Universal 8 (U8M) Medical Heat Seal Machine

8 Station Modular Blister Sealing Machine


The U8M is designed for a broad range of applications for the medical device, pharmaceutical and related industries. The U8M can be used for carded pill packs, clinical trial, unit dose, foil lids, specialty films, conventional carded blister packs and custom sealing.

Providing the flexibility that optimizes performance and investment cost. Our unique modular design allows for multiple machine configurations, alterations and expansions based upon your unique needs and growth. Servo operated modules allow for “plug and run” reconfiguration without requiring any change to the other modular units.
