For early stage Blow Fill Seal projects we are able to produce molds and sample the design and produce prototypes. These prototypes can lead to a full scale production system. Production runs of clean and nonsterile items could be provided within a short time frame. Contact us to test your concept of single unit dosing with special tops for tear away, etc.
BFS Molds and Tooling
In addition to building Blow Fill Seal machines, we also build tooling. We make and repair Blow Fill Seal molds for any type of BFS or FFS machinery. Have the people who know the BFS process be your molding supplier. You will receive our expertise in complete your molding project with good delivery/turnaround time. Aseptically blow mold or form your desired containers with this equipment.

In house blow molding allows control over package design, stock levels and medical sterility that is not possible through outside procurement. The process involves the extrusion of material (plastic) clamping the two halves of a mold around the extrusion, and blowing air into the mold forming the container.
Once the container is formed, the valves controlling the air close, and valves controlling the liquid or viscous material open allowing a measured dose to flow into the container. The machine can be adjusted to use a variety of different fill products (from sterile water, infusion fluids and the like, to injectable medicines and vaccines). This process is completely sterile making it ideal for pharmaceuticals.
The mold can be designed to hermetically seal blocks of containers (ideal for ampules) or individual units. A variety of closures can be utilized that are part of the molded container, completely eliminating the need for a separate capping process. Closure designs include twist-off, break-off, or cut-off.
"American Plastics Technologies, Inc, is America's Superior manufacturer of Medical Blow-Fill-Seal machines.
We combine the APT technologies of blow molding hollow containers with a process to fill and seal the package, all in one machine cycle, in a fully sterile environment."
How Blow Fill Seal is suitable to your application:
- Customizable to many shapes, even flatter bag shapes
- Will prevent contamination and the entry of foreign particles, more than other types of filling lines and the traditional IV Bags.
- Reduce contamination to reduce chances of causing dangerous infections.
- Numerous advanced features exist, including septums, stoppers and other special unique closures.
Application Oriented Medical Packaging. The benefit of using blow molded plastics is that the container can be manufactured in many different shapes and sizes. Collapsible packing is widely used for medical infusion solutions. The soft plastic material allows for the administration of intravenous solutions without the need for air compensation (filters or venting).
The complete Blow-Fill-Seal Machine allows for considerable savings in space, increased efficiency and complete sterility. Complete control of the delivery, quality and cleanliness of containers is held in-house.
Containers can be customized to the individual company, giving a unique package associated with your medical products.
Flexibility in design allows for application oriented packaging (squeeze applicators, I.V. sets, pre-measured dosing).
Molded closures eliminate the need for a separate capping machine/procedure.
Complete safety from contaminants by completing the entire process in one machine, within a fully sterile environment.
