Pharmaceutical Processing/Packaging

Drug makers need specialized equipment and machines to meet regulatory standards and high speed operating environments. Frequent sanitizing using cold and warm water in combination with detergents and other harsh chemical cleaners such as nitric acid or hydrogen peroxide based ones, is the norm in the industry today. Plastic materials easily fit into self-lubricating designs. Scaling up for big parts in no problem, with plastic's relatively low weight giving it an advantage over other materials.

In today's competitive pharmaceutical industry, drug production and packaging lines are becoming faster and more efficient. This high-speed processing generates more wear, heat and noise. Parts must also withstand rigorous cleaning and sanitizing procedures.

The result is less down time, improved performance and cost savings. Plastic solutions for the pharmaceutical industry comply with North American and European regulations. Materials meet the highest USP or FDA standards when required.
