Work preparation

Strategically oriented and flexible work preparation (WP) is a key component of the daily processes at HOF for ensuring smooth operation. WP assures the interlinking of expertise and planning in that you take over the planning of processes for strategic tasks. It guarantees that the planning, implementation and controlling of the individual work areas increase efficiency and preserve sustainability for HOF. There is an interchange with the design department and other departments, as the result of which WP experiences have already frequently contributed to improvements in the processing workflows.

Warehouse & logistics

Over 60,000 items are currently managed in the HOF warehouse. The smallest intricate components, piping materials, compressors and pumps, through to chamber containers for freezers, are kept in stock for fast reaction times for service purposes, as well as for short-notice delivery to system builders in the freezer sector. HOF strives to keep service downtimes of the supported systems down to an absolute minimum. While this is ensured with 24-hour service availability, it is just as important to have most of the commonly required system components available in stock.

The summary task of warehouse logistics is to accept the procured materials, check their usability, and pass them on to the requisitioning department as requested. In the meantime, materials that are not immediately required are stored in a practical and manageable manner.

A special aspect at HOF that needs to be mentioned is that a central communications interface is set up as a pick-up point for components. Any service employees can call up the ordered items here around the clock. In preparation for service and repair work, various project-specific items, components and documents are made available here so that the service technicians have all the necessary parts at their disposal as quickly as possible in addition to their standard equipment.

12:30 p.m. Common lunch break

1:30 p.m workshops and discussion forum

HOF SynchroFreeze: vacuum induced ice nucleation
SynchroFreeze is HOF's answer for controlled ice nucleation.
This process is characterized by a conditioning phase, followed by a cooling and a vacuum induced nucleation during the freezing process. Depending of the product, the product structure can be optimized, the drying times can be reduced and a favorable effect for the reconstitution process can be reached. Only limited machine modifications are necessary for the implementation.


Trends in the refrigeration technics:
Conformity in the context of current F-Gas regulation.
Based on the European F-Gas regulation and a corresponding requirement for reduction of the allowed HFC quantity, we have by now an availability shortage of the currently used synthetical refrigerants.
A nitrogen technology and the use of natural refrigerants are alternatives. At the same time, in the sector of the conventional refrigerant technology, it is possible to replace discontinued refrigerants by alternative refrigerants – without even elaborate system modifications.

Leaks of silicone oil:
Prevention and detection
Any leak of silicone oil means product losses and production losses. Preventively, it is possible to reach an optimized process reliability by relieving the flexible corrugated hoses of the heat transfer system. At the same time, the mass-spectrometry also enables to detect the smallest quantities of silicone oil in the drying chamber. Cyclical or continual, the implementation of this technology is flexible and secures the production.

2:30 p.m coffee break
Following the program, you will have the possibility to hold further talks or to participate in a company tour.


At the end of the workshops, we offer the opportunity to make a company tour of both HOF’s sites, in Lohra and in the adjacent Gladenbach-Mornshausen.


The event is expected to end at: 6.p.m

Besides standardized and special formats, special packaging such as dual-chamber carpules or dual-chamber syringes can be transported. At the same time, we offer an automatic loading and unloading of bulk freezer-dryers.

HOF has a correct innovative answer to all new requirements in the pharmaceutical area.
In the past, recent developments for loading and unloading systems were continually implemented, which will be explained below.

Reliability, a rapid detection of individual objects, and hygienic design are among the determining factors for the sensor technology of our machines. The latest sensor technology from stainless steel in corresponding design are our conditions for high functionality and ensures optimal cleaning and sterilization results. Furthermore, the production safety will be increased. For a potential sensor replacement, it is not necessary to teach again the positions.

With regard to the hygienic design, all machine parts were checked in classified area, so that possible high radii, the material selection and an easy disassembly have an important effect on the results in the cleaning processes.

