ACG Worldwide presents new technology for manufacturing, packaging and R&D solutions for the global pharmaceutical industry. For ACHEMA 2012 the company issues new solutions for the blistering and packaging of pharmaceuticals.
The company boast to be among the very few suppliers of complete technology for manufacturing, packaging and R&D solutions for the global pharmaceutical industry. This year, ACG introduces the B 45 blister packaging machine for thermoforming films, cold forming packaging materials and multiple lidding foils.
The B 45 operates at 45 cycles per minute for PVC-ALU blisters and 35-cycles/per minute for ALU-ALU blisters with large format area. It incorporates a fully cGMP balcony type design, which was designed for easy access for operation and cleaning, the manufacturer says. It is designed to meet the Pharmaceutical Industry’s GMP and regulated market audit needs. According to ACG, the B 45 ensures fast changeovers and has an integrated camera system for online blister inspection.
For the packaging of the finished blisters into cartons or leaflets, ACG issues the K 120i - Cartoning Machine. The company believes this unit to be well suited for multiple blister packaging and can handle tuck-in as well as glue-in cartons, leaflet folding and insertion with multiple choices for online inspection, while being only three meters long. The machine has a balcony design with a servo driven pusher, prepusher and indexing and can operate at a maximum output of 120 cartons/min.
