Romaco Launches Blister and Micro Dosing Machines At Pharmtech 2011
Published: November 15th, 2011
On show at Pharmtech 2011 in Moscow, Russia, the blister packaging machine Noack N
921 boasts a packaging performance of up to 500 blisters a minute. The GMP-compliant Macofar Micro 18 micro dosing machine produces a maximum output of 18,000 vials an hour, the company said in a statement.
The main characteristics of the Noack N 921 are a minimum of required space and maximum efficiency. The rotary sealing machine features an ergonomic design with a length of less than four meters. Balcony design and servo drives improve product safety
and harmonize all mechanical movements. The patented feeding unit
QuickFeed enables product changes within seconds. Tool-free format changeover
marks another advantage especially for small batch sizes.
The Noack N 921 offers flexibility for blister layout and batch
size for tablets, soft or hard gelatine capsules, and oblongs. Transfers of
the blisters is optionally carried out laterally or parallel to the running
direction for realizing all possible line configurations. QuickAdjust
automatically adjusts the run of the blister foils at the coding, perforation and
cutting stations. During production, laser detectors immediately compensate for
deviations due to different materials.. The combination with a continuous Promatic cartoner results in a highly automated line concept.
The Macofar Micro 18 monobloc micro dosing machine fills sterile pharmaceutical powders into vials. Vials are guided through the filling, weighing, and stoppering stations of the intermittent system on integrated star wheels. The product is dosed by means
of a vacuum pressure-assisted system. Before, during, and after filling, the
vials can be flushed with nitrogen. A drying unit reduces the humidity in the
critical filling area, while the vertical laminar flow assures sterile conditions for
filling and dosing into the vials.
