Olbrich Logo

With over 40 years of experience, OLBRICH is a global medical and pharmaceutical film coating and laminating equipment leader. OLBRICH knows your high demands in this area very well. That is why they have specialized in the design and manufacturing of machines for clean room applications – with safe, validated processes. The focus is on the simple hygienic cleaning of your systems, right up to the latest “Cleaning In Place” (CIP) solutions.

OLBRICH’s guarantee: OLBRICH selects all materials for your machines according to the strict specifications of the “Good Manufacturing Practice” guidelines (GMP) and consider approvals of the American “Food and Drug Administration” (FDA) as well as European organizations.

With coating systems from OLBRICH, you can rely on the highest precision: Our components are accurate to within a thousandth of a millimeter and enable maximum reproducibility. Various coating processes for different medical films are possible.

The working widths of our coating systems are between 125 and 2,000 millimeters, the production speeds between 0.1 and 100 meters per minute. Our machines are particularly easy to clean, so you benefit from a favorable ratio between production and cleaning times.

With OLBRICH you can rely on scalable, safe and validated processes for coating your medical films – from transdermal systems to oral films. However, coatings containing active ingredients are also possible for other applications, for example in the fields of wound treatment and diagnostics.
