A leading pharmaceutical company has once again demonstrated its confidence in Mosca strapping technology by purchasing two of the company’s new state-of-the-art Evolution SoniXs TR-6 machines. Phoenix Healthcare, which distributes pharmaceuticals to GPs, hospitals and pharmacies, is using the machines to strap plastic tote boxes for distribution from the warehouse at the Runcorn factory site.
The Mosca Evolution SoniXs TR-6 machines join a number of other Mosca strapping machines already installed at Phoenix Healthcare’s 14 locations around the UK. These help Phoenix maintain high productivity levels, because of the superior quality, reliability and comprehensive service support on offer from Mosca.
The Evolution SoniXs TR-6 is a fully-automatic strapping machine that is particularly well-suited to tote strapping at the Phoenix Healthcare site thanks to its speed and precision.
The TR-6 uses Mosca’s market-leading patented ultrasonic sealing system, SoniXs, to produce a consistent seal that is far stronger and more tear-resistant than traditional heat seal methods and makes it ideal for the pharmaceutical industry where security considerations are paramount. In addition, a SoniXs seal leaves a distinctive imprint the on the strap weld which works as a further deterrent against tampering and theft, as it is unique to an ultrasonic weld.
Other benefits of the Mosca Evolution SoniXs TR-6 include an electronic calibration feature, which enables straightforward integration into most production lines. Easy accessibility and tool-free disassembly of the strap way components ensure simple maintenance and troubleshooting while the digital display on its control panel, with selector switch for single, double, or multiple strapping, guarantees easy and straightforward operation. In addition, the machinery offers extremely low energy consumption and comes with a CE marking and conformity declaration as standard.
As well as the high-performance benefits of the machine, Mosca Direct’s ongoing customer support remains a key factor in its continuing relationship with Phoenix Healthcare. This was highlighted by a post-installation survey, where Mosca scored 10/10 for quality of work, attitude, efficiency and punctuality of engineers and for communication before, during, and after the sales process.
“I am very happy to use Mosca as the customer service is brilliant and, more importantly, I know I can rely on the machines we have installed in our depots, especially our TR-6 SoniXs strapping machines,” says Tom Barnes, Central Technical Development Manager at Phoenix Healthcare. “Thanks to the excellent service they provide, I can say I will be happy working with Mosca for the foreseeable future.”
Phoenix Pharmaceutical Group is among the top five pharmaceutical wholesalers in the world, operating exclusively throughout Europe and with headquarters in Germany.
Mosca’s strapping machine portfolio ranges from semi-automatic machines to fully-automated high-speed systems based on a modular design to fit easily into existing lines or as part of a new project. The top of the range German designed and manufactured machines and systems and are available in the UK from the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Mosca Direct Ltd of Cotgrave, Nottingham. Mosca also produces and supplies high quality PP and PET plastic strap for use on its machines.
