COVID-19 has created an increase in demand for medical equipment like syringes. With an influx of current and future syringe orders due to the ongoing pandemic, manufacturers need to prepare throughout the production chain including an increase of packaging capabilities. Ensuring the proper materials, package design and technology are critical to guarantee product integrity and safe distribution from the manufacturing plant all the way to the patient.
How To Make Sure Your Medical Stay Sterile And Aseptic?
It’s important to make sure your medical supply stay sterile, since and contamination during production could lead to catastrophic consequences. As for the package, it’s crucial to make sure the pack can be easily and hygienically opened by the healthcare workers. Consider measures like using tamper evident materials and a packaging designed to guarantee a sterile syringe upon opening. Moreover,your medical packaging may need to undergo sterilization techniques such as steam-heat treatments, use of gases, and Gamma or E-Beam radiation. Ease of sterilization for the machine and packages is a priority when considering your packaging machine.
What Is Thermoforming?
Typically medical packaging uses the thermoforming packaging method.This is the use of heat and pressure when forming the tray to allow product（like syringe）to be manually or automatically filled into the tray cavity. The tray is then sealed with lidding material and enters into longitudinal and traverse cutting to obtain individual packages. Depending on the packaging support requirements of your medical products, thermoforming can be accomplished using a flexible film base, semi- rigid or rigid film base. Lidding can consist of paper, tyvec, foil or film.
What Thermoforming Machine Should I Be Considering?
Thermoforming packaging machines are exceptional for packaging medical devices such as syringes, gauze, kits & other disposables. Depending on the answers to your questions such as output, plant floor space, and even budget, that would determine which size thermoforming packaging machine would fit your needs. The smaller the machine the smaller the output and the bigger the machine the bigger the output.Usually, medical manufacturers prefer a medium or large sized machine with a higher output. Additionally, when choosing your packaging partner for a thermoforming packaging machine, consider an operator friendly interface, sterile and aseptic practices, and ease of access for technical reasons in design.
