XL 4004 SFP

SINGLE FUNCTION PLATFORM

XL 4004 SFP - Single-Sided High-Speed Rotary Tablet press


The XL 4004 SFP is a single-sided high-speed rotary tablet press dedicated to single-layer tablet production. The XL 4004 SFP offers streamlined product changeover, unique accessibility to the compression zone and extremely quiet operation. Offering a 100kN pre and main compression capability, a maximum press speed of 120 RPM, and an extended feeder length, the SFP is geared for high-speed production, with a maximum output of 338,400 single-layer tablets per hour. An ergonomic and accessible design permits the fastest changeover of any machine in its class.

MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY IN SINGLE-LAYER

338,400 single-layerTabs./h.

Integrated Electrical Cabinet

Extremely long filling length

Compression Dwell Bar

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. 

1 Common XL 4004 Platform, 2 Machine Models


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.

Superior Accessibility

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.

Streamlined Turret exchange and Product Changeover

The turret design permits the removal of the complete turret, cam tracks, and press tools. A lightweight lifting arm is mounted on the internal lift device and the turret is staged for removal. A simple push-button triggers a safe, effortless, and semiautomatic turret removal sequence to place the turret on the transport cart.

Smart HMI

The control system interface provides an intuitive operating environment and Smart-Touch HMI, which permits move, zoom, and scroll gestures. Available in a Siemens and Allen-Bradley PLC platform, the common 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. 

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
