In the early stage of drug production in China, manual packaging was mainly used. Later, with the development of production and technological progress, mechanical packaging was gradually adopted. The cartoning machines used in the early stage of our country were mainly imported from abroad. At that time, the quality of packaging materials and the processing and manufacturing of medicine boxes in China could not meet the requirements of machine packaging, so the cartoning machine could not be used normally. Therefore, the automatic cartoning machine was not widely used in China. For a long time, China's pharmaceutical production had to use manual operation instead of giving up automatic packing, The efficiency is extremely low. In the 1980s, especially after the reform and opening up, the related technology in the field of drug production has made rapid development, the quality of drug packaging materials and the processing and manufacturing of medicine boxes have made obvious progress, and the automatic packaging machine has begun to be fully applied. At this time, the automatic packaging machine has also changed the situation that foreign products dominate the world Since the automatic cartoning machine produced by a packaging machinery Co., Ltd. appeared in the national pharmaceutical machinery exhibition in the late 1990s, the box machine has been widely used, Some large-scale enterprises have begun to use domestic automatic packaging machine instead of manual packaging, and some domestic pharmaceutical enterprises are also constantly developing and producing new full-automatic drug packaging machines with more comprehensive functions.
There are many kinds of automatic packing machines for drugs made in China, According to different classification methods, the automatic cartoning machines in China can be divided into several categories. If there are four main series according to different packaging materials, they can be divided into bpk type G, namely bubble cover plate type injection type and ointment type automatic box filling machine In terms of the running speed of the automatic cartoning machine, it can be divided into three categories: the first type is medium and low speed type, the speed is about 60 ~ 80 boxes / min; the second type is medium high speed type, the speed is about 80 ~ 120 boxes / min; the third type is high speed type, the speed is more than 150 boxes / min, each type of machine has its own advantages and disadvantages, and its application is not consistent.
At present, the market share of domestic automatic cartoning machines is only about 30%, and the rest of the market is divided by imported products. At present, many large-scale domestic pharmaceutical manufacturers still use imported automatic packaging machines. The main reason for this phenomenon is that the comprehensive performance of domestic automatic cartoning machines can not meet the requirements of pharmaceutical manufacturers In recent years, in addition to some manufacturers specializing in the production of automatic drug cartoning machines, some domestic universities and research institutes have also participated in the development and production of automatic drug cartoning machines. It is believed that relying on the scientific research strength of various universities and scientific research institutes, the development and production of domestic automatic drug cartoning machines will be significant in the near future A breakthrough.
