Validatable rotary sealers with touch screen.

hm 3010 DC-V/DC-VI | hm 3020 DC-V

The rotary sealers hm 3010 DC-V, hm 3020 DC-V and hm 3010 DC-VI are distinguished by the ease with which you can navigate your way around the menu and enter data via the colour touchscreen or hs 3000 PC-PT software. Alternatively, the systems can also be programmed and operated easily via a barcode scanner (hawo IntelligentScan).

The data is printed directly onto the packaging, either in one line (hm 3010) or in two lines (hm 3020). The font size automatically adjusts itself to the film width (FontMatic).

 

 
  • Validatable process in accordance with ISO 11607-2
  • Interfaces for external tracking systems (e.g. ProDoc) and for most batch documentation systems (with USB, Ethernet and RS 232)
  • Energy-saving thanks to permanently heated sealing system and automatic stand-by function to shut off the motor when not in use
  • ValiUp: tool for determining the optimum sealing temperature
  • Integrated Printer with FontMatic

    FUNCTIONALITY.

    These rotary sealers are distinguished by the ease with which you can navigate your way around the menu and enter data via the colour touchscreen or hs 3000 PC-PT software. Alternatively the systems can be programmed and operated easily via barcode scanner (hawo IntelligentScan).

    During the sealing process, the critical parameters sealing temperature, contact pressure and sealing speed (dwell) are automatically monitored. If one of the parameters deviates from preset values, the devices warn the user acoustically and stop the sealing process. The hm 3010 DC-V / hm 3020 DC-V / hm 3010 DC-VI rotary sealers possess various PC interfaces (RS232, USB and Ethernet) for process and batch documentation. The hawo rotary sealing devices guarantee efficient and reproducible packing, especially for large volumes of instruments.

    Easy handling via touch screen.

    INTEGRATED PRINTER.

    The hm 3010 DC-V, hm 3020 DC-V and hm 3010 DC-VI have an integrated printer. They can print all normatively requested information directly onto the packaging during the sealing process (symbols according to EN 980). Thanks to the patented FontMatic technology the rotary sealers automatically recognise the width of the sealing material and adjusts the font size to the available space. Printing over the edges is a thing of the past.

     
  •  

    FLEXIBILITY.

    The SealPeak sealing system accommodates every material – even gusseted pouches and reels. Therefore a flawless, full-area sealing seam can also be achieved with materials of varying thickness. The unique design of the SealPeak-sealing seam guarantees an optimal sealing safety and seal seam strength.

     
  •  

    ERGONOMICS AND MAINTENANCE.

    Work processes in the preparation of instruments should be as simple and comfortable as possible. That is why the unit is designed for the ideal utilization of the work area. Maintenance is reduced to a minimum; worn parts are easily replaceable. The ink ribbon change is simply carried out from the front of the device.

     
  •  

    DOCUMENTATION SOFTWARE.

    The machines can be equipped with the hawo ProDoc software for legally secure recording of the welding process.

Validation

  • Safe packaging.

    The correct reprocessing process of medical devices consists of the steps of washing & disinfection, packaging and sterilisation. The instruments can only be called sterilised when they are packaged before the sterilisation. The single-use (!) packaging, made from laminated poly film and a porous material (Tyvek® or medical grade paper) is permeable for the sterilisation medium (e.g. steam, plasma, Formaldehyde FO or Ethylenoxide ETO), but not for bacteria or microorganisms. Only by following this reprocessing sequence and by using professional heat sealers to seal the instruments as well as professional packaging material can the sterility up to the point of use as well as the aseptic presentation of the instrument be guaranteed.

    Medical devices delivered in a sterile state should be packed to ensure that they remain sterile until the point of use. The validation of packaging processes is crucial to ensure that sterile barrier system integrity is attained and will remain so until opened by the users.

    The international packaging standard ISO 11607-2 as well as the Technical Specification draft ISO/DTS 16775 explain how packaging processes should be validated. The international packaging validation guideline gives guidance how to validate packaging processes. During the validation of the heat sealing process the optimum sealing temperature of the packaging materials used has to be evaluated and established. At this temperature, the process then has to deliver optimum seal seams that are strong enough and peelable.

    Professional heat sealing equipment for closing sealable pouches and reels (preformed sterile barrier systems) are essential for this. hawo therefore offers sealing devices whose processes can be validated according to ISO 11607-2, the Technical Specification draft ISO/DTS 167751 and in harmony with the international packaging validation guideline. The models marked with ‘V’ feature an integrated function for regulating and monitoring process parameters – the ‘V’ is the key! Sealing devices from hawo therefore guarantee efficient and reproducible packing, even for large volumes of instruments.

     

    Definition:

    • IQ Installation Qualification:essential information is checked according to a checklist (e.g. the sealing device is compliant to ISO 11607-2)
    • OQ Operational Qualification: the optimal sealing temperature has to be established
    • PQ Performance Qualification: determination of the seal strength at the optimal sealing temperature determined in the OQ (after sterilisation)
