Achema 2024: Marchesini Group celebrates 50 years of innovation

One of the most anticipated events for chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotechnological companies worldwide is returning: Achema 2024. This edition, scheduled from June 10th to 14th, will be a special occasion for Marchesini Group, as it celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. In addition to showcasing a wide selection of machines and production lines for the pharmaceutical industry, the Group will invite visitors to join the celebrations and reflect on the future together, sharing new ideas and projects. 

The G3 stand – Hall 3.1 will host several solutions produced by various Group divisions, including an absolute novelty designed to enhance the performance of companies specialised in the production of injectable sterile medicines. It is a line under isolator for sterile filling, capping, and coding of vials of various sizes, designed to be extremely fast: the line can produce up to 500 pieces per minute with 100% IPC. The line will be unveiled to the public on the first day of the event, June 10th, with an official presentation to the press and industry experts scheduled for 12 o’clock.

In addition to this innovation developed by the Aseptic division, the Group will also exhibit several machines produced by the Pharma Process and Pharma Laboratory divisions, perfectly compliant with the rigorous Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards. The stand will also feature two monoblocks, one for packaging solid products and one for powdered products: the first consists of a blister machine, equipped with the SEA Vision Line Clearance system, and a cartoner with an integrated Track & Trace module; the second is a compact solution for powder filling with 100% weight control, developed by M.A.R, the latest brand to join the Group. 

New additions from the Pharma Packaging division showcased at the stand include a line for packaging and labeling injection pens, featuring a robotic island that precisely and flexibly positions the pens inside a paper tray. This tray, internally designed by the R&D department, features a functional design that enables significant savings in paper and glue (-50% compared to traditional models on the market).

Finally, there will be a corner dedicated to the Digital area featuring the latest innovations in digital transformation and artificial intelligence, including the “Morpheus” predictive maintenance solution, augmented reality format changeover, and the latest technologies related to robotic applications. 

50 years of history with a constant focus on the future

Marchesini Group closed 2023 with 591 million in revenue, marking a +15% increase compared to 2022. In 2024, the Group plans to consolidate its strategic assets, maintaining the same trend as the previous year and aiming for further growth. “To achieve these objectives and best prepare for the challenges that lie ahead, we will continue to invest in robotics, vision systems, and artificial intelligence,” comments Pietro Cassani, CEO of Marchesini Group. “Building the future together also means focusing on youth and education, continuing to travel and export ideas and innovations worldwide. In recent months, we have opened new branches in South America, Asia, and North Africa, ensuring an even more impactful presence in over 116 countries worldwide. Our 100% made in Italy production remains entirely in Italy, where we are strengthening production by initiating expansion works at some of our facilities in Tuscany, Lombardy, and Emilia-Romagna”.
