Packaging machines

Sideloading cartoning machines for the pharmaceutical industry

To ensure that blisters, ampoules, vials and similar reach patients safely and in compliance with GMP, packaging machines for secondary packaging must meet high requirements. The sideload cartoners from Körber are perfectly adapted to this. The flexible, modular machines allow effortless expansion of a blister, sachet or stick pack systems into a complete, high-performance production line. 

Your benefits of sideload cartoners

Process reliability

Digital counting units ensure precise setting during format changes

Time saving

Excellent accessibility enables fast changeovers as well as short non-productive times due to easy and fast cleaning

Flexibility

Teach-in process for different brochure lengths

Well-connected, even for small batch sizes

The flexible cartoning machines P1600 and P3200 are designed for small and medium batch sizes and enable packaging in folding cartons of almost all pharmaceutical products. The integration of additional functions at a later date is no problem thanks to the modular design based on the building block principle. The machines require minimal space and need only a few format parts.

Versatile cartoning options for solids and parenterals

Our P2 and P4 intermittent motion sideload cartoners are equally suited for packaging solids and parenterals. The difference lies in the pitch: the P2 and P4 models, with a pitch of 120 millimetres, are suitable for small and medium batches, while the P4 scores with almost twice the production speed of the P2. The latter, however, is characterised by high versatility and with a pitch of 180 millimeters provides ideal packaging solutions for folding boxes that are more than 90 millimeters wide.

Your benefits of P2/P4

Patented carton erecting unit

The patented carton separation unit ensures a stable packaging process. The carton magazine is designed so that individual cartons are separated positively for the utmost gentle removal by the suction wheel

High-precision

Unique three-point guidance with overhead conveyor to ensures friction free carton transport to avoid scratches. Especially good quality results for high cartons with glued closure to ensure 100% rectangular shape

Best accessibility

Extremely short and compact infeed station. Opens to the operator side for best access for cleaning and tool-less format changeover. Multiple blister stacks with up to 50 blisters per carton in standard.

The perfect partner for large blister packs and flexible applications

Up to 300 packages per minute: whether for big multipacks or individual packages, the P3 cartoner from Körber offers an unbeatable performance when combined with an upstream Blister Expert BE. Optimum visibility and accessibility from transfer to insertion and closure make format change.
