The RS960HP Blister Packer
was designed and built for packaging of high-potency drugs
providing unique fully contained and integrated systems for the safe and flexible development and production of highly active compounds up to class 4. The blister machine can handle different products without the risk of cross contamination.
The first station of the RS960HP Blister Packer is the cold or thermoforming station. Here the base foil is formed into cavities that will hold the drugs. After forming, the foil passes into the isolator where products are loaded.
The integrated isolator allows the operators to work without wearing protective clothes. This integration also eliminates potential interface difficulties between the blister machine and the isolator. The design is optimised to ensure perfect airflow both inside and outside of the isolator.
Inside the isolator a so-called Cold-Sealing-Process creates and seals an envelope around the blister, using ultrasonic welding. An integrated cleaning system ensures that the uncut blisters that leave the isolator are fully cleaned.
Outside the isolator the blister is heat sealed and subsequently perforated and punched.
The ergonomic design of the high potency blister machine allows rapid cleaning to take place.
The stations are separately adjusted automatically by servo drives to avoid the chance of damage to the product which is critical in an environment where high potency drugs are handled.
The design of the blister machine enables fast and easy format changes. The integrated sensors verify that all tools are in their correct place.
The modular design of the RS960HP Blister Packer allows us to meet a wide range of customer requirements. All stations are built as separate modules enabling flexible configuration of the machine.
