Gentle Tablet Conveyors

August 5, 2009
In response to the increasing customer need to load filling machines with capsules and tablets, and working closely in conjunction with leading users, this company has designed a variety of solutions for the unloading of tablets and capsules from drums, gaylords, and boxes, with or without poly liners. Systems range from top down unloading to ‘open and tip’ and IBC discharge interface. Successful solutions for the transport of tablets, empty and filled capsules, dragees, etc., are all available in true cGMP designs. The conveyors and handling systems automatically transfer product to presses, bottle fillers, and other packaging or process equipment, within a vacuum air stream. The key to the system is an integrated energy trap that reduces the kinetic energy associated with transfer/impact damage.
