NJM Partner Legacy Pharmaceutical Packaging Wins PMT Magazine Packaging Line of the Year Award
NJM management and staff are proud to announce that PMT Magazine awarded contract packager and NJM customer Legacy Pharmaceutical Packaging the eighth annual PMT Packaging Line of the Year Award for the unit-of-use-bottle line at its Earth City, MO plant.
Keystone of the line is NJM’s Cremer CF-622 tablet machine. Legacy relied on the fact that the unit is modular and completely servo driven, built for very accurate and repeatable product feeding, counting and filling. Its vibratory design is tailor-made for contract packagers. Because they are not specifically tailored to each tablet shape and size, vibratory systems can handle a variety of tablets with little to no changeover. Assuming the bottle neck diameter remains the same, vibratory counters usually require no change parts. That saves not only money but also time, improving changeover efficiency and allowing Legacy to be more responsive to the market.
It is not necessary to order different slats or bottle change parts to accommodate a new tablet or container size. This is especially valuable for a contract packager of generics, which call for a wider range of products with shorter times-to-market than branded drugs.
Legacy rounded out the bottle line with the following equipment:
- NJM beltorque™ Capper
- Enercon Induction Sealer
- NJM beltorque™ Retorquer
- NJM Bronco 130 Labeler, equipped with Optel Vision System
- Econocorp Twinsealer, customized for unit-of-use cartoning at line speeds
NJM staff worked closely with Legacy throughout installation and start-up and are thrilled by their success and this special recognition.
