Marchesini Group at "Pharmintech 2013"
From the 17th to the 19th April this year, Marchesini Group will be the key player at the fourth edition of “Pharmintech 2013” (Hall 19 - Stand D55), the major pharmaceutical packaging venue in Bologna. On show will be complete lines and stand-alone machines for packaging solid and liquid products with complete and leading edge solutions for drug serialization.
Proof of Marchesini’s expertise in devising complete solutions for drug traceability in the name of versatility will be given by a line made up of a rotary labelling machine, model RE202, produced by Neri with “Track and Trace” system for bottles, connected to a top-loading case packer & palletizer model MCPV850. The label and datamatrix code control stations, on both containers and cartons, make this line one of its kind in terms of reliability and is fully compliant with current traceability standards enforced in the pharmaceutical industry. An offer that does not merely propose labelling systems that can be rigged-out with a track and trace system, but that highlights complete lines for drug serialization, from start to end.
For the liquids market, Marchesini will exhibit Opto 150; this is a versatile and reliable machine with alternated motion for filling bottles. Featuring a dispensing range from 0.5 to 100 ml. this linear machine is able to process different types of products, such as drop counters, screw-on capsules, press-on caps and diptubes and is designed specifically for ophthalmic products.
For the solids market, spotlights will focus on the “FAST” blister line, the fastest machine ever to be produced by Marchesini. It will be exhibited in combination with the cartoner MA305 and the labeller BL300VTT. The line is capable of packaging over 720 blisters a minute and is the result of Marchesini’s experience in the field of blister packaging machines; it features some impressive technological solutions: the loaders are able to feed tricky products, safeguarding them at the same time even at high production speeds; a revolutionary connection unit between the blister machine and cartoner that can be replaced straightforwardly thanks to a simple trolley in less than 30 minutes; the carton loader ensures remarkable carton loading self-sufficiency.
For the end-of-line market, the top machine will be the Bestpocket case packer (a joint project of Marchesini – Prb) with winning features: compact footprint, construction simplicity, ease-of-access to the product and to all the mechanical components, straightforward size change-over, hygiene simplicity, excellent view of the production process and an innovative carton pick-up and erection system, which makes case packing operations fast, simple and effective.
Another joint project of Prb – Marchesini is the Ministratus palletizer. Easily integrated with other machines, Ministratus is compact, straightforward and ergonomic. The machine offers a perfect view of the production process and size change-over operations are simple and time-saving.
