The CTE450 is also highly energy-efficient, compact and incorporates full Newman ‘validation-friendly’ specifications.

At the infeed, cartons are separated, held between top and bottom belts, past the Print and Inspect station where Serialised codes can be printed and then verified by a Vision system. Cartons are then transported past two stepper motor-driven label stations. Labels are dispensed on to the overhanging vertical faces of the carton and applied with a roller. Airplane and reverse tuck formats can be accommodated. Cartons proceed to the sensing station where sensors detect label presence prior to wipe down. Both labels must be present for a carton to be accepted; if not, it is ejected into a secure reject area

Fedegari BIO-DECONTAMINATION UNIT – FCDV

With the FCDV bio-decontamination unit you can bring inside the clean rooms all those products and instruments that cannot be thermally sterilized. Surface bio-decontamination of the load is carried out with vaporized hydrogen peroxide – H2O2.

Among the most reliable sporicidal agents, vaporized hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is nowadays one of the most popular: its antibacterial, antimycotic and antiviral properties are well known and scientifically documented.

This solution is becoming increasingly relevant as the regulators shift their focus away from traditional moist- and dry-heat sterilization processes to address all other bioburden risks. Moreover, Fedegari has applied the Quality-by-design concept to the development of this innovative process equipment, in order to meet the current approach required by the EMA and FDA.

DESIGN & TECHNICAL FEATURES

  • Stainless steel AISI 316L chamber polished to strict sanitary standards (Ra <0.4μm).
  • Doors are made of AISI 316L stainless steel with a central glass panel

Invest in a Filling Machine? Good Idea?

Purchasing an automatic liquid filling machine to bring your packaging in-house can provide numerous advantages. Packaging and filling machine manufacturers make this opportunity possible for any business interested in investing in their own packaging solution.

Today, there are now many different types of packaging and filling equipment for sale to choose from. So how do you choose which automatic liquid filling machine is right for your production needs?

To begin, it’s best to learn more about what sets the different types of filling machinery apart, which you can read more about below. If you would like to speak with a contract packaging and filling company directly about the automatic filling solutions we have available, be sure to contact LF of America for more information.

Types of Packaging and Filling Machines

Packaging and filling machines vary depending on the sort of materials they are designed to handle. You’ll need to make sure you look for packaging machine manufacturers that make the sort of equipment designed for the type of products you will be filling, such as liquids, solids, gels, or powders. 

Packaging and filling equipment can be broken down into a few sub-categories, including bottle filling equipment, labeling machinery, and automatic capping machines. An automatic liquid filling machine can also be designed to handle specific packaging types, such as unit dose packaging or blister packaging.

Automatic Liquid Filling Machine

LF of America provides a wide array of contract packaging solutions suited for various purposes and industries. We are proud to be regarded as innovative industry leaders among packaging machine manufacturers both nationally and globally.

Our available automatic liquid filling machine is capable of handling batch sizes from small and medium to full-size production. Whether it’s for diagnostic products, OTC pharmaceuticals, or something else entirely, companies that choose to invest in their own in-house packaging solution do so to gain control of their production.

The Pentafill A25 is capable of filling up to 25 vials per minute for containers that range in size from 0.33 – 1 ml. For 2 – 10 ml containers, it is capable of filling as many as 23 vials per minute.

Companies are embracing the incredible value of investing in an in-house filling machine more and more. Packaging machine manufacturers like ourselves help to ensure your investment is a worthwhile, lasting choice.

Program Your Torque Tester and Get Two Peak Values?

If you would like to program your torque tester and be able to get two distinctive peak torque values (thread break torque and Tamper Evident Band (TEB) break torque), the ST-120S or the ST-S3 torque testers can be programmed as follows:

  1. Associate a product name with the test recipe.
  2. Set the test mode to “Release”.
  3. Set the cycle count to 2. In the first cycle, the machine will measure the peak of the thread break. In the second cycle, the machine will measure the peak of the tamper-evident band (TEB) break.
  4. On the second “Test Setting” screen, set the “rotation speed” to 20rpm, the “release torque limit” to 20lbfin, the “starting torque” to 10%, the “torque ramp” to 30s, and the “method” to the rotation.
  5. Set the “rotation limit” to 250 degrees. Starting with a tight cap (applied torque >10lbfin), the thread break torque can be measured under 30 degrees. However, there is a single rotation limit setting, so the torque limit should be set reasonably close to the peak of the TEB break torque. After a few experimental cycles, the desired rotation limit is 200-250 degrees.
  6. To give the operator time for manually documenting the thread break (1st cycle), go in the Setup/Timers submenu and set the “New Cycle” delay to 5s.
  7. Alternatively, when a computer is capturing data from the machine the new cycle delay can be set to 00:00:50 (500ms).
