A pharmaceutical company who is a leader in global healthcare contacted Tadbik Systems to design a unique sterile tab debagging system. The main challenges were to create a machine that complies to the most stringent standards of sterile, pharmaceutical operation, as well as a very complex and a high nylon wrapping variance.
Tal Sitbon, CEO of Tadbik System explains: “The machine we created is an Automatic Tab Debagging System, designed in a custom-made engineering project. The main considerations were utmost sterile environment, safety and precision, which are standard requirements for sterile pharmaceutical operations. The key challenge was to design a robust system that handles successfully the vast range of tab’s nylon wrapping variability.
Our R&D team was able to address an unmet need, which was to automate the debagging process in a cost-effective way to maintain peak production rates and minimize downtime – all while improving efficiency”.
Tadbik System’s Tab Debagging System is capable of debagging sterile tabs, fed by a designated machine also provided by Tadbik Systems. It requires no operator intervention.
The machine operation consists of three main modules:
Main conveyor carries the tab through different stations
A unique, tailor-made system for opening and cutting of the tabs’ nylon wrapping
A separating mechanism to separate the tab from its nylon wrapping and transfer module to send the tab to the sterile room
Each and every module meets the highest safety and quality standards of the pharmaceutical industry.
