Romaco Kilian and Theegarten-Pactec join forces at Interpack

The companies will showcase a high-speed line for tableting and packing soup cubes.


FPC5 interpack KTS 1000 Romaco Kilian tablet press Theegarten-Pactec wrapping machine


For the first time, Romaco Kilian and Theegarten-Pactec will join forces at a trade fair to show a high speed line for tableting and packing soup cubes. This technology is currently the fastest in the market specifically for this particular application.

Comprised of a Romaco Kilian KTS 1000 tablet press and a Theegarten-Pactec FPC5 wrapping machine, the line is already used very successfully in the food industry to manufacture and pack soup cubes in flow wrap.

Romaco Kilian KTS 1000 high-speed press
The KTS 1000 high-speed press underlines Romaco Kilian’s proven expertise in tablets of all sizes. This powerful tablet press compresses up to 3,000 cubes a minute and is designed for manufacturing mono-layer, bi-layer and triple-layer formats; it can also be used to compress core-rod tablets or tablets for later core feeding. It is suited for both food and non-food applications in continuous 24/7 operation. Different fill shoe systems enable optimal filling of the dies. Even highly viscous or abrasive powders which are difficult to compress can be processed safely thanks to the dedicated tooling. The patented, wear-free punch brake magnets for constant re-dosing and the hydraulic overpressure protection are further technical highlights of the KTS 1000. The patented bellows protect the tablets from contamination with lubricants during compression; this not only improves product quality but also makes the process more reliable. The strict separation between the compaction and service areas prevents tablet dust from entering the machine compartment during the production process. Owing to the ingenious press design, users additionally profit from reduced costs and minimal effort for cleaning, replacing wearing parts and maintenance. The extremely robust KTS 1000 can be installed in non-air-conditioned production environments without any problems. The high overall equipment effectiveness is a key characteristic of Romaco Kilian’s KTS 1000, which can be integrated into a packaging line at any time at the customer’s request. Visitors to the trade fair will have a chance to see the joint Romaco Kilian and Theegarten-Pactec line live in action at the Theegarten booth.

On show at the Theegarten-Pactec booth at interpack in Dusseldorf/Germany from May 4 to 10, 2017 (Hall 4, Stand A21).
