Talking about assistance today more than ever, it has become for CO.RA. the main objective to assist their customers in different areas of pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
Thanks to the versatility of the product range and the skills of the team of researchers, production designers and engineers with an experience of 30 years in the field, CO.RA. concretely realizes solutions for customer needs. More and more CO.RA. offers a 360° service guarantee: it is ready to intervene, remotely or on site, with specialist technicians that assist the customer to choose the right solution, with tests in their technology center, and during installation and start-up with a team of qualified service personnel.

For keeping up with the developments in the sectors and the still improving importance of accuracy and care in handling products in pharmaceutical processes all members are constantly improving the products and services of the company to facilitate processes for the operator.
The MINI DUK is a new lifting device, designed and manufactured by CO.RA. for lifting and handling loads such as drums, pneumatic conveyors, agitators, with a maximum weight of 70 kg. The machine is made with the necessary precautions to be used in pharmaceutical and food environments.
The improvement, in this case is related to the Touch Screen Control Panel introduced by CO.RA. on board the MINI DUK, to help the operator control the actions of the Pneumatic Conveyor installed on the gripping system: the operator can monitor the operation directly from the position of the MINI DUK, for example, if the drums are full or empty, he can control directly the conveying process and the product discharge into the machine from the touch panel, he can also action the vibrator systems if he notices from the screen that the product has packed.
The simple and compact design allows an easy cleaning and inspection and also shortens and simplifies maintenance processes.
When the basic products are filled into a machine and a selected process has taken place, unloading of the intermediate or end product is the next important step. For this the CO.RA. ROTARY VALVE comes into play.
The ROTARY VALVE is designed for applications where a continuous flow of powders and granules pass through and continue to the next process, the half body design assists with the removal of component parts for cleaning and maintenance purposes, reducing the time necessary for service cleaning. The operator can also control the ROTARY VALVE from the touch screen installed on the MINI DUK and can check the machine feeding until the end of the process.
All CO.RA. components and systems are completely made of certified stainless steel, designed according to the European referenced standard for lifting loads, according to the lifting regulations and according to the FDA regulations, ideal for use in sterile environments and in compliance with CGMP recommendations (Current Good Manufacturing Practice). Complete traceability of components is secured thanks to laser engraving directly on the steel surface.
As per all CO.RA. Products, components have related certification and documentation that can be delivered upon request: Surface roughness certificate, functional specification, operation & maintenance manual, layout, EC certificate of conformity, FAT & SAT records, IQ & OQ records and declaration of suitability for ATEX environments.
