Tailor-made packaging solutions from a single source
At this year's interpack MULTIVAC will be exhibiting packaging solutions for sensitive products
January 29, 2020
At this year’s interpack MULTIVAC will be exhibiting packaging solutions for sensitive products. The highlight will be the RX 4.0 thermoforming packaging machine in GMP design, which will be presented to the visitors for the first time. In conjunction with an integrated handling module and an InteliJet HD printer from BELL-MARK, it forms an efficient solution for producing and printing combi packs containing a syringe, filter and vial.
RX 4.0 in GMP design for producing combi packs
The packaging solution is completely enclosed in a housing. In addition to the machine’s comprehensive sensor system, the new generation of intelligent dies also contributes to the high level of efficiency, process reliability, and operating security. Thanks to their highly developed actuating system, the RFID-coded X-tools enable the die to be changed quickly and reliably during product changes. The packaging solution in Düsseldorf will be used to produce a combi pack. The RX 4.0 is equipped with an InteliJet HD printer from BELL-MARK for coding the packs. An integrated H 242 handling module in the outfeed area removes the packs from the machine.
Carousel system for the separating and controlled loading of syringes
MULTIVAC is also showing a carousel system with integrated H 242 handling module for loading syringes into combi packs. A high-performance vision system will be used on the carrier system. This ensures that, even at high throughput, all the packs are inspected for completeness, and it also checks whether the individual products are loaded correctly into the pack cavities.
Wrap-around labelling of cylindrical containers
Among the other exhibits is a compact solution for the wrap-around labelling of glass or plastic bottles. The L 320 conveyor belt labeller, combined with a MRT 100 rotating infeed table and an outfeed table, will be on show in Düsseldorf. The L 320 was specially developed for rapid and precise labelling of round or oval bottles, pots, or glass jars. Since the labeller is constructed of standard modular elements, it can be perfectly designed for the requirements of the particular sector. The model is also very versatile when it comes to label positioning. Labels can be positioned on all sides, as well as over the pack edges or as wrap-around labels. The application of sealing labels is also possible. Thanks to a minimum of format parts, which can be changed very quickly, the L 320 can be converted to different products within a short period of time. The rapid change of label rolls, together with the use of low-maintenance components, also contribute to the labeller’s high level of availability.
