The medipac mf120 tube filling machine is designed for pharmaceutical production and is based on the well proven technology of filling fragile tablets through rotating tubes.


The mf120 is fully GMP-conform and is designed to be installed as an integrated part of a complete production line. However it can also be installed as a stand alone machine.


The machine can communicate with other machines in the line and can be equipped with extra features such as automatic tube feeding, code reading, tube cleaning, Inkjet printing and de- dusting.


The combination of electric drives, a PLC, pneumatics and replaceable format-parts reduces set-up time to less than 30 minutes and provides the largest known flexibility range in terms of possible product formats.


Empty tubes are supplied as bulk into the unscrambler or are fed manually, by the operator, into the tube hub on the machine. If an unscrambler is used are the tubes transferred to the filling machine on a FlexLink conveyor. During transfer can code reading and/or tube cleaning be performed.


Tablets are fed directly from a tablet press via a tablet conveyer or from a tablet feeder.


On the tablet table of the machine are the tablets guided into 8 channels where they are counted. The preset distance between 2+1 pneumatic stop-pins guarantees an accurate counting. This distance can easily be adjusted to count odd as well as even number of tablets.


After filling is the filling level of the tubes controlled automatically. Thereafter are correctly filled tubes capped by the machine and fed out to a transfer conveyer. On the last transfer conveyer is Inkjet printing normally performed.
