Flow Wrapping vs. Thermoforming
Flow Wrapping, Explained:
So which option is right for you?
When comparing the two technologies, a number of considerations need to be taken into account: printable area, sealing, material consistency, types of material, sterilization, process validation, products, additional benefits, initial investment, speed/maximum number of packages per minute.
In certain applications flow wrapping can be the preferred, cost-effective solution; particularly in light of recent innovations in applying chevron seals. In many typical applications, thermoforming will remain the preferred solution for disposable medical devices.

Regulatory Considerations in Medical Packaging
Meeting All of Your Packaging Needs while Fulfilling the Necessary Standards and Requirements
Packaging can impact many facets of product design, including traceability, but in this context it’s the sterile barrier guarantee that makes it subject to rigorous testing and validation.
Several packaging standards are in place today, but the type of regulations that apply will depend on the kind of packaging required, and our solutions meet them all, like ISO 11607, EN 868, ASTM D1585, ASTM F2097 and ASTM F3475-11.
Frequently concentration is put on the device itself in efforts to address regulatory concerns. Is it safe, is it sterile, does it perform its function? However, medical packaging is equally important to the device safety, efficacy and performance.
Packaging solution providers that know how to leverage the latest packaging innovations within the bounds of regulatory requirements, have the in-house capabilities to support such innovation, and can cost-effectively manage the phases of validation process.
Product to Pallet Automation
Automation affords several major benefits for packaging manufacturers. It reduces operational costs by lowering labor costs and minimizing waste from human interaction, increases throughput and productivity, and creates a safer work environment by replacing repetitive and strenuous manual jobs.
