Machine Description:

The King Technocount T8 multi-channel vibratory tablet and capsule counting machine is a cutting-edge solution designed to accurately count tablets and capsules in high-speed production environments. This advanced machine combines innovative technology with a robust construction to ensure reliable performance and efficient counting.

Key Features:

1. Multi-Channel Configuration: The machine is equipped with eight counting channels, allowing for simultaneous counting of tablets and capsules. This configuration enhances productivity by maximising the number of products counted at any given time.
2. Vibratory Feeder Tray System: Each counting channel is supplied by a single vibratory feeder tray that efficiently feeds tablets and capsules to the count head. The vibratory motion ensures a smooth and consistent flow of products, preventing jams, double stacking and facilitating precise counting.
3. High-Speed Counting Sensors: The machine utilises high-speed counting sensors with advanced detection technology. These sensors accurately and quickly detect and count tablets or capsules, even at high production rates, ensuring efficient counting and minimising errors.
4. Adjustable Vibration Frequency: Operators have the flexibility to adjust the vibration frequency of the feeder trays. This feature allows for optimal feeding and counting performance, accommodating different product characteristics and sizes.
5. User-Friendly Interface: The machine features a 15” user-friendly touch panel, that enables easy operation and monitoring. Operators can set counting parameters, adjust settings, and access real-time production data with convenience.
6. Robust Construction: Built with durability in mind, the machine is constructed using high-quality materials that can withstand the demands of continuous operation. Its robust design ensures long-term reliability, minimizing downtime and maintenance needs.
7. Versatile Compatibility: The machine is designed to handle a wide range of tablet and capsule sizes and shapes. Its versatile configuration eliminates the need for frequent changeovers or format part replacements, improving efficiency and flexibility.
8. Precise Counting and Error Minimisation: With its advanced shutter blade mechanisms and reliable sensors, the machine provides precise counting results, minimising errors and ensuring accurate quality control. This feature is essential for industries where precise counting is crucial.
9. Dust Extraction System: To maintain cleanliness and prevent cross-contamination, the machine is equipped with an integrated dust extraction system. This system efficiently removes dust and debris generated during the counting process, promoting a hygienic production environment.

The multi-channel vibratory tablet and capsule counting machine is a high-performance solution that combines speed, accuracy, and ease of use. Its versatile compatibility, robust construction, and precise counting capabilities make it an indispensable asset for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and other industries requiring efficient tablet and capsule counting.

Operational Details:

Containers are fed into the multi-channel tablet and capsule counting machine using a single lane stainless steel sanitary conveyor system (not included). The conveyor system ensures a hygienic and controlled transfer of containers to the counting machine.

Once the containers reach the counting machine, they are carefully controlled and indexed by a pneumatic bottle gating system. This system positions each container individually under the filling funnel, ensuring precise alignment for accurate counting.

The filling process is then facilitated, with tablets or capsules being dispensed into the containers through the filling funnels. The machine monitors the count, and once the predetermined product count has been reached, the system initiates a changeover cycle.

During the changeover cycle, the filled container is indexed out of the counting area, making way for an empty container to take its place. This seamless transition allows for continuous counting and filling without interruption.

By employing a combination of conveyor system, bottle gating system, and precise indexing, the multi-channel tablet and capsule counting machine ensures efficient and accurate counting of tablets and capsules while maintaining a steady flow of containers throughout the process.
