Shawpak 4SS Pouch Machine packs medical products up to 5mm in thickness, at rates up to 4000 per hour; can also produce 3-side seals for manual packaging lines.
UK-based medical packaging equipment specialist Shawpak has introduced a 4-Side Seal (4SS) Pouch Machine. Designed for the packaging of flat medical products, the new Shawpak 4SS can be particularly useful to manufacture pre-made pouches for manual packaging lines.
Developed, designed and produced by Shawpak, the 4-side pouch machine represents the latest in the company’s broad portfolio of pouching and thermoforming equipment solutions. Key to its conception was an in-depth understanding of brand owner requirements, as well as the limitations in the market’s current standard machinery solutions. The Shawpak 4SS is designed to:
- Pack flat products to a maximum thickness of 5mm in packs up to 600mm x 340mm
- Produce up to 4000 packs per hour
- Make 3-side sealed pouches with the remaining side open, allowing medical device customers to produce pre-made packs that are manually filled and sealed
- Incorporate the latest technologies and innovative functionalities
- Ensure high efficiency and minimal maintenance
Notably, the Shawpak 4SS delivers multi-faceted benefits despite a compact construction that minimizes the machine’s footprint, sparing valuable floor space. For ease of operation, its ergonomic design utilizes modular assemblies for improved accessibility and quick changeovers using minimal, low-cost tooling.
“The Shawpak 4SS machine allows us to offer a complete portfolio of packaging solutions to our customers in the medical and pharma arena,” said Tony Crofts, Sales Director for Shawpak.
“This is another Shawpak packaging solution that will transform the industry norm away from ‘how things have always been done’,” said Robert Hartwig, President of BTS International and North American Sales Representative for Shawpak.
