EZ Blister Autofeed is a low-volume, lab-scale blister packaging machine with material autofeed.

The Sepha EZ Blister AutoFeed is a small blister pack machine with material auto feed, that is designed to create high quality blister packaging with minimum operator input.

EZ Blister AutoFeed

The Sepha EZ Blister AutoFeed is ideal for facilities requiring low volume packaging solutions. The machine allows small scale operations flexibility and efficiency in low volume blister packaging. Its reel tensioning technology feeds material directly from the reel, increasing speed of forming and sealing operations.

The small blister pack machine offers a 3-in-1 manufacturing process including forming, sealing and perforating/cutting.

  1. Forming
    Forming material is fed from the reel to create trays that are formed to exact product requirements.
  2. Sealing
    The formed trays are sealed using knurled or heat sealing plates with lidding material fed from the reel holder. Product traceability can be achieved by choosing the option of code embossing the lidding material.
  3. Perforating & Cutting
    The sealed trays are cut and perforated using a precision die cutter.

  • Application

    The Sepha EZ Blister AutoFeed 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 the Sepha EZ Blister AutoFeed, e.g. packing small batches of specialist drugs.

  • 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 AutoFeed 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

    More economical for batches up to 20,000 units

    • Fully cGMP compliant, so it is quick to clean – requires 5 minutes
    • Fast 2-minute changeover – reduces down-time between production batches
