AST’s Container Closing System (CCS) is a benchtop, semi-automatic machine that provides complete and accurate control of the syringe and cartridge closing process. The Container Closing System is able to close syringes or cartridges using both vacuum and vent-tube methods for a wide range of container sizes quickly and easily with only a few format part changes.
The Container Closing System was designed with cGMP in mind. Its compact, aseptic design provides complete compatibility with cleanrooms, bio-safety cabinets, laminar airflow hoods, and aseptic isolator environments.
Given the systems process versatility and the range of container sizes the system can handle, the Container Closing System is the ideal tool for any small-batch closing machine for pre-filled syringes and cartridges.
The syringe and cartridge closing process is electronically controlled to precisely position the piston into the syringe or cartridge under optimized conditions every time. The vacuum insertion process utilizes AST's patented multi-stage vacuum insertion method with a mechanical assist and is an ideal option for processing silicone-free syringes and cartridges commonly used in biologic applications. Changing over the machine for vent-tube or mechanical piston insertion is as easy as simply changing out a few format parts.
