Performance in sterile medical packaging

As medical device packaging requirements tighten, the MD-series pouch sealers are ready to face these new more rigorous regulatory mandates. With the MD-series packaging machines, the sealing process is managed with tight thermal controls and a highly accurate transducer that monitor sealing force. Fixed pressure and conveyance speed allow for a simple design of experiment (DOE) when developing your medical device packaging validation. Every new MD-series pouch sealer is delivered calibrated from our ISO-17025 accredited laboratory, ready to begin the packaging of your medical device.

  • Easy feed ergonomic packaging
  • Alphanumeric and symbol printing
  • Simple setup with step menu
  • Requires no air supply to operate
  • Tight thermal accuracy +/- 2%
  • Seal check system for validation

Seal and print your medical device pouch in a single step

Simply feed the open end of your medical device pouch into the MD-850/880 conveyance system and the sealer will feed your pouch though dual-heated platens that are precisely controlled with the systems accurate control-board. After sealing the MD-850/880 can print important data onto the pouch such as expiration and lot coding.

MD-850 Sealer

Choose the MD-850 if your need the basic requirements of sealing and printing a medical device pouch. A proven performer, this has been our most popular rotary sealer for over 15 years.

MD-880 Sealer

Choose the MD-880 if you wish to add the ValiScan barcode scanner for sealer input. Additional printing options as well as variable speed control and data collection for more advanced requirements.

MD-3010/20 Sealer

Choose the MD-3010/20 if you wish to utilize the robust features of the MD-880 model as well as our touch screen interface. This advanced sealer can also print 2 lines of data as well as barcoding.

For over a decade, the MD 850/880 medical pouch sealers have been introduced into cleanrooms across North America in order to meet the high demand of the growing medical device industry. Despite the MD 850/880’s incredible feature list and performance capabilities, the size of the unit is impressively small and able to sit on any countertop in your cleanroom to work as a high-output packaging machine. The MD 850/880 was designed from the very beginning to meet the rigorous and tightening requirements of ISO 11607. This continuous feed packaging machine can develop impressive output every shift.
Feed the open end of your pouch and the MD 850/880 advanced conveyance system feeds your pouch across dual-heated platens that are precisely controlled using the system’s onboard computer. As your pouch conveys through the system, it now enters into the transducer-monitored pinch roller that engenders approximately 100 Newtons of force onto the pouch, finishing the sealing and curing process. After the pouch is sealed, it continues past the printhead and the unit now can print important markings such as ISO symbolization, expiration dating, date of manufacturing, lot codes, etc. All the printing is performed on the tailing end, on the non-sterile side of the seal.
Both MD 850 and MD 880 medical device packagers are designed for a simple validation process. Because the speed and pressure are fixed and monitored attributes, validation is developed through temperature adjustments only. This feature simplifies the design of experiment process as you create your sterile packaging validation. For ease of calibration these units utilize a machine-driven algorithm for a more accurate process. An intuitive menu system makes for easy setup when programming functions. The MD 850/880 can be used with our roller table in order to support heavy medical devices, such as orthopedic implants.

Fast and Ergonomic

This affordable sealer has been the go to packager for startup medical device companies as well as the nations largest medical device makers. The MD-series sealer can be fed continuously to deliver an impressive daily output. The operator simply feeds the unopened end of the pouch into the unit and sealer quickly seals and prints the pouch. The MD-series sealers are designed to meet the regulatory demands of the ISO-11607 standard. Our stainless steel body allows for shift to shift wipedowns in order to manage bio-burden at your packaging station. Contact our engineering group and learn how the MD-series sealer can change the way you package.
