150 Years of Packaging History

In 2011, Bosch has multiple anniversaries to celebrate: the company’s 125th anniversary,  the 150th birthday of its founder, Robert Bosch, and — for the Packaging Technology division — 150 years of packaging history. The beginnings of the German packaging machine industry date back to 1861 when the Hesser company was founded, later taken over by Bosch. We are proud to present this time-line, detailing Bosch’s 150 years of roots in the packaging  industry.




Advantages of Bosch GKF 2500 as compared to the GKF 1200/1500

GKF 2500

It’s no secret that the GKF 1500 is a robust, tried and true capsule filling machine proven by continued use in our  industry. The current model, the GKF 2500, has proven worthy to follow in these footsteps. With a new design comes an advantage – efficiency – not more-with-less but more-with-more. More speed with more bores running more cycles per minute. More user friendly set-up, more accessibility with a more GMP-minded design. More filling options, more  flexibility, and more yield. …more

Small businesses, in particular, welcome the new Bosch capsule filling machine Capsylon GKF705

GKF 705

The new capsule filling machine Capsylon GKF705 has been on the market since May 2010.  It thus completes the cost-optimized Capsylon machine family, consisting of the Capsylon 705 (up to 42,000 capsules/h), Capsylon 1505 (up to 92,000 capsules/h) and Capsylon 3005 (up to 175,000 capsules/h). Thanks to the excellent reputation of the already established Bosch GKF models, the first orders were placed in a very short time. Several Capsylon 705s, which produce up to 42,000 capsules an hour, were ordered for dietary supplement and health care products as well as pharmaceutical products.
