Overview

Anritsu capsule checkweighers weigh capsules at high speed and high accuracy.

Industry-leading weighing performance enhances both production and research & development efforts.

Best weighing solution for capsules containing active pharmaceutical ingredients.

Slight variances in active pharmaceutical ingredients can have a large impact on a drug's efficacy. Anritsu's force balance weighing technology provides the industry's highest weight accuracy of +/-0.5 mg*, meeting even the most stringent standards for capsules containing high potency active pharmaceutical ingredients.

*Based on our survey results.

Stable and reliable feeding of semi-locked capsules - Achieved!

Our unique capsule handling technology eliminates empty capsules from bouncing and provides stable feeding throughout the inspection process. Minimizing product vibration is critical for high accuracy weighing. Accurately weighing empty capsules can also improve the reliability of clinical trials and new drug testing.

Stable and reliable feeding of semi-locked capsules - Achieved!
Capsules in the magazine are fed by the shutter individually. The capsule holding unit minimizes any vibration generated from the impact of the drop from the magazine. The capsule is then fed onto the weigh table.

Every capsule in the system is monitored and tracked. Three rejection gates remove all defective products.

High precision weighing - made easy.

At a glance complete line monitoring.

Large touch paneI and user-friendly display offer simplified operation. Complete line status displayed on a single screen.

Large, intuitive touch screen GUI provides fast evaluation of production trends.
Displays histograms and trending information as well as underweight and overweight counts for each line, up to 10 lines at a time.

Designed within simplicity and safety in mind.

Tool-free parts removal
Tool-less changeover parts for capsules sizes 000 to 5.

Preventing changeover part errors
An alarm will alert the operator if a wrong or mismatched part is installed on the system.

Protection of weighcells
Overload protection mechanism protects the load cell from accidental overload during magazine changeover.

Quick and easy sensitivity confirmation
It only takes 30 seconds for the built-in weight check to verify weigh cell sensitivity. Time, effort and risk of making an error are greatly reduced compared to traditional verification procedures. Each weigh cell can be individually calibrated with the built-in weights.

Data security
Anritsu capsule checkweighers comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 standard for electronic records data compliance.

Changeover of magazineChangeover of magazine
There are two built-in verification weightsThere are two built-in verification weights available, 500 and 2,000 mg. The weight closest to the capsules in upper and lower limit weight values should be used for proper calibration.
