“We are very excited about returning to China-Pharm with such a strong portfolio,” said Nicola Vella, Dividella’s sales director for China, who will lead the Dividella show team at Shenzhen, along with Mr. Zan Than.
Mr. Vella says his team will be able to show how the new NT x system could reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and Total Cost of Package (TCP) to industry-leading levels in the 1 to 500 objects-per-minute capacity range.
“When our visitors see how this technology works in synergy, we are confident they will understand why Dividella really has become a one stop shop for anyone seeking a sustainable, low cost cartoning system for parenteral products,” said Mr. Vella.
“We are proud to be able to put on such an exciting show to mark the [2nd] anniversary of our first appearance at China-Pharm,” he added.
NeoTOP machinery provides the power enabling the world award-winning 10-count flu vaccine prefilled syringe carton that Dividella will also showcase in Shenzhen. Co-designed with Sanofi Pasteur, the package won the bronze award in the Sustainability section of the WorldStar Medical & Pharmaceutical awards, judged at interpack 2014 in Düsseldorf in May.
The 10-count carton features 100 per cent recyclable paperboard, eliminating pre-made plastics. This has saved client Sanofi Pasteur more than $1m annually. Additionally, halving pack volume has led to corresponding savings in cold-chain shipping and storage costs, while the NeoTOP 804 has quadrupled output to 80 cartons/800 syringes per minute, doubling Overall Equipment Effectiveness to more than 70 per cent.
