PKBR Staff Writer Published 06 October 2017

groninger said it will exhibit its machine solution FlexPro 50 for small batch production from October 24 to 26 at the CPhI worldwide show in Frankfurt, Germany.

groninger said in turn-key partnership with Martin Christ Freeze Drying Systems, there will be expertise from fill/finish to freeze drying on one booth.

On similar lines with other sectors, even the pharmaceutical industry also experiences trend for specialization in medicines, resulting in smaller batch sizes mostly for cost-intensive biotech products.

Smaller batch sizes can often result in high demand flexibility because of processing different containers and products on the same filling line.

The trend for smaller batches intensifies with the use of pre-sterilised objects being utilized for aseptic filling and closing of cost-intensive biotech products.

The company’s new FlexPro 50 machine processes pre-sterilised, nested and ready-to-use syringes, catridges and vials.

FlexPro 50 is flexible to the extent that changing few size parts, nested syringes, cartridges and vials can be filled and closed with the machine using a one line configuration.

The interchangeable machine trolleys let for additional line configuration allowing for an integrated nest/bulk process line which can achieve an output of 4700 objects per hour.

The machines allows for several manual or automatic process to cater to market and customer requirements. Besides from standardised coordinated line modules in a compact design, one of the biggest advantages, advocated by the company is that the operators can access the machine modules from both sides.

This enables full technical integration of isolator modules and particle monitoring system. It also claims that the machine can save up to 40% of space compared to conventional systems.
