Case Study – Combino Pharm Malta Ltd

Combino Pharm Malta logo

Combino Pharm was launched in 1996, with the aim of providing people with high-quality generic drugs and working towards the rationalization of pharmaceutical expenditure.

Location: Halfar, Malta

The Challenge:

In 2013 Combino Pharm Malta contacted Universal looking for a flexible cap tightening solution for their bottling area at the Malta production plant.

Combino Pharm required a cap tightening machine for pharmaceutical bottles with pre-threaded screw caps at speeds up to 25 bottles per minute. The product range was expanding and they wanted a machine which would accommodate different bottles and closures in the future.

Products to fill:

  • Pharmaceutical Products
  • Medicine
  • Paracetamol

The Solution:

To achieve 25 bottles per minute, Universal proposed the Posicap in-line automatic cap tightening machine.  This versatile automatic cap tightening machine can handle a wide range of bottle sizes and cap diameters.  Using an in-line gating system, different bottle and cap changeovers are simple and do not require expensive change parts that are associated with star wheels systems. The machine also has the benefit of future expandability and can be upgraded to a twin head system if faster production speeds are required.

Other alternatives:

For lower speeds Universal offers manual and semi-automatic cap tightening solutions.  We can also provide high speed capping solutions for projects requiring 60 bottles per minute plus.

Since purchasing the machine in 2013 we have added further products to our range. Universal have provided bottle clamp change parts and capping jaw change parts quickly and efficiently. The Customer Service and aftersales service provided by the team has been excellent and we would have no hesitation recommending their services.
