ConsiGma® Tablet Coating (TC) Modules

The ConsiGma® TC modules are based on the GEA high-performance tablet coating technology that gently and accurately deposits controlled amounts of coating materials onto tablet cores — even if they are hygroscopic or friable.

The ConsiGma® Tablet Coater is an all-in-one solution, capable of R&D, clinical and full-scale production using the same system. It can be used in both batch and continuous production, either as stand-alone, in bin-2-bin systems, or linked to any up-or downstream process.

Highly agile and available in 4 standard set-ups, the ConsiGma® TC can coat any amount of tablets between 1.5 kg and 500 kg within a 8 hour shift (up to 1000 kg for a twin-coater system). Nominalthroughputs (from 15 kg/h up to 60 kg/h, to be verified by testing) are flexible due to the interchangeable coating wheels, and the systems can be customized with a number of options to suit the customer’s needs.

They are suitable for applying aesthetic, enteric or API coating in a very accurate way and are ideal for pharmaceutical companies who wish to benefit from a higher process control and resulting higher quality of the product.

The Conductor 4.0 software ensures seamless control of the entire process, full reporting and tracking of OOS. Material genealogy can be integrated into the controls. Handshaking with up- or downstream equipment can also be offered.

Standard Configuration

  • 1 or 2 coater wheels

  • 2 sizes of wheel available
