Flexibility at its best
Basic Functions Dividella NeoTOP x - faster to market
Flexibility & Speed - mid to larger size lots
Flexible machine platform, fast format changes, secure process through 100% post-loading verification, lower total cost of packaging and total cost of ownership (TCP and TCO)
Flat monomaterial blanks made of cardboard (inbound), compact exterior dimensions (outbound), product protection
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.
lThe modular approach is groundbreaking for our customers and for us as a manufacturer. r

Versatile & Future proof: Packaging for Medical Products.
Powerful & Intuitive: High speed blistering for parenteral products and medical devices
Agile & Robust: Perfect for small production jobs.
Fast & Reliable: Stable production of up to 800 blisters per minute.
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
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
Convenience is a major priority in the pharmaceutical industry, because the easier and more convenient it is to take medication, the better. Stick pack packaging of pre-portioned products is the ideal primary packaging for this purpose. The LA600SP stick pack machine from Körber uses a side-loading process to package free-flowing powders, granules, pellets, and liquids for you. Up to 1,000 stick packs can be filled per minute.
In connection with our P1600 cartoner, it creates a smart combination for a primary and secondary packaging solution. Moreover, stick packs consume up to 40% less material than sachets that have the same filling capacity. This reduces your material costs and at the same time improves the carbon footprint of each product.

Modular design allows adaptation to future needs as well as the addition of further functions (e.g. leak detection, weighing)
Suitable for liquids, free-flowing granules, powders, and pellets; large format range possible for stick packs and cartons
Safety is especially important when packaging highly potent drugs. The strategies and measures for protecting employees must go hand in hand with the design of the production facilities. At Körber, we are familiar with these challenges and can offer you intelligent packaging solutions based on decades of experience and individually tailored to your needs.
The spectrum is wide: it ranges from small batch sizes for personalized medicines, where high flexibility of the entire process chain is required, to highly sensitive, biological medicines, which require defined stable temperature and humidity conditions.
Occupational safety must also be ensured. For example, any contact between employees and highly potent materials must be prevented during the filling and packaging process. In some circumstances even a closed working environment (containment solution) is mandatory.
Körber's modular packaging solutions focus on digital solutions, automatic processes, flexible format changes, ease of operation and simple cleaning. As a result, they simplify the increasingly complex production process for pharmaceutical manufacturers, while at the same time master them safely and efficiently
lWe adapt flexibility to your requirements and will bepleased to present a solution which suits to you. r
Bernd Seliger, Technical Product Manager Körber Pharma Packaging Machines
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
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
