TF1pro Medium Output, World-Class cGMP Blister Machine NEW

Request More Information ›

The “pro” machine incorporates many new and exciting innovations in blister packaging. With speeds up to 100 indexes per minute and a usable forming range of 120mm x 165mm, the TF1pro blister machine is a versatile platform. It is not only designed with the latest cGMP features, but it can also be configured to transfer blisters out the front, rear, or inline with the machine.

The TF1pro is the most sophisticated system in Pharmaworks’ popular TF1 family of compact blister machines.

Designed to maximize product safety and ease cleaning, the TF1pro offers sophisticated cGMP features including sloped surfaces, a positive reject / transfer station, overload detection and an enclosing for base material. It’s ideal for manufacturers and contract packers with medium and small batch sizes, and changes over in less than 10 minutes with no tools required.

Fully servo-driven, the intermittent motion TF1pro supports both thermoforming and cold forming applications and is compatible with all corresponding materials. It is suitable for tablets, capsules, softgels, vials, syringes, liquids and more.

Pharmaworks can customize the TF1pro with a wide variety of options including different feeders, accessories and floor plans as well as selective forming, low level detection alerts and pinhole detection.
