Four packaging specialists under one roof

Körber Medipak offers flexibility, automation and cost-effectiveness

Hamburg-based Körber Medipak Group is presenting technological highlights for integrated packaging solutions at interpack 2011 in Hall 16, stands A25-26, which it says set new standards for flexibility, automation and cost-effectiveness.

The Körber Medipak Group now unites Rondo, Dividella, MediSeal and Seidenader under one roof.

Highlights from MediSeal will include the White-Line packaging and logistics concept, which instead of a country specific packaging materials and pack inserts is based on ‘white’ (blank or unprinted) materials, where lidding films, boxes and inserts are not printed with the country specific information until they are in the packaging line and inspection and camera systems provide a 100% check, guaranteeing pharmaceutical safety. The switch to a different language is controlled automatically by a line management system and completed in 10–12 minutes.

MediSeal will also show the Puma300 blister line, while Dividella will exhibit the NeoTOP804 Topload cartoner, which now has a Triple Mode configuration, enabling up to 500 syringes a minute to be packaged.

Rondo will present the latest developments in packaging security, including the new patented Pharma DDS (Discrete Dose Slider) child-resistant pack, which has been jointly developed with Stora Enso, and is suitable for clinical trials packaging.

In addition, Seidenader will be exhibiting comprehensive inspection and Track & Trace solutions in Hall 16, stand B47, including the new RIM robot-assisted inspection machine.

‘We place great emphasis on highly flexible construction and absolute security when we design our machines,’ says Gerhard Breu, ceo of Körber Medipak. ‘With our modular designs we can meet the current and future needs of our customers in terms of short changeover times and falling lot sizes. At the same time our modularity principle allows us to reduce systems’ life cycle costs, as additional modules can be integrated into the overall line at any time.’
