The medical products distribution field follows strict guidelines. Medical products need a sterile environment during both the packaging and case packing process. Simply put, medical products need a two-part packaging solution – machines that can efficiently produce both packaging and case packing that keeps products sterile.
Very often, medical product manufacturers can find one company to fulfill one part of the solution (such as case packing) but must look to another for packaging. Including a third OEM supplier can lead to unexpected issues, such as miscommunication, delays and finger-pointing should problems arise. Ideally, this two-part solution should be handled by one company that can provide both the packaging and case packing for product delivery.
Finding a company who can coordinate and deliver on both tasks is unique. But when you work with Brenton, you have access to more than 40 brands within the ProMach family of companies. All the technology, innovation and expertise you need for a fully integrated line is available to you with ProMach.
A good example of this level of collaboration is found regularly between Brenton and Ossid. While Brenton provides the medical-grade case packing, Ossid delivers the customized sterile product packaging. When these two companies work with you for one solution, you are getting a system that’s engineered specifically for your medical packaging application.
When it comes to the pairing of Ossid and Brenton equipment, the overall design recommendation is very much driven by the type of secondary packaging that is required, i.e., carton, case, tray or other. The end package drives the solution. Typically, the solutions use robotics to pick the product from a transition conveyor that is between the Ossid and Brenton systems. The product is picked and placed into an awaiting carton, case or tray. The Brenton equipment will form the carton, case or tray and present in a manner that allows for the Brenton robotic pick in place to load into. Once placed the Brenton system will inspect, close and mark or label the carton, case or tray for further down-stream packaging.
Often matched with a Brenton system is Ossid’s 8000M primary packaging machine. The 8000M is medical device thermoform, fill, and seal machine made for packing a variety of medical devices like sutures, syringes, drapes, IVs and other products. It can also package immediate-need medical products like the COVID-19 vaccine. The 8000M can be customized for the specific needs of each device, making production easier and consistent.
The 8000M’s transparent polycarbonate shell facilitates a safe 360° view of key operations for fast problem resolution. The 8000M platform, combined with custom features for every application, produces a robust machine that will run trouble-free for years at up to 30 indexes per minute. Brenton can receive the product from Ossid’s 8000M and provide the secondary packaging process as needed thru palletizing and wrapping to provide a full turn key solution.
Tapping into brands such as Ossid and Brenton for packaging and case packing your medical device products allows them to take the lead in project management. Their strategy and level of collaboration produces a full turn-key system from the primary package all the way to the pallet. This entire process is very seamless for you as they do all the heavy lifting in bring your medical device packaging vision to life.
