Eagle-Omni, US subsidiary of Japanese company Maruho, introduced its blister machine for rapid packaging operations.

The Eagle-Omni was designed to handle a range of materials for forming and lidding, with the ability to produce up to 20 blisters per minute for the packaging of solids, powders, liquids, or devices.

Maruho, a Japanese healthcare company, introduced the packaging machine for its cost-effective capabilities. Eagle-Omni can operate in a manual or fully automated fashion, with the ability to go from development to production.

In a statement, chief operating officer for Maruho, Tim Saarinen said, “the Eagle-Omni allows new packages to be tested for barrier, stability, and durability while having approved packages available for consumer marketing evaluation. Previously, lead times were measured in weeks, and prototyping was often prohibitively expensive.”

The machine is capable of prototyping, recipe-driven format changes, changeover, and various feeding solutions.

Additionally, Maruho has other machines within its Eagle blister machine series. This series includes, Eagle-Uni designed for lab work, Eagle-pro for the first production level, Eagle-Rx for rapid production, and Eagle-Max capable of producing up to 600 blisters a minute.
