The VJ Instruments  table top Film Former coating machine is intended for development and small production of transdermal therapeutic delivery system laminates (TDS-patches) as well as to create edible films/ oral dissolvable film bulk were (EDF/ODF) without any further modification. It permits batch wise coating of 75 mm wide webs with successive lamination manually.
The machine contain a coating head (Manual Dragger), where the  coating knife is installed. This special tools guarantees an extreme high product quality with an ultimate accuracy of ±1% over the entire coating width and has therefore the lowest thickness variation available in 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.

Film Former is an integrated and semi-automatic unit consisted of dragger with digital screw gauges, stain- less steel body, heater, glass tabletop and digital tem- perature controller.

For making oral dissolving films or transdermal films, set the temperature of glass tabletop according to the solution/suspension with the help of control panel. Set the dragger screw gauges for required height considering evaporation, which reduces the thickness of film. Keep the dragger and dragger guide on glass tabletop. Pour the prepared bubble free solution/suspension of drug, film former and plasti- cizer and drag it with dragger on glass tabletop for oral film and For TDP First keep release liner on glass table top and cast the film on it and then apply backing membrane.

After drying the films it can be removed and cut as per the content and weight uniformity.
