For the growing market of one dose packaging Volpak added a new solution to its portfolio. For the healthcare and pharma sector the company now provides flexible packaging solutions with stick pack technology. 

The Stick-Pack solution addresses different needs that flexible packaging is confronted with today. The stick-pack is a unit dosage format, perfect to contain and deliver liquid health products for oral and topical use. Serving its purpose to protect the contents from moisture, oxygen, and light, thanks to its small size and compactness, the unit dose is user-friendly and very practical for everyday life.

Stick packs are especially useful for pharma and healthcare products in single doses.

Volpak, Ea, offers the pharma and healthcare industry a portfolio of cutting-edge and fully compliant solutions. The addition of the Enfex PHS series is part of a strategy aimed at widening and improving the range of available systems, with solutions that are increasingly targeted to specific market needs. This is the reason this machine focuses on the production and packaging of single-dose stick-packs to be used within a medical and family environment. The Enflex PHS Series can not only offer superior production performance (depending on its configuration, it can reach 1800 stick-packs per minute), but it also meets sustainability needs, with a reduction of 42 percent in wrapping material usage compared to units that are currently on the market. It is also equipped with a servomotor-based energy recovery system, allowing for savings on energy costs.

The Enflex PHS Series is available in multiple-lane setups and can be configured to meet the customer’s specific production needs. Regardless of the type, the whole Enflex PHS Series has a small footprint, with machines that can be effectively deployed even in small production areas. The format change operations are also easy on all machines: they can be completed quickly and with no special tools, which makes the Enflex PHS machine ideal for third-party suppliers and contractors as well as pharmaceutical companies. The OEE (Overall Equipment Efficiency) index of over 95 percent makes the Enflex PHS perfectly suitable for modern lean production needs and consistent with the Industry 4.0 framework.

In this respect, the Enflex PHS Series, just like every other Volpak machine, is equipped with OptiMate, the Coesia Digital HMI: a control panel that combines ease of use with advanced control functions. OptiMate accompanies and guides the operator in tasks such as format change or machine maintenance, while also letting them take complete control of the different functions. The smart interface facilitates the navigation of the different menus and simplifies procedures such as ordering spare parts, accessing technical documentation, and generating production reports.
