Flexible blister machine for tailored packaging solutions

The GMP-compliant packaging of solids is becoming increasingly complex and specialized in the rapidly changing pharmaceutical sector. The Blister line BEC 200 stands you in good stead here. The compact, integrated system, comprising a blister and a cartoner module, efficiently packages small production volumes in customary Uhlmann quality. Equipped with platen sealing, the BEC 200 is also suitable for customized packaging solutions. Childproof, all-aluminum blisters are one example.

Ideal entry into the premium packaging of solid dose products

Top quality, available at an attractive price for entry into this segment, and flexibility make the BEC 200 an interesting option for contract packers, the manufacturers of generics, or dietary supplement producers in particular. It packages up to 200 blisters and 150 cartons per minute. Short setup processes and fast format changeovers make the machine particularly suitable for small batches. Depending on requirements, an optional output upgrade to 300 blisters per minute is possible. 

Highlights:

  • Flexible: Modular design for small batches of 2,000 to 50,000 packs and/or special blister formats
  • Efficient: Format changeover in 30 minutes as no tools are needed to exchange the few, lightweight format parts; smooth surfaces for fast line clearance
  • Straightforward: Easy operation and guided format changeovers with the user-friendly SmartControl operating system
  • Future-oriented: Upgrade for added output – up to 300 blisters per minute
  • Tailored: Integral solution to suit your requirements; blister pockets up to 40 mm long, cartons up to 100 mm in height

The Blister line BEC 200 in detail

As a member of our BEC family, the Blister line BEC 200 packages solids in up to 200 blisters and 150 cartons per minute in customary Uhlmann top quality and in conformity with GMP standards.


Flexible packaging at a first-rate price

Great flexibility and an attractive entry price make the BEC 200 a practicable blister line for contract packers, as well as the manufacturers of generics and dietary supplements. The strength of the BEC 200 lies in its modular design. The producers of special blister formats or those handling medicines in small batches, e.g., orphan drugs, particularly benefit from the BEC 200. Efficient product changeovers are another aspect. Uncomplicated setup processes and format changeovers are carried out quickly.


BEC 200 grows with your challenges

This blister line can up its output when demand increases. The feeding technology can be adapted and adjusted individually. Should added production be necessary, an optional BEC 200 upgrade increases the output to up to 300 blisters per minute.


User-friendly and efficient application

Similar to all the other BEC lines, the Blister line BEC 200 is convincingly easy to operate. A changeover of the few format parts is completed in less than 30 minutes. The entire line offers a clear view, while smooth surfaces and the effortlessly removed sealing tools promote easy cleaning without long downtimes.


Future-oriented and user-friendly operating system

A straightforward user interface is a convincing feature when it comes to operating the BEC 200. A standard fitting of the blister line is the SmartControl operating system. This is of modular design and can be extended as required. Clear icons and step-by-step explanations enable your personnel to operate the line independently after a short familiarization period.
