Valco Melton, a leading manufacturer of adhesive dispensing equipment, has developed an innovative tamper evident solution for pharmaceutical industry packaging.
After the Falsified Medicines Directive has come into force in February, all pharmaceutical manufacturers will be required to adapt their packaging lines so products are better protected against damage or fraud. Valco Melton has designed a hot melt-based technology system, ensuring that, once packaging is sealed, flaps must be broken in order to open the carton. The company says such a system guarantees that content has not been manipulated and the carton re-sealed. Apart from its effectiveness, this flexible technology can be easily integrated into any new or existing line and is capable of working at the highest speed lines without interfering with the workflow. Valco Melton’s adds its systems are available in different mounting configurations and are specifically engineered to minimise downtime and maintenance.
