Cutting-Edge Tabletop Transdermal Patch Machine: Revolutionizing TDP and ODF Production

The VJ Instruments table-top Film Former coating machine is designed for use in the development and small-scale production of transdermal therapeutic delivery system laminates (TDS-patches) and the creation of edible films/oral dissolvable film bulk (EDF/ODF) without requiring any additional modifications. It facilitates batch-wise coating of 75 mm wide webs with successive manual lamination steps. Within the machine, you will find a coating head equipped with a Manual Dragger, where the coating knife is securely installed. This specialized tool ensures exceptionally high product quality, achieving an ultimate accuracy level of ±1% throughout the entire coating width. This level of precision sets it apart as the machine with the industry’s lowest thickness variation available on the market.

To make oral dissolvable film and transdermal patches conventionally glass petriplates , Teflon coated petriplates and Teflon petriplates are commonly used. The major disadvantage of petriplate is time consuming process that takes hours and reproducibility of the same thickness is less.


VJ instrument rectified this error by developing self- drying tabletop semiautomatic machine with uniform film making dragger machine. This machine can be used for long single film with uniform thickness.


The film former machine has the elegant exterior fabricated of Stainless Steel box with toughened glass table- top. We can maintain the temperature of the glass tabletop from ambient to 100 C with the help of digital thermostat. The unique dragger is provided with digital screw gauges to make uniform thick films.

The Film Former is a versatile semi-automatic unit equipped with essential components, including a dragger with digital screw gauges, a stainless steel body, a heater, a glass tabletop, and a digital temperature controller. It serves as a key tool for producing oral dissolving films and transdermal films with precision.

In the first step, set the temperature of the glass tabletop according to the specific solution or suspension being used. This can be easily adjusted via the control panel.

Next, fine-tune the dragger screw gauges to achieve the desired height, considering the impact of evaporation on the film’s thickness.

Position the dragger and dragger guide on the glass tabletop in preparation for the film-making process.

Prepare a bubble-free solution or suspension containing the necessary components, including the drug, film former, and plasticizer.

For oral film production, use the dragger to apply the solution evenly onto the glass tabletop.

If producing transdermal patches (TDP), start by placing a release liner on the glass tabletop. Then, cast the film onto it and apply the backing membrane.

Once the films are dry, carefully remove them from the glass tabletop. They can then be cut according to the required content and weight specifications, ensuring uniformity.

This step-by-step process, facilitated by the Film Former, simplifies film production, making it efficient and precise for oral dissolving films and transdermal patches.
