Packing Innovation at Lab Innovations

Automated Packaging Systems will be showcasing their recently launched Autobag® AB 180 HDE at Lab Innovations 2013, Stand A17.
 
Autobag AB 180 HDE is specifically designed for clean room packing of medical devices and goods requiring terminal sterilization, which is why it was the ideal solution for PPI Medical.
 
French medical plastics specialist PPI Medical launched its innovative new mouth guard just five years after work on the project began. Historically PPI Medical outsourced its packing to a contractor but with the new product came the decision to invest in a clean room and pack in-house.

PPI Medical turned to specialist bag and pouch systems manufacturer Automated Packaging Systems, a business with a global reputation for reliability and quality, and commissioned the new Autobag AB 180 HDE.  The system, which can be configured for manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic operation, delivers a validatable seal to meet the specific needs of the medical market.

Nicolas Kalisz, Automated Packaging Systems head of operations in France and the man responsible for ensuring the Autobag AB 180 HDE works for PPI Medical, explains: "Our medical sector clients make very specific demands on a packing system, so we have developed one capable of producing a validatable seal even on multi layer pouches which combine barrier films with medical papers.
 
While its specialist medical pouch system is relatively new, Automated Packaging Systems Autobag AB 180 has been used for years to pack medical devices and products that don't require in-pack sterilisation. With global sales approaching £150 million, a new specialist system for medical applications, and new materials under development, its share of the medical sector is set to increase.
 
Visitors to Lab Innovations – 6-7 November 2013 at the NEC – can see the Autobag AB 180 HDE in action on the Automated Packaging Systems Stand A17 or visit www.autobag.co.uk.
