Saving time with a CI Precision SADE weight sorter

The SADE SP-B40 Benchtop weighs individual capsules much faster than other scales

Apotheek Guido Meeuws, a well-established pharmacy in Roeselare Belgium that produces bespoke medication and prescriptions for individuals, has started saving time with a SADE weight sorter.

Quality control is a key issue for the business owner, Guido Meeuws. His capsule-making-machine however, was more than eight years old, which required him to weigh individual capsules on a laboratory scale.

The process consumed too much of his team's valuable time, which consists of only eight people. It also cost him an extra 10 hours a week in overtime and prolonged the process of preparing medicine for his customers.

Guido looked at what was available on the market and identified the CI Precision SADE SP-B40 Benchtop tablet and capsule weight sorter as the ideal solution.

The SADE SP-B40 Benchtop can individually weigh just over one capsule per second. A typical batch size of 100 capsules can now be weighed in about a minute and a half, something that used to take more than an hour to do.

In addition, each batch is summarised in a report. Using the SP Connect software, this data can be saved as a pdf on an external PC.

Guidoi Meeuws commented on the benefits of the SADE tablet & capsule weight sorter: “The machine is reliable, and we all find it simple to use. A lot of time is saved and we can produce medication for our customers quicker than before”.
