ILLIG HSA: Form Fill Seal Thermoformed Blister Packaging

The automatic blister packing machine, HSA 50d, is a complete forming, filling, and sealing blister production system. Blister packs with thermoformed transparent caps can be produced by upgrading the system with card loader and pack lift-out device. The machine sets the standard with regard to mechanical construction as well as ease of operation. Precise setting of distances and speeds is ensured by the consistent use of servo motors in combination with state-of-the-art control and regulation technology.

Frequently Asked Questions

Thermoforming is a manufacturing process where a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product. The sheet, roll stock or “film” when referring to thinner gauges and certain material types, is heated to a high-enough temperature that permits it to be stretched into or onto a mold, utilizing positive and negative pressures and cooled to a finished shape.

Yes, all three are different technologies that can in the end produce very similar products. Injection molding requires the material typically plastic pellets to be 100% melted to liquid form, it is then injected into a mold at very high pressure. Blow molding starts with the fabrication of a starting tube called a parison. The parison can be pre-manufactured or extruded in line. The parison is heated, then filled with compressed air to inflate the parison to fill the mold. Thermoforming is considered the simplest and most economical forming type.

In thermoforming the product (and mold) are typically wider at the top and taper to narrower width, for example a plastic drinking cup. Or the side walls are perfectly vertical, for example a portion pack of butter. The two previous examples ustilize a very simple single piece mold, as the parts naturally have room to be easily removed from the mold. In negative draft thermofoming, we have the flexibility to work outside of these typical restrictions, by creating a two piece mold that can open to release the parts, we can form shapes that are wider at the bottom, than at the top, for example a ball shape.

PS-Polystyrene, PP-Polypropylene, PET-polyethylene terephthalate, PVC-Polyvinyl chloride, and more custom compounds depending on the application requirements.

Yes, due to Illig’s modular design, we were able to add a sterile cleaning and filling section to our machine, allowing us to form the container, clean/sterilize it, fill, and seal all in one machine.
