Page 21 of 43 • Pharmaceutical & Medical Packaging News September/October 2015 22 Blister Packaging Uhlmann to Feature Rebuilt Blister Machine at Pharma Expo Pharma companies are opting to extend the life of older machines while improving their performance. By Matthew Sanderson Associate Editor U hlmann Packaging Systems LP announced it is intensifying its custom machine outfitting services at its rebuild packag- ing systems center in New Jer- sey. The heightened focus comes during an increase in market demand for high- quality used machinery, which is seen by the pharmaceutical industry as a cost- efective means of addressing increased and/or changing customer demands and ever-evolving regulatory mandates, according to the company. At Pharma Expo the company will be displaying a rebuilt B1240 Blister Machine at Booth N-515. The machine can produce approximately 250 blisters per minute, and it is applicable to flex- ible, GMP-compliant packaging of solid and liquid dose products. It includes a servo-regulated main drive, web index, and transfer for high- precision operation. It also has self- adjusting drives, stores all format-related data for quick changeover times, and has small, lightweight tools. "Today's production processes require continuous adaptation," said Sabri Demirel, sales manager of Uhlmann Packaging Systems. "New medications are constantly being developed and new regulations introduced, making Uhl- mann's Rebuild Packaging Systems a very attractive option for anyone who needs a functioning machine in a short time of period, or who opts to extend the life of an older machine while improving its performance." Uhlmann performs rebuilding ser- vices on its complete lines of blistering machines, cartoners, and end-of-line equipment. The company's specialized knowledge is derived from experience in modernizing used machines, having completed more than 50 such projects since 2003. Uhlmann's additional port- folio of packaging machinery includes bottling machines, line monitoring, con- trol systems, and downstream packaging equipment. Ralf Klotz, regional sales manager, tells PMP News that Uhlmann's Rebuild Packaging Systems Center uses genu- ine Uhlmann parts installed by its own technicians.
