Stora Enso presents a board selection hand-picked for pharmaceutical packaging

The renewable materials company Stora Enso is a leading supplier of renewable packaging board for pharmaceutical cartons. At Pharmapack 2016, the company will present its board selection, which includes grades tailored for various sub-segments such as medicine, OTC (Over-The-Counter) and generic drugs.

“We work closely with industry-leading partners to develop our offering. When it comes to packaging lines, Uhlmann in Germany is an important partner with whom we have tested and optimised the efficiency of our Tambrite board on high-speed carton manufacturing and filling lines. The first tests were made two years ago at a speed of 300 packs per minute, but the latest generation runs as much as 500 packs per minute, which clearly makes Tambrite the output efficiency leader in folding boxboard,” says Wilfried Schmahl, Segment Sales Director at the Stora Enso Consumer Board division.

Tambrite is a blockbuster in prescription medicine packaging due to its technical properties and high performance in laser coding, inkjet coding and braille embossing. Stora Enso’s choice in OTC pharmaceutical cartons is Performa Bright, which offers the ideal visual appearance for product marketing. Tamfold is a cost-effective material option for packaging generic drugs.

Intelligent and convenient packaging solutions enabling connectivity, user engagement and traceability and safety coding systems are also on Stora Enso’s agenda, developed together with partners in laser and ink jet coding, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) and NFC (Near Field Communication).
