ARF 1010/1020 ampoule- and injection-filling machine

Bosch Packaging Technology has released a compact machine for the pharmaceutically safe filling and closing of opened and closed ampoules. Optionally, the machine can be used for the filling of ampoules and injection bottles in combination. The circular filling and capping machine with an indexing motion for opened and closed ampoules is designed for small-batch industrial production with production rates up to 120 pieces per minute.

The ARF 10x0 machine, for the filling and closing of opened ampoules, consists of two gassing stations (pre-filling and post-filling gassing), a two-position filling station with servo-controlled rotary valve piston pumps, and a digital flowmeter for the easy and thorough reproduction of the flame regulation for the closing of the ampoules. The ignition of the flame takes place automatically and can be easily activated from the machine’s operator interface. The machine is loaded with ampoules or injection bottles via an inclined loading station. The containers are then singularised by a scroll conveyer loaded into the transport starwheel, which runs with an indexing motion. The starwheel gently transports the containers, in a low particle- and laminar-friendly way through the working stations.

The ampoules in the transport starwheel at the closing station are taken by a special holder and rotated for closing. Another step for safety is the pivoting motion of the removal grippers towards the back of the machine. In this way the laminar flow over the opened ampoule during the closing (melting) is not disturbed. Also the central flame exhaust, as well as the disposal shaft for the ampoule tips, are arranged such that the laminar flow is affected as little as possible.
