Challenge

To develop a next-generation, high speed dosing machine and primary packaging solution for a well-established, 100-year old brand. Crucially, the solution needed to achieve best practice in a modern manufacturing environment, while also maintaining the precise look and feel of this popular product.

Solution

Drawing on our expertise in web handling and precision powder dosing, Mpac took a fresh approach to the production process.

We designed and delivered a high-speed, continuous motion machine capable of individually dosing pharmaceutical powder into a constantly moving web, before completing multiple converting operations to produce the final product. This achievement was thanks to innovative mechanisms that completed a series of folds, cuts, creases and closures to create the desired format of the finished pack.

Individual packs were then collated at high speed and fed into a variety of secondary packaging equipment, such as standard cartoner formats and a bespoke enveloper machine designed by Mpac.

The resulting product replicated its legacy counterpart in every way but – at speeds of 750 packs per minute – was produced over ten times faster than the original system.
