IWK Introduces Modular, High-Speed Top-load Cartoning Line for Prefilled Syringes, Vials & Other Fragile Pharma Containers

IWK Packaging Systems, Inc., a manufacturer of premium cartoning and tube filling equipment for the pharmaceuticals and health & beauty sectors, has introduced a modular, high-speed top-load cartoning line to meet dramatically increased demands for packaging pre-filled syringes, vials and other delicate pharma containers.

The company’s IWK TL Series arrives amid continued efforts to produce billions of additional COVID-19 vaccine doses, and offers a slew of benefits not typically found in conventional top-load cartoning equipment.

Most importantly, the IWK TL Series reportedly assures safe, reliable product handling designed to virtually eliminate glass-to-glass contact. The machine builds upon IWK’s reputation for cGMP-guaranteed, floorspace-conscious equipment with quick tool-free changeover, exemplary cleanability and easy line clearance.

Among other notable highlights, the IWK TL Series incorporates an intelligent transport system that is not typically found in top-load units. Instead of requiring a fixed distance between carton holders, customers get an individually adaptable setup. This allows for a variable number of items per function, simplifying operation significantly. Secure carton holding is assured throughout via mechanical hold and, since the system does not use vacuum belts or conveyors, risk of breakage-caused contamination is mitigated.

Another key facet of the IWK TL Series is its unsurpassed modularity – a crucial element as many pharma manufactures continue experiencing evolving production needs. The series’ monoblock design allows for mixing and matching various stations per product-specific needs, including product feeding, carton erection and divider insertion units prior to transport to end-of-line closure, reject and discharge modules. Marking can be performed via inkjet or laser printing, and quality control features include code reading and presence verification for both products and inserts.

The IWK TL Series can form and fill carton from 90-180 millimeter in length, 50-150 millimeter in width and 15-80 millimeter in height, based on carton flats from 150-500 millimeter long and 150-400 millimeter wide. Depending on box size and insert parameters, the machine can produce up to 120 completed cartons per minute – considered top-speed in a sector that has experienced surging demand.
