Ascend Packaging Systems’s Tomcat 1210 is a fully automatic bottle filling machine specifically designed for counting and filling bottles with tablets, capsules, and softgels. The Tomcat 1210 has been manufactured with the best capabilities of the Tomcat 1200, making it accurate and efficient. The Tomcat 1210 bottle filling machine is available with various conveyor options that move correctly filled bottles off the line and place empty bottles under the filling station, counting and filling the next bottle quickly. This machine is also equipped with a rejection sensor that detects faults during bottle filling. If there’s a filling error, the bottle is rejected from the line to ensure the finished product is filled with an accurate count of quality tablets, capsules, or softgels. This versatile automatic bottle filling machine can also count translucent softgels and dusty tablets efficiently. Other counters on the market have trouble counting unique products, but with the Tomcat 1210, you get an accurate count every time.

The conveyor cleaning process is a necessity, but it’s a time-consuming task. Most conveyor systems require thorough disassembly for cleaning to ensure stray product is removed between changeovers. But with our patented conveyor system, the SureClean conveyor, there’s no space for product or waste to accumulate. That way, you can maintain the cleanliness of your supply chain and put time back into your process.
The Tomcat 1210 automatic bottle filling machine is compatible with our patented SureClean conveyor system as an add-on option. The SureClean conveyor easily integrates with many types of equipment and machinery, including the Tomcat 1210. Thanks to the machine’s versatile design, the Tomcat 1210 is capable of integrating with virtually any conveyor system brand you prefer.
Ascend incorporated many innovative features into our SureClean conveyor system, including:
Sloped surface under the belt to stop any product from accumulating
Internal wireway so cables running to the machines along the conveyor can be run through the conveyor and not outside or along the floor
