FXS 2050 and peristaltic pumps
Bosch Packaging Technology introduces its fully automated filling line for pre-sterilized syringes: the FXS 2050,
designed for mid-range output. This slender line concept was developed specifically for manufacturers with limited production space.
At the core of the FXS 2050 filling and closing machine are its peristaltic pumps. Together with the fully automated bag (ABO)
and tub (ATO) opening system it achieves an output of up to 9,500 syringes per hour. The reduced need for manual interference
minimizes the risk of contamination. The program-controlled servo drives, precisely operating robotics and fewer form sets further
reduce the contamination risk during production. The extraction of product samples functions automatically; single syringe samples
can be accessed and discharged directly.
The bag and tub opening system is part of the fully automated solution for up-stream processes to prepare the tubs and syringe nests.
Besides the output, the line focuses on pre-defined, secure and completely reproducible processes. Furthermore, integrated in the line
is the RIL-100 rod insertion labeling unit, the USD-100 denester and the ZPS buffer system. All three units are supplied by
Moeller & Devicon, a Bosch Packaging Technology company.
"Fully integrated filling and closing lines most effectively reduce the risk of contaminating sterile delivered syringes,"
says Klaus Ullherr, Product Manager for syringes at Bosch Packaging Technology. "With the compact FXS 2050 and the integrated solutions
for up and down-stream processes, the entire filling and closing process for pre-sterilized syringes can be executed".
With the new MHI 2020 vial filling and closing machine, Bosch Packaging Technology is embracing the special needs for clinical trials
and pilot production of liquid pharmaceuticals.
The MHI works with a self-monitoring and self-controlled filling process. This intelligent interaction of the transport system,
In-Process Control, filling and stoppering stations ensures that the fed containers are precisely filled and closed.
The MHI combination filling station can optionally perform filling with either piston pumps or rolling diaphragm pumps to cover
the widest variety of products.
