TurboFil will showcase a module for automated, simplified production of a wide range of syringe formats at the INTERPHEX trade show this month.
“Employing a versatile yet precise setup that accurately fills syringes via ceramic piston, peristaltic pump or direct draw from a reservoir bag, the company said its SimpliFil Syringe Filling & Assembly System is suitable for small to medium batches.”
The technology comprises a walking beam indexing configuration, which the equipment specialist said provides intuitive operation and simplified, recipe-based changeover.
For heightened precision, TipFil technology is said to allow syringes to be filled through the tip, a step-saving innovation eliminating the need to insert plungers post-filling.
Filling up to 36 syringes per minute, the SimpliFil system handles syringes with tips outfitted for press-on caps and luer caps, as well as various safety caps recently incorporated for oral syringes, added the New York based company.
For post-capping marking applications, TurboFil said there is also an optional labeler that can wrap syringes with pre-printed labels or, for medications requiring variable marking, print individual labels per uploaded input. An automatic syringe loading system also is available, as is a volume and vision system for fill and label matching verification.
