High-tech Innovations Packaging Machines for Vaccines
Despite the Covid-19 epidemic, Marchesini Group has never stopped. The company’s activities are part of the packaging supply chain included by the Italian Government as among the essential activities that have remained open.
The firm is currently producing and delivering packaging machines for vaccines, and in general continuing with customer order deliveries with the help of technologies such as ‘Fat’ in streaming.
'Fat' in Streaming: This process facilitates communication between the company’s technicians and the customer's on-site technician, who is able to see every detail of the machine from every angle using fixed and mobile cameras positioned along the machine/line, states the company.
Thanks to this technology, HMI can be managed remotely, allowing customers to analyse all of the machine's vital parameters directly from their monitor and request any necessary clarifications regarding features, settings and formats, adds the firm.
Each ‘Fat’ stream is recorded, and the recording can be provided with a final report on request.
In 2004, a well-known Chinese company commissioned a line that would carry out the whole process of filling and packaging vaccines in syringes.
In 2009, the same customer became the first Chinese big pharma company to receive authorisation to produce a vaccine against the H1N1 virus that caused swine flu and purchased the second complete Syringe Packaging Line from Marchesini.
Today, this valuable partnership continues and the company is in the process of delivering three additional vaccine packaging lines as well as other stand-alone machines to update existing lines.
