XL 4004 SFP
SINGLE FUNCTION PLATFORM
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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
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.
XL 4004 SFP DryCon
The XL 4004 SFP DryCon is a single-sided single-layer only high-speed rotary tablet press for processing highly active but not highly toxic ingredients. The DryCon execution permits contained access to the compression zone and eliminates the requirement for personnel protection equipment (PPE) during operation.
