Filling and Closing Machine Features Integrated Capping Station



The FXS Combi, a filling and closing machine from Bosch Packaging Technology, features an integrated capping station for vials and cartridges. This machine can be integrated into line concepts and is suited for low- and medium-output rates.

The FXS Combi operates with a combi filling station with up to six dosing heads. This makes the machine suitable for all common filling technologies, such as peristaltic or rotary slide valve piston pumps as well as the single-use filling technology PreVAS. A combination with different barrier systems is also possible because the FXS Combi is suited for both restricted access barrier systems and isolators. By combining this filling and closing machine with the upstream ATO tub opener and ABO bag opener from Bosch, it can be integrated into fully automated line concepts.

This device is also suited for processing vials for lyophilization, which helps expand the life span of pharmaceuticals. According to the company, filling on a checkweigher during the start-up and run-empty process makes almost 100% of the pharmaceutical liquids usable for filling.

The filling and closing machine was introduced at Interpack 2014.
