Coronavirus Affects Our Italy based Manufacturers

Man caught in quarantine zone. Caught by epidemy in quarantine tent. Concept of pandemy

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency and the Italian government provisions to contain the spread of the virus are affecting many business operations.

At Fedegari, to date, we are continuing manufacturing operations, although with some limitations due to the absence of some employees and a slowdown in supplies. The Group’s goal is to minimize the risk of total closure.

For this reason, we have organized our services as follows:

• Our commercial support is active: to reduce physical contacts, we will be organizing video conferences with customers and all involved parties, regardless of location.

• After-sales support is active: we will support customers with physical interventions, where it is still possible and safe to travel, sending staff from those locations that can still operate; we cannot send staff to areas subject to quarantine periods. Our Customer Service support is always available by phone; if necessary, we invite you to open a ticket through our website (https://fedegari.com/post-vendita-ticket/ and we will contact you in the shortest possible time.

• Factory Acceptance Tests are carried out regularly: all scheduled FATs are being overseen by Fedegari staff and properly documented so that the machines can be shipped on schedule. We are preparing a specific procedure to ensure customers that the testing operations of their machines will take place as if they were present.

If any customer deems it necessary to physically participate in the FAT, they will be expected to adhere to our company’s current safety protocols before we can proceed.

Fedegari cannot, however, accept the postponement of any scheduled FATs and the subsequent shipment of any machines due to this current state of emergency. Considering unpredictable circumstances and the possible introduction of more restrictive provisions, please note that the situation may change with short notice.

We will keep you informed of any future developments.

We thank you in advance for your understanding of the global emergency we are experiencing, and we assure you of our commitment and determination to return to normal business operations as soon as possible.

The New Home of Bonfiglioli Engineering

The project for the relocation of Bonfiglioli Engineering was initiated with a preliminary evaluation and a series of surveys and geological tests designed to analyze the soil and subsoil of the structure.

From the structural point of view, a safety and vulnerability assessment was carried out for each structural block, subject to a monitoring campaign and invasive, but not destructive tests by a specialist authorized laboratory.

The positive findings of these surveys led to the beginning of the projection of the restructuring of the building. Both, the production area and the office zones were subject to restoration.

The production area which has been designed in collaboration with Specialized Consultants, is based on the principles of Lean Manufacturing, to greatly improve production efficiencies, eliminate wastes and reduce costs.

The area designated to offices has been designed with particular attention to the wellness, health, and safety of all employees. The most advanced approaches have been used to modernize & restructure the building in terms of eco-sustainability, heating systems with zero methane consumption and use of solar panels.

The new site also boasts of a large warehouse and an exclusive showroom, displaying machinery and containers, dedicated to clients. The location is very close to the highway, which presents opportunities for economies of scale with respect to logistics & transport.

This move comes with the objective of upgrading and optimizing production to meet the ever-growing demands of client partners.

FCIS – PHARMACEUTICAL ISOLATOR

Fedegari has decided to develop the FCIS pharmaceutical isolator to offer its customers a process machine capable of:

  • Ensure maximum safety in the handling and dosing phases of active ingredients and high potent substances.
  • To ensure continuity of sterility when unloading from a sterilizer.
  • To ensure aseptic filling in the production of sterile drugs.

The FCIS unit physically separates the operator – who works in a class C or D EU cGMP (ISO7, ISO8 US cGMP ) environment – from the work chamber that ensures a class A Eu cGMP (ISO5 US cGMP ) environment. The isolator complies with FDA , EMA and WHO standards and associated pharmacopeias as well as all applicable EN standards and directives.

The FCIS pharmaceutical isolator has a side door for the passage of material and to remove any waste after the process. To avoid false positives, a standard FHPV peroxide generator is supplied, thanks to which it is possible to launch a cycle of chemical decontamination of the work surfaces before starting to use FCIS. This allows you to be sure of working in an aseptic environment.

Fedegari has installed on FCIS the same solution that is provided in the FCDV decontamination pass-boxes because the reliability of third-party generators was judged insufficient. A further advantage of the Fedegari peroxide generator is that it does not require proprietary consumables, reducing the running costs of the machine.

Thanks to the presence of sensors in the chamber, the concentration of the hydrogen peroxide vapor are directly monitored in real-time by the Thema4 process controller (against the estimate that is generally carried out by others) and remain constant in the chamber, ensuring certainty of results and repeatability of the process.

