Multisorb Technologies to Showcase the Uhlmann Bottle line IBC 150 with Fully-Integrated MultiPacket System Dispenser at interpack 2017

BUFFALO, N.Y. and LAUPHEIM, Germany, April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Multisorb Technologies, Inc. of Buffalo, New York, USA, and Uhlmann Pac-Systeme GmbH & Co. KG of Laupheim, Germany have announced that Uhlmann will be exhibiting their Bottle line IBC 150 featuring a fully-integrated Multisorb MultiPacket system dispenser at the interpack 2017 exhibition during May 4-10 at the Düsseldorf Messe in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Unparalleled Output Efficiency for Sorbent Packet Dispensing

For bottle packaging presentations requiring the automated insertion of Multisorb's StripPax® desiccant, IntelliSorb® moisture regulating, and StabilOx® oxygen absorbing packets, Multisorb pairs these sorbent packets with its APA® series of MultiPacket system dispensers which provide the highest efficiency sorbent packet-dispenser system available.

"Working closely with Multisorb, Uhlmann has fully integrated a deconstructed version of its model APA® 2000 dispenser into its Bottle line IBC 150," states Adrian Possumato, Vice President at Multisorb.

"The fully integrated APA® 2000 and IBC 150 provides Multisorb sorbent packet customers with the end-to-end, efficient approach to drug product bottling operations offered by Uhlmann's bottle line. In addition to offering the lowest possible total cost of ownership, it also offers a very positive user experience which is representative of the future of bottling operations," adds Possumato.

Integrated Systems: Innovative Bottling Lines for Oral Solid Dose Drug Products

The IBC 150 and IBC 240 from Uhlmann are two pharmaceutically compliant, integrated lines for the packaging of tablets and capsules in bottles. They are a new generation of bottling machines for very efficient, flexible, and user-friendly packaging.

Measuring just five meters in length and capable of speeds of up to 150 bottles per minute, the IBC 150 guarantees flexible efficiency in the packaging of different oral solid dose drug products in bottles. The integrated and extensively automated monoblock line is controlled by a central touchscreen. On average, it is 20 percent more efficient than solutions made up of separate components.

The IBC 150 features include:

  • Format-free bottle transport for a continuous product flow – from start to finish
  • GMP-compliant bench-type design
  • Fast format changeover as very few format parts
  • Scalable performance: up to four counting modules and three capping heads for increased output, increased counting capacity, or a combination of both
  • 100-percent counting accuracy  – worldwide proven Cremer counting technology
  • Operator and product protection as completely enclosed system

Uhlmann will be demonstrating the fully integrated Multisorb APA® 2000 MultiSystem packet dispenser with the IBC 150 bottling interface and splicing station cabinet. The APA® 2000 dispenser's splicing station cabinet, available with dry air or inert gas purge, allows the dispenser to run continuously. As one packet roll finishes, it is spliced unto the next roll during dispenser operations thereby preventing unnecessary downtime.
