The XL 800 is a reliable workhorse designed for high speed (up to 120 RPM), high volume, fully automated 24/7 operation. The machine offers an innovative bi-layer conversion kit which permits to run both single-layer and bi-layer formats on the same machine. The exchangeable turret design allows the production of any tablet size.
> 1 MIO single-layer Tabs/h.
Turret Removal Capability
100 kN / 100 kN
Designed for Pharma & Nutraceuticals
The XL 800 offers precision tablet weight control at the highest production speeds. All major technical components are placed in the rear cabinet (including the main motor) avoiding heat transfer to the product. The "Through The Wall" installation option allows the true separation between white and grey zone. 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 KORSCH expertise is the optimal utilization of the pitch circle of the tablet press, from die filling to tablet ejection. The long feeder lengths, smooth cam tracks, and the compression dwell bar all combine to permit maximum throughput without any compromise on product quality.
User Friendly Operation
The design concept of the XL 800, with the multi-function column at the rear of the machine, and without the need for corner columns around the compression zone, offers optimal access for set-up, cleaning, changeover, and maintenance. The Through-The-Wall installation option offers access to all major machine components from the service area.
Touch Screen Control
KORSCH controls are based on a standard Siemens PLC. The touch screen HMI also uses industry standards, including WinCC, which are operating on an industrial PC platform.
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 800 DryCon
The XL 800 DryCon is a double-sided rotary press for high-volume manufacturing of 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.
