will be focusing on a fully integrated line, which is designed to meet the high requirements of the medical and pharmaceutical industries in Hall 16 (Stand C57) this week at interpack. The solution comprises all the stages in the process—from the loading of the sensitive products through to the packaging process itself, and up to the end-of-line operation. The main features of the line are its high output, machine availability, and degree of flexibility.
In addition to the machine's comprehensive sensor system, intelligent RFID-coded dies contribute to a high level of efficiency, process reliability, and operating security. Due to their highly developed actuating system, X-tools enable the die to be changed quickly and reliably during product changes. The whole line can be controlled intuitively by the user-friendly HMI on the packaging machine.
Thanks to a comprehensive sensor system, a state-of-the-art machine control, and networking with the Multivac Cloud, the RX 4.0 thermoforming packaging machine offers a high level of output, flexibility, and machine availability, and ensures optimum pack quality and process reliability are achieved.
After the packaging process has been completed, an integrated handling module at the machine outfeed converges the packs, so they are perfectly aligned for downstream box packing by a case packer. A high-performance digital printer is integrated into the thermoforming packaging machine for printing the packs precisely and in compliance with legislation. After the upper web has been printed, visual inspection of the print image is performed by an integrated vision system.
On display will be a fully integrated line for the production of combi packs. The heart of the line is a RX 4.0 thermoforming packaging machine in GMP design, with which Multivac is supporting the digitalization of packaging processes and Industry 4.0/IoT solutions. The machine is completely enclosed with its own housing and is laid out to produce a combi pack with a syringe, filter, and vial; a SCARA robot, located in the loading area, places the various products into the pack cavities.
