20/02/2017 Mixing and tablet-coating innovations at interpack

Gebr. Lödige, Paderborn, Germany, will be launching at interpack, 4-11 May, the LC Lab which has been designed to produce highly efficient tablet coatings on a laboratory scale. In addition, the company will be presenting on Stand B78, Hall 6, a granulator specially developed for production of capsule coffee powder. The basis for this is the MGT mixing granulator, a vertical system for blending and producing pharmaceutical powders and granulates. This mixer type fulfils the special requirements for manufacture of capsule coffee with specially developed mixing tools and a reinforced drive. 
 
A low-maintenance mixing mechanism, short mixing times with top mixing quality and high reproducibility of batches – precisely these requirements are satisfied by a mixing technique introduced by Lödige many decades ago and featuring a mechanically generated fluid bed. The potential of the proven method in today’s production environment will be demonstrated at the show by an FKM 1200 ploughshare mixer. The ploughshare paddles arranged on a shaft rotate as mixing elements in the horizontal, cylindrical drum. This sets the powdery, granular or fibrous bulk material into three-dimensional movement and the paddles mix quickly and precisely through constant contact with the entire product. Last but not least, Lödige will be focusing on continuous production processes in the pharmaceutical industry. As a supplier of both batch and continuous systems, the company actively supports the trend towards exploiting the characteristic strengths of continuous processes for the manufacture of medicinal products. www.loedige.de
