Pharmaceutical Products in 4 Side Sealed SachetsJun 17, 2021 | Daniel Olle
When a leading pharmaceutical laboratory located in Central America approached FLTécnics a ProMach product brand-, looking for a customised solution to pack 3 different products (tablets, pharmaceutical powder and liquid gel) in 4 side sealed sachets, we were sure to comply all these requirements by offering our versatile Horizontal Form, Fill & Seal machine model FL 1.4 M3C FLT2, duplex, which can allocate three different filling systems: Tablet filler, Auger filler and liquid filler.
Pharmaceutical industry demands high quality standards when packing their products. This laboratory requested a HFFS machine to ensure a perfect package finish and production reliability besides high operation versatility to pack different product types at medium production speeds of 150 sachets per minute
Among other features, three filling stations and reduced changeover time, made the customer trust in FLTècnics solution.
