COE's workflow offers process security to pharmaceutical companies

Stuttgart/Bremen, 15.11.2017. Carl Ostermann Erben GmbH (COE), one of the few high-end suppliers of printing plates in Germany, was positive about the results of its initial participation in CPhI Worldwide 2017 (24 to 26 October in Frankfurt). At the trade show pharmaceutical companies had the opportunity to obtain full information about the COE pharma workflow. They benefit from the highest data and process security - even with variable data.

For the first time the family firm of COE also presented to an international public its services for pharma companies that print blisters with imprinting devices themselves. The focus was in particular on the pharma workflow developed by COE and on the "coe cam". This reads encoded printing plates, and therefore ensures that the right printing plate is used for blister printing.

Process security - an essential element in the pharmaceutical industry

"We are in a position not just to secure our own processes, but also to offer effective solutions for pharmaceutical companies", explains Michael Halfar, Business Development Manager at COE, adding: "With our participation at the CPhI, we were able to introduce our impressive solutions to a wide-ranging international trade public."

COE has a total of three fully redundant and established production lines at two locations with certified process reliability according to ISO 9001: 2015. An efficient logistics system in the pre-press stage ensures safe, just-in-time or express overnight delivery. This means that customers receive the finished printing plates as early as the following day of the print release and can print. COE punches the printing plates so that they are ready for installation.
