Compact, carbon-neutral, and digital – the Romaco Noack Unity 600 blister packaging line is a monobloc transfer solution that was specifically designed for blister formats arranged crosswise to the running direction. With a maximum output of 600 blisters and 400 cartons in a minute, the Unity 600 is a high-speed machine for medium to large batch sizes. It is an ultra-compact line that impresses with a very small footprint, especially in the cleanroom for the primary packaging. The modular system concept consists of a blister machine with rotary sealing and a continuous motion cartoner. If required, the Unity 600 can be combined with different cartoners, track and trace systems, and final packaging solutions from Romaco.

The Premium line of the Noack 950 product family can be configured with various feeding units and is extremely flexible in every respect. Reproducible parameters, lightweight format parts, and simple settings speed up the format and product changes. Excellent OEE values, low running costs, and a wide range of applications are further arguments in favor of Romaco Noack’s Unity 600. This easy-to-operate machine also ships with RFID-assisted user identification.

Maintenance and calibration planning for the blister packaging line are simplified by a service display in the HMI, which offers an automatic reminder of the next recommended inspection. Furthermore, Romaco’s Remote Assist service package ensures support in real-time regardless of the physical distance from the machine’s place of use. Faults and error messages are thus dealt with as quickly as possible, whether with Call 4 Service, smart glasses, or the status app.

The Unity 600 is additionally available in a carbon-neutral version on request. All CO2 emissions occurring during the production of the blister packaging line, including all components, are determined for this purpose. Romaco offsets the calculated emission values by sponsoring a climate protection project. Gold Standard certified Unity 600 machines are entitled to bear the “Carbon Neutral” label.

The Unity 600 blister packaging line from Romaco Noack can be seen at the Romaco Pharmatechnik GmbH facility in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
