Ulma takes centre stage with latest medical packaging technology

Nov 05, 2014 03:43 PM

ULMA Packaging Ltd will be promoting a range of automatic packaging solutions specifically designed for the medical sector when the company exhibits at this year’s Compamed in Dusseldorf, Germany.


ULMA, in addition to its own stand, will also be exhibiting with a leading healthcare provider offering the latest technology available for packing life-saving supplies that meet the strictest hygienic standards required by the medical and pharmaceutical industries.


Showcasing on stand C01 Hall 08a will be the company’s FM 305 horizontal flowrapper and the TFS 400 flexible thermoformer. Meanwhile ULMA’S TFS 300 thermoforming equipment will also be demonstrated at the Arjowiggins Healthcare’s stand (Hall 6 D05) - the world leader for supplying porous substrates to the medical device packaging and hospital sterilization industry.


Designed for securely packaging delicate medical and pharmaceutical products in a variety of materials including plastic, medical paper, Tyvek® and aluminised film, ULMA’s extensive product line makes it the only supplier able to offer such a wide range of packaging solutions for the medical industry.


FM 305 incorporates a ‘oval’ motion profile in the jaw, a streamlined simple to operate console and an ergonomically designed cantilever to reduce debris accumulation, making cleaning and sanitising far easier. It has been built around a state of the art PC processor which stores up to 99 different packaging profiles, enabling a high level of flexibility for different product changeovers.


Sharing the spotlight with the FM 305 will be machines from ULMA’s renowned flexible thermoforming range the TFS 400 and TFS 300, for flexible or rigid film with modified atmosphere (MAP) and vacuum options, which provide secure sealing that protects medical products such as infusion bags, surgical brushes, petri dishes and syringes.


The thermoformers’ characteristics make them highly desirable for mixed production requirements, since formats can be easily adapted to meet the needs of the customer. Versatility, easy operation and quick size change add to the appeal.


ULMA managing director, Chris Pickles, said: “ULMA is probably better known in the UK for supplying the food industry, but we also offer an extensive range of high quality equipment for medical packing making a visit to our stand very worthwhile for those at the show seeking the latest in packaging technology.”


The company’s technical team will be on hand to discuss the high quality range of equipment for medical packaging that ULMA will have on display, providing further details of one of the biggest range of solutions available anywhere in the UK.
