Annual production of several million units and cost optimization are some of the reasons that drive pharmaceutical companies to internalize the production of their primary packaging with industrial tools such as Form Fill Seal (
The FFS machines have the advantage of combining all the steps in the packaging process of an intravenous product: manufacture of the primary packaging, printing, filling, insertion of connectors, sealing and closing of the tubes. The process also includes the control phases that verify the final volume according to the weight, as well as leaks that are detected in the vacuum chamber (Pressure decay testers) or by pressure, and to verify the solidity of the bag by high tension.
Following the fill and the seal, the bags are put on the trays and enter the autoclave sterilization chambers.
FFS are also flexible. They can be customized to allow the manufacturer different packaging formats: single or multiple volume compartments with peelable seals, tubes, etc. The films used must also meet numerous requirements: chemical inertia to avoid interactions between the container and the contents, barrier properties depending on the product. These are the features of our co-extruded films, which are compatible with the regulatory requirements and industrial tools on the market.
