hm 5000 DC-VI PrintPak
Printing on the clear side
of sealable packaging is
finally possible

hm 5000 DC-VI PrintPak med

The UDI-ready rotary sealing system hm 5000 DC-VI PrintPak med has been developed for the special requirements of the medical and pharmaceutical industry (LifeScience). 

With PrintPak med you are perfectly prepared for the future of UDI medical device labelling. The unique product identifier (UDI) by means of a numeric or alphanumeric code enables unique identification of medical devices on the market, facilitates their traceability, prevents plagiarism and thus improves overall patient safety. The hm 5000 DC-VI PrintPak med rotary sealer with integrated inkjet print probe combines all UDI-relevant data in a matrix code and prints it directly onto the clear side of the sterile barrier system.

PrintPak med enables flexible data entry by means of keyboard, network, 2 D Scanner, RFID Reader and matrix reader.

    Due to the innovative DocLink communication unit the hm 5000 DC-VI PrintPak med can easily be linked to batch documentation and tracking systems. It is equipped with four USB A and one RS 232 interfaces. An additional Ethernet interface makes the hm 5000 DC-VI PrintPak med network-compatible.



    The hm 5000 DC-VI PrintPak med is equipped with the new hawo TraceLog technology. All actions are recorded and can be viewed if required. If the DataMatic function is activated via a connected USB stick, each action is automatically copied and can then be viewed in a spreadsheet program (e.g. Excel). All data can also be exported via the integrated Ethernet port.


    AppCtrl – TOUCH SCREEN.

    A 7” TFT touch screen and an intelligent controller in connection with the AppCtrl applications allowing to call up device and programming functions, make operation and validation even more comfortable and easy. The main screen can be adapted individually by the user according to his needs. The hm 5000 DC-VI PrintPak med is equipped with a HDMI port and can be  connected to any commercially available monitor or TV.

    SealPeak – SEAL STRENGTH.

    For the sealing seam, the proven SealPeak technology is used.  hawo SealPeak sealing seams are 12 mm (0,5 inch) wide flat seams with a so called barrier of extremely high solidity at their centre, the SealPeak. The seal strength increases steadily from the edges towards the SealPeak. The advantage of these soft edges is that the product cannot break through the edges, but gently pierces them and is then caught by the SealPeak at the centre. SealPeak sealing seams also have excellent peeling properties without paper shredding, even if the user peels the pack open in the wrong direction. Of course, the hm 5000 DC-VI PrintPak med is suitable for sealing all common sealable pre-made sterile barrier systems and medical packaging as well as uncoated Tyvek® and polyolefin packaging. Modified seam structures can be offered on request.



    Environmental protection and sustainability are not ends in themselves. The hm 5000 DC-VI PrintPak med consistently counts on a resource-efficent design with a completely new type of sealing technology, which only needs a fraction of the energy required by similar devices. The heating works with a highly efficient 24 Volt system which reduces the power consumption to a minimum. The stand-by function and automatic shut-down, when not in use, complete hawo‘s GreenTek concept – without compromising the quality of the sealing results!



  • 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.



    • 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)
