Liquid Packaging Containers For Animal Care

 

The importance of each and every one of the animals in our lives is significant. This means caring for animals in much the same way that we care for ourselves, including veterinary healthcare. To ensure safety, liquid packaging containers for veterinary medication must be closely attended to and treated as carefully as pharmaceutical packaging.

LF of America is proud to be the premier choice in the contract packaging industry, including veterinary contract packaging for products intended for pets, livestock, equine, cattle, and other animal health. All of our available liquid packaging containers for veterinary medicine are designed to ensure maximum safety for the sake of the animal’s health and safety.

The animal prescriptions in veterinary healthcare must be filled and sealed in liquid packaging containers that meet the strict cGMP guidelines and regulations put in place. Learn more about some of the different types of plastic containers suited for veterinary medicine in the article below.

If you are interested in inquiring about the elite veterinary contract packaging solution, click here to read about our featured automatic filling machine for plastic containers.

Types Of Liquid Packaging Containers For Veterinary Use

Veterinarians and animal owners alike understand the varying factors that can make administering animal medication difficult. Though most animal prescriptions have the intended purpose of preventing disease or treating infections, there are plenty of other animal products that help pets in countless ways.

What this leads to is a diverse collection of liquid packaging containers that are uniquely suited to fulfill an intended purpose. For instance, unit dose packaging in veterinary medication makes it simple for someone to administer a pre-filled single dose of liquid medication without the need to measure out the right amount.

It’s also true that many types of veterinary medication require the veterinarian to be able to operate and administer it using only one hand. To address these challenging issues, LF of America provides a full catalog of different liquid packaging containers available in all kinds of colors, shapes, sizes, and designs.

Some packaging examples of animal products and veterinary medication include the following:

  • Eye Care (drops, tear stain removal)
  • Ear Care (cleaner, deodorizer)
  • Flea & Tick Treatment
  • Livestock Treatment
  • Oral / Gum Care
  • Single Dose Medicine
  • Wound Care

Labelling Systems: When is an Accessory a Necessity?

Labelling Systems: When is an Accessory a Necessity?

 

In its simplest format, a labelling system applies a label securely to a product or container; everyone understands this straightforward concept.

For example, in the food industry it could be a label that combines nutritional information with cosmetic appeal and branding to a can of beans. The label will include batch specific information such as ‘best before’ and ‘use-by’ date. It’s important the correct label is applied to the product and in such a way as to be readable and look good i.e. not skewed or creased.

 

In the pharmaceutical sector, the application of labels to products is more regulated. Apply the wrong label and a product might cause considerable harm or even death to the person mistakenly taking it. There can also be a lot of information to be included on a label for a pharmaceutical product yet the actual container is often small, resulting in a variety of different label types being used such as leaflet labels and hanging labels.

Lastly, labels for a single product will require different information, from a code per batch through to individual identification for each and every label; in many cases that information needs to be validated. The wrong information on the label can be a costly mistake and could be highly dangerous to consumers. It’s important that any labelling system is easy to use, reliable and ensures highquality application of labels.

However, where identification of a label is critical to an industry, as in the case of the pharmaceutical sector, then a basic labelling machine is not enough; system accessories will be required to meet the needs of that industry and its stringent regulations. ‘Accessories’ is almost a misleading term – these system add ons are often 100% essential – but I refer to them as such as these are selected in each case based on application requirements and customer preference. In such instances accessories aren’t there to ‘promote and decorate’ a container, but provide the critical identification of the contents of that container.

There are many labelling system accessories readily available that will enable you to comply with regulations and standards, provide security/validation throughout the labelling process and increase line efficiency. Which are suitable very much depends on the specific requirements of the application and the degree of automation required, so here I will look at the accessories that are available to meet these needs.

Not all labelling system manufacturers have the experience or skill set to help select and integrate these types of accessories. Newman Labelling Systems has extensive experience here. For example, we have been incorporating Vision Systems into our labelling machine for more than 25 years so we fully understand the strengths and weaknesses of these types of systems. Such manufacturers not only provide quality labelling systems, but also an added value service by recommending suitable accessories to meet needs and budget, whilst steering you clear of those that do not.

Call 800-829-5741 to inquire about our labelling accessories that might be essential for your production line.

Introducing LRP-30, the new leak detection machine for monoblock aerosol cans

After the development of the LRP-20, a leak testing machine for aluminum tubes, the collaboration between Sprimag, a world leader in industrial painting equipment, and Bonfiglioli Engineering S.r.l., the Italian-based branch of Packaging Test and Inspection Specialist TASITEST, has led to another excellent result: the LRP-30, a leak testing machine for monobloc aerosol cans that can be integrated into any line system concept thanks to the line-oriented transfer in and out of the machine.

At first glance, the LRP-30 appears to be very similar to the necking machine normally located upstream of the testing process, but, as opposed to machines used to test welded steel cans, the test plate of the LRP-30, which is equipped with 30 testing heads, is supported above a large, horizontal shaft by a two bearing support of the shaft ends. When the system is in operation, the cans are transferred from the outfeed conveyor system of the necking machine to the infeed conveyor system, which has been deliberately kept short and compact. A vacuum transfer starwheel picks up the cans and transfers them directly to one of the 30 testing heads in order to detect holes up to a diameter of 0.04 mm with a high level of reliability. The number of testing heads results in significantly longer testing times and therefore much more precise test results compared to the machine concepts previously used for monobloc aluminum cans. After testing, the cans are transferred directly to the outfeed conveyor system of the testing machine and then on to the downstream packing machine, a palletizer or a robotic packaging solution.

The compact overall design, the optimized width of the machine and the line-oriented transfer in and out of the machine make the LRP-30 able to be integrated into any line system concept.

In addition to optimized floor space requirements, the LRP-30 provides an easy machine handling and a quick size part changing. The entire machine, together with the infeed and outfeed conveyor systems, is driven by a single servo drive, thus avoiding unnecessary complexity and susceptibility to failure.

Other benefits from this sophisticated machine concept are: the possibility to manage the can length adjustment for other can sizes via a single user command on the HMI; the identical system accessibility of the machine corresponding to the upstream necking machine and the downstream packaging machine so that, at the end of the production process, all three machines can be optimally operated by just one person; and the presence of a high-quality, industrial designed machine cabin based on the design of tool manufacturing machines.

You can find more information about the LPR-30 at http://bit.ly/SprimagLRP-30.
