At this year’s FCE Pharma in São Paulo, Brazil, the Romaco Group will show highlights from its packaging and processing sectors.

The compact Noack DPN 760 blister packaging machine unites high system availability with excellent value for money. MZ toothed colloid mills from FrymaKoruma offer efficient processes for the highest product quality. The tablet and capsule counting machine Bosspak RTC 15 is equipped with the unique Quad-Count optical matrix counting system.

The Romaco products will be on show at FCE Pharma in São Paulo, Brazil, from 24 to 26 May 2011, at booth 700.

Noack DPN 760: flexibility as a basic principle

Romaco’s blister packaging machine Noack DPN 760, just short of 3m long, is the solution of choice for the production of small batch sizes. Owing to its modular structure, the compact machine adapts flexibly to changing production requirements. Quick retooling and easy cleaning are a must when frequent product changeovers are involved. Format parts can be fitted without using tools. A servo-controlled main drive ensures reliable and precise packaging processes. If desired, a Romaco Promatic intermittent motion cartoner can be installed downstream of the system.

The Noack DPN 760 blister packaging machine produces a wide range of products – from pharmaceutical solids such as tablets, capsules and oblongs, to ampoules, syringes and numerous medical devices. On the intermittent motion machine with platen sealing it is also possible to produce multi-product packages in a variety of sizes and formats. The system processes all sealable foil types and boasts a maximum forming depth of 24mm.

FrymaKoruma MZ toothed colloid mill: selective grinding

The toothed colloid mills in the FrymaKoruma MZ series are used for wet grinding liquid to highly viscous pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, foods and chemicals. These products are ground according to the rotor-stator principle: all ingredients are pumped through the steplessly adjustable, conical grinding gap between the rotor and the stator. The rotor revolves inside the ring-shaped stator at speeds that can peak at up to 50m/s. Coarse, standard or cross-toothed grinding heads can be supplied. Emulsion droplets with a diameter of 1µm can be achieved in this way. The resulting product throughput with FrymaKoruma MZ industrial mills regularly reaches 40,000l/hr.

Bosspak RTC 15: unique counting technology

The tablet and capsule counting machine Bosspak RTC 15 offers the highest precision in counting and filling of pharmaceutical solids, such as tablets, capsules, coated tablets, suppositories or soft gelatin capsules. The patented Quad-Count optical matrix counting system detects the applications from four sides, which significantly expands the counting zone. In addition, the counting head reliably identifies defective products, which are continuously sorted out. The applications arrive at the counting machine on a rotating sorting disc via a filling funnel, which then sorts and classifies them using a unique process. After they are separated, the individual pharmaceuticals are filled into bottles.
