Blister lines for oral solids: pioneering and versatile

At well over 60 percent, tablets and capsules are the most common dosage form for medications – and will remain so in the future. With blister machines from Körber, you can increase the efficiency of your solid dose production. On our Blister Expert platform, we use a smartphone-like user interface that provides many customer-specific functions. When optimizing your processes, we keep an eye on the overall performance of your equipment throughout its entire life cycle. This allows us to achieve real breakthroughs in productivity through the individual integration of our modular machine concept.

lThis out-of-the-box concept offers our customers more flexibility, better upgradeability and reliability while reducing project planning effort and thus lead times.r

Your benefits

Best process stability

An additional draw off unit at the forming station results in the elimination of shrink effects. This provides 100% shrinkage control for maximum process stability. Even when restarting after a longer machine stop, the BE starts with a constant index

Highly versatile – product packing

Most versatile machine for deep draw applications such as parenteral products or medical devices. With an extremely wide format range, we are flexible for any application. Whether it’s an individual feeding system or a standard transfer: Gentle handling of sensitive products is always first priority

Open clamping packs or sealed packs

The generalist for large cavities and special customer requirements. Solutions for open clamping packs is also the basic specialty of this flexible blister machine. On request, our tooling specialists will work out the blister design together with you

Maximum modularity and future-proof on the smallest foot print

Ideal for small batch sizes, many format changes or a wide variety of packaging materials – the BE4 reliably meets all requirements.
It enables a highly efficient process thanks to the two-lane operation with a very small footprint. Thanks to the 100% modular concept of the Blister Expert platform, the BE4 can be upgraded to a high-speed solution at any time.

Your benefits

High efficient at a reasonable price

The BE4 could operate as 1 or 2 lane version. Therefore a maximum output of up to 400 blisters per minute is possible. Due to the 2-lane operation mode the web speed decreases and allows for simple dosing principles

Fast change over

Our BE platform works with fewer format parts in an ultra light design. On top of that, be excited about more automatic adjustments, magnetic clamping systems and guided change over services

Consistent sealing quality thanks to patented technology

Full surface contact between the roller sealer and its actively temperature controlled center core. Constant sealing time, independent of the machine speed with platen sealing. No new validation necessary when changing the machine speed

Reliable high-speed solution for your future-proof blister production

The BE high-speed solution performs a stable production of up to 800 blisters per minute – day and night. Reliability and robustness have served as guiding principles for our machine design. Thanks to 100% modularity, it also allows entire functions to be easily added or replaced at a later date. This means you are always equipped for changing requirements and applications.

Your benefits

High uptime / productivity

An integrated automatic storage box for the bottom foil enables material change on the fly without changes in the overall machine length. Together with the big diameter of the lid foil supply, outstanding OEE is achieveable

Consistent sealing quality thanks to patented technology

Full surface contact between the roller sealer and its actively temperature- controlled center core. Constant sealing time, independent of the machine speed with platen sealing. No new validation necessary when changing the machine

Minimum waste maximum blister quality

Adaptive adjustment of station positions – inline and fully automatic – to compensate for film shrinkage during machine operation and after stops. No faulty blister ejections after machine start due to quality-relevant blister defects.

For clinical trials and small batch sizes

Efficiency and flexibility count more than ever, especially as batch sizes continue to shrink. Thanks to the process-reliable and modular technology of the CP200 blister machine from Körber - and in combination with our P1600 cartoner - you can respond to new requirements of the pharmaceutical market at any time. Take advantage of the unique changeover option between plate and roller sealing and convert formats in record time.
