BPC23

The BPC23 is an automatic line for manufacturing of blister packages either sealed against flat film or cardboard. It is ideal as an entry level in automatic form, fill and sealing lines being the right choice for anyone dealing with short and medium runs of blister packages of any kind.

Operation

All machines in the BPC series integrate all operations needed to manufacture a blister package, from forming the blister, loading of the product and sealing to trimming operations.

Plastic film is fed from a roll into a set of indexing chains that pierce the film and move it through a contact heater for heating to forming temperature. The heated sheet then indexes into a forming station where parts are formed by vacuum. The loading area allows the manual feeding of the products and the paper insert (if needed). Once products are already placed inside the formed blisters, the sheet moves into a sealing station where the complete working area is sealed against a plain film or a cardboard. Finally, the sheet moves into a die-press, mounted immediately after the sealing press, where individual blisters are punched out.

All relevant operational parameters are controlled via a touch-screen and saved inside the built-in PLC.
