Neopackaging NBM-140

Neopackaging Model NBM-140 Blister Packaging Machine

The Neopackaging NBM-140 automatic blister machine is designed for medium scale production environments (200 blister packs per minute) where flexibility and easy product change over is important.


It automatically forms the blisters, inserts the dosage forms, seals the film and then die cuts the film into individual blister packs. It can hot form PVC, PVC-PVC-PVDC and optionally cold form Alu laminates.


The NBM 140 is designed to cGMP guidelines, with a stainless steel cabinet and acrylic covers equipped with safety interlocks and security alarms. Control is accomplished by use of a user friendly Allen-Bradley® touch panel with an Allen-Bradley® PLC.


The inverted design with the forming station located in the lower cabinet and a separate feeding area minimizes the surface area required for installation resulting in a smaller footprint.


The variable length loading zone (900-1300mm) affords the possibility of accommodating a wide variety of accessories without having to change the blister platform. The standard machine comes with 316 stainless steel manual loading tray. Loading systems with powder aspiration, universal automatic feeders, semi-automatic feeders, vision inspection and pinhole detection systems are available as options.


A cooling circuit, which is ready to be connected to tap water or an optional closed loop cooler, is included.


The film heating zone utilizes a tunnel-type foil heater with Teflon coated plates and individual upper and lower temperature controls, making it suitable for multi-laminated foils, such as Aclar® and PVC-PVDC films. The forming station is capable of forming blisters to a depth of 16mm which means that it can handle larger forms such as vials, ampoules and syringes. A pneumatic cold forming station for Aluminum laminates and mechanically assisted forming for Aclar® are available as options.


Pneumatic actuators are used throughout with individual filters and regulators for each station. The pneumatic system, which uses standard, off-the-shelf Festo® components, is oil and maintenance free.


The flat thermo sealing station uses a heated plate with pneumatic actuators. For higher quality blisters, a linear sealing station with a strain gauge is available providing the ability to monitor and control the effective pressure applied during each cycle.


The pneumatic die cutting section includes a scrap cutter with the cutting tool.


It is easy to change the blister format on the NBM 140 which makes product changeover quick and easy
