Cartoner installation paves way for Interpack demonstration

14 April 2008

Romaco’s first P91 S intermittent motion cartoner will be stopping off at Interpack, Düsseldorf, on its way to installation at a Farmigea pharmaceutical plant. Visitors to the show, April 24 to 30, will be the first members of the public to see the machine, claimed to be the fastest intermittent motion cartoner with balcony design.

With an output of 140 cartons a minute, the machine is claimed to be the Karlsruhe, Germany manufacturer’s first model to reach the level of performance of continuous motion cartoners.

Farmigea, Italian pharmaceutical company, will use the machine to package sterile eye drops.

Marco Benvenuti, plant manager at Farmigea, said he expected the machine to save time and reduce costs.

Gianluca Salieri, of Romaco, described the companies as ‘partners’.

Salieri said: ‘The depth of care given in the commissioning of a new installation and beyond is a particular matter of concern to us’.

Actuators and a Venturi vacuum unit are designed to reduce noise and product transfer by means of a timing belt replaces the use of chains and mechanical cogs. This is claimed to reduce cleaning intervals and expense of care and maintenance, as well as preventing early signs of wear. Safety clutches are designed to protect the cartoner from mechanical overload.

‘The new cartoner is an investment in greater safety at work, which at the same time pays for itself in terms of business,’ Benvenuti said. ‘We convinced Farmigea by the perfect price-performance ratio of the P91 series, due to its low maintenance costs, low operating expenses and continuous performance.’
