Filling and closing compact machine for automatic processing of eye drops and nasal sprays.

The equipment we present is a compact filling and closing machine for automatic processing of vials and bottles in glass, plastic, or metal, for liquid, semisolid, and powder products, in sterile areas or clean rooms.

Production speed: up to 3,600 units per hour.

The design has been made for use in sterile areas, in compliance with cGMP and US FDA regulations, and in special accordance with the requirements of the pharmaceutical, biotech, cosmetic, chemical and similar industries. 

The filling station is equipped with a peristaltic pump, valveless rotary piston pump, or powder doser.

All production parameters can be saved in the PLC through different recipes. The parameters are:

  • Dosing volume.
  • Programmable kinematics of the filling system.
  • Adjustment of the automatic feeders.
  • Output­­­­.

New recipes can be easily created and edited.

Dosing volumes from 0.1 up to 250 ml.

The pick & place station places stoppers and caps onto bottles sequentially, using vacuum.

The closing station is equipped with a pneumatic screw head or with a servo head for difficult screw closures.

All closures currently used can be easily handled, such as: 

  • Snap-on closures / screw caps.
  • Childproof caps.
  • Spray pumps / dosing pumps.
  • Droppers.

Feeding of different kinds of stoppers and caps is done automatically by vibrating feeders, made of AISI-316L stainless steel.

The changeover to a different format is carried out quickly, easily and without tools, by exchanging complete sets of format parts. 

In order to work in sterile or clean room conditions, Dara provide different solutions, such as LAF, RABS, or isolators.

Using an isolator or RABS system improves the sterily conditions and offers a better protection of the product and for the user.

Optional equipment:

  • Dosing control through micro scale and automatic recalibration of the volume to be dosed.
  • Gas flushing before, during, or after the filling process.
  • Vibrating autonomy hopper for stoppers and caps.
  • Automatic rejection of defective container.
  • Data recording software to export the production data.
  • Laminar flow unit / RABS / Isolator unit.
  • IQ / OQ Validation package.
  • Printing / Codification.
