02-18, 2016
The first major event in the United States for Marchesini Group in 2016 will be Interphex in New York from April 26th to April 28th (Booth   No. 3125), the leading trade show for biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing solutions for the safe and cost-effective processing of all dosage forms for life-enhancing drugs.

Technical Focus

The equipment that Marchesini Group will be exhibiting at Interphex is the new Extrafill model, a filling and stoppering machine for nested syringes, developed to meet the growing demands of packaging disposable pre-filled syringes in the North American marketplace. 

This new addition to our syringe filling line-up is compact and designed to accommodate from two to five stoppering stations. The final outcome is a machine capable of producing 12 thousand pieces per hour and with precise batching operations, thanks to systems that center the syringes and completely protect them during the filling process to avoid contamination and to ensure a sterile processExtrafill is equipped with peristaltic filling pumps and an innovative statistical check by-batched weigher, which offers economical and technical benefits compared with traditional solutions. 

All the production phases are integrated in one monobloc unit designed to combine the two tub opening and syringe filling/stoppering operations under just one isolator. Once loaded on the machine, the tub passes under the system that heats the lidding edges. The tub then passes under the opening station where a robotic arm peels off the Tyvek® protective film and pushes it onto a loading belt to continue towards the filling and stoppering stations.  

The robot is an innovative gripper system that moves just like a human hand and is the outcome of research and development activities carried out by Marchesini Group to innovate the automatic machinery industry. Both the mechanical and software of the delidding (peeling) systems have indeed been developed entirely by the R&D team with the aim of devising a specific robotised system capable of handling the product with outstanding efficiency in sterile conditions.
