Matcon IBC solutions are widely used in both the API and Solid Dosage industries. As a result, we have many successful installations in both branded and generic companies around the world.
API and Solid Dosage solutions for the Pharmaceutical Industry
Pharmaceutical manufacturing is commonly carried out as a 2-stage process:
- Stage 1 - Produce the API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) which is the chemically active substance of a drug.
- Stage 2 - The Oral Solid Dosage manufacturing process, which involves mixing of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) with excipients to create solid dosage forms such as powder, granules, tablets, capsules and pellets.
Matcon’s IBC solutions offer unique materials handling and processing benefits at each stage of the manufacturing process.
For API manufacturers, this includes the ability to completely and automatically discharge solvent rich, “wet cake” solids.
For Oral Solid Dosage manufacturers, the Matcon IBC System avoids segregation of blended powders and granules. Also, Matcon provide complete IBC Tablet Handling Solutions for LEAN manufacture of tablets and capsules.
Matcon’s solutions for Oral Solid Dosage are also applicable to manufacturers of Nutraceutical and Veterinary products.
