    2-component dispenser for compressible material dosing

    The static-dynamic mixer vipro-DUOMIX is perfectly suited for two-component materials with very different viscosities, extreme mixing ratios and high-pressure sensitivity. The 2-component dispenser will be launched at the ILA in Berlin from April 25-29, 2018. Technology for compressible fluids & pastes Like all products in the ViscoTec portfolio, the vipro-DUOMIX also relies on the technology […]

  • 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. The large bakeries face the challenge of meeting the high demand. Automatic production lines make it […]

  • Animated video about 1-component print head vipro-HEAD

    The 1-component print head vipro-HEAD, for three-dimensional printing of one-component liquids, in video: The metering component developed especially for 3D printing covers all relevant facts. At the beginning of the video the structure of the print head is explained – both inside and outside. The tried and tested ViscoTec endless piston principle must not be […]

  • Less waste due to “clean” filling

    The fact that we use more and more products on the move has a clear impact on packaging development. It is hard to imagine everyday life without them: Food that is packed in sachets, stick packs or pouches. They reflect our fast-paced lifestyle and demographic change. Convenience food, such as ketchup and salad dressing, is […]

  • 1-component print head for viscous fluids and pastes

    New 1-component print head: Additive manufacturing processes are a great alternative to classical processing techniques and aim at a constructionally optimized and cost-effective production of components. 3D printing now includes a variety of technologies that can be used in different 3D printer versions. ViscoTec uses established dosing systems with the endless piston principle specifically for […]

  • Flavours and additives in personalized food

    Individually designed, functional foods will soon be the focus of our diet. As a counterpart to today’s mass production, with the same ingredients, tailor-made food will increasingly be on the shopping list and produced according to health, taste or personal preferences of each individual. Even today there are enough examples: specially prepared muesli, individually designed […]
