The Pharmafill™ TC4 tabletop pill counter from packaging machinery manufacturer Deitz Co., features a proprietary Smart Bottle Sensor System that continuously monitors the discharge chutes for the presence of a bottle and automatically halts the filling operation if no bottle is present or if a filled bottle remains in place.
Developed to offer accurate, automated pill counting technology in an entry-level model, the Pharmafill TC4 continuously counts and discharges the pills into bottles, shifting non-stop, back and forth, from the left discharge chute to the right.
An operator places empty bottles under the discharge chutes for filling, removes the filled bottles for capping, and replaces them with more empty bottles ready for filling. In the event of operator error, the Smart Bottle Sensor System automatically stops the machine and, when resolved, automatically resumes filling.
For growing contract packaging, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical companies, the versatile TC4 automatically counts tablets, capsules, caplets, lozenges, softgels, and other solid oral dose products with 99.95% accuracy at up to 2,000 per min, including transparent, translucent and opaque products.
The easy-to-use TC4 includes the company's proprietary touchscreen HMI as standard and is available with vibratory feeders, hoppers, and other accessories as options.
The portable, compact tablet counting machine measures 34 in. across x 21 in. deep x 30 in. high for easy setup and movement to serve multiple production lines.
