PHARMACEUTICAL MACHINERY MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT INDUSTRY IN VIETNAM TODAY
The pharmaceutical industry follows the most stringent requirements for manufacturing processes and used equipment also must comply with good manufacturing practices (GMP). As drug development trends change, so do manufacturing processes, much of which can now be automated. The pandemic has impacted equipment demand, the latest technologies to be leveraged in pharmaceutical device manufacturing, as well as the continued improvements and advancements made in dosage forms like solid, liquid, semisolid, injection... be created from biotechnology, single-use technology, continuous production, and digital technology.
Covid-19 is the main topic in 2021. It is a battle that challenges the world of science, apothecary technology, engineering and manufacturing techniques to quickly respond to Covid-19 variants and will continue as so for at least the next few years. The equipment must meet the increasing demand to manufacture therapeutic drugs in different forms, leading to a wide range of needs from laboratory to dispensing, finishing equipment, post-packaging inspection technology to after-sales service.
In addition to Covid-19, drugs manufactured using biotechnology, drugs that treat cancer, or rare diseases that affect only a small group of patients, are still being developed with small batch size requirements and equipment with high flexibility. This trend is accompanied by a demand for the highest quality of products and protection measures. Isolation containment technology with high exposure limit OEB4, OEB5 is becoming more and more popular. Here, the containment device has a very important task of protecting the operator from harmful substances and protecting the environment with increasing requirements.
Digitization and automation are even higher trending topics in the pharmaceutical industry. For example, the use of robots in filling operations or hazardous environments will reduce the risk of contamination from human contact. Robots offer a high degree of flexibility in manufacturing processes. Machine operators no longer need to perform repetitive tasks, which makes processes safer, more precise, more reliable. In the future, more and more robotic solutions will be used; boundaries will continue to change as costs fall and new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) will flourish, helping to reduce R&D and manufacturing. AI will predict and provide data to help us reduce the use of manual methods, compare, analyze..., increase longevity and of course, bring happiness to everyone.
In Vietnam, domestic pharmaceutical companies with private or equity capitalization are tending to change rapidly to catch up with foreign "giants", or joint ventures to produce drugs in the pharmaceutical industry. It makes machinery and equipment in the pharmaceutical industry will increase. Devices must meet the most stringent criteria, reducing human intervention in processes and operations, protecting raw data integrity, easy access, flexible batch scaling Activate and digitize important activities to ensure that the quality of batches is homogenized… To do so, the price of pills is certainly not cheap. Especially having to compete directly with external competitors with developed industry and even cheap Generic products from India, the Philippines, Pakistan... So what is the safe investment solution for the Vietnamese pharmaceutical industry when competitors flooded in with a multitude of different qualities?

The wet granulation process in two separate steps is mostly recommended and suitable for conventional equipment like the High-speed Mixer & Granulator, Fluid-bed Dryer & Granulator…
This single-step granulation process provides effervescent granules directly by granulating the acid and the alkaline materials together. It is possible to use only water as the granulating liquid, thus controlling the effervescent reaction to granulate, or using a nonreactive liquid, like absolute ethanol or isopropanol, but in this case, it is necessary to use a binder to get the agglomeration of the particles of the raw material. There are two type of equipment complying with this technology.
This dosage form is easier to administer, particularly helpful to patients, like children, who are not able to swallow capsules or tablets. However, the manufaturing of them is more complex than conventional forms, especially in selecting technology and processing equipment
