It’s necessary to protect capsules and tablets from contaminants such as moisture or oxygen in the packaging.

Manual blister filling for small and medium sized production runs

The Minipharma by Tommy Nielsen combines the forming of the blister with the sealing in one machine for minimal exposure to external influences. It’s designed to automatically form and seal blisters for packaging of medical products and as a standard produces plastic-aluminium blister packaging or if desired, alu-alu blister packaging. Blisters and lidding material are formed and sealed from roll stock material and the formed and sealed packages are punched free of excess material. The machine has a forming and sealing station as well as an embossing module to add batch numbers and a punching station for the cutting tool.

The machine is designed to produce small and medium sized production runs with manual filling of the blisters. The filling area length and the filling height can be adjusted according to demands. The machine can produce up to 1,800 blisters per hour with a single blister tool.
