Marchesini Group, new level of excellence at Achema 2015
At Achema 2015, Marchesini Group will illustrate to customers the new levels of excellence achieved with its pharmaceutical packaging solutions. The machines showcased at the stand measuring 660 square meters (Hall 3.1 - Booth G3) will comprise a congenial mix backed by the typical units of the Group. There will be the monobloc Synchro 24 for filling and counting solids and a preview of brand new units such as the robotized blister line Integra 520V and the vial filler ML 643. Altogether, there will be three complete lines and five stand-alone machines representing the state of the art in each specific sector of the pharmaceutical packaging industry, from serialization to aseptic packaging; they prove the Group’s ability in acclaiming its leading position thanks to the high level of customisation of its products, all “Made in Italy”.
Liquid and aseptic processing
The representative sterile production line of Marchesini will consist of the Stery Capsy aseptic filler and stoppering machine for injectable pharmaceuticals. The key assets of this solution are: perfect accessibility to all critical zones, pre-arrangement to fit cRABS or isolator containment systems, plus simplified management of spare parts and maintenance. Its balcony design means the area in which the product is exposed can be kept separate from that where the mechanical components are installed. This guarantees a perfectly sterile process, in addition to cutting washing, drying and decontamination times by 50% compared with conventional machines.
Another solution to be previewed at Achema is the new ML 643 linear vial filler/capper-plugger with intermittent motion. Its top mechanical production rate is 100 pieces per minute and it can batch from 100 to 200 ml. It can seal the containers with screw-on caps or plugs and even with crimped caps. The linear structure makes the ML 643 ergonomic, also meaning it is much easier to work on the machine with a clear view of each phase of the packaging cycle, from filling through to the capping/crimping of the container. Thanks to the versatility of ML 643, which can be set-up under a laminar flow in its pharmaceutical applications, this machine is also perfect for the cosmetic and nutritional industries.
The RE 302 labeller will also be on show at the trade fair, set up for small eye drop containers. The top feature of this machine is the possibility to check the code 100% because the containers are transported along motorised rotary plates. A photocell detects the position of the code around the container and can send an input to the machine to turn the plate so that it is positioned exactly in front of the camera. If the code is correct, the input is sent to apply the label with the code positioned as required, whereas if the code is wrong, the label is not applied and the container is rejected.
The sterile sector is completed by a new variant of the syringe filler FSP 05. This machine exploits tub opening and syringe filling/stoppering processes integrated in just one monobloc unit. Thanks to its compact footprint and to the individual management systems, it offers economic and technical advantages compared with conventional solutions. The monobloc can produce 12.000 pcs/h and consists of a robotized area where the tubs are opened and an area where the syringes are filled and stoppered; both areas are protected by an isolator that works with laminar flows and guarantees a totally sterile process.
