The pharmaceutical Industry has gone through several changes recently. With more and more uncertainty, the companies dealing in this sector have to follow the guidelines and regulations, all the while practicing utmost care while presenting their products. The major players in the sector are actively investing in models that give them the best performance and expecting the efficiency from their packaging models which move beyond the compliance guidelines.
Some of the key indicators that the companies expect from their machines are:
- Less Loading time
- Valuable operating time
Let’s explore some of the machines in detail:
Liquid filling line Machines
Liquid Filling Machine occupying models are synchronized together in a liquid packaging to a container. These are used for a variety of purposes such as eye drops, vials, syrup, liquid soaps, sanitizers, and many related items. This assembly can be customized according to the product as some of the liquid might be free-flowing and some might be viscous. As a general principle, the assemblies are mostly equipped with unscrambler, nitrogen occupying; liquid occupying, stoppering, pre-closing, & closing model become a complete eye drop processing appliance. Also some of the common liquid occupying appliances are gravity led loaders, piston loaders, pump filers, in line fill appliance, rotary appliances etc.
Powder filling unit
Powder filling unit occupyingappliances are regarded highly for their reliability and efficiency of packing of dry powder. The powder appliance can be fully automated or can be semi-automatic like the Auger appliance. The use of powder filling instrument depends on the filters used, the auger uses completely drip free and cup filling system. The powder stuffing used by the servo motor provides an accurate occupying of powder.
Capsule filling Unit
A capsule occupyinginstrument comes in the assembly of Granulation, Stuffing, Polishing, Inspection, Counting, Capping and Labeling instruments. These instruments are quite popular because of their versatility. The main use of these instrument is to load empty container with substances, that are either medicinal or require care while loading.
Tablet Inspection unit
The main thing about pharmaceutical business is that the work needs to be done with hygiene and utmost care. With hundreds of tablets being manufactured daily, businesses need to develop a sense of responsibility, and also to maintain the quality of the product, this inspection equipment provides a better judgment. The tablet automatically goes through the conveyor belt with variable speed and protects from dust. There appears to be two types of popular equipment, one which comes with manual inspection and the other with mechanical sorting, there is also an automatedequipment which has a higher rate of inspection and better chances of maintaining sanitation.
Capping Machine equipment seals the cap of the container and helps from damage or spillage. This instrument comes with high speed torque and helps in faster manufacturing of the product. A spindle capping model tightens a wide variety of screw and lug type caps and closures onto containers and the speed can go as high as 300 caps per minute.
Mostly, pharmaceutical companies use strip for packing their tablets. They are small, lightweight, and secure and protected from any type of impurities unless broken. This instrument puts the product in a heat resistant film and seals it thoroughly. Coated and uncoated tablets, soft gelatin containers, hard gelatin containers etc. are packed and ready to ship with strip packing.
