Pharmaceutical manufacturing demands the highest quality standards and completely consistent production. Weight variation; however, is a reality of any large-scale production process. For this reason the industry needs a highly accurate, means of weighchecking production capsules designed for a high volume pharmaceutical manufacturing environment.
The Accura checkweigher for capsules from ACGE use an Elector-Magnetic Force Restoration load cell and the latest digital technology to ensure highly accurate capsule weighing for continuous pharmaceutical production. Capsules in any state: empty, filled, or partially filled, can be weigh-checked at a rate ranging from 40,000 to 200,000 capsules per hour depending on the Accura model used. Weight accuracies of +/- 2mg are achieved with the standard units for capsule weights from 20-150mg. An optional enhancement is available to improve accuracy to +/- .2mg when it is required. Output data is recorded digitally and can be reported to a plant QA system via USB, Ethernet, or paper printouts.
