ALL FEATURES OF A LARGE ONE
The XL 100 features an integrated electrical cabinet and a very simple and robust mechanical design. The fully self-contained and portable machine is the ideal tool for the product development. The XL 100 offers extreme accessibility to the compression zone (no corner columns), an exchangeable turret for maximum flexibility, and a combination of quick-disconnects and smooth surfaces that permit fast cleaning and changeover.
Rotary R&D Press
Full Instrumentation Available
Technical & Chemical Applications
For feasibility studies or small batch production, the XL 100 offers special options for technical and chemical applications, such as special tools with patented heavy-duty profile heads or lubricant spraying of dies and punches with magnesium stearate or graphite for hard-to-eject tablets. Center pin tools allow the production of rings.
Small Product Quantities
The XL 100 permits the execution of full compaction studies with limited material quantities. A reduced volume product hopper and reduced volume feeder insure efficient operation, and the control system is fully functional with reduced press tools. The mixed turret design permits the development of B and D size tablets on the same turret.
The machine offers a precompression capability of 10 kN and a main compression capability of 60 kN and a maximal Output of 86.400 tablets/h with a maximum press speed of 120 RPM.
The 120 RPM press speed permits meaningful data on compression dwell time and feeder dwell time to be developed and analyzed.
The XL 100 may be fully instrumented for the measurement of precompression force, main compression force, ejection force, and scrape off force, to permit product development parameters to be evaluated and stored.
Together with the PharmaResearch, a Windows based data acquisition system and a full instrumentation package the XL 100 permits storage, analysis, and export of compression and ejection force data.
PharmaResearch assists during:
- R&D and scale-up phase
- Production of small batches while monitoring limits
- Tabletting process offering trouble shooting support
The XL 100 offers an optional integrated press force control system PharmaControl ® to permit automatic weight control and single-tablet rejection.
- Stainless Steel Base
- Locking Casters
- Permits Full Portability
- Leveling Footpads Included
XL 100 Pro
Instead of a simple operator panel, the XL 100 Pro includes an industrial PC like the production machines. This allows to integrate the optional software PharmaResearch as well as a press force control system that permits additionally data recording. With a 15 inch touch screen, the XL 100 Pro control system offers a graphical and user friendly environment.
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
