Capsule/tablet weigher

Michael Becker, director of engineering, Pfizer GmbH, reported on a four-year project, "FAST," (Fully Automated Supply and Transport), recently completed at the firm's Freiburg, Germany plant. The plant produces tablets and capsules of Lipitor, Valoron and Neurotin for 80 different countries in a wide variety of package configurations. The highly automated, computer integrated plan helped the plant achieve OEE comparable with other industries, depending on the equipment measured.

• for both clinical batch and initial press start-up sorting, it offers statistical reports

• sorter option and extra-large input hopper allow facilities to sort entire batches; speeds range from 45/min to 450/min
