Every three years, the Frankfurt Trade Fair opens its gates to give an insight into the future of pharmaceutical production: ACHEMA then invites visitors from all over the world. Around 145,000 visitors attended the leading exhibition in June 2018. At the Fette Compacting stand, they discovered how tablet and capsule production have developed further and how users benefit from this. Come with us and explore the highlights of Fette Compacting.
At ACHEMA, Fette Compacting did not merely have new machines in their repertoire, but a comprehensive solution that helps users optimize the added value in tablet production. The new service is called "Lifetime Efficiency". It is divided into three phases of the production life cycle – development, production and modernization – and includes compatible service packages. This means that the individual solutions are tailored exactly to the specific requirements in the different life phases of the respective system. It was presented as one of the many highlights around the exhibition stand. Visitors could, for example, explore the Lifetime Efficiency modules on computer columns using an interactive app.
The FEC20 capsule filling machine
At ACHEMA, the second capsule filling machine by Fette Compacting celebrated its world premiere launch: The FEC20 takes the innovative technology of the FEC40 and makes it available to users who want to produce medium-sized batches of up to 200,000 capsules per hour. Technically, the machines are based on the same design concept which means that a number of components can be used in both machines as needed. The new FEQ20 capsule monitoring system is also part of the FEC20.
Dust-proof and efficient:
Since Interpack 2017, Fette Compacting has also been further developing the Containment Guard concept. Containment Guard is the first quality certificate which establishes the retention efficiency of containment tableting systems even prior to the conclusive risk assessment carried out by the operator. The Containment Guard level is derived from the results of a standardized procedure that documents the retention efficiency of a system. At ACHEMA, visitors could then find out more about the method and the latest measurement results.
