Connect live and experience the latest innovations in medical packaging
We’re thrilled to be returning live and in-person to MD&M West this year in Anaheim, California. Join us at the show to learn more about how thermoforming and flow wrapping solutions can meet your medical packaging needs.
This past year has turned the medical packaging industry upside-down, highlighting the need for speed, sanitization, and documentation more than ever. It’s important that your machine can adapt to your packaging needs as demand shifts or medical industry standards change.
You have a partner in managing that change.
Flexibility has consistently been a focus for us as we strive to build productive, cost-efficient, lasting medical packaging solutions. Our booth and live presentation at MD&M West will highlight some of the innovations in packaging that enable this enhanced flexibility for medical device producers.
Get a sneak peek of the machines we’ll be bringing to the show. We’ll be highlighting thermoforming, flow wrapping, automation, and augmented reality, but you can learn more about tray sealing solutions on our website.

Augmented Reality, Procedural Enforcement and Risk Reduction
Alexander Ouellet, Innovation Engineer
Harpak-ULMA is executing a multi-year plan to deliver Digital Transformation to the medical packaging industry – and Augmented Reality (AR) is one of four key customer-facing technologies the company is delivering as part of their comprehensive packaging solution. Producers providing expert guidance on demand or in-context training anywhere, anytime are both extremely valuable additions to any packaging operation. But what you might not know is that AR guidance can also enforce in-sequence manual operational processes to ensure compliance and create the requisite audit trail. Join Alexander to learn how AR capabilities can enhance packaging operations for medical devices while improving compliance and providing safe, functional solutions in an ever-changing environment.
Flow Wrapping Solutions
Flow wrap solutions have broad applications and plenty of built-in flexibility, giving you the ability to easily adapt to different product sizes and packages.
Flow wrappers are also dual-purpose machines, which can be designed to run several different film types like polypropylene, laminate, and polyolefin shrink. Flexible machine components also allow you to change your seal rollers, cross seal jaws, and folding boxes to create the ideal package to meet your patients’ and personnel’s needs.
These machines also help you reduce downtime with simple, tool-free, single-person changeovers that take ten minutes or less.
Allen Bradley controls are available on our Atlanta, Artic, and Flow Vac 55 SD models. These controls provide familiarity to trained technicians and supply more readily available parts.
On the Show Floor
Here’s a first look at the flow wrapping solutions you’ll be able to see live at MD&M West.
Atlanta[Pictured first on the right] This horizontal flow wrapper offers unmatched strength, ease of operation, and reliability.
Thermoforming solutions are genuinely flexible and great for all types of medical applications.
Your packaging can adapt to changing markets and trends with various package formats and sizes available on the same machine, including vacuum, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), and skin. You also have the option of running flexible and/or semi-rigid films.
Our thermoforming solutions also help you reduce downtime with simple tool-free, single-person changeovers that take 10 minutes or less.
Allen-Bradley® controls are available on our standard and skin thermoformers. They come standard on our TFS 500 through TFS 700 models. These controls may be more familiar to trained technicians and ensure more readily available parts.

Product to Pallet Automation
Automation affords several significant benefits for packaging manufacturers. It reduces operational spending by lowering labor costs, minimizing waste from human interaction, increasing throughput and productivity, and creating a safer work environment by replacing repetitive, strenuous, manual jobs.
We have secondary packaging options for top loading, side loading, bottom loading, and wrap-around case packing.
We address conventional packaging automation equipment as well as advancements in robotic automation that are paving the way to new levels of scalability and cost containment for producers of every size in the medical industry. Robotics can now handle depalletizing, de-casing, infeed handling, raw food handling, primary packaging, secondary packaging, mixing (combo packs), and palletizing. Speed to market, standardization, cost, and reusability are all concerns when deciding whether to use automation and how much of your line to automate. Harpak-ULMA helps with every aspect of your production, from start to finish.
Have questions before the show?
We’re excited to reconnect in person at MD&M West, but we’re also happy to be a resource for you year-round. If you have a packaging need or question, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’ll connect you with our packaging experts and deliver the guidance and insight you deserve.
