Uhlmann Presents the Digital Future of Pharma Packaging

Uhlmann Pac-Systeme GmbH & Co. KG will take visitors to this year’s interpack on a journey into the digital future centered on pharmaceutical packaging. Aided by virtual reality applications, interactive 3D simulations, and app solutions, they will be able to see which solutions and services Uhlmann is offering to create added value in the future. “We are pointing the way at our exhibition stand”, says Rainer Schopp, Head of Marketing. “I do not want to reveal too much at the moment. Visitors to the trade fair should experience the benefits and fascination of these new options in person.”

Pharmaceutical packaging solutions on over 700 square meters
In addition to the digital trends, Uhlmann has an exhibition area of over 700 square meters to present a broad range of diverse packaging solutions: the Blister line BEC 700 with a maximum output of 700 blisters per minute, the Bottle line IBC 120 with format-free bottle transport, practical Track & Trace applications, as well as camera systems for product inspection. Information on intelligent services completes the Uhlmann presentation at the trade fair in Düsseldorf.

Highlight BLU 400: gentle packaging of liquids in blisters
The highlight among the exhibited machines is the BLU 400, a line for the packaging of liquid dose products in blisters. It allows the gentle handling of ampoules, syringes, vials, bottles, cartridges, or pens. The modular design permits suitable configuration for every application. Personnel input for operation and resetting is low, and material consumption is efficient. One example here is the arrangement of the products lengthwise or crosswise to the running direction of the web, which allows full use of the width of the forming material. The BLU 400 in Düsseldorf can be seen packaging syringes. It will operate in conjunction with a cartoner, end-of-line packaging machine, and a serialization solution. “By presenting machines, services, and digital applications, Uhlmann underlines at interpack its role as a supplier of integral solutions. Visitors should see that we are proficient in all aspects of pharmaceutical packaging. The fact that we offer everything from a single source confirms that we stand quite rightly for 360° PHARMA PACKAGING”, adds Schopp.
