Germany-based Romaco Kilian, along with Theegarten-Pactec, is set to present a high-speed solution for use in the tableting and packing soup cubes.
The solution, which will be presented at the upcoming Interpack event to be held in Dusseldorf, Germany, next month, includes a Romaco Kilian KTS 1000 tablet press and a Theegarten-Pactec FPC5 wrapping machine.
The solution is already used by the food industry to manufacture and pack soup cubes in flow wrap.
Capable of manufacturing tablets of all sizes, Romaco’s KTS 1000 high-speed press is designed to compress up to 3,000 cubes a minute.
The tablet press can also manufacture mono-layer, bi-layer and triple-layer formats. It can further compress core-rod tablets or tablets for later core feeding.
According to Romaco, the machine is suitable for both food and non-food applications and offers round-the-clock service.
In addition, the press has various fill shoe systems that optimise the die filling process.
The machine’s dedicated tooling also enables the safe processing of highly viscous or abrasive powders.
KTS 1000 features patented, wear-free punch brake magnets for constant re-dosing and hydraulic overpressure protection.
Romaco also noted that the patented bellows safeguard the tablets from contamination with lubricants during compression and improves product quality.
The separation between the compaction and service areas of the press helps prevent tablet dust from entering the machine compartment during the production process.
The KTS 1000 can be installed in non-air-conditioned production environments and can be integrated into a packaging line at any time on request.
It also requires minimal costs and effort for cleaning, replacing wearing parts and maintenance.
