TOWACO, NJ - Uhlmann, the worldwide leader in blister packaging technology, will introduce its new BEC 500 Blister Express Center to the U.S. market at Booth # 5102 at Pack Expo International 2006, October 29 - November 2 at Chicago's McCormick Place. The BEC 500, which consists of an Uhlmann B 1550 Blister Machine and the world's fastest cartoner, the new Uhlmann C 2504 Cartoner, offers maximum flexibility and high speed performance in one line for pharmaceutical packaging.

With GMP-compliant machine design, innovative features, intelligent components and sophisticated, reliable process steps, the BEC 500 is the fastest single-lane blister line in the world. Capable of attaining an output of 500 packages per minute, the BEC 500 is the only blister machine in the world that allows for the continuous running of film without pause or interruption. It also provides full compensation for shrinkage, blister by blister; incorporates "good product" engineering that allows only good blisters and correctly filled cartons to be processed; and has integrated touch-control systems that save changeover time, minimize sources of error, and guarantee maximum process reliability.

Uhlmann will also unveil its newest rebuilt UPS 3 Blister machine at Pack Expo. Featuring the latest control systems and the world's only Visio4U in-line leak detection system that can run at production speeds, the rebuilt UPS 3 is the perfect choice for those who were previously unable to afford an Uhlmann Blister Machine. Available at approximately half the price of a new machine, it offers renowned Uhlmann performance and reliability along with a one-year new machine warranty.

With products that include blister machines, cartoning systems, line-monitoring and control systems, and downstream packaging machinery, the company provides the North American pharmaceutical industry with sales support, service technicians, on-site training, parts inventory, tool manufacturing and rebuilt machinery, and on-site engineering for line integrations.
