Jona, Switzerland: – Internationally respected dry granulation experts Gerteis are headed back to the big Interpack trade fair in Dusseldorf to show new solutions, including new technology for its renowned Mini-Pactor®, Macro-Pactor® and Polygran® roller compactors.
The Gerteis display at booth E04 in Hall 16 at the Dusseldorf Exhibition Center will stage on demand live demonstrations of its latest generation Macro-Pactor®, as well as the all new Mini-Pactor® featuring various technology upgrades, including new HMI package and PLC-based redesign.
High containment solutions
Designed primarily for R&D use, these machines feature sophisticated capabilities for small-scale continuous production under high containment, using constant ribbon measurement with highly reduced uncompacted fines.
The Gerteis stand will also feature representation from UK-based S3 Process, who will debut its latest product, the hi-tech PuroVaso total isolation pharmaceutical container.
Gerteis President and CEO Paul Gerteis will be on stand for the last three days of the show, Monday May 8 to Wednesday May 10.
“Interpack is a key show for Gerteis and one we regularly attend,” said Hartmut vom Bey, Gerteis VP for Sales &Technology.
“This is a great opportunity to extend relationships and deepen partnerships with our customer base of research and process scientists and technical decision makers among pharma companies, CROs and CMOs who are looking for the most efficient and reliable dry granulation and compaction technology,” said Mr. vom Bey.
“This is also a great chance to say thank you to our loyal customers in this our 30th Anniversary Year,” added Hartmut vom Bey.
Gerteis Maschinen + Processengineering AG is a Swiss-based company that has rapidly established itself as a world leader in the field of premium roller compactors. The company’s products and services cover all aspects of dry granulation processes, with unparalleled experience in this field built up since the company was founded in 1986.
Gerteis manufactures a wide range of high quality containment roller compactors that are versatile enough to process a vast range of powders, even notoriously problematic ones at both laboratory and production scales. The company’s patented technologies are widely used by the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries.
Rapidly increasing demand recently forced the company to move from its original site in Jona on the shores of Lake Zurich to larger and purpose designed premises nearby, in a move completed at the end of 2013.
As well as manufacturing machinery, Gerteis offers complete solution packages that help customers increase productivity including support on identifying ideal formulations and in-house training courses on dry granulation processing. Gerteis constantly seeks to expand its knowledge on dry granulation, participating in numerous research collaborations with German universities.
