Dividella NeoTOP x

Modular and expandable, the Dividella NeoTOP x can be adapted to the specific requirements of pharmaceutical product manufacturing. It is ideal for the production of small to medium batch sizes.

Dividella NeoTOP 804

The Dividella NeoTOP 804 can easily handle up to 270 packs per minute (in triple mode). Like all the machines in the NeoTOP family, it can be expanded or retrofitted with additional modules and infeed systems. This makes it ideal for the processing of a wide range of products while maintaining top performance.

Dividella NeoSmart

With the Dividella NeoSmart solution, Körber's Pharma Business Area offers a modular and expandable packaging system that is not locked into one implementation. We enable flexible and efficient production, especially for low-volume applications. And thanks to the FlexUnits, a fast, online format change is possible - without line clearance.

Dividella NeoTOP Tool

For the packaging of very small quantities and clinical studies, you are on the safe side with the carton erector (Dividella NeoTOP Tool T1) and carton sealer (Dividella NeoTOP Tool T9). Both unitsare GMP-compliant and ensure easy and safe handling. The reliable cold gluing of the Dividella NeoTOP Tool from Körber can be converted to hot gluing as production volume increases. With the same mono-material packaging style, this enables seamless up-scaling to semi- or fully-automatic topload cartoners.

lI appreciate the willingness and speed of the Körber staff to respond to all our questions and concerns. They are honest and competent at what they do. r

P2_180

The exceptionally large format range makes the P2 cartoner maximum flexible for applications in medical devices, liquid dose or complex products but also large cartons for solid blister packs. 150 (big) cartons per minute, the intermittent P2 is the leader in its class and the 180mm pitch makes this possible.

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.

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.

Packaging at top speed

Up to 500 cartons per minute can be packed on the P5 high-speed cartoner. It delivers maximum performance even with large formats. Thanks to its modular design, the integration of further functionalities at a later date makes the machine a worthwhile and future-proof investment.

BE3

BE3

Powerful & Intuitive

Typical application for the BE3 and BE5 class are various blisters for parenteral products and medical devices in orientation for high speed application. Safety and quality of the product are therefore paramount. Gentle product infeed and several operating principles within the machine also have a positive effect on the quality of the formed blisters, even when it comes to demanding films.

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.

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.

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

Stick pack packaging: fast, flexible, and pharma-compliant

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.

Packaging highly effective medicines: simply and securely

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
