White Paper on Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality in Pharmaceutical Packaging

Laupheim, February 2018

Uhlmann Pac-Systeme GmbH & Co. KG addressed the issue of digitalization in pharmaceutical packaging thoroughly in 2017. This has led to future-oriented solutions such as virtual training systems or a big data application for the monitoring of pharmaceutical packaging machines, which recently won recognition in the form of an Annual Multimedia Award. The pharmaceutical packaging specialists have now summarized their expertise relating to virtual and augmented reality in a white paper. Taking practical examples as a basis, it explains how digital technology can be applied to pharmaceutical packaging and indicates which process improvements and cost savings are feasible as a result.

Data is the commodity of the 21st century. Its smart use stands for the fourth industrial revolution. “Smart factories” are also developing in the pharmaceutical sector, in which humans, machines, and products are linked on a scale unimaginable a few years ago. What specific impact can this have on pharmaceutical packaging, for instance? How can virtual reality and augmented reality applications be usefully integrated? How can production-related data be processed to gain added value – not only for individual machines, but for the entire pharmaceutical production process? As a manufacturer of pharmaceutical packaging machinery, Uhlmann is currently working on several pilot projects and practical studies. These are providing first answers to such questions – in the form of exemplary virtual reality training systems or augmented reality applications.
Uhlmann has recorded its findings and practical experience gained from the projects and offers this information to interested experts. The detailed white paper is available free of charge through the company website.
