IMA ACTIVE machines on display
PRACTICA A new page has been written in the field of solid dose manufacturing: simple, reliable and effective, the new capsule filler PRACTICA is the unbeatable answer to a wide variety of straightforward capsule filling requirements, typically related to the processing of generic drugs or nutraceutical products. PRACTICA provides a competitive solution in terms of speed, precision and ease of use, covering low, medium and high speed production and performing single product dosing: appropriate for the processing of granulate, powder or pellet, the machine can be fitted with an optional statistic weight checking unit and self-adjustment system. User friendliness is a hallmark of this machine and it is highly reliable thanks to its engineered simplicity and ensures extremely easy operation and maintenance.
The PERFIMA LAB has been designed for R&D and scale up purposes. This laboratory system makes use of some highly advanced technology as those developed for the production range and this enables the processing of all kind of products, giving maximum flexibility and easy scale up. The high degree of automation allows easy operation and maintenance procedures to be applied. Characterised by small overall dimensions, laboratory systems can be easily and quickly connected to the utilities. PERFIMA LAB can be considered not only as a laboratory coater but also as a machine for small production batches. Thanks to its interchangeable drum (three different drums are available), it is possible to work a wide range of capacities from 3 to 60 litres.
The ROTOLAB is a compact High Shear Mixer Granulator and Single-Pot Processor for small batch production and R&D applications (3, 6, 12 and 30 litre capacity). The entire process is carried out in one contained bowl: from granulation to the drying of granules. This means that contact between product, operator and environment is minimized. The ROTOLAB is suitable for the development of potent products and allows total batch reproducibility, ensuring high product yields. The tilting system of the bowl ensures gentle handling of granules during vacuum drying to prevent them breaking. The gas stripping system (GA.ST.), by injecting an inert gas through the product mass, enhances the evaporation rate. The machine guarantees a reliable monitoring of granulation and drying, an accurate detection of the process end-point and very easy cleaning operations. ROTOLAB is also available in a complete range of machines for production purposes.
