Longer life

SEPARATOR CAP Called Long Life the new eco-compatible single-dose closure, developed and produced by INGE SpA, protects dilutable substances from humidity before use. New features: a single piece, it provides a better barrier and, compared to conventional separators, requires 55% less raw material.

Pharmaceuticals & OTC, food supplements, cosmetics and personal care... The possible fields of application of the single-serve separator cap increase along with the consumers’ requirements for products that are more natural and free of preservatives, but at the same time wholesome and safe.



Produce and fill single-dose

The integrated offer of Valmatic for the cosmetics industry: new developments

Rottapharm Spa, Mil Mil, L'Oreal, Roverhair, Panzeri Diffusion, Framesi ... These are just some of the prestigious names that use the solutions developed by Valmatic (San Prospero sulla Secchia, MO), a company that offers over 20 years of propositive and high quality service on contract to the European cosmetics industry (but also to the pharma and food sectors).



Drug delivery devices

The Aptar Pharma Prescription Division unveiled its latest product innovations, developed following the indications of health professionals as well as end users of nasal sprays. They show how a dispenser and its relative components can make the difference in administering inhalable pharmaceutial products.



Nanotechnologies for packaging

A European and Italian patent

Z47AGTUBE STERILIZING SYSTEM After its development and official presentation in 2010, Scandolara continues to concentrate on a plastic tube of innovative conception that is destined to make a stir in the world of packaging and, probably, to affect both the production and consumption of pharmaceutical and/or cosmetics products: the addition of metallic silver to the mixture indeed guarantees a lasting germicidal effect, preventing contamination of the contents over time.

(Re)search for beauty

PARFUMS, COSMÉTIQUES & DESIGN The Oriex show/conference dedicated to packaging for beauty products is small, but rich with contents and prestigious brands, and ends its seventh edition with growing numbers and success for its special initiatives, not least of which its new workshops and the PCD Award 2011.

The PCD show/conference, held by Oriex in Paris (this year February 8th and 9th), resembles more and more a “quality club”. The 80 exhibitors (considerably more than the 60 of 2011) and 1,400 visitors from 40 different countries (1,200 for the last edition) in many ways represent the sector’s cream of the crop.



Longer life

SEPARATOR CAP Called Long Life the new eco-compatible single-dose closure, developed and produced by INGE SpA, protects dilutable substances from humidity before use. New features: a single piece, it provides a better barrier and, compared to conventional separators, requires 55% less raw material.

Pharmaceuticals & OTC, food supplements, cosmetics and personal care... The possible fields of application of the single-serve separator cap increase along with the consumers’ requirements for products that are more natural and free of preservatives, but at the same time wholesome and safe. A challenge this that has study centres and industry, also the packaging industry, committed to designing evermore effective barriers.
With this objective, INGE SpA - pharmaceutical and cosmetics packaging manufacturer based in Garbagnate Milanese - has developed a new type of separator, more "performant" by today's standards, which has promptly aroused the interest of the market (it has already been adopted by important phama multinationals). This is how Long Life came into being: a unique closure that on the one hand meets the demands for greater resistance to humidity, and secondly reduces by 55% the amount of polyethylene needed for the creation of the same. With a further non-secondary detail: Long Life is single piece.



All the Beauty of the world

Trend setting scents that embody all the skills of the Italian tradition; an industry that is growing and where promo events are on the increase; new tools for competing in an international context that doesn’t allow a moment’s distraction... Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna and the Accademia del Profumo Award allow a closer look as to how a segment evermore aware of its own potential is moving.

The Italian beauty industry is again on the up, having achieved more than encouraging figures. First of all in economic terms, where last year it totalled a turnover of 8,485 million euro (4.7%) driven by exports at +15% (around 2,350 million euro) which generated a trade surplus of more than 690 million euro.
But it is not only a question of turnover. The industry is also  moving proactively regarding excellence of product, communication and promotion ... But let’s start out in an orderly fashion.
As regards quality, we aboveall reiterate that Unipro has enhanced and expanded its website www.abc-cosmetici.it with a new science section dedicated to the world of research and innovation on cosmetics, edited by Profess.ssa Carla Scesa (professor of Cosmetology at the University of Siena). The section contains an overview of studies and scientific publications dedicated to advances in cosmetic research and new the scientific and technical ideas behind the same.



