XL 4004 MFP
MULTI FUNCTION PLATFORM
The XL 400 MFP offers an innovative and flexible design platform that permits the production of all tablet formats on a single tablet press, including single-layer, bi-layer, tri-layer, tablet in tablet and chip in tablet. The result is an unprecedented advancement in tablet press technology which permits maximum efficiency and utilization from a single tablet press.
Tablet in Tablet
Designed for Pharma & Nutraceuticals
The XL 4004 offers precision tablet weight control at the highest production speeds. Extended filling length permits superior weight uniformity . The compression dwell bar prevent the tablet from “relaxing” in the space between pre- and main compression rollers, increasing tablet hardness on dwell-time sensitive products. The machine complies with the highest standard in GMP- and all valid FDA-regulations. KORSCH controls permit full compliance with 21 CFR Part 11.
The 4th Generation
The XL 4004 offers a new level of innovation and advancement, while maintaining the flexibility that is the hallmark of the XL 400 design. Smarter and featuring a complete new control system interface the machine offers an intuitive operating experience. The integration of the electrical cabinet, a sealed machine design without cooling fans or vents, and the use of an advanced torque drive enhance the proven design of the XL 400 platform.
The XL 400 design offers a single-layer only (SFP), and a flexible single and multi-layer (MFP) capability in two machine models that share a common platform, and fully interchangeable components. Further advantages are the identical control systems and HMI environment, process equivalent design for direct product transfer or the common procedures for setup, changeover, and turret exchange between both machines.
The XL 4004 fullfills the special requirements of Multi-Layer tabletting including the following features:
- Retracting feeder design for fully automated layer sampling at production speeds.
- Monitoring of individual force at the tamping and final compression stations with closed loop control of each layer weight
- Single Tablet Rejection based on layer tamping force and final compression force with reject log
- No Cross-Contamination with zero clearance feeders
The XL 4004 MFP features an modified carrier plate and head piece that permits the installation of a wide range of conversion kits consisting in compression roller modules, feeder modules, and cam track modules that permit a “plug and play” approach for maximum versatility.
Superior Accessibility by Design
The innovative carrier plate design of the XL 400 eliminates the traditional corner columns and offers extreme access to the compression zone. The combination of smooth surfaces and quick-disconnects permit fast cleaning and changeover. The routing of the dust extraction hoses through a dedicated chamber contributes to the great serviceability of the XL 4004.
Minimal Noise and Vibration
The unique and patented design of the carrier plate, with dampers, fully isolates vibration from the head piece and machine base. The result is:
- Very low noise emission < 80 dB(A)
- No vibration transmission to the floor of the compression room
- No segregation of powder in the feeding system wich can occur with machine vibration
The control system interface provides an intuitive operating environment and Smart-Touch HMI, which permits move, zoom, and scroll gestures. The HMI environment offers a comprehensive onboard help capability, which includes a vast array of multi-media help files to present procedures and to support the operation and maintenance.
KORSCH offers a wide range of containment solutions on most machine models, including DryCon and WipCon® executions. With proven solutions across the full containment range (OEB 3, OEB 4, OEB 5), KORSCH provides a fully turnkey system which is engineered to meet the specific requirements of the project. In partnership with the customer, KORSCH specialists define critical process parameters, including containment requirements, peripheral integration, and automation design. KORSCH engineers are expert in developing the concept, execution, integration, and final SMEPAC testing to fully validate the containment capability.
The XL 400 MFP WipCon® is a high-speed, flexible tablet press that offers a comprehensive Wash-in-Place and high-containment (OEB 4, OEB 5) capability for the production of highly active or potent compounds.
The WipCon® execution permits contained access to the compression zone and eliminates the requirement for personnel protection equipment (PPE) during operation and cleaning.