In the future, changeover times for changing the vial sizes will be considerably reduced by means of a simplified functional design of the format parts. The format parts will be easily replaced using glove ports within a cRABS or isolator. Format parts with bottle neck guidance are implemented at particular points to increase the reliability of the production safety.

The control engineering of loading and unloading systems will prospectively use the new developments of Siemens with the scope of TIA Portal (Totally Integrated Automation Portal). In this way, the flexibility will be increased and up-to-date appropriate technical solutions are ensured.

An intuitive guidance via touchscreen, fix function keys or a combination of both - the new implemented and in the meantime standardized operating panels offer the users an optimal solution. Widescreen displays ensure an optimal overview of all plant conditions.

HOF’s loading and unloading systems dispose of modern information and communication techniques in the course of the digital revolution “Industry 4.0”. Many custom-specific requirements are fulfilled, such as evaluations of the machine, from easy motion counters through constant controls of motor speeds and moments, up to the automatic maintenance recommendation, by means of a trend program.

“It is our goal to push new developments to make every individual project as successful as possible – of course, hand in hand with our customers. Innovative and promising solutions are often already defined during the tendering stage, and are then implemented in the according system.”

Jens Gemmecker, Sales Management

Automatisierungskonzept
Automation concept

Let us introduce: our software department

Valid software is one of the most important requisites for research and production in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industry. HOF’s software department accompanies the software development from the design phase, project planning, start-up, qualification up to the service, with own software experts.

Patrick Schuhmacher

The steadily increasing requirements in terms of freeze-drying processes and documentation are a continually changing challenge for the system control. The system control does not only ensure a faultless interaction of all machine components, it also keeps records of all process data and events, to meet the requirements of the American and European health authorities.

Our control and visualization systems offer our customers a user-friendly and process-oriented operation. They are designed in a way that it is possible, to revert to existing modules, which can be adjusted without any problem to individual and specific customer requirements, especially within the projects

Professional planning

The subsequent software design planning is based on the effective design documents. At the outset of the project, the Design Document SDS (Software Design Specification) is prepared, including all annexes such as FDS (Functional Design Specification), plant alarm list and functional detail planning. During the module planning, we first find out, which existing modules are appropriate to perform the required tasks and how they can be modified if necessary. When required, module development specifications are prepared. The program development consists of adapting existing modules or creating new ones. By means of the module test, individual modules are checked, the results are recorded in the module test protocol. In the installation and integration test, the software will be implemented in the plant and the whole function is tested. The results are recorded in the software integration test plan.

Reliability, safety and service

As the last link in the chain of manufacturing, the software is responsible for control inputs and for the timely operational availability for FAT (factory approval) with the customer. To make this possible, adherence to internal manufacturing deadlines plays a central role. This also applies to the timeframe after delivery to customer-site. Start-up and qualification runs are carried out whose positive completion is essential for the successful acceptance.
At the same time, HOF pursues a continuous development of existing systems, as well as individual new development to optimize specific requirements.
It also includes a routine and accurate implementation of relevant software and hardware updates of the producers.

“Another important range of duty is our 24-hour service. When necessary, it is possible to help you immediately via Remote-PC”

Patrick Schuhmacher, Head of Software Engineering

Combined HOF unloading system with superimposed sealing machine

A new and innovative system has been developed in collaboration with a renowned pharmaceutical company. After the freeze-drying process, the vials are discharged via the HOF unloading system and are subsequently transported into the sealing machine along the unloading system. For this purpose, the system installed in the RABS (Restricted Access Barrier System) individually operates in front of the respective freeze-dryer.

Your advantages:

  • Spatially reduced RABS area
  • Simplified product handling
  • High performance
  • Shorter processing times
  • Reduced running costs

The demand for robot systems in the pharma sector shows a trend

The application areas of the robotic technologies extend from extraction systems in the bulk freeze drying sector, up to the fully automatic frame handling for individualized storage. The design in matters of function and size for the respective application is variable, so that a suitable solution can be offered.

