Company’s SimpliFil Syringe Filling & Assembly System incorporates efficient, through-the-tip filling process for reliable and cost-effective handling of small to medium syringe batches.
Mount Vernon, NY – TurboFil Packaging Machines LLC, an equipment specialist dedicated solely to the design and development of liquid filling and assembly machines, has introduced a module offering automated, simplified production for a wide range of syringe formats. Employing a versatile yet precise setup that accurately fills syringes via ceramic piston, peristaltic pump or direct draw from a reservoir bag, the company's SimpliFil Syringe Filling & Assembly System is suitable for small to medium batches.
TurboFil's new machine is designed for ease of use: its signature highlight is a walking beam indexing configuration, which provides intuitive operation and simplified, recipe-based changeover. For heightened precision, TurboFil's unique TipFil technology allows syringes of all types to be filled through the tip – a step-saving innovation that eliminates the need to insert plungers post-filling. In addition to being a convenient and thoroughly clean method of product filling, TipFil technology adds to the machine’s expedient, hassle-free changeover.
Capable of filling up to 36 syringes per minute, the SimpliFil Syringe Filling & Assembly System can smoothly handle syringes with tips outfitted for press-on caps and luer caps, as well as various safety caps recently incorporated for many oral syringes. For post-capping marking applications, TurboFil also offers 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.
“Syringe filling and assembly has historically been among the pharma industry’s most complicated applications, one where mission-critical precision tends to slow down throughput and drive up cost,” said Deborah Smook, VP of Marketing & Business Development for TurboFil Packaging Machines LLC. “Featuring our innovative TipFil through-the-tip filling process, the SimpliFil Syringe Filling & Assembly machine represents a rare combination of versatility, accuracy and affordability, and its customization options make it ideal for a broad range of manufacturing circumstances.”
TurboFil’s SimpliFil Syringe Filling & Assembly System features an Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC, a 7” color touchscreen HMI and individual controls for each station. The module can store recipes for streamlined repeatability, and available data logging functions include 21 CFR Part 11. For preventative maintenance and diminished downtime, remote diagnostics can be performed via ethernet communications, and verification sensors monitor all production stages.
