The TipFil Syringe Filler from TurboFil Packaging Machines is a benchtop syringe filling machine that offers full control of filling parameters in single or dual operation and fills at a rate of up to 12 pieces per minute.

Using a piston instrument that draws the needle back via the plunger, the distance the plunger is pulled back dictates the amount of drug filled, which eliminates the need to clean the metering device and offers repeatable product filling driven by a servo motor. Additionally, the device can perform through-the-tip filling for liquids or viscous products in typical infeed scenarios including hoppers and reservoirs; it offers an optional attachment for the filling of bottles and vials; and features fully disposable, single-use plastic product contact parts.

Fill volumes are electronically adjustable via a human-machine interface, a priming function works to enable air bubble removal, and a draw-filling method provides the device with operator safety, simple changeover, and flexible parameters for a variety of syringe sizes and product types. The syringe filler also has the ability to fit underneath a laminar flow hood for aseptic filling, while its product and fill volumes remain accessible by an optional barcode scanner.
