“The Eagle” Offers Quality, Precision & Performance in a Compact Footprint
Quincy, MA – Maruho Hatsujyo Innovations (MHI) – the U.S. subsidiary of Kyoto-based Maruho Hatsujyo Kogyo (“MHK”), Japan’s second largest pharmaceutical packaging machinery manufacturer with over 60 years of experience – will introduce a new blister machine to the U.S. market at Pharma Expo Booth W-960, November 6-9 in Chicago. The Eagle, an Americanized version of MHK’s widely successful PF-D1S, is a compact, servo-driven, high performance machine that is the company’s first foray into the North American marketplace.
Capable of handling all commonly used forming and lidding materials, the competitively priced Eagle can produce up to 100 blisters per minute at a maximum index length of 90mm and maximum index width of 130mm. The machine features fast, tool-free changeover in less than 10 minutes, offers multi-zone pre-heating, recipe-driven format change, and is compatible with third-party feeders.
Featuring both platen forming and rotary sealing, the new Eagle blister machine promises to stand up well in the U.S. market. The machine’s attractive attributes include ease of operation, user-friendly HMI, and easy expansion of feeder area when required. MHI also stresses its responsiveness and commitment to product support, providing U.S.-based installation, maintenance, spare parts and 24/7 technical support.
The company enjoys an exemplary reputation in Japan, where it has nearly 400 blister machines installed spanning several leading pharmaceutical companies.
“We designed the Eagle to meet the specific needs of U.S. customers and are confident it will match or exceed the performance and quality to which they are accustomed,” said Gregory Zaic, President and CEO of MHI. “We believe customers will quickly come to appreciate why MHK is one of the leading suppliers of pharmaceutical packaging machinery in Japan, where the company has a reputation for successfully producing products with a legacy of reliability, precision, and performance.”
