Production areas

Mixing area
ico-Mixing area
  • Making mixtures for tableting, encapsulating, or sachet-packing.
  • Allows to obtain mixtures using both the dry mixing method and wet granulation.
  • Our extensive experience with vitamins, minerals, and extracts, as well as careful selection of active components and excipients allow us to obtain homogeneous mixtures with different qualitative and quantitative parameters.
  • We use the most bioavailable and stable active substances allowed to use in the production of dietary supplements.
  • The quality of excipients meets to the main pharmacopoeias of the world.
Mixing area
Tableting area
ico-Tableting area
  • The area is equipped with high-performance equipment. For instance, a Korsh AG rotary tablet press (Germany) produces up to 300,000 tablets per hour.
  • We can manufacture products of various shapes (from flat-cylindrical to oval) and sizes (from 6 to 20 mm).
  • During the tableting, the tablet quality is controlled using automatic electronic systems such as an electronic laboratory assistant and a metal detector.
Tableting area
Encapsulating area
ico-Encapsulating area
  • Mixtures are packed into hard gelatin capsules of various sizes.
  • We use various methods for putting the mixture into a capsule, which allows us to work with powders of various technological properties: from easily free-flowing and non-compressible to sticky and difficult to dose.
  • Each filled capsule passes through an empty capsule rejection machine and a metal detector.
Encapsulating area
Coating area
ico-Coating area
  • We can apply different types of tablet coating film: decorative, protective, or modified release.
  • We use water-based coatings only in line with the Company’s fire safety and environmental protection policy.
  • A patented VTF development – a film coating with special moisture-proof properties – ensures the stability of compositions of any complexity based on vitamins, minerals, and plant extracts.
  • The film coating color is selected at the customer’s request.
Coating area
Sachet-packing area
ico-Sachet-packing area
  • The powder packing speed is up to 13,000 single sachets per hour.
  • We can pack powders of different composition into double (duplex) and triple (triplex) sachets.
  • The maximum weight of packed powder is 25 g. This provides the convenience and accuracy of weighing compositions of various complexity.
Sachet-packing area
Liquid area
ico-Liquid area
  • At the area, liquid non-sterile solutions are made and bottled.
  • We use methods of various complexity: from simple dissolution of components to preparation of complex microemulsion systems by temperature phase inversion.
Liquid area
Packing area
ico-Packing area
  • The area is equipped with a MEDISEAL production line (Germany), which allows us to fully automate the packaging of tablets and capsules – from primary packaging in a blister to group packaging.
  • Maximum capacity of one machine is up to 400 blisters per minute.
  • We can pack up to 3 different tablets (capsules) in one blister.
  • With our high-precision control systems of the packaging line, we check each piece of product for weight, appearance, printed and packaging materials compliance.
