Folding cartons are favourite packaging solutions in all industries, and for good reasons: they are extremely versatile in form and function, can be designed in creative ways and are ideal carriers of information and advertising. They also protect the contents well and simplify storage and transport. Finally, they are made of cardboard, a sustainable raw material.
The ECMA Code of the European Carton Makers Association defines more than 250 kinds of folding carton. These in turn give rise to an almost unlimited number of possible designs. Faller Packaging has specialised in the design and manufacture of pharmaceutical packaging for many years. Its innovative solutions fully meet the exacting requirements of the industry pertaining to compliance and convenience. Whether you need standard folding cartons, a custom design, cut-to-size blanks or combination products, we can provide expert help all the way from consultation to the final product.
Proper packaging of medical products
Folding cartons are used in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries mainly as outer packaging for solid, liquid and semi-solid medical preparations. They also serve as packaging for medical equipment. Some important types of primary packaging are blister packs, ampoules, vials, pens, bottles, pre-filled syringes, jars, sachets and bags. The pharmaceutical industry places high demands on cardboard packages. The criteria include whiteness, bending rigidity, thickness, creasability and codability. Faller Packaging therefore takes strict care to ensure that all products comply with the German Medicines Act, GMP and FDA specifications, as well as the ECMA Best Practice Guidelines. It has a special department devoted to implementing ideal solutions, even for exceptional challenges.
