Cosmetics industry

With a global value of hundreds of billions of dollars per year, the cosmetics industry is a significant one to many economies. The highly automated processes used to produce skincare and hair care products, make-up, perfumes, toiletries and deodorants require reliable, high-quality manufacturing equipment.

Minebea Intec is a leading supplier of such equipment, offering industrial weighing solutions of every sort and a wide range of dosing, formulation, sorting, filling and packing solutions. Metal detection and X-ray inspection equipment is also supplied.

A reliable partner for quality control and process equipment for the cosmetics industry

Minebea Intec has many years of experience in the development and manufacturing of innovative production and quality assurance equipment for weighing and foreign body detection purposes. Much of this experience has been in cosmetics industry applications, where quality control plays a vital role in ensuring product safety and quality while also maximising the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of production processes.

Hygienic considerations such as cleanability are at the forefront of the design process for equipment for such applications, and high-quality materials such as stainless steel are used to ensure corrosion resistance. Precision is also of importance, and all solutions offer IP protection and explosion protection. Ease of calibration is also standard, as is ease of integration in existing processes and compatibility as well as connectivity with different data processing systems.

As a reliable partner of cosmetics manufacturers around the world, Minebea Intec invests heavily and constantly in testing and certification in accordance with various national and international standards and regulations, such as

  • for materials and products: EHEDG/FDA/HACCP/IFS/EAC/AAA/NSF
  • for Ex applications (explosion protection): ATEX/FM/CSA/IECEx/EAC
  • for calibration: OIML/NTEP
  • for ingress protection (IP): up to IP69k
  • for manufacturing: Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP) – e.g. to FDA 21 CFR

We also ensure compliance, in relation to electronic records and electronic signatures, with FDA 21 CFR Part 11.

We are thus well prepared to meet the widely varying needs of cosmetics manufacturers – and, of course, to provide the associated quality documentation that might be required for any application.
