Parenteral nutrition


Automated production of solutions for parenteral nutrition

If you produce solutions for parenteral nutrition, Metzner can help you with various automation solutions. The Metzner KL-BV was specially developed for processing pressure-sensitive tubes. With the Metzner ST-OB you can cut films for bags very precisely. We also have many years of experience in project planning and the construction of customer-specific solutions for companies in the medical technology sector. 

The Metzner KL-BV for processing tubes for parenteral nutrition

The Metzner KL-BV was specially developed for applications in medical technology such as parenteral nutrition. Because the blades are from 0.1 mm | 0.004″ thick, the pressure acts almost exclusively on the interface. Any kind of deformation of the tubes for parenteral nutrition is therefore reduced to a minimum. In addition, the blade does not press on the material from above, but moves into the tube at an angle. The cutting angle can be set exactly as required. The pressure of the feed belts can also be precisely adjusted. This allows you to react precisely to different batches and hose types. In order to achieve the greatest possible length accuracy, it is also possible to regulate the feed speed, which is particularly advantageous for short hoses. The machine can make 330 cuts per minute in hoses with a diameter of up to 18 mm | 45/64“. Thanks to all these factors, you can create recipes very easily so that you can always deliver consistent quality.

Of course, the KL-BV is also available in stainless steel.

Film processing with the Metzner ST-OB

The Metzner ST-OB is a universal cutting machine for rubber, plastics and films with a height or width of 150 x 30 mm | 5 29/32. The special feature of the machine is the fine adjustment options with which the operator can react to different materials and batches. The machine cuts extremely powerfully and very precisely. It is very popular for cutting medical films, for example. 

Of course, the ST-OB is also available in stainless steel. 

Metzner can also customize machines on the software side or develop them for your needs. Not only solutions for shortening, punching, cutting and printing are possible. Metzner has already developed machines that glue automatically. Of course, it is also possible to integrate components or machines from other manufacturers. We will help you.
