Our Clients

  • "In the past, we had problems with accuracy when counting small tablets, as well as problems related to powdered and uncoated tablets, the transition to DATA's ICU machine solved all the problems, we are very satisfied."
    Yongho Lee, Production team head, Korea United Pharm
  • "In the testing phase of the machine, we sent over 30 different types of the most challenging tablets and capsules: for example, the smallest soft gels, the dirtiest tablets, the most problematic tablets, most of which the previous multichannel machine could not count. The ICU machine can now count all types of tablets, soft gels, and capsules that we pack here while maintaining absolute accuracy."
    Yitzhak Bar Dror, Factory manager, Altman
  • "When I switched to the DATA's counting machine, there were many concerns because it was a new machine with new and unfamiliar technology, but to my delight, the new machine meets all expectations and gives us higher outputs than the previous machine with better accuracy and almost optimal reliability."
    Yitzhak Bar Dror, Factory manager, Altman
  • "One of the things that we liked about the machine when we first saw it, was that there’s not a lot of parts, so there’s not a lot of stuff to clean. Everything comes apart in seconds really, so if you needed to tear that machine down in under a minute, you could do it."
    Christopher Baurer, Director of Operations, Proficient Rx
  • "We have a Tecnomaco Monoblock with a DATA counting machine and we are very pleased. Now we can count tablets and even though a lot of dust is created from the tablets, we can say that the machine counts very accurately. The dust does not interfere, mainly because the camera is positioned separately from the feeding track and tablets."
    Pietro Carlucci, Director of Production, Kräuterhaus Sanct Bernhard KG
  • "The service is outstanding, I have a representative who speaks to me in German. I can call at any given moment and the machine can be accessed by remote connection. So far, when I had a problem, I called, and the problem was resolved within a few minutes, I am very pleased with the service."
    Pietro Carlucci, Director of Production, Kräuterhaus Sanct Bernhard KG
  • "It was very useful for me in the lab-scale to determine the pellet abrasion."
    Péter Somogyi pharm D. Formulation Researcher, Teva Pharmaceuticals Industry
  • "DATA’s ICU 2-80 requires the least setup of anything that sits on the line, so from an overall changeover perspective, the ICU2-80 is very quick. After the initial setup, there is no bottleneck. Once it starts, it counts."
    Christopher Baurer, Director of Operations, Proficient Rx
  • "The ICU machines are onetime setting machines. They are "operator friendly" as they can select the recipe of the product directly from the available recipe and start the production."
    Vikas, maintenance engineer, Hetero
  • "Now we can certify the real quantity with this machine, for kitting, receiving & verifying the real count of the material. Thank you for putting all of the efforts necessary, to help us with your discovery of this machine, it will bring great accomplishments to our process & efficiency."
    An International firm from the Electro Mechanical industry
  • "Teva has purchased the JR-PH counting machine for R&D purpose, we are using it for the last 4 years for counting beads (pellets) which are relatively small objects used in the pharmaceutical industry. It is highly recommended for counting small particles in the same weight & size, which are undergoing the coating process."
    Gabriel Welber, Russia Project Manager, GGR&D EMIA & APAC, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries
  • "Previously we would have to choose to run no more than two types of products in a single day, simply because of the time, it would take to manage that machine…. With DATA’s ICU machine we can run double or triple the number of batches of different types of products in a single day."
    Christopher Baurer, Director of Operations, Proficient Rx
