HIGH SPEED – TFS 80-4/-6/-8

Highest performance and reliability, intelligent controls for optimal process cycles and outstanding process safety have turned IWK into the market leader with automatic tube filling machines for medium and upper outputs.

The new tube filling line TFS 80-8 guarantees complete weight checking and control, thus reducing tube overfilling significantly. With a fill rate of 750 tubes per minute, the TFS 80-8 is faster than any other tube filling machine in the world.

A wide range of options and additional equipment such as IWKs tube feeding systems, and seamless integration of downstream equipment guarantees that today’s most sophisticated tube packaging demands are met.
