From individual products to the pallet
Schubert-Pharma at Achema 2018
At the Achema trade fair, Schubert-Pharma will be presenting a cross-section of its packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. For the first time, the expert audience will be able to see the latest generation of the Flowmodul flow-wrapping unit in action, packing BFS ampoules into flowpacks at the exhibition. Schubert-Pharma will also be presenting its extensive portfolio of engineering services. The exhibition will highlight the expertise in realising multiple processes and functions with the Schubert TLM technology platform or by seamless integration of external units.
At the Schubert-Pharma exhibition stand, a TLM packaging machine with integrated Flowmodul will be packaging BFS ampoules into flowpacks. A film with high barrier properties (e.g. for protection in climate zone 4) will be used. This protects pharmaceutical products from environmental factors. Various sealing processes can be used with the Schubert flow-wrapping unit. Thermal and ultrasonic sealing are both possible.
The Flowmodul offers manufacturers a compact, high-performance machine with a high degree of flexibility. The Flowmodul unit has a fully automatic carrier change with replaceable cassettes for other formats. The entire forming shoulder is changed when the format changes. This guarantees 100 percent safety when changing films and reliable reproducibility of the flowpack geometry.
The latest version of the Flowmodul machine is even more easily accessible for maintenance and cleaning thanks to its open machine layout. This means Schubert is in compliance with the high hygiene requirements for the pharmaceutical industry. The machine also features easy-to-clean conveyor belts.
Full process integration
At Achema, Schubert-Pharma will also provide information about the extensive possibilities TLM technology and the integration of external units can add to your processes and functions. All labelling, quality control and serialisation tasks can be carried out by the packaging machine depending on the application. Schubert offers solutions for the efficient packaging of the most varied of products, be they vials, ampoules, adhesive dressings, infusion bags, syringes or devices. The proven Schubert image recognition system carries out the optical control functions and quality control tasks. This includes mix-up checks, verifying the presence and completeness of products and shape control.
Integrated external systems such as labellers to apply tamper-evident seals or camera systems to verify serial data can easily be integrated into Schubert’s own Track-and-Trace system.
