Isopak Ltd, the UK”s exclusive distributor for Dott.Bonapace, is launching a further product to add to its extensive range of pharmaceutical equipment with the addition of an automatic tablet dosing device.
Fully compatible with all Dott.Bonapace capsule filling machines, the new automatic tablet dosing device is designed for applications involving the placement of tablets, oblongs, mini and micro tablets into capsules.
Suitable for a wide range of projects including clinical trials, R&D applications and blind trials, the automatic tablet dosing device can handle up to 3,000 capsules per hour.
It is easy to use and has relatively inexpensive change parts needed for the accommodation of different tablets. A big feature of the dosing device is that Isopak can, if required, produce the change parts using just drawings, which is particularly useful where no tablet samples are available.
Manufactured in high grade stainless steel, the unit can be supplied and fitted to new In-CAP capsule filling machines and also retrospectively to older Dott.Bonapace equipment. As a further bonus no electrical connections are needed because the In-CAP capsule filling machine powers the automatic tablet dosing device.
The unit is easy to operate and product changeovers can be made in a matter of minutes, thanks to the electro polished and laser marked format disc. Designed for disassembling without any tools, the full dosing cycle is controlled by a Siemens SPS which, thanks to a highly accurate laser beam, is precisely controlled.
Operationally, the user can choose between the automatic dosing mode and manual production. The run cycle is straight forward and comprises the separation of the tablets, oblongs, mini or micro tablets in to the feed hopper and the counting of these into the capsule body using a highly accurate laser sensor.
The automatic tablet dosing device works with a cross-section of combinations including tablets and powders, tablets and pellets, tablets with other tablets and also in combinations involving up to three of the different items.
This latest development from Dott.Bonapace builds on its 60 years of manufacturing precision- made equipment for the UK pharmaceutical market.
Isopak”s managing director Robin Davies Comments: “The new automatic tablet dosing device is a welcome addition to the extensive line-up and offers existing and also new Dott.Bonapace customers far more flexibility. A key selling point is the laser controlled accuracy of the dispensing which ensures only the right amount is supplied.
“It is highly versatility and simple to operate, which makes it the ideal choice for those involved in research and development, clinical trials and small batch specialist production.”
Supplied with a 12-month warranty, the automatic tablet dosing device is extremely well engineered and therefore highly unlikely to cause problems.
This latest development augments Dott.Bonapace”s range of high-quality machines designed for the pharmaceutical industry, including its fully automatic In-Cap fillers and bench top tablet presses, such as the CPR-18 rotary tablet press and the CPR-6, one of the smallest bench top tablet press units in the world.
