Anup Maitra

Kolkata-based Neomachine Mfg Co was started in 1973 with an objective of manufacturing all types of pharmaceutical machinery.

For a decade, the company catered to the requirements of the Indian domestic players by manufacturing pharma machinery like bottle filling and washing machine, tray driers, mechanical sifter, vial filling machine, coating pan, fluid bed drier, pressure vessel, planetary mixer etc.

While catering to this market segment, Neomachine chanced to come across a Kolkata-based pharma producer, who were facing problems in film coating of tablets. Until then, the tablets were being coated in conventional pans, which were not only causing health hazards to the coating personnel, but was also a time consuming process. Inspired by this opportunity, Neomachine started the process of developing an automatic coating machine in the right earnest. After, two years of research and development, the first ‘Neocota Automatic Coating System’ was manufactured in 1984.

During the last three decades, Neomachine manufactured and marketed over 500 machines, out of which 50 machines were exported to the US, Australia, China, Jordan, Yemen, UAE, Uganda, Kenya, Sudan, Cyprus, Saudi Arabia, Austria, Brazil, Bangladesh, etc.

Neomachine, a professionally managed organisation now has two manufacturing units in Kolkata, which are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment like fabrication, machining, assembling and finishing.

The company has been strictly following all the quality control guidelines during manufacturing. The bought-out items are inspected at the manufacturers’ works periodically. The company has a dedicated team of engineers for providing erection and commissioning and prompt after-sales service to the clients.

The in-house R&D facility is abreast of the latest technology upgradation and the latest developments in ‘Coating Technology’. This helps in continuous improvement of the product.

Neomachine also provides IQ/OQ/PQ Qualifications for automatic coating system and are in the process of getting CE Certification. Over the years, the company has gained vast experiences in manufacturing ‘Automatic Coating System’ by interacting with various Indian and multinational pharma and confectionery units based in India.

Products like Cadbury India’s fast-moving product ‘Gems’ and Parke Davis’ ‘Chicklets’ are coated in the systems manufactured by Neomachine. The company also imparts aqueous and non-aqueous film coating and sugar coating technology to clients, who need the expertise.

Neomachine also supplies Hepa Filter for filtration of incoming drying air and Mobile Bed Wet Scrubber for purification of exhaust air, for these companies that need these items.
