Maruho Hatsujyo Innovations (MHI). the U.S. subsidiary of Kyoto-based Maruho Hatsujyo Kogyo (“MHK”), Japan’s second largest pharmaceutical packaging machinery manufacturer, is introducing a new blister machine.
Known as The Eagle, it is an Americanized version of MHK’s PF-D1S, and represents a compact, servo-driven, high performance machine that serves as the company’s first foray into the North American marketplace.
Capable of handling all commonly used forming and lidding materials, the competitively priced Eagle can produce up to 200 blisters/min at a maximum index length of 90mm and maximum index width of 130mm.
The machine features fast, tool-free changeover in less than 10 min, offers multi-zone pre-heating, recipe-driven format change, and is compatible with third-party feeders.
Featuring both platen forming and rotary sealing, the new Eagle blister machine offers ease of operation, a user-friendly HMI, and an easy expansion of the feeder area when required.
The company stresses its responsiveness and commitment to product support, providing U.S.-based installation, maintenance, spare parts and 24/7 technical support.
