The ERWEKA MULTICHECK V is a completely newly designed tool for full automatic measurement of sample weight, thickness, diameter and hardness.

The advanced design of the unit beginning even from the outside, shows the innovative functions of the unit such as switchable hardness-testing-principle (“Constant-Speed” and “Constant-Force”), fully-automatic speed adjustment of tablet singulation and transport, independent of sample size and surface, advanced high-accuracy thickness measuring system and state-of-the-art alignment tool for unusually shaped oblongs and coated tablets.


Cleaning of the unit is more simple than ever! Pressing a button the optional 12-station magazine will drive to the side and the acrylic glass cover of the unit will automatically open. For loading of the magazine with samples the magazine will drive in front to allow easy sample load.

The unit is handled by a hand-held operation unit with Windows CE based user menu, 3.5” TFT colour monitor, alpha-numeric touch-screen entry, 32 MB-RAM and Intel Xscale Processor with 300 MHz. This unit allows CFR 21/11 password protected multi-level user entry, Audit Trail acc. to CFR 21/11, product data store with tolerances for up to 100 products, limited storage of results as well as download of Audit Trail and test results to a non-connected computer (by a standard software-kit) by cable or even optional “Ethernet” or “Wireless LAN” technology. Stored product data can also be saved on a “Back-Up-Card”.



The samples are individualised automatically by a self-adjusting 3-step vibration system and then deposited onto the weight measurement boat. From there the samples are transported to the test stations by a linear feeder which allows you to align oblongs as well as odd shaped samples such as sugar coatings. In case of problematic samples a new innovative down holder in the hardness test station is available as an option. A patented step in the transport way allows you to switch tablets which tend to lay on the side.
