    Thermoforming packaging machines for sensitive and complex products


    Thermoforming packaging machines in the MULTIVAC Clean Design™ have significant advantages for packaging sensitive pharmaceutical and biotech products. They achieve a high level of efficiency, even with small batch sizes, and they offer the greatest possible degree of process reliability, since they ensure that, among other features included, complete line clearance can be achieved.

    Machine design to meet the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry

    The innovative machine concept enables a strict separation to be achieved between the product processing area and the machine technology area. Transparent enclosures with large-area doors guard against direct access and environmental influences. The enclosures also offer perfect visibility and cleanability.

    High level of versatility

    Thermoforming packaging machines in the MULTIVAC Clean Design™ also offer great versatility with regard to packaging materials, format sizes and forming depths. A quick and simple format change facilitates conversion of the machine, even for small batch sizes. The packaging system is also designed for the production of modified atmosphere packs (MAP).

    Modular construction

    The systematic modular construction gives a high level of flexibility as regards the design and extension capability of the machine. It also enables automation, identification and inspection solutions to be integrated flexibly into the machine.


    Energy-efficient servo drives provide great precision in the transporting of the film and in the lifting units. A chain guide on one side (option) ensures that there is the best possible usage of packaging materials.