Efficient and customised

Automatic tubefilling machines for filling and closing tubes in aluminium, polyethylene, polyfoil, laminates. And again automatic alternate movement and continuous cartoning machines not only for packing tubes, but also for bottles, flacons, cartridges, syringes and dispensers… Without leaving out the filling lines for particular products like mascara, silicon, 2-3 color toothpastes… That is to say, their outstanding capacity to design highly customised automatic machines has for 30 years been the strongpoint of TGM Tecnomachines «that, as, sales department head Andrea Rocca states - has always counted on the ingeniousness of the concern’s founder Giancarlo Togni, a man always capable or finding a solution suited tailored to customer demands».



TECNICOLL

TECNICOLL Economic crisis, Chinese competition, continuous raw material price rises, difficulty in collecting debts…. this is the tough context in which Tecnicoll, company specialised in the design and production of cosmetic dosing, pressing and packaging machines, operates in.
The Varese (Venegono Superiore) based concern, that exports throughout the world, took part at Emballage with a positive spirit, supported by the first concrete signs of recovery and by the throng of visitors at their stand «also thanks to the intense activity of direct mailing aimed at actual and “potential” French customers».



Jeux sans frontiers

MG2 is playing the match of globalisation with imagination and shrewdness, wagering on the high worldwide reputation of Italian products: which might mean designing in Italy while producing in China, this in order to counter the price war being waged by Indians and Koreans.

What does being a player of international standing mean to MG2? It means making a 100% controlled, conditioned environment, 250 thousand capsules an hour capsule filling machine for a Swiss multinational: a system complete with CiP, that is worth millions of euro, jewel in the crown of the Emilia based concern (headquartered at Pian di Macina di Pianoro, Bologna). But it also means providing users of all sizes and from all countries with a variety of smaller and equally sophisticated dosing machines, as complex, flexible and customised as befits the conditions of use as each case has it.



Packaging Division by Curti SpA

CURTI Reasoned optimism guides Marie Anne Prat - area sales manager at Packaging Division di Curti SpA - back to having faith in the market: «Demand is on the up again, though orders are still slack. But since these days you only visit a fair if you have a serious intention to invest, and this year at Emballage the visiting public will be out in full force, I am sure orders will not be long in coming».



Luxury proposals

LUXE PACK 2010 Opportunity for updating for buyers of selective packaging from 80 countries, exhibitors on the increase, many “true” new features devised by the operators and presented at the Innovation Forum. And yet again, at Montecarlo from 20th to 22nd October last, spotlight on “sustainable” luxury, that is not a contradiction in terms but rather the expression of an advanced, environmentally aware technology. Creative packaging and its coming future was analysed by the experts of various segments who animated numerous, well-attended conferences, ranging from philosophical notes (from the ethics of luxury to the responsibility of creating “beauty” and secondly, wellbeing) and decidedly more practical themes (the growth prospects of packaging, development of the Chinese luxury market…).



From the particular to the general…

… or that is from an open house to the market. Views and certainties of an entrepreneur fully involved in a growth strategy, where business and a company culture go hand in hand.  Stefano Lavorini

We met up with Maurizio Marchesini the last day of the open house set up in the new spaces created in the “historic” works at Pianoro. Satisfied with the results and grateful for the commitment shown by his staff during the event, which lasted a week, he wished to share a positive thought - not only as an entrepreneur but also has president of Unindustria Bologna - on the dynamics of the pharma market, on the geographic and dimensional borders of the world that are very different from the past, on the condition of the Italian SMEs.



Bio beauty

The Paris perfumery and cosmetics (and related packaging) fair has decreed the Beauty Challenger Awards 2010. Theme of the year: going biological.

Guarantee of quality The Beauty Challenger Award brand that in France has aroused the interest of the general public and biological operators, upheld by the commercial success of the companies who won the awards last year (66º30, Aïny, Fleurs de Bach, Absolution).



Hair dye in 12 steps

For more than twenty years, Colomer Italy has been relying on the technology of Romaco Unipac for filling hair dye into tubes. In no way a simple task given that, among other things 388 color shades of Colomer’s lead product Revlonissimo are processed for both the Italian, European and extra-European markets. The system, integrated with a Romaco Promatic cartoner, achieves an output of up to 100 tubes per minute.

Vasco Mazzotti, Marco Mandrioli

From henna to indigo or with lead combs dipped in vinegar; the first chemical hair dye products appeared on the market at the end of the nineteenth century: practically speaking people have always loved changing their appearance by dying their hair, using a series of different products and today an estimated 40 percent of all women in industrialised countries resort to this form of beauty treatment.
The development of products for haircare is part of the skills of the Colomer Group, Barcelona, founded by the Catalan barber José Colomer in 1934. Worldwide the group employs more than 2,200 workers in five production facilities in Europe, North and Central America, and in several international sales offices.
