FLP is a production platform for inhaler products. The standard platform makes it possible to easily integrate complex technologies, processes and assembly tasks. This filling machine makes it possible to fill several panels at the same time, while also assembling complex inhalers with unit dose cartridges or multi-dose discs.
Powder filling and assembly system for powder inhalers based on the FLP-200 machine platform.
A tray is used as a transport medium in this machine platform. After cleaning and completely removing the products they are fed back to the beginning of the process.
Dosing process: Powder filling of cartridges via dosing roller
Filling the trays with empty cartridges
Product handling: Turning the filled and closed cartridges onto larger trays
For injection and inhalation products, micro-dosing of liquid or powder ingredients is an integral part of the overall process. Thanks to sophisticated barrier technology, this production area runs as an isolated system. A variety of dosing systems are used depending on the task at hand.
The assembly processes designed by Harro Höfliger meet simple and complex assembly tasks alike – from inserting reservoirs into inhalers or closing cartridges to the final assembly of DPI inhalers, auto-injectors and pens.
Trays serve to transport sensitive products. Harro Höfliger offers comprehensive solutions to load and unload trays in complete lines, for assembly projects for example. Available systems include a variety of format and performance classes for optimum synchronization.
The final inspection of assembly products is essential for product safety and functional capability. When administering active ingredients, precise portioning of the medication is crucial. The inspections test for triggering, discharge or leak tightness. Force, path and torque of the test are pre-definable.
Powder inhalers help diabetes patients: For the MannKind Corporation located in the United States, Harro Höfliger engineered and constructed two filling and assembly systems for dry powder inhalers.
