Bosch Packaging Technology has launched the ALF 5000 filling and closing machine.
Designed for safe and reliable processing of various container types, ampoules, vials or both container types can be used on the machine, and pharmaceutical manufacturers can choose between three different versions.
The vial-only version features 100% in-process control (IPC), which ensures accurate filling volumes at all times.
The ALF 5000 also offers a wide range of filling systems: The platform can be equipped with all established filling systems such as peristaltic pump or time-pressure-filling system and optionally comes with four, six, eight, 10 or 12 filling points.
Customers can further choose between different infeed and outfeed versions. “The result is an especially flexible solution that can be tailored to specific customer requirements,” Göttler explains.
With a left or right handed option, Bosch said the ALF 5000 is flexibly adaptable to existing production sites and workflows
Following Bosch’s pharmaceutical line competence, the new filling and closing machine can be combined with upstream and downstream equipment to form a complete line.
