Blow Fill Seal



Blow-Fill-Seal technology refers to the manufacturing technique used to produce small, (0.1mL) and large volume, (500mL +) liquid filled containers. Blow-Fill-Seal technology was originally developed in Europe in the 1930s and was introduced in the United States in the 1960s, but over the last 20 years it has become more prevalent within the pharmaceutical industry, and it is now widely considered to be the superior form of aseptic processing by various medicine regulatory agencies including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the packaging of pharmaceutical and healthcare products.

The highly specialised knowledge necessary in the design and manufacture of this intricate mould tooling exists at N.A.B. Experience gained over many years places our company in a unique position in Britain, and has brought increasing opportunities overseas in this field. So if your requirements are new tooling or refurbishment and repair of existing equipment we can help.

We have produced tooling for Rommelag® (302, 305, 3012 & 360), Brevetti Angela (Syfpac) and ACEP-TECH® machines.

Using Delcam’s PowerSHAPE CAD software we are capable of designs from concept (as shown above) through to mould manufacture with PowerMILL and MasterCAM. Should you need to see your product prior to making the commitment to mould purchase we can provide SLA/SLS models in high resolution which will include everything you see on the CAD model.

Above is a mould for a Singapore customer prior to shipment. The mould was originally manufactured by Rommelag and has been modified to improve the look of the bottle in the neck area. Whilst it was at our factory it also underwent a minor refurbishment.
