FormFoil Lite Suture Package from Rollprint Packaging Products

Describe your new product.

The FormFoil Lite Suture Package is a breakthrough in cold-form foil technology. For the first time, a 0.001-inch aluminum foil structure is able to effectively replace the traditional 0.002-inch aluminum foil composite for demanding suture packages without sacrificing formability and performance. Coupled with AllegroB peelable sealant, the end result is a material that maintains robust formability, reduces consumption of natural resources, provides significant reduction in costs and enhances the user experience.

How does the innovation work?

Surgical sutures are packaged in a three-dimensional aluminum-foil based structure that has demanding requirements. The steep draft angle of the formed bottom is challenging to achieve without initiating cracking, delamination or pinholes in the foil layer. Because the tensile properties of absorbable sutures will degrade when exposed to moisture vapor, any potential loss of barrier is unacceptable. To complicate this further, some grades of sutures are packaged in alcohol. The finished package must be able to hold the alcohol while still allowing a peelable seal.

The industry standard sutures package is a polyester/0.001-inch aluminum foil/copolymer sealant for the top web and a 0.0006-inch oriented nylon/0.002-inch aluminum foil/ copolymer sealant for the cold-formed-foil bottom web. This new suture package structure consists of a top web of polyester/0.00035 aluminum foil/AllegroB sealed to a pressure-formed bottom web of 0.0006-inch oriented nylon/0.001-inch aluminum foil/copolymer.

FormFoil Lite offers two distinct advantages over this traditional suture package (as experienced by the company’s customer Surgical Specialties). For the first time, a 0.001-inch foil layer has been used to create the formed bottom instead of the typical 0.002-inch aluminum foil layer, allowing the aluminum foil thickness to be cut in half without sacrificing forming depth and draft angle and with no degradation in performance. This has allowed our suture customer to meet both cost savings goals and sustainability goals.

The FormFoil Lite Suture Package is designed to be peeled open. Because alcohol is difficult to hold, particularly in a peelable structure, the traditional approach has been to accomplish the peel via delamination. This results in variability in peel strength and no consistent witness mark. With FormFoil Lite, AllegroB has replaced the copolymer in the top web, providing a true peelable seal while still holding the alcohol. Because AllegroB provides a cohesive peel, the seal strength is consistent, making it easy to validate and providing consistent performance to users. In addition, it presents a bright white seal indicator (that is, a witness mark) when peeled to easily confirm a hermetic seal.

The impact of FormFoil Lite extends beyond suture packaging. Due to the reduced cost of FormFoil Lite versus standard formable foils, it’s now possible for cold-form foil package designs to be competitive with other traditional package formats. Using the size of the suture package as an example, the reduced formable package cost of FormFoil Lite package offers a 25% savings over a 2D in-line pouch option and 21% savings over a flow-wrapped option. Additional carbon footprint and shipping savings flow down through the supply stream due to the smaller footprint of a 3D-formable foil package.

How does your innovation add value?

For the first time, a cost-effective version of an aluminum foil structure that has been downgauged by 50% still maintains formability and barrier needed to hold and protect sutures. At the same time, the aluminum foil in the peelable top web was reduced by 65% without sacrificing performance. This technology advancement not only provides cost savings but compounded sustainability benefits. In addition, user experience is enhanced through a high performance peelable sealant capable of holding alcohol.

What distinguishes your packaging product or service from those of competitors and what makes it unique in the market?

Future conservation prospects for FormFoil Lite are limitless. By moving from 0.002-inch aluminum foil to 0.001-inch foil, the costs are in line with the traditional packaging materials used in pouch and flow-wrap applications. Traditional forming foil constructions were generally cost prohibitive. This cost reduction coupled with material footprint reduction savings of 35% over a 2D in-line pouch option and 31% savings over a flow-wrap option for the same size product will make it much easier for companies to meet their sustainable packaging initiatives.

• A modular design, which allows for quick installation or relocation, and simple maintenance.

How does the innovation work?

The new checkweigher gives end users the ability to increase quality and significantly reduce overall production costs within their operations by minimizing the giveaway of materials above predetermined weights, as well as ensuring compliance by identifying products that are underweight.

“A&D Inspection was able to leverage its proprietary digital signal processing technology (DSP) from our Automotive and other instrumentation groups, and implement those core technologies into our flagship product solutions,” says Terry Duesterhoeft, president/CEO of A&D Americas.  “The result has been a new in-motion checkweighing solution that allows our customers to achieve unprecedented quality, affordability, performance and flexibility.”

“With the AD-4961, we are redefining checkweighing by providing technology that achieves or exceeds the results of much more costly equipment,” says Daniel Cannistraci, product manager for A&D Inspection. “We are giving companies a new way to manage their production line processes, especially when it comes to quality assurance and critical control point issues.”

In all, the AD-4961 Checkweigher has four main units, including an in-feed conveyor, a weighing conveyer, a control unit and a base unit. The system also offers a variety of reject options, adding to its versatility. Users also do not need to wait for a service engineer to respond to a system shutdown, as they are able to replace any unresponsive modules and significantly reduce potential downtime.

“This new modular design allows us to serve end users across many different industries, including personal care and cosmetics, food and beverage, machine parts manufacturing and many others,” says Cannistraci.  

How does your innovation add value?

According to the Frost & Sullivan report, A&D Weighing stands out for these visionary innovations. It not only updates features and adds options, but also focuses on critical aspects of the user interface and user experience.

A&D Inspection is also among the few equipment vendors that have enough inventory to guarantee delivery within a week, instead of the usual six weeks.

Another important advantage of A&D’s product lines is its software-based equipment. Hardware is often the most expensive component of weighing equipment, which means that maintenance, repairs, calibrations and replacements will be expensive and time consuming. A&D leverages its deep experience in digital signal processing to keep the hardware simple.

With this product line, A&D has targeted specific market segments such as the food and beverage industry, agriculture and fresh food processors. It has penetrated new segments, such as automotive and medical device manufacturing, where precision weighing is required to affordably produce precision auto parts or disposable medical devices.

Furthermore, it has extended its reach to custom packaging and tapped a range of unusual customer segments, such as companies that make commemorative, precious metal coins.

What distinguishes your packaging product or service from those of competitors and what makes it unique in the market?

Based on its recent analysis of the weighing equipment market, Frost & Sullivan recognized A&D Weighing with the 2016 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership.

According to Frost & Sullivan, A&D Weighing has emerged as a leading competitor in the North American weighing equipment market based on the strength of its innovative strategy of cost-effective pricing and modular construction for a simple fit into a range of applications. The company also continuously introduces new product lines, ensures rapid delivery, and facilitates quick and easy maintenance and repair of its products.

“The most significant differentiator of A&D Weighing is the high quality of its products. Its microbalances, analytical, and precision balances, as well as industrial bench scales have set benchmarks in quality and often last much longer than rival devices,” says Frost & Sullivan research director Kiran Unni. “Underscoring its commitment to quality, the company also offers a five-year warranty on most of its balances and scales, which is uncommon in this market.”
