Neopackaging NBM-65

The Neopackaging Model NBM-65 Automatic Blister Machine

The Neopackaging NBM-65 automatic blister machine is designed for small scale production environments (60 blister packs per minute) and is especially suited for R&D, pilot plant, clinical trials and galenic solid dosage oral form development. A number of different products can be packaged with just one platform.

This machine is ideal for research and development and other types of packaging environments with low production requirements. 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 65 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.


On the standard machine, manual loading of the product is facilitated by a 430mm loading zone that is easily accessible on both sides. The loading tray is manufactured of AISI 316 stainless steel. Loading trays with powder aspiration, automatic and semi-automatic feeders 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 positive air pressure forming station is mounted on steel columns and is capable of forming blisters to a depth of 12mm. 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 with standard steel ‘T’ Digits coding.


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


It is easy to change the blister format on the NBM 65 which makes product changeover quick and easy.
