Bosch Packaging Technology will highlight new vial and capsule filling machines at Interphex 2010 at its booth (#1319, level 3) at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, April 20-22. Bosch will offer visitors a first-hand look at both the MHI 2020 vial filler and the GKF 1400 ASB 100% capsule filling machine.

The new MHI 2020 vial filling and closing machine is specifically designed to handle liquid pharmaceuticals in small batches, making it ideal for clinical tri¬als and pilot production. It can handle multiple dosing systems without the need to retool for added efficiency and is able to perform in-process checkweighing. The new auto-adjust functionality provides production parameter management without manual adjustments and its linear design contributes to a small footprint. The seamless integration of the MHI into various containment systems smoothes installation and completes the list of pharmaceutical industry requirements.

With production capacity of 84,000 capsules per hour the GKF 1400 ASB 100% capsule filler features automatic troubleshooting during production to increase output. The capsule filler features an integrated checkweigher that allows for quick adjustment of fill weight to maintain consistent fill weight through out the batch.

“At Interphex 2010, we will demonstrate our leadership in pharmaceutical filling machines with two in-demand products that solve unmet market needs: the MHI 2020 and GKF 1400 ASB 100%,” said Tom McDaniel, President of Bosch Packaging Technology, Inc. in Minneapolis. “We’ve already received initial positive feedback from the market about these latest developments and expect strong interest by Interphex attendees.”
