MD-480 medical pouch sealer




The MD-480 medical device roll-stock pouch sealer incorporates all of the validation features of the full-sized OEM systems. This sleek sealer conforms with ISO 11607-part 2 compliance.

Seal roll-stock pouches with speed and accuracy

With a small, sleek form factor the MD-480 is a full-featured medical device pouch sealer for the sealing and cutting of roll-stock pouches. The large 4.3” touchscreen on the MD-480 has an easy to read interface for setup and will display system status and warning messages. Rapid heat-up means in just a few moments the system is up and running. Sealing times are only around three seconds. The MD-480 features an integrated piece counter to better manage demanding workflows. The integrated cutting device means that the best pouch length can be cut to the appropriate size for the instrument being packaged.

Connected sterile packaging

With Industry 4.0 in mind the innovative DocLink communication module integrated with the MD-480 can be linked to batch documentation systems. DocLink has USB A/B and RS 232 interfaces to expand connectivity. The Ethernet interface makes the MD-480 network-compatible for enterprise integration.

Real time system monitoring

Smart sealing systems for the packaging of medical devices is the new expectation of the regulatory bodies and informed patients. Intelligent packaging means the MD-480 monitors the critical process parameters of temperature, pressure, and sealing time to assure the safe, sterile delivery of medical devices.

Large touch screen display

The large 4.3-inch touch screen and the Linux operating system, together with the App Ctrl user applications, allows you to call up instrument and programming functions with ease. Our intuitive setup screen makes system changes easy and clear, and the bright screen thwarts input confusion due to low visibility.

As the regulatory environment shifts towards a zero failure model in sterile processing, Van der Stähl Scientific will be there to meet the challenge with stellar technologies and certified support. Join our mission of total patient safety.

MD-480 Hospital and clinic packaging solution

The MD-480 creates a wide 10 mm (0.4 inch) seal to create a wider margin of safety between the sterile device and the ambient environment. The MD-480 utilizes our seal check system that shows the critical parameters that are being generated by the sealer in the display for fast referencing. The machine values can be entered into documentations or spreadsheets for record archiving. Data can be recorded on a conventional USB drive and transferred to any (pc or Mac) for further data processing. Powerful data management from the point of packaging is the future of sterile device packaging.
