Siebler Unites Heat-Sealing Technology with Die-Cut Packaging Formats

Die-cut strip packaging made with Romaco’s Siebler heat-sealing technology will be displayed at Constantia Flexibles’ booth (Stand 42H51) at CPhI Worldwide 2017.

Romaco, supplier of processing and packaging equipment, will make its first joint appearance with packaging supplier Constantia Flexibles at CPhI Worldwide 2017. The two manufacturers have already been collaborating on research and development for many years.

Formats for both standard and individual-shaped strips can be produced using Romaco’s Siebler heat-sealing technology. A Romaco strip packaging machine in the HM 1 series will be on show at the booth of Constantia Flexibles, a company specializing in foil and film packaging. The Siebler HM 1 machines can be configured to manufacture die-cut strips at the customer’s request. Individual-shaped strips can be designed according to customer’s requirements. There are no limits to the possible geometries, from round or rectangular packs to heart or star shapes. With integral grooves as opening aids, the heat-sealing technology unites design with functionality. Strip perforation patterns can also be customized.

To enable individual-shaped strips to be manufactured, a heat-sealing machine belonging to the Romaco Siebler HM 1-350 series is equipped with a continuous cutting station. Two servo-driven punches cut strips out of the foil layer with a drawing cut to create air, light, and moisture-tight unit dose packaging with an individual design. Several specimen sealing pattern options are available. Any machine configured for die-cutting individual-shaped strips can also be used to make standard strip formats. The Romaco Siebler HM 1-350 is capable of delivering up to 900 individual-shaped strips per minute.

Choosing the right heat-sealing foil is crucial to produce strip packaging efficiently and reliably. The machinability of a foil in relation to the speed at which it is to be processed is the decisive factor. The sealing parameters must be analysed in detail so that the processes and features of the heat-sealing machine can be adapted accordingly. The aim is to achieve packaging that stays tight in any circumstances. All packaging must pass various stability tests before it is approved by the pharmaceutical regulatory authorities for a particular product.

Romaco Innojet will also be represented at this year’s CPhI Worldwide in Frankfurt with its Ventilus V 2.5 processing machine, which can be seen at the booth of French manufacturer Seppic S.A.
