Pharmintech Bologna



Lock Inspection Systems will be showcasing their products at the Pharmintech exhibition (17 – 19 april 2013). Visitors are invited to stop by booth D17 in hall 19 to view the latest in metal detection equipment.

The last years Lock and their solid partner Packital experienced a large growth in sales into the Italian pharmaceutical market. Packital and Lock have been working closely together to introduce the latest INSIGHT range of metal detection systems to pharmaceutical manufacturers across Italy and giving them tangible benefits for their businesses. Together we are now able to offer a very high level of sales & service support with quick reaction times and effective service support on site.

During Pharmitech visitors can see the best metal detection equipment in the market. Lock will be showing their stand-alone Insight PH Pharmaceutical metal detector for tablets and capsules, the Insight PH VF Pharmaceutical Vertical Fall metal detector for pharmaceutical powders and granules and an Insight VF Vertical Fall metal detector for the inspection of powders & granules with a high throughput rate.

Insight PH metal detectorThe Insight PH for the inspection of tablets and capsules is the benchmark machine in the pharmaceutical market. For decades Lock has been a pioneer with this product by continuously improving the product to meet the increasing demands of pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. The Insight PH combines an ultra-high detection performance with market-leading stability. Therefor this unit is more than capable of accepting high output rates of tablet presses and dedusting equipment up to 30.000 tablets or capsules per minute, rejecting any minute metal contaminations with high efficiency. The Insight PH is well-known for easy validation using the IQ, OQ, PQ documentation. The completely stand-alone unit can be manoeuvred and adapted to your production process by using its easy-to-use gas strut and angle adjustment.

The Insight PH VF can be installed to inspect powders and granules prior to the encapsulation or compacting process. Early detection of contaminants can avoid damage to expensive tooling and will keep down-time to a minimum. The Insight PH VF can be supplied with several reject mechanisms such as the completely dust-tight “sealed valve” reject, which is suitable for the inspection of API’s.

Lastly Lock will show the visitors the Insight VF Vertical Fall metal detector for the inspection of powders and granules that have to be inspected at high throughput rates. The Insight VF inspects free-falling powders or granules at capacities of up to 50 tons per hour and still assuring a very high level of detection performance. The system can be fitted with a “Sealed Valve” or “Cowbell” reject depending on the nature of the product.

The Lock Sales team will be more than happy to explain the benefits that these machines will bring to your production processes. To OEM relations Lock can offer an open mind and provide flexible solutions and support to successfully integrate a metal detector into your product.
