- Simple, Modular, and Cost-Efficient Design Offering a New Standard in High-Volume Production-

NEW YORK, NY, RALEIGH, NC; February 17, 2015 – International Pharmaceutical Expo (INTERPHEX), the premier pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical event dedicated to innovation, technology and knowledge, and sponsored by the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), and KORSCH America, Inc., a subsidiary of KORSCH AG, a global leader in advanced tablet compression technology, announced it will launch the XT 600 High Speed Double Rotary Press at INTERPHEX, April 21-23, 2015 at the Javits Center, New York, NY.  

KORSCH developed a new and innovative double rotary press specifically geared toward the high volume production of single and bi-layer tablets. Featuring the KORSCH trademark robust construction, the XT 600 combines proven design in an elegant and cost effective platform. The exchangeable turret offers the flexibility to produce a tablet of virtually any size and shape with the highest efficiency. Built to be a workhorse with maximum uptime, the XT 600 is extremely well suited for any production environment which requires a high volume, flexible manufacturing.

“INTERPHEX offers the very latest in Innovation, Technologies and Knowledge,” said Ed Several, Senior Vice President and General Manager, INTERPHEX. “We are proud to offer the first, in-depth look and demonstration of the XT 600, an exciting new development in tablet compression technology. KORSCH is well-known around the world for innovation and an exceedingly high standard of quality, in terms of machine workmanship, precision and reliability. We are delighted to share this new technology, for the first time ever, with INTERPHEX development and manufacturing professionals.”

“KORSCH believes that INTERPHEX offers a great opportunity to launch the latest in tablet compression technology, our XT 600,” said Fred Murray, President, KORSCH America, Inc. “The robust and elegant design of the XT 600 offers a simplified and streamlined platform which is ideally suited for high efficiency, high volume production.  This focus and experience is the foundation for our broad and innovative product line for tablet compression technology. Visit us our during the show at booth 3341 to learn more about this exciting new technology.”

XT 600

The XT 600 offers a 60 kN or 100 kN compression column for precompression and main compression, and incorporates the proven compression dwell bar. In combination with the innovative and patented carrier plate design, this isolates vibration in the compression zone and minimizes the noise level, a key advantage of all KORSCH machines. 

The XT 600 offers an extremely space-efficient design, with a small footprint with ample access for cleaning, changeover, and turret exchange. Accessible, multi-function channels on the corners of the machine, are non-load bearing and provide a solution for the placement of cables, lubrication lines, and dust extraction ports. The result is an ergonomic and clean compression zone, streamlining changeover and turret exchange.

The XT 600 is complemented by a completely new HMI environment. The Smart-Touch HMI with 19-inch display provides an intuitive operating experience, allowing operators to move, zoom, and scroll content easily. The control capability is supplemented by a comprehensive array of multi-media online help, which features pictures, videos, drawings, and access to machine manuals, to support the machine operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting.
