MEDICAL and PHARMACEUTICAL Packaging Solutions EN

Medical and Pharmaceutical

Specialists in Medical and Pharmaceutical Medical and Pharmaceutical industries, require reliable, reproducible and traceable packaging solutions to offer maximum protection for sterilised Healthcare devices and products. ULMA offers packaging solutions fulfilling all of the standards required by those industries. Using plastic films, Tyvek® , medical- grade paper, aluminized materials, to protect products against microorganisms and moisture. Our packaging solutions can provide packages designed to be sterilized by any of the following means: - Steam-heat treatments. - Use of gases (e.g., ethylene oxide). The package is gas permeable through the pores on the lidding material (thermoformed) or a band that partially covers the packaging (flow pack / thermoformed). - Gamma or E-Beam radiation. Sterilised packages

Easy-open packages We can design packages to be ease-opened on any usage circumstance. Taking into consideration, conditions where the package will be opened and product be used, e.g. flaps, zig- zag, etc.

Assistance with standards

ULMA offers guidance in GMP, GAMP5 and ISO directive validation processes, assisting and supporting to obtain the (IQ) Installation Qualification and (OQ) Operational Qualification. Comprehensive Package ULMA has a wide packaging solutions portfolio, suitable for the Medical and Pharmaceutical industries, with seven different packaging technologies: Flow Pack (HFFS), Thermoforming (Form, Fill and Seal), Vertical (VFFS), Traysealing, Blister, Shrink and Sleeve Wrapping.

Easily covered from product handling, boxing and palletizing after the packaging process.

Safe and functional packages

Design adapted to the product’s specifications and its functional requirements Package features: customised shapes, sterilisable materials, easy-open aids, lot number, date of expiration and traceability data printing possibilities, guarantee package functionality and product protection.

Customised shapes packages

Certain products require custom shapes or packages with multiple cavities to form medical kits.

Our packaging machines incorporate great flexibility and rapid setup features to quickly change formats.

Materials

The possibility of using different materials on the same machine or even on the same package offers our solutions a wide range of possibilities.

Easy-open

Being easy to open is an essential feature for packages that need to be handled with gloves.

Without reducing the required airtightness, there are different options to enable the package to be opened easily and quickly: unsealed flaps, grip holes, pre-cut, thumb holes, zig-zag, Chevron seals ...

Traceability

Traceability is essential across the entire logistics chain. Our equipment enables the incorporation of labelling and coding systems based on different technologies: thermal printing, inkjet printing, pad printing etc. The variable information (name, batch, serial number, bar codes, expiry date, etc.) can be cleanly printed on the label or directly onto the packaging material.

Disposable plastic devices

Single-use plastic devices ULMA is capable to design package solutions for disposable and one-time use medical devices; preserving sterilised conditions until package is opened. Depending on the characteristics of the product, it is possible to make flexible or rigid packages.

Single-use medical textile products Sterilisable products, can be packaged on optimised hybrid lidding material, reducing high-cost materials consume through a patented mixing lidding system, where a Tyvek® strip is used instead of the whole package lidding surface. Affordable wrapping for grouped products are also available.

Packaging Technologies

VERTICAL (VFFS) - VT

SLEEVE WRAPPING - SW

FLOW PACK (HFFS) - FP

Packaging is accomplished through a roll of film, forming a tube that is sealed along all the package length and two more transverse sealing areas on the head and foot of the package. Plastic films, Medical-grade paper, Tyvek®, Aluminised films can be used. Designed for manufacturers who need affordable packaging with highly flexible formats and high production levels. Trays are formed by means of heat and pressure (thermoforming), allowing manual or automated product filling on their cavities, sealing of the tray with a lidding material is the next process stage to finally enter into longitudinal and traverse cutting to obtain individual packages. Fixed and variable data is usually printed after sealing and before cutting stages. Material commonly used are: plastic films for both, bottom and lidding; permeable materials for the lid as Medical-grade paper, Tyvek®; aluminium and metallic materials. THERMOFORMING - TF

The pack is formed by vertical flow pack wrapping machines. A tube of film is formed around a product and sealed with one longitudinal and two transversal seals.

Sleeve wrapping machines designed for packaging with shrink film when the product does not need to be completely sealed. Two rolls of film are used, welded crosswise to obtain a shrink wrap around the product.

This is fully hygienic technology with high production requirements.

Provides

wrapping

for

distribution and transportation.

Designed for gravity-fed or vertical feed products.

Designed for groups of jars, boxes and cases.

TRAYSEALING - TS

SHRINK WRAP - SHW

Automatic and manual machines that work with shrink film and provide a high-quality wrapping that is free of folds, flaps, etc. after passing through a shrink oven which adapts the film to the shape and dimensions of the product. It enhances the appearance of the wrapped product and protects it from tampering.

Sealing of preformed rigid trays in automatic machines called traysealer machines.

Designed for medium-batch manufacturing.

BLISTER - BL

Specially designed for groups of boxes and cases.

Sealing of cavities formed in the automatic machines called blister packaging machines or blister thermoforming machines. A roll of film is used to form the lower cavity into which the product is placed before sealing it with another film which also acts as a cover.

This technology is mainly used on mass medical devices production.

TF - Flexible Packages produced with a flexible film base. TF - Rigid Packages produced with a rigid film base.

Provides tamper-proof packaging with optimum mechanical protection.

Especially designed for products with high added value, for over-the-counter sale.

Enables customisation of the packaging.
