Pharma Machines Innovation and Flexibility at Achema
MG2 will be showcasing two machines – Blistar and Flexalab at the upcoming trade fair Achema in Germany. The firm will also be hosting the co-exhibitor Universal Pack at the event wherein it will exhibit its Alfa Flexi vertical packaging machine.
MG2 will showcase two machine representatives of its divisions Packaging and Processing: these are Blistar and Flexalab. Blistar is a blistering machine designed to optimize the primary packaging of capsules and tablets in blisters for both pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. It is characterized by both ergonomic design and electronic control that guarantee fast size change over by recalling a recipe and it can manage up to 150 blisters/minute with maximum dimensions of mm 90×140, states the company. It is a tile that expands the firm’s proposal, to allow its customers to create a complete packaging line, starting from the capsule fillers to the end-of-line machines.
Flexalab is a capsule filling machine specifically designed for R&D laboratories, small batches and special productions, suitable to dose several pharmaceutical oral forms, with production speed up to 3.000 capsules/hour. At Achema, the machine will be equipped with two dosing units specially designed for trending applications: the Microdose unit suitable for powder micro-dosages (including API without excipients) from 0.5 mg and the liquid filling unit which can manage cold liquids, hot-melt liquids and suspensions up to 70°C.
This is how the firm introduces itself in the German market which has also been the scene of a recent success: the supporting activity to industrialize a pharmaceutical product for inhalation purposes, carried out for an important CDMO, the Aenova Group.
The capsule filling machine, which is installed in the Münster plant, is a Planeta 200 equipped with a powder low-dosages unit (from 5 mg to 40 mg) and the Multinett system that controls 100 % in-process net weight of each filled capsule.
MG2 technology is not the only one present at the stand, which also hosts the partner Universal Pack, an Italian company based in Romagna which boasts over 50 years of experience in the production of vertical packaging machines for single-dose packaging.
The company will showcase the Alfa Flexi vertical packaging machine, able to produce a wide range of stick-packs.
This machine is designed for powders and liquids processing, at low and high dosage, to guarantee high standards of flexibility, mentions the firm. This solution is made possible thanks to the combination of different modular components, which allow the company to offer user-friendly technology to the market, ideal features for those customers with easy and fast format change needs. The vertical packaging machine combines minimum dimensions, ergonomic and flexibility to make the role of the operator as easy as possible, concludes the company.
