TekniPlex Healthcare at ACHEMA: the company presents automatic filler-sealer for single dose plastic vials

Published: 17-May-2024

The company will exhibit a range of blister packaging solutions, as well as its latest filling and sealing machine model at ACHEMA 2024

TekniPlex Healthcare, a company that utilises advanced materials science expertise to help deliver better patient outcomes, will provide live demonstrations of its latest filling and sealing machine for plastic containers at ACHEMA, June 10-14 in Frankfurt, Germany.

At Hall 4.1, Booth F58, the company will highlight the Pentafill A25 Filling & Sealing Machine, which offers several improvements over previous models, including improved sterility and a smaller footprint.

TekniPlex Healthcare’s introduction of the updated Pentafill A25 filling and sealing machine brings several advantages over its predecessor:

  • The machine doesn't require preheating with hot air, preventing the compromise of the filled product
  • No central machine support, allowing for unobstructed laminar flow
  • Suitable for a wide range of viscosities 
  • Produces up to 25 five-vial strips per minute

Also at ACHEMA, TekniPlex Healthcare will showcase its range of sustainable blister packaging solutions, all suitable for running on standard blister packaging machines. 

Most recently, the company introduced a pharma-grade blister film with 30% post-consumer recycled content on a mass balance basis. The solution incorporates partner company Alpek Polyester’s Octal rDPET Sheet technology and, when combined with TekniPlex’s
Teknilid® Push polyester lidding, yields a blister package recyclable wherever the polyester stream exists.

TekniPlex Healthcare will also exhibit the world’s first fully transparent recyclable mid-barrier blister package. Recyclable in geographies where the #5 (polypropylene) recycling stream is available, the mid-barrier blisters feature a polyolefin blister film paired with a barrier PP lidding film.

As well as this, the company will showcase a recyclable polyester mono-material blister + lidding combination, suitable for products that do not require barrier protection.

“With more drug products requiring substantially minimised contamination risks, the industry is moving toward enhanced solutions like the Pentafill A25, which despite a small footprint elevates sterility while maintaining high output levels,” said Bryan Wesselmann VP of Sales & Marketing for TekniPlex Healthcare. “Meanwhile, our selection of more sustainable blister packages speaks to growing consumer desires across several sustainability categories, including recyclability and PCR content integration. Notably, these consumer preferences are unlikely to change despite recent regulatory exemptions for the pharma industry.”
