These days we are running a new Remote FAT of an OPTIMA Tablet Coater for a major pharmaceutical company from the United States and Algeria.
In order to help our customers to participate from the distance, we have developed the STE Remote FAT System. Fixed cameras have been deployed around the machine and inside the coating drum, and mobile cameras allow us to show all the details. With a remote connection to the control panel, the customer is able to check all the actions we are doing.
The test consisted of a 200kg batch of tablet film coating, with custom recipe entry and automatic mode. To offer a complete customer experience, we have given the customer the remote management of the machine from its own facilities, so they have been able to enter all the parameters of its own recipe for a process with 5 operating steps.
The machine in the test is an OPTIMA Tablet Coater 200, a perforated coating pan designed for the film coating of tablets or pellets.
■ Increases the batch size range from 10% to 100%.
■ Optimizes the parameter adjustment fully automatically.
■ All in the same drum.
■ Automatic arm extension system in terms of distance and angle.
■ Automatic adjustment by sonar depending on the level of charge.
■ Path and airflow self-adjustable according to the tablet’s load for perfect performance.
■ Recipe editing.
■ Detachable deflectors.
■ SCHLICK® nozzles.
■ Central nozzle arm.
■ WIP accessories for automatic cleaning.
■ WATSON MARLOW® peristaltic pump.
■ Remote connection.
The customer is being able to check all these points and much more as if he was here with us.
We are pleased to bring our customers closer to a live FAT experience. A great success that we will repeat in future tests.
