Uhlmann Presents an Augmented Reality Solution at the Trade Fair Pharmtech 2017

Pharma Union, the Uhlmann sales and services company in Russia, was represented at Pharmtech 2017 in Moscow together with the Excellence United partner companies Bausch + Ströbel, Fette Compacting, Glatt, and Harro Höfliger, as well as Wilco, on November 21–24.

The solutions for pharmaceutical serialization and aggregation attracted the most attention at the show. This is logical, because pharmaceutical marking will become obligatory for all manufacturers in Russia as of 2019. Two Uhlmann machines, the USP serialization platform and the UAP aggregation platform, aroused great interest among the visitors. These compact, standalone units can meet the wide range of current serialization and aggregation requirements.

Visitors to the trade fair also showed a keen interest in the augmented reality solution demonstrated by Uhlmann on a Blister line BEC 300. Data glasses provide the user with additional information, such as relevant measured values, i.e., temperature, or display maintenance instructions. “The Russian pharmaceutical market is recognized as one of the biggest, but the competition is getting stronger as well. That is why we use every opportunity to strengthen our market presence in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). In this sense, the trade fair was a good opportunity to show customers the advantages of all Excellence United partner companies”, says Dmitry Zadirov, the Managing Director at OOO Pharma Union
