Today’s pharmacy companies are very expanded. There’s no surprise that producers invent more and more sophisticated machines to enhance a method of pills production.
One of the most prominent example of development in medicine industry is tablet packing. Nowadays most of the work is done by packing machines.
What kind of tablet packings do we have?
The most common type of pill packing today is blister. It consists of two types of foil, often plastic ones. There are several materials that producers use to make blisters: PVC, PVDC or Aluminium. Each of the material is different when it comes about wetness resistance. The better protection foil provides, the higher funds it requires. In consequence, the cost of medicine itself will be little overpriced but it’s worth it. But the most important thing is that every polymer foil secures tablets from losing its crucial attributes.
There are a few defferent ways of tablet packing. It is also common that pills are packed in one general plastic box. Patient choose one of the pill from packaging without breaking a foil each time. It is cheaper solution but not very safe.
