Validation Services:   Need an independent, third party validation certificate? Ask the tablet counting experts! We have in-house developed equipment to validate tablet detection sensors and tablet counting controllers. You send us your equipment together with the specifications and if it passes our validation test, We issue a validation certificate. Contact us for a quotation.

Swiftpackman latest news:  < 12 October 2018> Our latest upgrade was for an 8 channel DT Swiftpack tablet counting machine. We installed a new XMT4 controller; new HMI screen and new counting head electronics. As an add-on, a new pneumatic valve manifold and new cylinders have also been installed. Although the machine was built in 1996, with the new electronics (built around the latest Mitsubishi iQ-F series PLC), our latest counting protocol and Dust-No-Problem tablet detection electronics, this machine is now in a better condition than when purchased 22 years ago.

Previously:  < 21 February 2018> The drop-in replacement for the old Swiftpack MT3 terminal is now available. This new controller uses a state-of-the-art Mitsubishi PLC together with a colour touch screen terminal.

Also available:  < 4 June 2017> We now supply Synchronized counting heads for the Swiftpack machines (25PSR & 35PSR). Synchronizing the counting heads has the advantage that should light be detected in a channel that came from a neighbouring channel, this light will not result into "ghost" counts. Ghost counts are faulty count pulses that lead to undercounted bottles. The original SPARC Systems boards (and to a lesser extend the un-synchronized XIAC boards) suffer from this problem. Synchronized heads are the best option for your Swiftpack machine.

YES, we also repair Swiftpack MT3 terminals!   These terminals are used in a wide variety of counting machines, including the SPC type Swiftpack Tablet Counters from 4 to 16 channels, single and duplex machines. Duplex machines usually run with 16 channels split over 2 chutes (8 channels per chute) to fill 2 bottles at a time.

Also Available  < June 2016> We upgrade and supply Memory flap units for the Cremer CF1220 tablet counters. The new XIAC design comes with internal electronics to validate each and every cylinder stroke and an iPhone app for configuration. The upgraded CF1220 memory flap units use approximately 45% less compressed air!!.

Also available  < February 2016> For over 6 years, XIAC provides upgrades for the King TB4 tablet counters. Our latest design is a compact controller with colour touch screen terminal. Comes standard with product particle filter; parameters for softgel capsules and user restrictions that can be enabled or disabled.

Also Available:  < December 2012> This kit is for tablet counter manufacturers that desire the best sensors for their tablet counting machinery. The kit consists of a 6 channel detector, 6 channel emitter and 6 channel amplifier unit. Of course it incorporates our popular "Dust-No-Problem!" detection algorithm.

Contact us now to enquire about the "Dust-No-Problem!" upgrade kit.. This easy to install kit comes with 100% money back guarantee and 1 year warranty.

XIAC is well known for solutions in industrial automation. We do electronic repairs, electronic design, develop software, improve/expand current solutions. Our main customers use pharmaceutical tablet and capsule counting machinery.

  • Industrial Electronic Design : We are experts in designing sensors to detect all sorts of products. This includes, but is not limited, to tablets and capsules. We also design PLC protocols to accurately count your products. PLC software includes Mitsubishi, TwinCAT and Allen Bradley. Our protocols can also be converted to common languages like C, C++, Pascal or assembler. We're currently working on a "Counter-In-A-Box" unit. This unit is for machine manufacturers that want to design a new tablet counter but do not want to worry about the electronic aspects. XIAC Australia designs sensors, emitters, sensor amplifier modules, vibrator control boards and can link everything together with a PLC and TouchScreen terminal.

  • Industrial service & maintenance: We service many manufacturing and packaging equipment around the Sydney area. For example:

  1. King TB-5, TB-4, King Dispensa; We also supply tailor made electronics to accurately count clear gel capsules with these counters.
  2. King TC-8 Tablet counter (service, repair & upgrades)
  3. King TC-12 Tablet counter (service, repair & upgrades)
  4. Swiftpack machines that have "SPARC SYSTEMS LTD" PSR25 (with and without automatic gain control) (ELSEN25PSR) sensors in the sensor head. PCS 2547/1 & PCS 2548 ISS 0. We supply new “Dust-No-Problem!” sensors world-wide. New sensors have 46dB electronic dust compensation and are exclusively available through XIAC Australia.
  5. Most Cremer machinery including CF-830, CF-1230, CF-1220 (service, repair & upgrades)
  6. Tronics BLD-06 stepper motor controller/driver (labelling machine, service, repair & upgrades)
  7. Lepel induction sealer PSU
  • Calibration service: We calibrate King, Swiftpack, Cremer and several label pre-counting equipment.

  • Total Electronic Makeovers (Retrofitting): Pharmaceutical Tablet counters like King TB4, TC8 or Cremer CF830 usually still look like new even after more than 20 years. The problem is usually not mechanically but electronically. The old electronic parts are no longer supplied or have lead times over 8 weeks. To save production down-time, we can deliver a package to completely strip all electronics in these machines and replace it with state-of-the-art modern technology electronics. This is much cheaper than buying new machinery and more reliable than purchasing second hand machinery. Machines that had a total electronic makeover will last for another 15 to 20 years!
