Virto-Cuccolini and its concerted ergonomic design project

During 2022, Virto-Cuccolini had the opportunity to exercise a new layout on one of its own products. Following the specific need of an important customer in the pharmaceutical sector, a variation of the feeding cover was designed to improve the pouring dynamics of bagged powder ingredients. Consequently, a new upper part of the vibrating sieve model VPF 800 was built.

After a careful engineering feasibility assessment, the following main modifications were made, aiming at optimizing the machine’s functionality within operators’ daily activities. The design, specially taking into account the opening of also cubic bags, is equipped with a semi-circular hood connected to a concave surface for supporting bags; with a working height suitable for facilitating emptying of bags directly delivered by an horizontal source. The project is completed with handles to ease assembly and disassembly of the hood, together with quick release clamping rings to speed up the task.

In this way Virto-Cuccolini has supported not only the customer’s needs in terms of machine’s performance and functionality, but also its ergonomics, keeping the quality of the vibrating sieve unchanged and also supplying increased workplace well-being and safety of the operators.

The customer, declaring themselves satisfied, then purchased two units; and another customer from the food sector requested the same innovative fitting on a VPB 800.

For Virto-Cuccolini it was an interesting concerted ergonomic design experience, which allowed the team to learn new points of view on their sieving equipment and their use.

    VTP sieve for pneumatic conveying was born last year at Virto-Cuccolini during the pandemic, as a sign of the resilience of the business despite the unprecedented global scenario, navigating in uncertainty.

    During these 14 months, the VTP series received a good response from the market, with sets of VTP sieves being bought by plant manufacturers to complete their pneumatic conveying systems.

    Following our Customers’ request, we add a new item to the VTP family: the pharmaceutical version, called VTPF.

    VTPF is also enlarging the VPF pharmaceutical sieves’ family, offering a new safety sieving function together with safe handling of pharma ingredients.

      In Virto-Cuccolini we know very well that the pharmaceutical sector needs specific machinery to guarantee easy cleaning, no product stagnation, no contamination and compliance with regulations.

      For this reason, for some years now our C-Line range has included the VPF circular range of powders sieves, specifically designed for this sector.

      Main application here is the ingredients control screening, typically at the exit of the grinding process, to check powder particle size before next production steps (eg mixing, granulation, etc.); or at their first entry into the production line as safety screening.

      VPF range vibrating sieves are made of Aisi 316 stainless steel, with internal mirror polishing and a special design to avoid contamination and product stagnation. The supply is completed by the cleaning systems, selected according to the product and the specific application needs.

      Many pharmaceutical companies around the world have already chosen us as their trusted suppliers.

      Our VPF vibrating screen, available in size 500 and 800, installed on a stainless steel trolley, is indicated for small productions, at the entry of tablet presses, capping machines, packaging machines.


      Our VPF2 vibrating screen, also available in the same two sizes, is designed to be installed under a silo, a bag opening station, or other in-line feeding system.



      CUCCOLINI is always unique and original.
