Cremer pioneered, developed and introduced multichannel electronic counters for the pharmaceutical industry 30 years ago. Today the counters principles are essentially the same but the machines have been continuously developed to meet technological advances. The latest example is the modular high speed counting machine CF-622 and now, the CFS-622 for intermediate production outputs. And, to go further, a new addition introduced recently is a 4-module version of the CFS-622.
The CF-622 module has become the benchmark for the highest quality high speed counting machine for tablets and capsules. The “high speed” system uses from 3 or 4 to 10 modules and a patented container handling system. There is also a need for a system with an output to suit 1, 2 or 3 modules with a simpler frame and container handling for speeds of up to 50, 100 and 150 containers/minute respectively. The new CFS-622 x 1, 2, 3 (and now also 4) modules fulfills this and will run even faster on smaller counts!
The CFS (S = scroll container feed) has all the same features as the high-speed system. The counting modules are totally servo driven for complete control and validation and typically run at 40 to 50 discharges per minute per module and will even run with some modules switched off! The ‘memory flaps are servo-driven, contact-less so are wear and maintenance free. The product feed hopper system has a special discharge ‘slide’ which ensures even distribution across the channels and the hoppers can empty completely. To keep the system compact and with precise container handling and separation a servo driven scroll is used. A feature of the individual modules is that they slide out onto a mobile support frame for easy thorough cleaning or maintenance.
