Omni FS

Flexible: Lab machine for blister packaging (semi-automatic)


The Omni FS is a lab machine for forming, filling, sealing, cutting and punching primary packaging materials such as blister sheets. Its modular design provides space for up to four work stations. All stations can be operated individually or in parallel. Different semi-automatic dosing systems make it possible to fill powder and liquid.

  • Precise dosing systems for liquid and/or powder filling
  • Flexible production of powder blisters and discs
  • Customized design of product carriers
Lab machine for filling blisters with powder or liquid

The semi-automatic Omni FS forming, sealing and punching machine consists of freely selectable stations and can be expanded at any time.

Machine features

Tiny cavities are created in the blister film through thermal forming or cold forming, which are then filled with active inhaler ingredient in powder form.

Forming blisters

Minimum quantities of active-ingredient powder are dosed into blister cavities for dry powder inhalers. Plastic forming of these tiny cavities is achieved through thermal forming (PE film) or cold forming (aluminum film).

Micro-dosing is applied to fill blister cavities with active ingredients.

Filling blisters

The powder filling module can be optionally equipped with a drum filler or with a diaphragm filler. For roller dosing, the cavities are partially filled, for diaphragm dosing, the blister cups are filled up to 100%.

Sealed blister strips are closed in the sealing process.

Closing blisters

Filled blisters are closed with covering or forming film. The sealing tools used can be configured by adjusting pressure, temperature and time separately for each material.

Dishwasher tabs and laundry detergent are filled in special web processing machines creating portion packs.

Portion packs

The production of portion packs is made up of several processes; starting with the deep drawing of the portion chambers to filling them with powder or liquid and to then finally sealing with cover film and cutting/punching process. Harro Höfliger offers process-reliable solutions for this, from the lab unit to the high performance machine.
