The Marchesini Group will take part in the 55th edition of the China International Pharmaceutical Machinery Exposition (CIPM) that is scheduled to be held from April 20–22, 2018. The company will be showcasing its ultra-technological blister line that includes the Integra 520 V and the new fast bundler FA 04.
The firm claims that this line can deliver 520 blisters and 500 cartons per minute and is the perfect solution to pack blisters into cartons and to bundle them at high speed.
Integra 520 V—the fastest of the robotized integrated blister lines produced by the company—combines two machines: a thermoformer and a cartoner. Integra 520 V features not only the innovative functions of Integra 320, but also new pushers, a drum-type carton opener to deal with high speeds and a new leaflet pick-and-place system. According to the company, the result is an ideal machine for single-blister cartons, easy to clean and to changeover size thanks to the fact that the product feeding area is separate from the electrical and mechanical area.
The blisters coming from Integra 520 V are inserted into the cartons by the MA 500, an ingenious product insertion unit, which represents the highest mechanical innovation of the firm. MA 500 is designed to handle all kinds of carton closure: tuck-in or glued flap and various other combinations, opines the company.
Downstream from the line is the new FA 04 fast version, which has been developed from the FA 04 classical version. The company states that this new machine can handle a production flow of 500 cartons per minute, arranged in 50 bundles of 10 cartons. The machine on show has a balcony structure so that all the parts involved in the product flow are clearly visible, also to minimise maintenance work and to ensure simplicity of use.
