We’ve wrapped up another great Pack Expo show – talk about a big success! The ProMach Pharma Business Line booth was full of our latest equipment, dozens of helpful team members and more visitors than we can count.
Debuting for the first time, the new LP-100R label printer from WLS collected a crowd. This on-demand solution eliminates the need to inventory distinct labels for each product without sacrificing speed or quality. Capable of producing high-impact visual graphics in full color or black-and-white, as well as the highest graded codes, it’s perfect for manufacturers and contract packers who need extreme flexibility and top-of-the-line quality.
Another one of the hottest technologies on display at Pack Expo was the Dara HSL-PP/4 aseptic filling and closing machine for vials, now offered by NJM in the U.S. and Canada. Ideal for high-capacity, high-changeover lines, this fully servo-driven system runs up to 200 vials per minute using four heads at each station and can be customized to suit the needs of each biopharmaceutical customer.
NJM’s brand new Trotter 127 pressure sensitive labeler was also a hit. Building on the design of the popular Trotter 126, the Model 127 now offers even more flexibility and ease of use when applying wraparound, front-and-back and 3-, 4- and 5-panel labels to round, square, rectangular and oval bottles. At the Pack Expo show, we integrated it with OPTEL’s BottleTracker to achieve in-line serialization and facilitate aggregation on automated lines.
Also, a big congratulations to Sylvain Thibault and Richard Gauthier of NJM for being honored with the ProMach Superior Performance Award for going above and beyond for our customers. Way to go, guys!
We are saddened to say we lost a great man this month. Charles Lapierre helped build CLI (Charles Lapierre Inc.), which merged with NJM many years ago. He was a true leader in the pharmaceutical packaging industry. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
You can count on NJM equipment to always offer several standout advantages – heavy duty construction, extreme ease-of-use, minimal maintenance and more, backed by our world-class aftersales support. From there, we help each customer select the perfect machine for their specific application and objectives.
For secondary packaging, our new Model 403 Final Touch Print & Apply Labeler can be designed and built do virtually anything customers might need when labeling cases and shrink wrapped bundles. Debuting next month at Healthcare Packaging Expo Booth W-703, the 403 has a modular design, flexible PLC controls and a variety of optional label applicator tools, all of which maximize versatility. It can apply side labels, top labels, corner wrap labels and two-panel labels, as needed, and even features a swiveling yoke option to quickly switch between top and side labeling configurations. For further customization, the Allen Bradley PLC allows for additional inputs and outputs for different inspection systems and other controls that the customer might require.
Thanks to its impressive flexibility, the 403 Print & Apply Labeler is ideal for many types of products including pharmaceuticals, foods, beverages, cosmetics, household chemicals and more. For pharmaceutical manufacturers and contract packers, we can design the Model 403 to facilitate serialization and aggregation by connecting the printer to a plant-wide network and/or cloud-based communication system and integrating an optional vision system and reject device to automatically remove packages with faulty labels from the line.
The new 403 doesn’t slouch on speed either – depending on the application, it can label cases and bundles at speeds of up to 60 ppm. Recipe-controlled electronic adjustments enable the labeler to be changed over to handle a new package and label size and configuration in less than five minutes with no tools required.