HOF has already been implementing robot systems since 2006, amongst others for the extraction of bulk products. Furthermore it is possible to extend existing systems with robot systems or replace operator-assisted processes.

Advantages:     

  • High flexibility
  • Space saving systems 
  • Improved performance

"The expectations of new systems in regard of the local conditions and in connection with the extraction of upstream and downstream machines are extremely high. Our aim in to meet these requirements."

HOF ranks among the “TOP 100”

For the 23rd time, the event “TOP 100” awarded the most innovative medium-sized companies.
HOF previously took part in a sophisticated, scientific selection process. Innovation management and innovation success were considered.

HOF succeeded in belonging to the German innovation elite / A prize awarded by Mr. Ranga Yogeshwar, the "TOP 100" mentor.

For the 23rd time, the event "TOP 100" awarded the most innovative medium-sized companies. HOF previously took part in a sophisticated, scientific selection process. Innovation management and innovation success were considered. On 24 June, in the city of Essen, the mentor of the innovation competition, Mr. Ranga Yogeshwar, a famous german television moderator and scientific journalist, honored the top innovator within this German medium-sized companies Summit.

Every machine is unique

"Just in time quality for demanding customers" - that's the motto of HOF Sonderanlagenbau GmbH. The company is also specialized in the production of individual freeze drying systems for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and does not deliver any off-the-shelf products; it provides special equipment. In the category "innovative processes and organization", HOF as a special equipment manufacturer, is excellently positioned: its management, its quality management, its software development and its mechanical and electrical engineering departments work closely together. Almost every machine which is delivered by HOF is unique or it is a new development, because it is exactly agreed with the customer and manufactured to meet its specific requirements. Before concluding the contract, HOF receives a comprehensive requirement specification. The processes used for the project execution and realization are precisely defined and are certified according to ISO 9001.

Making decisions together

In this TOP 100 competition, the company could particularly score with its remarkable processes. In order to select the best proposals, the heads of departments regularly meet outside business hours. During the meetings, they decide together in details how to master the challenges and which new technologies can be taken up. The meetings are held once a quarter and often take four to four and a half hours. So that these ideas don't bog down, they are always monitored by external advisors, which keep hold and follow-up on all relevant ideas.

Nothing is left to chance

Before the company management gives it green light for an innovation, it is ensured that all aspects have been exactly checked by every department. The focus will be on the short-term profit, but also on the long-term and future output, which may be connected with this innovation. Also it is important to master together new technological challenges, such as controlled nucleation. New solutions found by the team are immediately checked in-house: in the company's own application laboratory, in which multi-purpose experiments can be made. For this special equipment manufacturer, innovations in the field of freeze-drying are not left to chance; they are prepared and structured methodically.

The company management invested 40 percent of working time in innovations. Last year, the staff submitted 150 improvement suggestions. 85 percent of the ideas were implemented.

This year, more than 4,000 companies showed interest in participating to the "TOP 100" event. 366 of them applied for the qualifying round. 284 of them reached the final round. 238 finally made a leap forward in the TOP 100 (maximal 100 in each of the three size categories). The companies were assessed again by Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke and his team from the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation of Vienna University of Economics. They assessed 100 parameters in five assessment categories like "Innovation-oriented Top Management", "Climate of Innovation", "Innovative Processes and Organization", "Innovation Marketing / outward orientation" and "Innovation success".

In their sector, the TOP 100 rank among "the pacemakers". This is confirmed by the following figures analysis: among the companies, there are 97 national market leaders and 32 global market leaders.

 

"A close cooperation is made with our quality and improvement management to discuss, document and follow-up our ideas"

The HOFs Family

Investment for the future: high-grade systems

Process safety, maximum plant availability, high performance, flexibility, valid software, the best service and a long service life…

Process safety, maximum plant availability, high performance, flexibility, valid software, the best service and a long service life…

... are only a sample of arguments that speak in favor of a HOF system. Our company has more than 28 years of experience in freeze-drying. Currently, over 260 qualified and motivated employees work at our two sites in Lohra and Gladenbach-Mornshausen.

