Interpack: New non-destructive inspection, blister recovery and packaging technologies

Press Out Universal Mini enables product to be recovered from all blister pack types

Three new products aimed at meeting the changing demands of global pharma companies are being introduced by the pharmaceutical packaging equipment specialist Sepha. They will be formally launched at interpack in Dusseldorf on 8-14 May 2014.

BottleScan has already attracted orders from Asian and North American customers

The first machine, BottleScan, is the world’s first tool-less, non-destructive leak detection instrument for testing multiple induction-sealed bottles simultaneously. It incorporates force decay technology to test induction-sealed bottles for holes and weak seals without destroying the contents. Ahead of its European debut, BottleScan has already attracted orders from Asian and North American customers.

Press Out Universal Mini is a low volume, rapid product changeover deblistering unit that enables product to be recovered from all blister pack types, particularly child resistant, peelable and senior-friendly packs. The unit has been developed to reflect changes in the pharmaceutical market, where manufacturers are focusing on shorter runs of more bespoke, high value drugs in child-resistant or senior-friendly blister packs.

Finally, EZ MedPak extends Sepha’s EZ range of low volume, package development units into the wider medical packaging market. It is aimed specifically at medical device and packaging development teams who want to take control of their own pack designs and develop bespoke packs for small devices and pre-filled syringes.

'Sepha is focusing on innovation by investing in new technologies and developing our product offering in line with market demand,' said Sepha's Head of Sales and Marketing, Paul Kelly. 'Our new equipment extends our range into new markets and will meet the changing demands of our global pharma clients. We look forward to showcasing these additions and to a successful Interpack.'

The three new machines will be demonstrated alongside existing technologies such as the VisionScan and PakScan in Hall 16 on Stand F23.
