Shawpak Launch Rigid Blister Machine

UK based medical packaging machinery company Shawpak announce the launch of its new Shawpak Rigid Blister Machine, take back control of your supply chain by producing your own trays on demand. The addition of the Shawpak Rigid Blister Machine allows us to offer a complete portfolio of packaging solutions to our customers in the medical and pharma arena.

Developed, designed and created by shawpak, this unique packaging machine is one of the latest developments within the shawpak portfolio.

The Shawpak Rigid Blister Machine is capable of creating diecut rigid blister packs of up to a maximum size of 600 x 280mm giving a web width of 620mm and an index length of 300mm. A single blister can be produced at the maximum size or any combination of blisters to make up the 600mm width. Narrower materials can be loaded onto the machine down to a minimum width of 250mm. It forms the blister, diecuts the outer profile, automatically stacks them ready for use in production and includes a separate waste disposal.

One of the main benefits of the machine is that it gives medical device customers full flexibility making packaging on demand from roll stock, rather than relying on supply chains. The tooling can be quickly changed to give full control and allows customers to make trays ahead of time, preventing the need to store surplus inventory of stock for months taking up space and tying up cash. By taking back control you will not only integrate your supply chain but also have the ability to control serialisation and inspection as packs are made, allowing better quality control.

Understanding customer struggles with supply chains and limitations in the current standard market solutions was key in the development of Shawpak's Rigid Blister machine.
