Uhlmann Introduces the B1660 Blister Machine for High Output and High Speed Packaging

TOWACO, NJ - Uhlmann, the world wide leader in blister packaging technology, introduces the B1660 Blister Machine, a high performance model that is available in either continuous or intermittent motion configurations. The B1660 features:

o New SimTap 3 feeder (Simultaneous Tablet Placement)

o TouchScreen with 3D Visualization

A highlight of the Uhlmann B1660 is the blister transfer to the cartoner, a specially engineered process which saves space and cost by eliminating the need for an additional product chain in the cartoner.

Another exciting feature is the new SimTap 3 feeder which provides a large format range, making it ideal for high outputs. The SimTap 3 ensures that the number of tablets ready for placement correspond with the number of blister pockets ready to receive them. The SimTap 3 also has very few format parts and special servo-driven adjustments to facilitate changeovers and cleaning.
