Although these products are separate and distinct industries by themselves, they all share the same characteristics in so far as the types of filling machine that is suitable. These products almost always involve small, accurate fill volumes into small containers that are sometimes difficult to handle.
Many pharmaceutical applications require complete, regulatory, validated control over all elements of the packaging process including not only the filling aspect but also container closing and handling. To accomplish this requires something more sophisticated than a simple, standalone filling machine. A multifunction machine described as a “monoblock” can perform all required functions. Otherwise, where the containers are more easily handled, a more simple standalone peristaltic filling machine can handle most applications in the biomedical, diagnostics, nutraceutical industries with some crossover into the pharmaceutical industry. Additional details about each machine can be found in our selection guide.
