CHINA-PHARM 2009 will be held in Shanghai, China, 27-30 October. The Romaco trade fair highlight at this year’s CHINA-PHARM is the continuous motion cartoner Promatic PC 4400. With a speed of up to 420 cartons per minute the cartoner combines fully automatic production processes with ergonomic design. This technology can be seen in hall W5 at booth 5810.
Outstanding cartoning performance with the Promatic PC 4400
The Promatic cartoner PC 4400 from Romaco forms a productive unit for pharmaceutical applications for highest quality claims. Its double positive carton opening system provides a smooth and reliable handling at carton opening, and product and leaflet feeding. All folding boxes are grasped by servo-operated sucker arms and actively opened. The use of servo technology minimises mechanical stress on the products, the package inserts and the cartons. This smooth handling of all components increases both performance and quality of the products. With a maximum output of 420 cartons per minute, the PC 4400 packages all kinds of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products; for example, blisters, strips, bottles, tubes, ampoules or vials.
The Promatic PC 4400 is designed to fulfil all ergonomic requirements. The servo drives and the Venturi-vacuum unit reduce noise emissions for the operators and preserve all machine parts. Signs of wear and tear are significantly diminished by the use of toothed belts for product transfer. Safety clutches additionally prevent the machine from mechanical overload. Finally, the balcony design allows fast and easy access to all relevant parts of the machine.
