Stripfoil Deblistering Technology


The Decartoner can open all carton types including tuck flap, glue flap and FMD tamper evident seals and is suitable for use with any blister types. With speeds of up to 40 cartons per minute, the Stripfoil Decartoner operates by cutting the flaps off the outer packaging before ejecting the blister pack, along with the patient information leaflet, into a bin for recovery, eliminating the need for manual opening with knives.

With a quick setting mechanism, the machine can be easily adjusted from one size to the next. Changing carton size is achieved by simply entering the carton dimensions into the machine which then automatically adjusts both the magazine and recovery system ready for the next product run.

Once removed from the cartons, the medication is ready to be removed from the individual blister packs using the Stripfoil Pharma deblistering machine.
