Great and small in one

•    Compact blister line comprising a blister and a cartoner module
•    For solid dose products in batches of 30,000 to 150,000 packs
•    Very fast format changeovers in less than 30 minutes

Great in terms of blister formats, blister stacks and cartons, small in terms of dimensions, energy consumption and costs: the two-lane Blister line BEC 400 processes large blisters up to 100 x 165 millimeter in size and large-volume cartons exceedingly efficiently. The compact machine is less than nine meters in length. On account of aspects such as low energy consumption and a low-waste punch, the Uhlmann Blister line BEC 400 is a particularly cost-effective option when packaging all-aluminum blisters.

Fast format changeovers in less than 30 minutes
Fast format changeovers are a key feature of the BEC family – and this also applies to the BEC 400. All the modules operate with just a few format parts that can be exchanged without needing any special tools. The whole line permits good visibility and is easy to clean. The SmartControl operating system guides the user through the cleaning and format changeover processes. This means that a changeover to a different format on the BEC 400 is possible in less than 30 minutes – even for operators without specialized knowledge. 

Uhlmann based its development of the BEC 400 on a combination of tried-and-tested engineering features and the upgrading of key functions. For example, the BEC 400 has a direct blister transfer from the punch to the cartoner module. Transferring the blisters to the cartoner module only involves two process steps, which helps reduce the overall length of the line. The primary and secondary packaging areas can be clearly separated.
