Kramer AG Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Sep 08, 2015

Kramer AG invented and launched the first tablet deduster, the E7, to the world's pharmaceutical industry to address dusty tablets that caused a great deal of production problems.

According to a press release, Kramer’s invention proved successful in dedusting and deburring efficiency, making the Kramer name synonymous with dedusters. The E79 can still be found in many tablet production suites, which is a testament to the efficiency, quality, design and construction.

Kramer says it has become the worldwide market leader in tablet dedusting. Drawing upon 40 years of experience, the company has continued to innovate, producing many more firsts. These include the invention of the first upward conveying deduster in 1992. The first deduster to use a counterweight system (patented), and the first Wash in Place (WIP) deduster in 2000. The year 2008 saw the introduction of the first and only controller to use automatic resonance control, the company says. In 2009, Kraemer US was established to service and support the North American market. The first controller integrating all deduster and metal detector operations into a convenient, user friendly touch screen was launched in 2012. The most recent developments have been the new WIP machine which meets OEB5 requirements, and machines that are ATEX certified.

Kramer starts its 40th year with a brand new product launch of an upward conveying capsule polisher.
