Sealer enhances productivity

The Super Seal Touch induction cap sealer from Enercon Industries (Menomonee Falls, WI) provides as much as 20% more induction-sealing power than the company’s previous devices. This increase in power is designed to boost productivity.

The unit’s redesigned cap-inspection system is integrated electrically and mechanically with the sealer to reduce setup time. In addition, the system includes recipe-management capabilities. Operators can store parameters for various products by name and perform product changeover easily. Users also can block other operators from adjusting the system.

The sealer’s touchscreen improves operator control and allows the unit to provide data about the sealing system. The touchscreen displays faults in descriptive text instead of codes and also supports several languages. The sealer also provides network connectivity, thus allowing packagers to control and monitor cap sealing data remotely from a central location.

Hologram seal makes counterfeiting difficult

Schreiner MediPharm’s (Oberschleißheim, Germany) Transparent-Hologram-Seal is intended to provide reliable evidence of tampering and counterfeiting and ensure that patients receive pharmaceutical products intact. The seal is fixed to the package with a strong adhesive so that an attempt to peel it off would damage the packaging surface. In addition, the seal’s 2D single-image design and holographic effects are designed to make counterfeiting especially difficult and thus ensure the safety of packaged pharmaceuticals.

The seal is transparent so that variable data on the package such as batch information is legible and intact. The Transparent-Hologram-Seal is appropriate for small- and large-volume production. Schreiner MediPharma and its sister company Schreiner ProSecure codeveloped the seal. Schreiner ProSecure specializes in authentication, tamper-protection, and track-and-trace solutions.
