Maruho Hatsujyo Innovations (MHI), the U.S. subsidiary of Maruho Co. Ltd., will showcase its EAGLE-Uni semi-automatic blister machine Oct. 14-17 at Healthcare Packaging EXPO, Booth #W-984.

For small-scale production, packaging development and material testing, the versatile unit performs forming, sealing and punching operations in consecutive steps at one universal station.

Measuring just over 1.2 meters L and less than a meter tall, the compact EAGLE-Uni offers a format area of 150x150mm, with forming depths up to 30mm. The machine handles a range of forming materials – including PVC, PVDC, ACLAR, PP, PET and ALU – and lidding substrates including ALU, paper, PVC, PET, and laminates. EAGLE-Uni can run up to five cycles/min, and is suitable for packaging solids, powders, liquids or devices.

The EAGLE-Uni accomplishes an impressive set of functions in a small footprint and works well for R&D and niche products, as it allows manufacturers and packagers to fine-tune their materials and blister configurations and, from there, commence small production runs.
