Company has developed a new sealing solution for injection and infusion vials. The compact VRT 1010/1020 is equipped with highly sensitive control systems, ensures reliable capping and achieves an output of 120 containers per minute. The unit can also be combined with barrier and containment systems. The machine meets current EU GMP requirements, according to Annex 1. Depending on the version, the unit takes over the filled and plugged injection and infusion vials from an upstream filling machine or a rotary table via single or double lane. The vials pass through all work stations in a conveying starwheel with counter guidance. Before capping, a camera-based sensor performs the stopper presence check. Containers with a missing or incorrectly-placed stopper are guided to an outward station. Correctly stoppered containers continue to the capping station. Caps are attached loosely via a tow-off chute after being picked up. While containers are rotated, they are clamped via a plunger and tilted against a freely revolving roller by a servo-controlled tilting movement.
