Blister packing machine is electro-mechanical equipment that consists of fixed and moving parts that aid to seal products in preformed cavities. It forms holesorcavitieson formable web material, fills the cavities and covers them with a suitable material. It is used as unit-dose packaging for pharmaceutical capsules, tablets, etc. Its crucial component is a cavity or pocket made from a formable film, usually, a cold-formed aluminum film and thermoformed plastic. It usually has a lidding seal of aluminum foil. Using several packaging materials and principles of forming, blister packs are divided into three types: aluminum/aluminum (cold forming) blister pack, aluminum/plastic (thermoforming) blister pack, and aluminum/plastic/aluminum blister pack. Nowadays, manufacturers & packagers recognized some advantages of blister packaging such as reduced costs, prevention of broken glass bottles and higher packaging speeds relative to other packaging materials.
