Marchesini Group and the best of Made-in-Italy packaging technologies on show at Pharmintech 2016

03-09, 2016

The countdown has begun for the fifth edition of Pharmintech, the Italian venue focusing on the entire pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and personal care supply chains. Pharmintech will take place in Bologna from April 13th to 15th 2016, as a part of Pharma Week, alongside Cosmofarma: thus the entire supply chain for the world of pharmaceuticals will meet for several appointments and to take a close look at how the serialization regulations have evolved and to talk to the experts of Sea Vision, who will host a Marchesini Track & Trace line at their stand. 

At Pharmintech (Hall 19 - Stand D59/E59), the Group will exhibit two lines; one for packaging blisters and the other for syringes, which will be backed by five stand-alone machines.

Integra 220 is the progenitor of the integrated robotic lines made by the Marchesini Group. It is the model from which the subsequent versions 320 and 520 V have been created. The winning idea from which Marchesini started to create this line, and which was also taken into account for later versions, is that of integrating the two thermoforming and carton packaging operations into just one unit. The resulting machine has a compact structure (measuring a mere 9 meters) and fully accessible work stations. 
Each of these stations (forming, sealing, perforation, coding and shearing) is managed completely by servo motors, which guarantee high production speeds (150 pieces per minute) and low noise levels. The thermoforming section is connected to the cartoning station by a Robocombi. This robot has suction units that pick-up each blister and place it directly into the buckets of the cartoner without any other in-between steps. 

At Pharmintech, Integra 220 will be completed with the FA 04 produced by Multipack. The balcony design of this overwrapper enables operators to monitor the entire production flow perfectly and efficiently. Maintenance is minimal and the machine is extremely user-friendly.

FBZ 320 is a horizontal continuous-motion cartoner with a Robomaster infeed system made entirely by the Marchesini Group to allow the machine to work at very high speeds. The Robomaster robot feeds the syringes to the thermoformer and can perform up to 80 very delicate pick-up cycles per minute. Its pitch is over 500 mm and the quality of the finish is excellent. Size change-overs are performed without having to use any special tools. The high speed shearing stations boost the production rate and performance and also cut down on waste. All of these superb features make the FBZ 320 an efficient, safe and user-friendly machine.
