ philosophy.In the context of the conservative process machinery industry, the new L.B. Bohle look is as radical a transformation as Apple’s original iMac G3 computers of the late 1990s.
The new design approach has been in gestation for more than two years, under the leadership of L.B. Bohle’s Executive Director Technology, Thorsten Wesselmann. His team, also including external design consultants, had a brief to combine state-of-the-art technology with modern and distinctive external forms.
“For more than four decades, L.B. Bohle has stood for cutting-edge technology in the pharmaceutical industry. Now the development team has decided to combine premium technology with modern design in the future,” explains Mr. Wesselmann.
“True to the Bauhaus ethos, functionality will continue to represent L.B. Bohle’s DNA in the future. We have succeeded in combining top technical performance and features in a modern design,” says Thorsten Wesselmann.
The new form is based on stainless steel, which remains synonymous with durability, robustness, easy cleaning, and sterility, now combined with distinctive rhomboid shapes, contrasting dark elements, and greater use of transparency.
“The uniform appearance of the new machine generation ensures immediate recognition,” emphasizes Tim Remmert, Executive Director Sales.
“In addition to the modern look, however, the focus was primarily on the inner values: easy handling, fast cleaning, safe processes, transparent workflows, and economical use of resources – all of which, of course, are state of the art,” he added.
As ambassadors for its new design approach, L.B. Bohle selected the BRC dry granulator, which has been a sales hit since its introduction in 2012, the BFC 400 tablet coater that sets world standards for speed, precision, production results and efficiency, and the QbCon®1 introduced in 2018 as the first system to offer a truly continuous solution for the difficult process of continuous wet granulation and drying.
“We deliberately chose the complex challenges of these three systems for the new design,” said Mr. Remmert.
“These references are impressive proof of our technological leadership,” he declared.
