Bossar’s BMK 2000 FLT duplex

Packing hospital kits for testing malaria, AIDS

The BMK 2000 FLT duplex, a model with sanitary design following pharma regulations, produces up to 110 pouches a minute with product filling

The configuration of the new Bossar packaging equipment (BMK 2000 FLT duplex) is based on 4-sided seal flat pouches in duplex execution, with 0% residual oxygen, in order to reach the output the customer needs. The products to be packaged are medical testers used in hospitals, which require the highest safety standards and quality control during the form, fill and seal process.

Once the pouch is formed, the product is filled into the pouch in two phases – first a ‘scavenger’ small sachet for oxygen absorption is filled while keeping the lowest oxygen residual level and, afterwards, the testing cassette containing the reactive for making the analysis is filled into the pouch while eliminating any risk that would jeopardize its effectiveness.

The technology used to fill the pouches consists in an oxygen absorbent pouch dispenser from a roll, which is hermetically sealed for the pouches not to lose their attributes and is opened only before starting the filling process. The sachets dispenser cuts the sachets from the roll one-by-one and places them on a bucket conveyor belt; one piece is placed in each bucket

A product detector checks and controls that the small sachet is filled into the pouch. In case of filling failure, the pouch is rejected. The testers are filled into the pouch in the second filling station. An inclined conveyor takes them to a vibrating bowl adapted to the special characteristics of the testing kits. The kits go through a guide system that places them in the right orientation, until they reach the step-by-step separator, which synchronizes their drop into the pouch with the pouch opening, which already contains the small desiccant pouch. In this station there is also a detector that controls and guarantees the product dosing. In case the product fails to drop, the pouch is rejected before the sealing station.

The plastic kits that contain the reactant for malaria and AIDS tests have different sizes and shapes, and the same happens with the desiccant pouches. The machine was constructed to fill both plastic kits versions and there is no need to make any change or adjustments, bringing benefits to the customer since there is no need to make any format changes.

The BMK 2000 FLT duplex, a model with sanitary design following pharma regulations, produces up to 110 pouches a minute with product filling.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
