Zwellwag Z-100

The operator places bottles or vials onto the rotary table which are filled automatically and re- buffered. The Z-100 is a rotary vial/bottle handling system designed for use with liquid, cream, powder etc. fillers and is a fully automatic filling system. The system can deliver up to 2'000 fills per hour. At the same time the Z-100 provides a consistent production quality that is unobtainable by use of a manual or a semi-automatic system. Even unstable vials/bottles can be filled by Z-100 as the speed by which the vials/bottles are presented at the filling needle is fully adjustable. Furthermore, solutions can be designed to handle bottles with special shapes. Liquids can be filled automatically in volumes from 0.1 ml to 1000 ml (relevant is the maximum diameter of 90 mm). Cream can be filled in volumes from 1 ml to 1000 ml (relevant is the maximum diameter of 90 mm). A key element in Zellwag’s product line is the care taken to minimize production downtime and, at the same time, ensure clean or sterile production. Z-100 is true to this concept. A bottle size change on the Z- 100 – Filler combination takes approximately 2 minutes, whereas a complete product and bottle size change can be completed in 5 minutes. The Z-100 can be extended to fit a wide variety of production requirements. Z-100, complete with filling head, in standard with a free programmable diving nozzle and used in conjunction with one of Zellwag’s crimp or screw capping machines, provides a simple and flexible mean of production, which can be either table top mounted, stand alone or placed inside a typical LAF cabinet. This combination carries a highly competitive price. The Z-100 is mainly made of stainless steel and anodised aluminium for cleanroom environments and it's outstanding performance and reliability is demonstrated by many installations.

Rationalisation effect:
the Z-100 filling machine with the Z-CAP-20 capping machine can be operated by one (1) person. The output is the same as with two (2) persons in a semi-automatic system.

Z-110k Closing Machine

  • Closure infeed by means of inclined table
  • Optional alternatives: vibrating bowl, belt conveyor (for caps and dispenser closures), turntable Servomotoric pre- and post-screwing axis with snap-on function, 3-jaw gripper and vacuum based closure holding, suitable for a variety of closures
  • Vacuum based container holding instead of clamping (no scratching)
  • In process control: torque, rotation angle and position control by the screwing axes, cross control with sensors: no closure in place or closure too high / inclined with autmatic ejection of non-conform containers
  • Easy format change without tools: Gripper jaws clicked in,lateral guidance of closure conveyor and pick nest can be
    adapted by means of setting knobs with digital counters
Customer benefits
  • Fully automatic process run in compact monobloc design
  • Easy to clean
  • Modular closure infeed options dependant on the closure type
  • Snap-on and screw-on closures on the same machine
  • Vacuum holding of containers and closures, suitable for sensitive products (no scratching)
  • Pre- and postscrewing unit for an increased and optimal output
  • Tool-free format part change according to the poka joke-principle(Japanese, engl. «avoid unfortunate errors»)
  •  Format parts are avoided wherever possible
  •  All electric parameters are saved within recipes,all mechanical setting values are reproducible
  • Expandable system

Z-800 Syringe filling and stoppering machine

  • The filling arm with nozzle and the stoppering arm with applicator laterally pivot in
  • The nest rotates towards the arm
  • Filling and stoppering can be done in sequence
  • The filling arm with nozzle dives into the container.
  • Optional filling on precise level (cartridges)
  • The stoppering arm picks a stopper, builds a dense system with the container by a lid, tears a vacuum and mechanically inserts the stopper when the target vacuum is reached
  • Stoppering (and optional filling) is done under vaccuum
Customer benefits
Stringent aseptic concept
  • no motors and slides are over open containers producing particles and disturbing the laminar air flow
  •  direct closing of the container after filling
  • minimal movement distances and all potential nest configurations (flexibility) are possible as the nest is turning as well
  • Flexibility: vials, syringes and cartridges can be processed
  • Easy cleaning, product and format change
  • Vacuum is 100 % monitored and controlled at each filled unit, up to - 950 mbar relative to atmosphere
  • Minimal residual air, nitrogen gassing optional
  • Liquid and viscos products such as collagen and hyaluronic acid can be filled
  • No idle strokes and no product loss due to precise filling on level (cartridges)
