The new filling and closing machine FXS Combi

Depending on output and container, the new filling and closing machine FXS Combi with two or five positions processes pre-sterilized nested syringes, vials and cartridges. The FXS Combi is the first filling and closing machine of this kind with an integrated capping station for vials and cartridges. It can be easily integrated into line concepts, allowing for significant space savings. The FXS Combi 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; the FXS Combi is suited for both Restricted Access Barrier Systems (RABS) and isolators. By combining the new filling and closing machine with the proven upstream ATO tub opener and ABO bag opener from Bosch, it can be integrated into fully automated line concepts.
