Machines for uncomplicated production of stickpacks
Stickpacks are becoming more and more popular with consumers, because they find them convenient. The product is perfectly portioned and can be taken quickly and simply, even on the go.
For manufacturers, stickpacks have promising possibilities, especially in terms of differentiation from the competition. The products can be fully printed on our machines, providing surfaces for brand messages right down to the primary packaging. For the same fill quantity, stickpacks consume up to 40% less material than sachets.
With its stickpack line, Mediseal presents an excellent solution for the primary and secondary packaging of free-flowing powders, granulates, pellets and liquids. The line is based on the existing LA600 SP stickpack machine. This was developed specifically for the needs of the pharmaceutical market. Intelligently linking together the LA600 SP and the P1600 cartoner, which has already notched up high sales, creates an ideal combination of proven technologies.
Developed to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical market
The LA600SP stickpack machine is designed for high process reliability, excellent output quality and high overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). The sticks are routed continuously through the packaging process. The sticks, positioned using the sideload method, are packaged at very high speed. Free fall or random distribution of the stickpacks is reliably prevented. Up to 1000 stickpacks per minute can be filled in this way.
The link to the Mediseal P1600 cartoner maintains the efficient guidance of the sticks. Almost any pack configuration is possible. The uniform arrangement of the sticks in the box is a highlight of the system. To achieve the absolute maximum in terms of performance, two stickpack machines can be linked to one cartoning machine. With 5 to 50 sticks per carton, the system achieves an output of up to 100 cartons per minute.

New! Individual stick weighing for Mediseal machines available
Using a new weighing module, you will in future be able to further increase the pharmaceutical security of your stickpack production. In contrast to the usual procedure, the sticks are not checked using random samples. Our new individual stick weighing system fully records and documents the weight of each individual stick. This enables 100 percent checking, and quality control costs are substantially reduced.
In addition, the new individual stick weighing system enables automatic feedback of the results to the installation's dosing system. In this way the machine operator can react quickly to trends indicating incorrect dosing and take appropriate corrective dosing measures. In particular, this enables the ramp-up phase after a product change to be shortened considerably.
