SYstem for Filling Parenterals Aseptically into Containers of plastic materials
SYFPAC® shuttle machines work on Blow Fill Seal technology and allow an advanced aseptic process of primary packaging of liquid products.
Our shuttle-type machines are equipped with modular moulds that are exclusively produced at our factory. Each mould is uniquely designed on the specific requests of the final product, to allow the best flexibility in shape, size and embossing of variable information. Moulds can have up to 50 cavities and allow production of different volumes by simple changes of inserts. We carefully select the materials to build the mould based on the polymers, products and chemicals that come in contact with it.
FLEXIBLE CHOICE OF POLYMERS
The unique design of SYFPAC® allows the use of different types of polymer with no change of mould nor complex operations. On the same mould and the same machine you can use different plastic materials like PP, PE or HDPE. To change polymer, you will only need to set the new recipe, with no need to dismantle the mould nor change any spare parts. The choice of the resin depends on factors as bottle design, product stability and end-user requirements. These materials are compatible with several pharmaceutical substances in accordance with US, EU and other pharmacopoeias, and are easily available on all markets.
FROM STANDARD TO FULL OPTIONAL
Each SYFPAC® machine is uniquely built with top quality components, with standard features always implemented by specific requests to meet the customer’s needs. To mention only a few examples: possibility of black and white separation, addition of inert gas, recirculation loop for suspensions, modification for temperature sensitive formulations, inserts to emboss variable information.
CONTAINER DESIGNED TO MEET SPECIFIC NEEDS
The standard SYFPAC® design can be customized with a wide choice of optional items and functions. Custom-tailored shapes for the containers include the possibility to adjust the head shape to the product application. For vials and ampoules that means different types of luer connection, screw heads, or twist off openings. For bottles, a brilliant example is our Eco-head design, which brings an eco-friendly and economic solution to large volume parenterals packaging by eliminating the need of secondary capping.
PARISON THICKNESS CONTROL
Thanks to its special engineering, SYFPAC® can control the wall thickness of the parison and allows to manufacture containers from very rigid to lightweight, self-collapsible to the extent of imitating flexible bags. This particular feature significantly reduces plastic consumption up to 30% compared to traditional machines.
