Bosch Packaging Technology, supplier of processing and packaging technology, expands its expertise in the non-aseptic packaging process for pharmaceuticals.
Following the introduction of the Sigpack TTMP topload cartoner for pharmaceutical products, the company now adds two further machines to its portfolio: the Sigpack VPF vertical flat pouch machine and the horizontal flow wrapping machine Sigpack HML.
The new vertical flat pouch machine Sigpack VPF was developed especially for the packaging of powders. Pain killers in powder form are among the products typically filled into sachets. Thanks to the innovative sealing technology from Bosch, the machine produces hermetically sealed packages, which safely protect the product. The VPF allows manufacturers to flexibly expand their sachet production by up to 12 lanes. The pouch size can also be quickly and easily adapted according to customer requirements. High dosing accuracy and excellent sealing properties allow the machine to produce and fill up to 1 500 sachets/min with precision and quality.
Bosch also extended its portfolio with a compact horizontal flow wrapping machine that can either be loaded independently or integrated seamlessly into a complete line. The Sigpack HMUL or HML is available either with ultrasonic or heat-sealing technology. The new flow wrapping machine achieves an output of between 200 and 350 products/min and is suited for the hermetic packaging of various pharmaceutical products such as vial cards or inhalers. The open machine design enables a quick line clearance, thus ensuring high process safety.
With the expanded machine portfolio, Bosch now offers packaging solutions for every production step from a single source—for example, for the treatment of diabetes. Insulin can be produced with bioreactors from Bosch, subsequently filled into cartridges and assembled to insulin pens on further Bosch equipment. CIP/SIP cleaning systems and sterilization equipment can also be integrated into the production process. With the new machine range, manufacturers can hermetically package the insulin pens into flow wraps.
End-of-line equipment such as the Sigpack TTMP cartoner round off Bosch’s line competence. The modular design of the machines enable manufacturers to individually equip their production lines and add further Bosch equipment. For instance, serialization solutions make each step traceable—from the single pack through to pallets. This way, customers receive a consistent, user-friendly concept for their entire packaging process.
