Nutraceuticals: Automate the Transfer of Tablets and Capsules and Reduce Waste with Vacuum Conveying Technology
Vacuum conveying technology has been used to a great advantage within the pharmaceutical and food industries. Since neutraceuticals are positioned inbetween pharmaceutical and food industries, it can benefit from the key technological developments aimed at both. Some of the products in neutraceutical markets are made as tablets and capsules. The technologies currently used in the industry to transfer tablets and capsules as well as manual labor are not yet as optimal for the task as vacuum conveing technology. Tablets need to be moved around the manufacturing plant, transferring them from one processing unit to another, for instance from a coating drum to a packaging line. During such transfer and handling plentiful tablets/capsules either chip or have to be handled manually – both resulting in waste.
With the development of technology, vacuum conveyors have advanced to be able to replace manual labor in handling delicate objects. Elaborated in this white paper are key aspects to consider when choosing vacuum conveyor for the transfer of tablets or capsules.
