Sanner GmbH: Desiccant integration
Products focused on pharmaceutical, medical, and healthcare applications.
Sanner GmbH focuses on the pharmaceutical, medical technology, and healthcare industries. This includes the expansion of the six product categories and the expertise for customized solutions during Pharmapack Europe 2014 in Paris.
In the effervescent packaging category, Sanner presents new design concepts for tube packaging of effervescent tablets. The company further emphasizes its position in test strip packaging. The pharmaceutical and medical packaging section highlights options for packaging development made possible by Sanner’s structured in-house engineering process.
Sanner also presents eye care products and ready-to-fill syringes, while the main focus of Sanner’s booth is on pharmaceutical desiccant packaging. In this segment, Sanner introduces product solutions for capsules, sachets, and tablet packaging. Pharmaceutical desiccant packaging, test strip packaging, and effervescent packaging all have one thing in common: desiccant integration.
The optimum coordination of closures and tubes or containers ensures that Sanner’s complete packaging offerings achieve an high density. To maximize product shelf life and enable usage in different climate zones, Sanner integrates the exact amount of required desiccant. This reduces weight and lowers costs and achieves positive results regarding sustainable material usage. The desiccant is either integrated into the closure or attached to the bottom of the package, thus meeting the key criteria of pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Exemplary solutions demonstrate how modern and user-friendly packaging can be manufactured with fewer single components. At the same time, the packaging can easily be introduced into the filling process prior to closing, resealing, and convenient repacking. Thus Sanner packaging solutions support simple and fast processes and reduce production costs.
Sanner also provides in-house engineering—from the initial design draft, 3D modeling, and mold design to optimal production technology—and advanced material expertise.
OTC products should be visually appealing, lightweight, compact, and easy to use. They should stand out from competitors at the point-of-sale and be easily positioned on the shelf. At best, the medical packaging can be intuitively opened and reclosed. It should also have a tamper-evident seal and an integrated child-resistant function.
