Millmount Healthcare has recently installed a new blister packaging line geared for high-speed quick changeovers using a standard blister size.
This optimized line will allow significant run rate improvements through the elimination of size changeovers and higher overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). By selecting this standard blister size, our customers will now see a more cost effective solution; a high-speed packaging line with an expected capacity of over 200 blisters per minute.
Millmount Healthcare has purchased standard parts for this line and will run the blister packs through standard checkweighers with inkjet capability, and again through a standard vignette labeller. This labeller has the capability to label the carton either top or bottom and then the cartons will be placed into a Pester bundle wrapper.
Commenting on this new move for Millmount Healthcare, Pascal Keogh, MD, says “Our customers increasingly see a need for overall reduction in their cost of goods. By being more flexible in their choice of blister size, this solution offered by Millmount Healthcare will assist them reach their targets.”
