COMPACT MACHINE HAS HERMETIC PACKAGING ALL WRAPPED UP

26-09-2018

Bosch Packaging Technology has developed a novel horizontal flow wrapping machine for hermetic packaging of medical products such as pens and inhalers in blow-fill-seal vial cards and blister packs.

The compact Sigpack HML is suitable for both small and large batch production, with the film reels changed manually during short machine stops or with the help of a splicer for high-volume production.

Products are delivered to the flow wrapping machine via a transport chain. The transverse and longitudinal film sealing uses proven Longdwell heat sealing technology. And the sealing rolls used for horizontal wrapping can be opened from both sides, which prevents the film from coming into contact with the heated sealing rolls.

Options for the Sigpack HML include a “no gap no seal” function, which is ideal for product piles in blister or BFS packages. If the pile is not in the correct position, the cross sealing stops.

Another option is for a modified-atmosphere packaging module that improves product stability by removing residual oxygen from the hermetic packages, with sensors provided to monitor and regulate the gas content.
