Flexible solutions for your competitive success

Pack style flexibility


Changing consumer behavior and new therapies call for a higher variation in pack styles. In the food industry, sustainable materials and unique packaging designs are gaining ground. At the same time, more single households with higher incomes demand new solutions, especially for perishable and convenience food products. In the pharmaceutical industry, smaller patient groups require different drugs to be filled in a variety of containers. Our combi-filling solutions cater to this need: with fast changeover times and easy cleaning options, they make it possible to fill and pack several products into different containers on a single platform.

Production flexibility


Today’s production is characterized by the need for high efficiency and quick return on investment. Fast changeover times for format parts and products make it possible to provide exactly the flexibility you need – be it for varying products or for higher outputs. Automation and robotics significantly speed up production and make it more flexible at the same time. In pharmaceutical operations, robots reduce the need for operator invention and shorten cleaning times. In the food sector, especially the RPP platform offers unrivalled flexibility: the modular design makes it possible to scale up robotics operations cell by cell.

Service flexibility


Flexibility is paramount in new equipment projects. But it is no less important in after sales services. Syntegon has been providing maintenance, spare parts, training, and further services for many years. However, it took the Covid-19 pandemic to show how important service flexibility really is.
