The XP 1 WipCon® addresses all aspects of operator safety in a contained R&D press and permits extreme flexibility for feasibility, development and material characterization.
The WipCon® design eliminates the need for personnel protection apparatus (PPA). The use of a standard RTP permits granulation and finished tablets to be passed in and out of the machine in a fully contained manner. A fully integrated air handling system insures a negative pressure which is precisely controlled. The engineered placement of glove ports insures an ergonomic design which is fully functional and safe.
With max. 50 kN compression force the machine can produce up to 3.600 tablets/h. The single punch press is also suitable for smallest product volumes down to 10ml.
Use of standard TSM B/D or EU B/D and EK 0 tooling. An innovative tool adaptor permits the fast change of press tooling.
The XP 1 is available as a table-top version or fully portable version with a locking caster base. Feeder and material hopper configurations permit the ability to produce large quantities up to 4 liters or small quantities up to 8 ml.
Tablet parameters are established initially under manual operation, and the machine can be placed quickly into automatic operation. The tablet weight, thickness, and hardness can be adjusted while the machine is running.
A full instrumentation package allows together with the PharmaResearch® precision measurement of upper/lower compression force, ejection and scrape off force and upper/lower punch displacement.
Together with the KORSCH PharmaResearch®, the XP 1 offers a comprehensive data acquisition and analysis of press force and punch displacement data. This system can collect data locally, or forward it to a SQL server on a central network, to permit centralized data storage and analysis.
