TC3270009A - King Technocount T8 Tablet and Capsule Counting Machine
The new automatic tablet capsule counter King Technocount T8 is a GMP tablet counting machine designed for accurately counting tablets, capsules and dragee (up to a maximum of 25 mm diameter in counts of between 1 and 10,000) into a wide range of bottles or containers. The filling rate is adjustable and dependent on the characteristics of both bottle and product. A bulk product hopper retains and progressively delivers tablets to a vibratory feeder tray which allows controlled and smooth feeding of product. The vibratory tray can be adjusted to change the rate of product feed in conjunction with the adjustable hopper gate. An integrated sieve tray also separates any unwanted chips and dust which are then removed by a vacuum take-off. Tablets then drop onto a rotating glass disc where they are nudged by a set of adjustable deflectors which pre-orientate the products into a single stream before passing into a take-off guide assembly. The products proceed to pass through a sensor beam which counts the tablets before continuing on through a divider flap mechanism into one of two dispensing funnels where pre-positioned bottles or containers are waiting. When the count target is reached the divider flap switches position and redirects the product into the next bottle or container which is pre-positioned beneath the funnel.
