The MD-8000 is an innovative machine that combines a film reel dispenser and a heat sealer. This unique system automatically produces medical device pouches from standard reels in your desired length and widths.

Bring pouch making in-house

The MD-8000 Pouch making system combines a film reel dispenser and a heat sealer to automatically produce medical device pouches from standard reels in your desired quantity and length. The material consumption is kept to a minimum since the pouch length can be determined on a customized basis. With an output of up to 5,000 bags per hour and with the MD-8000’s compact dimensions, this machine is easy to integrate into your busy workflow. Operation and configuration are performed either via the integrated keypad or optionally using the innovative “hawo” intelligent scan system. The MD-8000 can be utilized with either flat or gusseted roll stock film. Take control of pouch inventory and save operational cost with the MD-8000.

Flexible and Compact

With the MD-8000 system, the pouch length can be determined on a customized basis. Utilize flat or gusseted pouch material from paper/ plastic or tyvek®/plastic. The material consumption is kept to a minimum reducing costs yet can operate in even the smallest of spaces.

High Output Rates

The MD-8000 high production rate is 14 cycles per minute (over 800 cycles per hour) allows pouches to be produced cost-effectively keeping up with demanding workflows. The wide reel holder can support up to six reels of film for a 5,000 pouches per hour capacity.

Data Collection

The MD-8000 as-v also features the option of recording critical process parameters on a USB stick drive. This data collection feature is designed to satisfy the requirement of routine documentation development of critical parameters in accordance with ISO 11607-2.

Control Pouch inventory

Managing multiple premade pouch sizes in your inventory is costly and can cause a host of challenges. With the all-new MD-8000 medical device pouch making system you can take control of your pouch inventory by making your own pouches in-house in a host of widths and lengths for the unique form factors of your devices. Correctly sized pouches help to assure a safer sterile barrier system by not burdening pouch edges with pouches that are too small or creating waste with pouches that are too large.

Validate your packaging

Whether you are a medical device manufacturing company, hospital or a clinic, managing inventories of premade pouches can be challenging. The MD-8000 not only offers incredible convenience and cost-saving for your organization, but the system also meets the demanding requirements of ISO-11607 part 2. With the optional sorting module, you can sort the finished pouches by size, conveniently remove, finish, bag and even shrink-wrap them. Call our engineering group at 800-550-3854 now and learn more about the exciting new MD-8000.
