Consistently high packaging quality

With its R 081 thermoforming packaging machine, MULTIVAC offers an entry-level  model for automatically packing small or medium-sized batches in the medical sector  and pharmaceutical industry.


The R 081 is characterised by its process reliability, cleanroom suitability, ease of operation and high level of flexibility. Thanks to its length of approx. 3 metres, it is very compact in its dimensions and therefore also ideal for use in environments with limited space. Its main area of use is packaging sterile medical products in small batch sizes or for test markets.

With a maximum output of 15 cycles per minute, the R 081 is able to run rigid and flexible films as well as Tyvek® and paper-based packaging materials with a total web thickness of up to 400 µm.
It can be equipped with evacuation and gas flushing systems, and can therefore also be used for producing vacuum packs or packs with modified atmosphere and controlled residual oxygen content.

A new feature is the servo-driven 4-post lifting units, which provide a high level of closing force and ensure sealing pressure is distributed evenly. They guarantee a consistently high level of sealing quality and therefore increase the pack security. Thanks to MULTIVAC’s proven slide-in technology for dies, changing the forming and sealing dies is simple, fast and reproducible.

The R 081 is available in different machine widths, enabling the formats to be laid out flexibly. In the case of cut-off lengths between 100 and 200 mm, a maximum forming depth of 60 mm is possible, while a maximum forming depth of 80 mm can be produced with cut-off lengths between 210 and 300 mm.

The equipment options include various printing, labelling and monitoring systems, as well as validation, calibration and solutions for discharging the finished packs.
