Blister Packaging Machine
Blister Packaging Machines are used to seal high visibility blister and
clamshell packages using a variety of techniques -- heat sealing,
fusion-welding, and radio frequency (RF) sealing - and many different types
of plastics. Blister packaging machines are increasingly used for packaging
products in the pharmaceutical industry as well as the food & beverage
In pharmaceutical industry Blister Packaging Machines are used for the
packing tablets, capsules, pills and other similar products packing. The
packing process start with the capsules or tablets being loaded into a
hopper and then into a feeder, which in turn can either be linear feeder or
a brush box feeder depending on the shape of the product and also the
material to be used. Heated rollers in the machine use different plastic
films to form blisters that are subsequently filled with tablets. Some
machines make use of aluminum foil to form blisters.
Machines are manufactured according to the size, depth and material used to
form blisters. After tablets have been inserted in the formed blisters,
cavities are heat sealed using foil. Blister Sealing Machines are used to
seal filled plastic blister to a piece of coated carton board, by heat. The
blister is kept in the sealing die which has the same shape as that of the
The cavities are then filled and sealed by a foil suing heat.
