Enhance the sustainability of your packaging

An important step towards sustainability in packaging is the use of recycled material. In cartoning, this has been a widespread practice for years thanks to the ability of CAM cartoning machines to manage the cartons in positive mode with the consequent possibility of handling low weight cartons with a high percentage of recycled material.

Another strategy to reduce the impact of the packaging is the replacement of plastic for the packaging of vials vials and syringes. In fact, instead of the classic plastic tray, CAM machines allow you to use cardboard trays ensuring the highest production speed and the complete safety of the packaged product.

Thanks to these trays, not only is the need to produce plastic reduced, but also the recovery and recycling of the secondary packaging is facilitated, which is in fact completely made of paper and therefore does not require the tray to be separated from the case by the user.

CAM Redefine blister Recycling!

Blisters made entirely with a single recyclable polymer reduces waste and minimizes the environmental impact

Single-material blisters research is active since more than 20 years with the aim of facilitating their disposal because, generally, blisters for tablets or pills have an aluminium and a pvc moulding with a complex disposal.

Cut cleanroom consumption

Separation of the blister cutter allows the machine to be considerably reduced in the cleanroom

Production cycles involving primary packaging in clean rooms deserve a special mention. More and more often it is necessary to isolate the primary packaging area and in these cases it is very important to reduce the size of the cleanroom as much as possible because it is directly related to its costs and consumption.

CAM has recently received a patent certificate for a solution that allows common blister packaging machines to be divided into two or three sections in order to keep the part of the machine to be enclosed in a controlled atmosphere as small as possible.

A solution that not only reduces the cubage of the chamber, but also makes it possible to reduce the presence of operators to only those interventions that concern the primary phases, reducing their contact with products that may have negative effects on humans

Optimising machine consumption

Over the years, machines have undergone an optimisation process that has led to a reduction in inertia and friction in order to reduce the power of the motors that drive them, to the adoption of high-efficiency motors, and also to a precise sizing of the motors in order to avoid waste as much as possible.

Of course, the number of motors driving the machine also has a bearing on consumption; a machine with a single mechanical drive axis driving the main stations consumes less than a machine of the same type operated by a virtual axis with a motor for each station.
