TurboFil Packaging Machines, a leader in liquid filling and assembly, will be showcasing two innovative products at the 2015 PackExpo East show, held February 16-18 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Since 2000, TurboFil has provided customers with quality equipment and valuable patented technologies to maximize reliability, efficiency and ease of operation. “TurboFil has always been driven by innovation, and our goal is to continue to develop and deliver advanced products that improve operational reliability and flexibility for our customers, particularly those with specialized needs.” said TurboFil Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, Deborah Smook. “PackExpo East attendees can expect to see a broad range of systems that demonstrate our dedication to developing the right solutions to meet our customers’ special needs.”

MHC120. Technology-driven Solution for Bottle Capping
TurboFil will feature a live demonstration of its new Multi-Head Hybrid Capper MHC120 in booth 1111 at PackExpo East. This new platform combines the accuracy and repeatability of servo controlled capping with the flexibility and easy changeover of parallel gripper belts for container handling.

The MHC120 offers an abundance of features in a compact package that can be installed right over the customer’s existing conveyor. Measuring only 100 inches along the conveyor, the unique racetrack layout delivers capping speeds of up to 120 containers per minute.

“Understanding our customers’ need for chuck capping on a more flexible platform, we’re offering the latest in servo motor technology, bringing together gentle capping, enhanced reliability, and super easy changeover,” commented Smook.

In addition to its latest capping solutions, TurboFil will showcase a number of other advanced technologies, including:

  • • Vers40 Vial Filling and Assembly System – Compact walking beam system for filling, stoppering and crimping or screw capping of vials. No vial change parts are required.
  • • UniPuck Adjustable Puck System – In line filling and assembly system designed for operations with multiple containers, short runs and frequent changeovers. Common applications include perfumes, personal care products and diagnostic reagents.
  • • Syringe and Applicator Filling Systems. Automatic systems for filling and assembling single and dual syringes and unusual applicators with liquid and viscous product.
  • • Nail Polish Filling and Assembly – Semi- and fully automated systems.

Introducing Reditrace, an Innovative Cloud Solution for Pharmaceutical Track and Trace

TurboFil Packaging Machines, LLC and Miracom Computer Corp. have partnered to develop an integrated serialization, ePedigree and traceability solution for the pharmaceutical supply chain. Working together, TurboFil and Miracom enable pharmaceutical companies and CMO/CPO supply partners to confidently meet all track and trace regulations.

The Reditrace Cloud’s track and trace platform is hardware independent allowing for a choice of printer, camera and sensor. This makes it easily adaptable to an existing packaging line. The cloud based system enables an enterprise wide sharing solution with end-to-end controlled access to all data without expensive local infrastructure requirements. To prevent downtime during software upgrades or line outage, data is also stored locally prior to upload.
Pharmaceutical companies and external supply partners benefit from:

  • • Serial number provisioning and tracking as products are packaged and distributed
  • • Inventory management from packaging line to distribution
  • • Full capabilities for analysis and data mining

Judah Holstein, CEO of Miracom Computer Corp. commented, “This unique platform, utilizing local hardware, and cloud storage and access, minimizes total cost of ownership as well as compliance risk. Our extensive experience and impeccable track record with cloud based inventory tracking is the foundation for this innovative approach.”

All of the newest TurboFil equipment will be on display in booth 1111 at PackExpo East. For more information on any TurboFil Packaging Machines equipment.
