Over the last 12 months the world has been dramatically changed as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The urgency of developing an effective vaccine has been a priority for many countries, health organisations and pharmaceutical companies including Astra Zeneca, Pfizer, Moderna and CSL.
The packaging of pharmaceuticals in bottles/ vials requires appropriate change parts such as star-wheels, scrolls, wear guides, conveyor curves, slats, rail protectors, machine guards, which allow the flow of the containers in the manufacturing line rapidly and safely.
Allplastics Engineering has been providing custom machined wear parts for the packaging, food and pharmaceutical industries for more than 40 years.
Some of the materials utilised in the industry include UHMWPE, High density polyethylene, Acetal, Nylon and Polycarbonate for machine guards.
Allplastics Engineering specializes in the replacement of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts for the packaging industry and can reverse engineer those plastic components to suit your specific requirements.
Engineered plastic Star Wheels provide wear resistance, ease of machining, resistance to cleaners, oils and greases. They are lighter in weight than metal star wheels and have a lower coefficient of friction. Plastic star wheels and wear parts are less likely to damage packaging or product as they promote the movements along the conveyor line.
Let us play our part in overcoming the pandemic!
