At the core of the STRIPFOIL process is the system’s use of a highly specialized adhesive tape.
This has the primary function of stripping the aluminium lidding foil from beneath each pocket on the blister. Hence the STRIPFOIL name.
It also performs the function of drawing each blister in close sequence from the magazine stack, dispensing with the need for any electro-mechanical parts in the feeder design.
This simple, elegant feature removes the potential for technical problems and component failure at this station of the machine. Part of the training protocol concentrates on achieving the most economical usage of tape.