VERSA CAP – VERSATILE CAPPING MACHINE

This high-performance straight through capper is designed to handle a wide range of cap shapes and sizes. It is easy to run, easy to adjust and uses a minimum of components to provide versatile, high-quality capping. The Versa Cap is designed for rapid change over by using a minimum of capsize change parts. One sorter, chute, and adjustable chute end can handle most caps in either the 13-38mm or 38-70mm size range. A simple quick-change adjustable chute end that snaps into position without tools is needed for each major capsize variation.

Cushioned gripper belts are adjustable to move containers of nearly any size and shape smoothly through the capping operation without the need for timing stars or feed screws. Caps are positioned from a chute in the cap escapement assembly, picked up by the container neck finish and positioned for tightening. An independently driven overhead assembly with matching sets of polyurethane discs assures tight capping. The first set of discs gives caps a quick initial twist. The next set of discs draws the cap onto the container neck. The cap sorter, tightening discs, and machine/conveyor are controlled through three electronically controlled variable speed drives.

The Versa Cap is designed for rapid change over by using a minimum of capsizing change parts. One sorter, chute, and adjustable chute end can handle most caps in either the 13- 38mm or 38-70mm size range. A simple quick-change adjustable chute end that snaps into position without tools is needed for each major capsize variation.

The Versa Cap can be used as a mono-capper in conjunction with any high-speed Cozzoli rotary filler in a monoblock design. Combined drives and controls result in a compact, space-saving, cost-efficient filler/capper combination which is easy to operate, changeover and maintain. Snap capping, overcapping, and fitment inserting can also be readily accomplished on the versatile Versa Cap

The Torqo 1600 Accessories

The Torqo 1600 is easy to use, easy to set up, easy to move and low maintenance! Tooling is available for any threaded closure – including child resistant caps – and this compact unit delivers and stores precise results at the touch of a button.

It now comes pre-equipped with Universal Torqo Chuck, As an increased variety of closure designs have gained prominence and popularity in the industry, Mesa Labs has developed a new Universal Chuck to accommodate multiple serration patterns and cap sizes with a single change part.

The torqo can be fitted with the all new Model 1506 Beverage Bottle Clamp is a quick-acting bottle holding device that can be easily adjusted to accommodate from 10 oz. to 3 liter bottle sizes.

The Model 1624 Quick Clamp Vise is an easy to use bottle holding fixture that combines the flexibility of a lead screw pin vise with the rapid loading and unloading of an over-center type clamp. This vise is capable of holding round bottles from 5/8-inch diameter to 6 inch diameter and square bottles from 5/8-inch to 6 inch. Short and long pins are available.

The 1626 Slide Chuck can be used to torque test roll-on-pilfer proof (ROPP) caps which are commonly used to package product in the alcoholic beverage and wine industries. The unique jaw sets allow the chuck to grip the rolled on serration patterns of the cap in order to perform both destructive and non-destructive torque testing.

The Yoke Chuck extends our testing capabilities beyond the average continuous thread and Child-Resistant closures. This chuck can accommodate unusually tall and odd-shaped closures such as finger tip sprayers/pumps and trigger sprayers/pumps which are commonly used in the pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetic industries. The unique interchangeable jaw sets allow the chuck to grip virtually any serration patterns for cap diameters up to ~100mm.

With a 1507 Calibration Kit, the accuracy of your Torqo can be verified or a complete on-site calibration can be performed by the user. Contained in this kit is a precision Calibration Disk, a ball bearing load support assembly and the necessary hardware to use this kit. The weights required for performing a calibration are not included in the kit but may be purchased from Mesa Laboratories, Inc.

And one of the most demanded Torqo Accessories is the Child Resistant Closure Option.

The Model 1605 Child Resistant Closure Option enables the Torqo to be used for measuring the removal torque on the child-resistant type cap that requires a downforce in order to be opened. An air supply with the ability to provide a minimum of 60 PSI is required for this option. Both an air filter and an adjustable air regulator are contained in this kit and permanently mounted to the drive cover. The installation of this option on a Torqo does not affect in any way its use on conventional bottles and caps.

To find out more about the Torqo 1600 or the available accessories, please give us a call at 800-829-5741.
