Packaging Solutions for Sensitive Products
At this year’s Compamed MULTIVAC will be exhibiting packaging solutions for sensitive products. The highlight will be the RX 4.0 thermoforming packaging machine in GMP design. In conjunction with an integrated handling module and an InteliJet HD digital printer from BELL-MARK, it forms an efficient solution for producing and printing combi packs containing a syringe, filter and vial.
The RX 4.0 is completely enclosed in a housing. In addition to the machine’s comprehensive sensor system, the new generation of intelligent dies also contributes to the high level of efficiency, process reliability, and operating security. Thanks to its highly developed actuating system, the RFID-coded X-tools enable the die to be changed quickly and reliably during product changes.
The packaging solution in Düsseldorf will be used to produce a combi pack. The RX 4.0 is equipped with an InteliJet HD digital printer from BELL-MARK for coding the packs. An integrated H 242 handling module in the outfeed area removes the packs from the machine.
With its mobile and compact T 260 traysealer, MULTIVAC is showing a model that is designed for running a wide spectrum of trays, and which reportedly offers companies packing small to medium-sized batches a high degree of process reliability, reproducibility, and flexibility. The sealing die ensures that a controlled sealing pressure and precise temperature distribution are achieved. Critical parameters are monitored permanently by sensors.
MULTIVAC will also be showing the C 300 TC chamber machine for packing sterile medical products in pre-made pouches. It reportedly enables packs to be produced either as vacuum packs or with modified atmosphere and reduced residual oxygen content. A temperature-controlled and permanently heated sealing bar ensures that this cleanroom-compatible machine achieves reproducible sealing quality, and the whole process can be calibrated and validated.
MULTIVAC is also showing a carrier system with integrated H 242 handling module for loading syringes into combi packs. A high-performance vision system will be used on the carrier system. This ensures that, even at high throughput, all the packs are inspected for completeness, and it also checks whether the individual products are loaded correctly into the pack cavities.
Among the other exhibits is the L 320 conveyor belt labeller, a compact solution for the wrap-around labelling of glass or plastic bottles. Since the labeller is constructed of standard modular elements, it can be designed for the requirements of the particular sector.
