Sigpack Systems offers customized machines and packaging systems, from the filling equipment and product feeding modules right up to multi-unit packing, for all production and output requirements.

In today’s ever-changing packaging technology market, Sigpack Systems offers an unbeatable range of solutions, to the benefit of both the customer and the consumer. The technological advancements of the past few years in the construction of machines and systems, in product handling, in packaging material technology as well as in the field of service have been fully taken on board.

Within the pharmaceutical industry all batch codes and expiration dates need to be verified. To ensure this, Sigpack Systems uses a vision system to verify the print on the individually wrapped blisters and to keep a log of this process for traceability purposes. Any incorrect data is detected and triggers the rejection of the product, saving time and costs by reducing machinery down time and waste.
Sigpack Systems plays a key role in supporting its customers and thereby helps keep the supply chain reliable and secure. Jose Carrasquillo believes that “the reason for any client, like me, to choose a company like Sigpack Systems is not just for the main equipment, in this case the wrapper, but to integrate all the ancillary equipment into a single system and take responsibility for the performance of the whole line.”
