EZ BLISTER Auto Feed

EZ Blister Auto Feed is a lab-scale blister packaging machine, with material autofeed, that is designed to create high quality blister packaging with minimum operator input. It is ideal for facilities requiring low-volume packaging solutions.

FUNCTION

EZ Blister Auto Feed allows small scale operations flexibility and efficiency in low volume blister packaging production. The auto feed add-on incorporates a work station with reel holder as well as a roller-based reel tensioning system that holds the material in place and feeds pre- determined amounts through the machine for forming or sealing.  This increases the rate of production to between 300 - 540 cycles per hour for any single operation.


FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Customizable to individual commercial and manufacturing requirements
  • Forming & Sealing Materials Fed from Reel holder using reel tensioning system to increase efficiency and reduce operator input
  • Rollers hold material in place and feed predetermined length through system for forming or sealing
  • Reel tensioning roller technology holds foil taut to ensure highest achievable level of foil tension when sealing
  • Easy setup via HMI and minimal training required
  • Tool-less changeover of format parts in less than 2 minutes
  • Cold forming capability
  • Perforated cutting tools (optional)
  • All machine parts either grade 304 stainless steel, anodized aluminium or PTFE
  • PTFE coated forming plates & knurled or heat sealing plates
  • Operating speed of 300 - 540 cycles per hour* for any single operation
  • Potential for retrofitting auto feed funtion to existing EZ Blister models that have HMI Touchscreen (Model dependent)

Benefits

More control for R&D labs

  • Bring your blister packing in-house instead of booking time on production lines or outsourcing to a third party – minimises delays, allowing your new drug product to get to market sooner

  • Every day saved in the R&D lab is a day of extra profits in the marketplace

Flexible pack design

  • Blister pack using a variety of materials, novel shapes, sizes or perforations - allows the full range of possibilities to be explored for pack development in the R&D lab

  • Offers increased flexibility to contract packers

High quality blisters

  • Reproducible, production quality packaging

  • Fast & easy set-up – no specialist knowledge is required to operate EZ Blister so there is no need for an engineer to be present

Compact, portable design

  • Table top design for convenient blister packaging

Reduce R&D time

  • Sepha can design your new blister packs. This is especially useful for customers who conduct clinical trials. We can advise them how to rationalise the number of different tools needed, even if the lab needs to package many different products

  • Fast turnaround to tool-up for new products – 2-3 weeks for thermoform and cold-form tooling, faster than outsourcing small batches to a contract packer

More economical for batches up to 20,000 units

  • Fully cGMP, so it is quick to clean – requires 5 minutes

  • Fast 2 minute changeover - reduces down-time between production batches

Application

EZ Blister Auto Feed is ideal for producing small batches of high quality blister packs in:

Pharmaceutical Research and Development laboratories

  • Clinical trials

  • Stability studies

  • Package development

  • Marketing samples

Pharmaceutical production and packaging departments

Low volumes which may not normally be economic on high speed fully automatic lines can be turned around quickly on EZ Blister , e.g. packing small batches of specialist drugs.
