Three solutions by Dott. Bonapace, a company based in Cusano Milanino (Milan) that became part of the Marchesini Group in 2021, will also be on display at Open Door Pharma (2-6 May). Dott. Bonapace specializes in laboratory machines used for Research and Development and small industrial production of consumables.

The three Dott. Bonapace technologies on show will consist of an IN-CAP automatic filling machine, which can process up to 3,000 capsules/hour and is designed to proportion different products (such as powders, liquids and tablets) in the same capsule, with up to twenty possible combinations; a CPR-18 rotary tablet press for R&D labs and small batch production; and finally a Turbo-Mek 10 turbo-emulsifier for processing liquid and creamy products in labs and small-scale production.

Formerly a historic Lombardy-based pharmacy founded in 1872 and then a small manufacturer of machinery for galenic products, Dott. Bonapace was founded in 1946. Over the following decades, three generations of the Bonapace family helped transform the founder’s dream into a pharmaceutical company capable of meeting the needs of over 5,000 customers worldwide, including ministries of health and state-owned enterprises in many countries. This success story “from the bottom up” reflects the passion and dedication of Marchesini Group, which started out in a garage in Pianoro (Bologna) and over the course of 45 years has become one of the world’s leading players in the packaging business, with 2,500 employees and a turnover of 490 million euros.
