Brentwood Chooses SencorpWhite ULTRA Thermoformer to Revolutionize Medical Packaging Industry

Custom-designed SencorpWhite solution is the largest form and trim press ever built

HYANNIS, Mass., Jan. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- SencorpWhite announced today that Brentwood is now using a custom-designed SencorpWhite ULTRA thermoformer to provide new solutions to the medical packaging industry. One application where this system is already being used is for catheter packaging, an area where Brentwood has long led the way in innovation; in the late 70s, Brentwood developed a new standard for catheter packaging by recognizing that small packages reduced their effectiveness and built a machine to produce the first long trays. Now, with the new SencorpWhite solution, Brentwood has further extended its capabilities to produce parts at an industry-leading 72" long inline.  

This new system is the largest form and trim press ever built, with platens that can produce parts up to 72" long x 34" wide, with a 7" stroke. In addition, the custom-designed ULTRA includes several innovative features designed to improve efficiency and throughput:

  • A closed-loop, 7-zone inline infrared sheet-temperature-sensing system that constantly monitors sheet temperature to ensure accurate, efficient and repeatable production parts.
  • Servo-driven presses that provide precise movements with increased speed.
  • Forming parameters are fully controlled through the built-in HMI with high-low warnings as an advanced quality measure.
  • A robotic pick-and place-system that allows the machine to automatically remove, stack, and pack product, minimizing cycle time and maximizing throughput.

"The capabilities of our new ULTRA have enabled us to pursue new opportunities and provide our customers with the most cost-competitive solutions in the medical packaging industry," said Andrew Haus, Medical Product Line Manager at Brentwood.

"We are very excited to work with forward-thinking companies like Brentwood, who understand it's a strategic imperative to modernize packaging technologies," said Bob Mozian, Vice President of Sencorp Sales. "Our recent acquisition by Connell Limited Partnership has given us a renewed focus on R&D to make projects like this possible."

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
