Needs and objectives

CKD’s need was to adopt a complete and integrated packaging solution, able to offer maximum production capacity and maximum flexibility in the number of sticks for each carton. All in compliance with the needs of the pharmaceutical market and in compliance with the regulations of the pharma industry.

The solution proposed by MF PACKAGING

To meet the customer’s request, MF Packaging proposed the complete ISTICK packaging line.

Used in various product sectors, this machine packs cartons containing a certain number of stick packs already counted and inserted, arranged both in an orderly and disorderly manner.

The different dosing systems allow you to package any type of product: granular and powder, liquid and pasty.
