Pharma Innovations Packaging Solutions for Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Industry
At the Achema trade fair, Schubert-Pharma will be presenting a cross-section of its packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. For the first time, the expert audience will be able to see the latest generation of the Flowmodul flow-wrapping unit in action, packing BFS ampoules into flowpacks at the exhibition.
At the company’s exhibition stand, a TLM packaging machine with integrated Flowmodul will be packaging BFS ampoules into flowpacks. A film with high barrier properties (e.g. for protection in climate zone 4) will be used. This protects pharmaceutical products from environmental factors. Various sealing processes can be used with the flow-wrapping unit. Thermal and ultrasonic sealing are both possible, claims the firm.
The Flowmodul offers manufacturers a compact, high-performance machine with a high degree of flexibility. The Flowmodul unit has a fully automatic carrier change with replaceable cassettes for other formats. The entire forming shoulder is changed when the format changes. The company adds that this guarantees 100 % safety when changing films and reliable reproducibility of the flowpack geometry.
The latest version of the Flowmodul machine is even more easily accessible for maintenance and cleaning thanks to its open machine layout. This means Schubert is in compliance with the high hygiene requirements for the pharmaceutical industry. The machine also features easy-to-clean conveyor belts.
Full Process Integration
At Achema, the company will also provide information about the extensive possibilities TLM technology and the integration of external units can add to one’s processes and functions. According to the company, all labelling, quality control and serialisation tasks can be carried out by the packaging machine depending on the application. It also offers efficient packaging for the most varied of products, be it vials, ampoules, adhesive dressings, infusion bags, syringes or devices. The proven image recognition system carries out the optical control functions and quality control tasks. This includes mix-up checks, verifying the presence and completeness of products and shape control.
Integrated external systems such as labellers to apply tamper-evident seals or camera systems to verify serial data can easily be integrated into the firm’s own Track-and-Trace system.
