  • Blisterabfüllung halbautomatisch

    Suspensions and their filling

    Suspensions are dispersions of solid particles in a liquid. The solids correspond to the dispersed phase and the liquids to the dispersing agent. The production of suspensions enables the conversion of sparingly soluble active substances into a liquid pharmaceutical form. Therefore, suspensions are used in various pharmaceutical applications – both internally and on the skin. […]

  • Heating function for 3D print head vipro-HEAD

    Fluids and pastes such as waxes, ceramics and polymers can be heated to temperatures of up to 70 °C with the new heating function. This is important in the printing process in order to be able to process certain materials better. ViscoTec’s heating function can be easily attached to the one-component print head vipro-HEAD. A […]

  • Hochviskose Cannbinoide in Spritzen abgefüllt mit ViscoTec Abfüllpumpen

    Filling Cannabinoids

    After lengthy discussions, the German Parliament approved an amendment to the Narcotics Act on 19 January 2017 and the law came into force on 10 March 2017. Cannabinoids are now officially approved as therapeutic agents in Germany: Which cannabinoids are there? Which forms of dosage are available? And how can the viscous products be filled […]

  • How does the jam get into a berlin doughnut?

    It is carnival season once again, so doughnuts are now back on the scene in Germany. Different flavors and fillings, e.g. strawberry jam, eggnog cream or chocolate pudding make the hearts of those with a sweet tooth beat faster.
