Rollprint invests $1.25 million in new pouch line

Rollprint Packaging Products, Inc. has announced a $1.25 million investment on a new multi-configuration pouch manufacturing line for sterile medical applications; installation is expected by the end of the year.

Rollprint has purchased a state-of-the-art Ritemed 900 CHB machine from Water Line, Mezzovico, Switzerland, which will be installed in its Addison, IL cleanroom.

“We received overwhelming response from medical device manufacturers soon after we announced construction on our new cleanroom early last year.  Our new manufacturing capability has driven demand for additional production capacity, so we are once again making a sizeable investment,” said Doug Dodrill, vice president of technology, Rollprint.

Rollprint’s ISO Class 8, 6,000 sq. ft. cleanroom has been operational since last fall and already houses five production lines capable of producing a variety of sterile medical pouch structures for which Rollprint is known.  This includes traditional and barrier header bags, chevron, vented, three-side weld seals, corner peels, etc.  Once the new Ritemed unit is installed, overall production is expected to increase as much as 25%, due to the speed and output capability of the new machine.
