Reed-Lane, a New Jersey-based contract packaging provider that serves leading pharmaceutical manufacturers, has installed its sixth bottling line for solid dose RX and OTC products. The new installation serves to expand the company’s packaging capabilities and overall capacity, and is intended especially for the packaging of larger fill levels at smaller overall product volumes.
The new line consists of the following modules:
- Bottle unscrambler that cleans and orients bottles
- Slat filler that can process tablets, capsules and liquid-gels for a wide range of bottle sizes and fill levels
- Metal detector
- Capper for both CR and CT closures
- Induction sealer
- Labeler that can apply 1-ply, 2-ply or booklet-style labels with a printer and vision system
- Topsert feeder
The new line also can be outfitted to place sachet desiccants, canister desiccants, and cotton or rayon in bottles. In addition to topsert attachment, the line also can incorporate tamper-evident seals to capped bottles and/or bundles of bottles, as desired.
“Reed-Lane is committed to regularly upgrading and enhancing both our overall capacity and service portfolio, stemming from our core set of competencies,” said Patricia Elvin, President of Reed-Lane. “In our current period of growth, incorporating new equipment on an ongoing basis is a key component to meeting and surpassing our customers’ needs.”
