SCHOTT Introduces Cartridge Design for High-Speed Filling


At INTERPHEX last month, SCHOTT Pharmaceutical Systems introduced glass cartridges that have been developed specifically for the use on high-speed filling lines. The new design enables quicker processing and reduces overfill losses, the company said in a press release.

More companies are using high-speed filling lines to meet the growing demand for insulin products, and the trend is expected to spread to other products, such as dental cartridges. High-speed filling lines, which can fill up to 600 cartridges per minute, have special quality requirements for cartridges. SCHOTT, in partnership with lead customers, translated these process requirements into a new product design that includes defining the neck specification with respect to straightness and cosmetic defects. Manufacturing for the cartridges will be piloted in St. Gallen, Switzerland, where SCHOTT’s competence center for cartridges is based and from where modifications to manufacturing will be managed globally.
