After nearly a three year absence, leading global equipment suppliers – Fitzpatrick, Matcon, Microfluidics, Quadro and Steridose, returned to the Javits Center in New York to exhibit at INTERPHEX 2022. Under the IDEX Material Processing Technologies (MPT) umbrella, the companies exhibited together on Booth No.: 2741, displaying an innovative range of equipment including lab, pilot and production-scale ranges.
All IDEX MPT Inc. business units afford brand name process equipment and global support service solutions that meet customer-specific requirements with a focus on the Pharmaceutical, Food & Chemical markets.
Our enthusiastic Sales Team were very happy to once again, be at an “in-person” event and eagerly awaited the opening of the Show to be able to greet visitors to our booth.
Who Attends INTERPHEX?
Purported to be the premier pharmaceutical, biotechnological, and device development/manufacturing event to “Experience Science through Commercialization”, INTERPHEX attracts over 10,000 global industry professionals, as well as 625+ leading suppliers to it's New York location. Delegates come together to “Learn It, Experience It, Procure It” via the combination of a no-cost technical conference, exhibits, demonstrations and networking events with which to leverage quality, efficiency and cost-effectiveness in today’s global market.
What IDEX MPT, Inc. Had To Offer
With a range of equipment reflecting the very latest advances in both powder & liquids processing as well as material handling, and a new contemporary booth design, IDEX MPT was well-positioned to showcase their state-of-the-art technology for manufacturers within the Pharmaceutical and associated industries.
Fitzpatrick’s new LCS – Lab Compaction System was on display at the Show and drew a lot of attention. Affording scalable benchtop high-performance dry granulation with production-scale capability, the LCS is designed and delivered by the most trusted name in roller compaction technology for more than seventy years.
The LCS processes powders with the same pressure as larger production-scale roller compactors. This ensures your development projects can progress from the lab to production with confidence. The LCS is a low-volume benchtop system for R&D and trial batch production.
SDx™ Series Production-Scale Powder Processing Exchangeable Platform
The SDx™ Series from Fitzpatrick & Quadro is the next generation in powder processing and size reduction. It is one of the world’s most advanced production-scale milling and screening platforms offering three distinct processing solutions on a single, common drive.
The SDx™ Series affords the ability to easily transfer between production-scale Quadro® Comil® conical milling, FlexSift security screening, and Fitzpatrick hammer milling. Thanks to its SMARTdetect™ technology, head recognition and RPM range adjustments are made automatically, providing the ability to change heads in seconds, thereby improving production efficiency.
The new SDx™ Series offers three functionalities on one platform, providing the lowest long-term cost of ownership when compared to the purchase of individual units.
How INTERPHEX 2022 Compares To Earlier Years
The number of visitors to our booth over the three days of the Show was high, with many customers stopping by to say hello, and to discuss active projects.
We look forward to following up with new contacts and being able to provide equipment demonstrations & product testing to validate our capabilities at our new Technology Centre in Waterloo, ON, Canada. Positioned alongside the IDEX MPT manufacturing facility, the Centre offers a range of possibilities for our customers to fulfil their application requirements.
A Perspective From Those On The Front Line
Brian Ayling, Fitzpatrick Sales Director - Dry Granulation, Americas, Australasia had this to say about his experience at the Show:
“The LCS – Lab Compaction System was definitely the highlight of the Show for IDEX MPT. This is the first time the LCS has been seen in the Americas, and it proved to be a major draw. Interest emanated from people curious about the technology in general, as well as from individuals familiar with Fitzpatrick roller compactors who were lured by the appeal of the new truly benchtop model.
Several visitors were familiar with other benchtop machines on the market. It was easy to highlight the significant performance improvements the LCS offers to these researchers”.
Kelley McCabe, Microfluidics Product Manager commented that:
“It was great being back at the Javits Center again for INTERPHEX. We had our best booth construction ever, showcasing a range of equipment from across all of our business units. We enjoyed excellent engagement with potential new customers to our booth, as well as greeting existing customers”.