Our systems are designed to meet the state of the art as long as possible and can be easily upgraded or modernized in a later stage. A great attention is being paid to the strict selection of our suppliers to obtain the highest quality possible for each part. All components are manufactured at HOF, from the plant piping, the switch cabinet and the shelves, up to the machine unit of the freeze-dryer. Yearly maintenances of existing plants guarantee a longer service life. Our service department is available 365 days, 24 hours a day, on call and in case of emergency. Our large spare parts inventory ensures that important components are available in case of failure. To some extent, it is also possible to retrieve some parts which are discontinued by the suppliers.

Within the scope of a retrofit of HOF systems or machines from other manufacturers, latest technologies are developed to be seamlessly integrated into the existing systems. Many aspects, such as energy optimization, operability and compliance with standards are taken into account. In connection with the extensions of freeze drying systems, we offer our innovative loading and unloading systems for automated charging. All necessary adaptations, from the plant cleaning (CIP), the shelves, the main door, up to the control, can be performed.

Another example is the modernization of the machine unit. HOF offers the latest technologies such as a conversion to halogen-free natural refrigerants with respect to the current F-Gases regulation.
For a maximum system security, all modules, such as the condenser or the piping system, can be replaced.

The control and visualization systems of HOF freeze-dryers offer a wide range of individual setting options to achieve different tasks and always target the high requirements of our customers. Our objective is that the existing machines meet the state-of-the-art. To make the grade and make it possible, project migration and program updates of existing machines are made.

Let us introduce you: our electrical engineering department

Our electrical engineering department is associated with the mechanical engineering and development departments.

Abteilungsleiter: Jürgen Gaul

Let us introduce to you: our electrical engineering department

In the following article, we are pleased to present you our electrical engineering department.
Our electrical engineering department is associated with the mechanical engineering and the development departments. The key tasks consist of the design development and improvement of the electro-technical parts for our Freeze-Drying Systems, Loading and Unloading Systems, Freeze-Thaw Units and Leak-Detection Systems of our affiliated company HOF Prüfsysteme GmbH. Another main task is to plan upgrades and maintenance of existing systems of HOF or of other manufacturers.

HOF employees create GMP and standard compliant circuit documents needed for the construction, qualification and documentation of systems. Specifically, plant overviews, wiring diagrams, terminal diagrams, cable diagrams and parts lists are issued. Inspection plans for VDE measurements (VDE=German Electrical Engineering Association) made on the equipment and inspection plans for safety technology resulting from the risk analysis are also created.

Safety systems for freeze dryers are developed in accordance with the current guidelines and in close collaboration with the public monitoring institutions.

HOF control systems are designed and constructed so that they are safe and reliable to avoid any dangerous situation. It must be pointed out that they withstand any service conditions and external effects.

In a risk analysis, each danger point is identified by HOF departments (kind of danger, probability and extent) with the objective that, for each risk, a performance level PLr (required level of safety function) is determined. All safety-related parts (electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, mechanical) are considered, regardless of the technology and energy used.

Furthermore, all other risks resulting from the use in the drying of solvent based products (ATEX) or biologically active products which might have influence on the protection of people, environment, product and machine, are considered, case-by-case, and are implemented in a conceptual framework.

HOF systems are safe and reliable: these are decisive features which are repetitively tested and targeted.

Another important aspect is the efficient use of energy and its optimization. The energy expenditure of consumers is recorded, analyzed and adapted with appropriate measures, by way of example to the process speed frequency optimization, start-up behavior or use of wasted heat through heat recovery. Our other aims are to comply with motors efficiency ratings (IE 3 / IE 4) and to improve them.

Fields of development currently focus on remote diagnosis and process-oriented video recording.
