Thermoformers Create Packages of All Sizes

Thermoformers process a wide variety of materials and can make both large and small packages.

  A thermoform packaging machine is designed for automated packaging of medical devices. The MT2500 allows for the sealing dwell time, temperature, and pressure to be fully validated. The form-fill-seal machine offers quick-change tooling, a servomotor drive, and touch screen controls for rapid changeover and flexible operation. The MT2500's design allows for web widths from 11 to 25 in. that can be changed on-line, repeats up to 24 in., and draw depths down to 6 in. Doyen Medipharm Inc., Lakeland, FL.


A high-speed integrated blister packaging and cartoning system is designed for high-volume pharmaceutical packaging applications requiring versatility, flexibility, and ease of use.

The CP-1200 has a large format size range: blister packs may be up to 285 x 306 mm. In addition, the CP-1200 can be programmed to run 60 different package formats. Klöckner Medipak, Clearwater, FL.


A thermoformer provides self-sufficient operation at speeds of up to 300 blisters per minute. The UPS 1030 series of thermoformers are available in three versions: multistroke intermittent, multistroke continuous motion, and single stroke.
