      C2100 64 Reduced cleaning time

      Reduced cleaning time by 600 hours with piFLOW®p

      Background

      A contract manufacturer for solid dosage forms develops and produces multi-layered tablets, film-coated tablets, sugar-coated tablets, pellets and hard gelatine capsules. In a highly competitive market, productivity improvements and reduced cleaning times create a strong competitive edge – something the company searched for when looking for new production solutions.

      Solution

      The piFLOW®p vacuum conveyor replaced Piab’s own old VC conveyor for the conveying process of powder to tablet presses.

      Result

      The cleaning process was reduced from three to two hours, giving one hour more production time. The new conveyors also gave improvements in the working environment thanks to lighter equipment and fewer parts of the machine, reducing the possibility of mix-up of parts.

      The labor cost of cleaning was reduced by €9,000/year and the increased productivity equals to approximately €15,000/year. The return of investment in Piab products was reached in 20 months.
