ULMA, experience and innovation on blister

Nov 24, 2009
ULMA Packaging, the leader in the production of packaging machines and systems, has improved its Univers machine model designed for the continuous production of any type of blister pack for non-food sectors such as electronics & electricity, paper, spare parts, hardware, household goods, drugstore & personal care, toys, etc.

With an accumulated experience of 50 years in packaging, and more than 15 years in blister packaging, ULMA now offers an automatic blister packaging machine that is the result of constant evolution.  This machine includes various characteristics that make it fully competitive for any company looking to package its products in blister type packages.

Hi FrecuencyHigh frequency sealing
Unlike most blister lines, which use the traditional thermosealing method, the Univers machine also offers the possibility of high frequency sealing.  This method is perfect for heavy products, thick films, and to obtain minimal sealing flaps.

Double blisterWide range of materials and type of packs
The machine is characterised by the possibility of creating any kind of blister, whether it´s plastic-cardboard, plastic-plastic, a second layer of paper, double blister, clamp shell, trays for boxes, etc.
The machine also works with any type of PVC or PET films, etc.

The Univers machine has been especially developed for high productions as well as for short series.  Its systems allow for quick and easy format changes, without requiring tools.
This is one of the most appreciated characteristics because many contract packer companies require lot of format changes due to a so varied demand of their customers.

Ergonomics and automation
The machine provides a wide and ergonomic loading area which makes easier to feed the product manually or automatically into the bubbles formed by the same machine.
Nowadays, ULMA has a wide offering of automatic loading systems which may be easily integrated with the machine in order to increase the packaging line’s productivity.

Hole blisterIndustrial PC
This consists of an industrial PC control system with a user-friendly communication interface that is fast and simple. Through a touch screen, the user has access to all the required information and all the parameters of the machine.

Packaging: added value

ULMA is aware of the added value offered by product packaging, which is especially important in blister applications.  As a result, ULMA complements its products by offering a technical consulting service that works together with its clients´ marketing departments in order to create the final designs they would like to use in the market.

All of this is backed by a company with quality customer service and technical support, 16 subsidiaries throughout the world, distributors in more than 50 countries, and many references of the Univers model installed at important international companies.

In summary, it´s an ideal solution for packaging all types of products that require an attractive image along with robust tamper resistance, ready to be displayed directly on store shelves for over-the-counter sale.
