Interpack: Tableting and packing from a single source

An integrated solution for manufacturing and packing pharmaceutical solids will make its debut at the Romaco Group booth in Hall 16, Stand D15

The HM 1-230 ensures premium sealing quality by adapting the specimen seals to the characteristics of each individual product

An integrated solution for manufacturing and packing pharmaceutical solids will make its debut at the Romaco Group booth in Hall 16, Stand D15. Parallel to this, Romaco Kilian will present its new KTP 420X high speed tablet press with the patented in-line CWC scale and a new patented solution for PAT measuring sensors. Flexible primary and secondary packaging solutions from Noack, Promatic and Macofar will also be exhibited by Romaco.

Romaco claims to be the first manufacturer worldwide to offer integrated solutions for manufacturing and packing tablets and effervescents for the pharmaceutical industry, thanks to the combined expertise of the Kilian, Siebler and Promatic brands.

The new Kilian KTP 420X high speed tablet press will be shown in line with a Siebler HM 1-230 strip packaging machine. This combination facilitates a continuous production process with more consistent product quality compared with offline operation.

Thanks to the direct line integration, there is no need to store fragile effervescent tablets in a buffer container. At the same time, the products are effectively protected from contaminants in the ambient air. When hooked up to a Promatic cartoner, the system can process up to 900 strip packs a minute.

The versatile Kilian KTP 420X high speed tablet press is ideal for the production of mono-layer, bi-layer or core tablets (tab-in-tab), and can also be used to compress poorly flowing materials. The finished tablets are fed to the sealing station of the Siebler HM 1-230 in up to16 lanes either via a direct connection to the heat-sealing machine or via a buffer bin. The servo-controlled separation of the tablets guarantees high feed rates and precise product positioning in the strip packs.

The HM 1-230 ensures premium sealing quality by adapting the specimen seals to the characteristics of each individual product. The blend of Kilian and Siebler technologies means fewer start-up processes on the tablet press and reduces tablet waste and wearing parts to a minimum.

The Kilian STYL’ONE single-stroke tablet press is ideal for R&D applications

The free-standing Romaco Kilian KTP 420X high speed tablet press for applications in pharma manufacturing will be highlighted. The latest series of this successful machine incorporates several unique new features. The patented CWC (Continuous Weight Control) system, for example, enables tablet weight data to be gathered in-line as the products are pressed.

Due to the hermetic separation of the compaction and service areas, no product or oil gets into the machine compartment of the press. The optimised hygienic design permits quick and easy cleaning. Operating and maintenance staff additionally profit from the reduction in press noise.

The Kilian STYL’ONE single-stroke tablet press is ideal for R&D applications and for producing clinical batches. It can be supplied as a mono-layer or multilayer press and will be demonstrated by Romaco at Interpack for the first time with a concept study of in-line quality data acquisition, marking another big step towards process analytical technology (PAT).

The patented measuring sensor in the pressing tool of the Kilian STYL’ONE allows tablet quality data to be gathered in-line as the products are pressed. The specially designed ANALIS software generates a detailed analysis of the compression process. Tests carried out with very small product quantities deliver extremely precise results. The machine is suitable for all tablet types and compresses up to five layers with five different components.

The Romaco Noack 960 series represents an optimal solution for pharmaceutical manufacturers and contract packers operating on a global scale

With its balcony structure, the Romaco Noack 960 series represents an optimal solution for pharmaceutical manufacturers and contract packers operating on a global scale. For the first time, the interchangeable QuickFeed unit enables parallel operating steps instead of sequential. Thanks to the patented technology, product changes are completed in less than 30 minutes. When teamed up with the Romaco Promatic PC 4250 continuous motion cartoner, the Noack 960 Blister System has a packaging capacity of up to 700 blisters and 420 cartons a minute.

The Romaco Macofar LF 200 FD is a high speed machine for filling pharmaceutical liquids into bottles

The Romaco Macofar LF 200 FD is a high speed machine for filling pharmaceutical liquids into bottles. It is equipped with two closing stations and is capable of handling a wide range of closure types, guaranteeing maximum flexibility. Suitable for glass and plastic containers 16 to 80 millimetres in diameter and 35 to 200 millimetres in height with a filling volume of 0.5 to 500 millilitres, the Macofar LF 200 FD is the ideal solution for high speed filling of sprays, nose and ear drops as well as ophthalmics and orally administered syrups. All parts of the machine are optimally accessible and simple to clean.
