The robotic monoblock Unica, which integrates deep-draw thermoforming, robotic pick-and-place transfer, and carton packaging operations, was displayed at Pack Expo International by Marchesini Group. Taking up only a small footprint of 26.5 ft, the system can be used to package syringes, vials, and carpules as well as small containers, tubes, and dispensers.
A company representative tells PMP News that Unica can also be used for sterile medical thermoformed packaging.
