Marchesini Group To Launch New Technology At INTERPHEX 2016


-Extrafill, a NEW filling and stoppering machine for nested syringes, developed to meet the growing demands of packaging disposable pre-filled syringes in the North American marketplace- 

NEW YORK, NY; March XX, 2015 – International Pharmaceutical Expo (INTERPHEX) the premier event dedicated to pharmaceutical and biotechnology innovation, technology and knowledge from development through commercialization sponsored by the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), today announced that Marchesini Group will launch their new technology, Extrafill, at INTERPHEX 2016. Marchesini Group is a leading supplier of primary and secondary packaging solutions to the pharmaceutical, biotech and cosmetic industries and makes it return to exhibiting at INTERPHEX after a three-year hiatus.

“INTERPHEX 2016 is an important platform that allows us to demonstrate to existing and new customers the technical ability and forward thinking of Marchesini Group for the industry,” said Roger Toll, Executive Vice President, Marchesini Group USA. “We look forward to welcoming everyone to booth 3125 to discuss questions regarding their requirements in aseptic and packaging areas of the industry with our team of experts that will be present. Hope to see you there”.

“We are delighted that Marchesini Group has chosen INTERPHEX to launch their exciting new technology,” said Ed Several, Senior Vice President, INTERPHEX. “Marchesini continues to meet the ever-increasing demands of today’s sophisticated and quality-conscious packaging market.”

Extrafill, Marchesini’s new addition, is compact and designed to accommodate from two to five stoppering stations. The final outcome is a machine capable of producing twelve thousand pieces per hour and with precise batching operations, thanks to systems that center the syringes and completely protect them during the filling process to avoid contamination and to ensure a sterile process. Extrafill is equipped with peristaltic filling pumps and an innovative statistical check by-batched weigher, which offers economical and technical benefits compared with traditional solutions. 

All the production phases are integrated in one monobloc unit designed to combine the two tub opening and syringe filling/stoppering operations under just one isolator. Once loaded on the machine, the tub passes under the system that heats the lidding edges. The tub then passes under the opening station where a robotic arm peels off the Tyvek® protective film and pushes it onto a loading belt to continue towards the filling and stoppering stations.  

The robot is an innovative gripper system that moves just like a human hand and is the outcome of research and development activities carried out by Marchesini Group to innovate the automatic machinery industry. Both the mechanical and software of the delidding (peeling) systems have indeed been developed entirely by the R&D team with the aim of devising a specific robotised system capable of handling the product with outstanding efficiency in sterile conditions.

Several continued, “This year, INTERPHEX 2016 offers more technology launches than ever before. Attendees have the opportunity to learn from industry and market leaders, such as the Marchesini team, to experience first-hand, the state-of-the-art technologies that address their site and project challenges and to find solutions to cost effectively develop and manufacture products.”
