Top-loading parenteral and secondary packaging specialist Dividella has set a new benchmark for high-speed parenteral packaging with its latest NeoTRAY fully automatic family of cartoners that supports outputs up to 40 million packs per shift/year. This range of cartoners is especially suited for high-output, low product count packs.
Top-loading and side-loading combined
The NeoTRAY establishes an additional benchmark by operating with both the careful handling of a top loader and the high speed of a continuous motion side-loading cartoner.
The modular system allows for a broad range of applications for high volumes. It is particularly suitable for packaging parenteral administration forms, including vials, syringes, injectors, pens, ampoules and cartridges, as well as inhalers, nasal sprays and other applications.
NeoTRAY combines the recognised production and environmental advantages of 100% mono-material packs with Dividella’s emphasis on modular design and engineering, as well as 40-years’ worth of experience in product handling to provide highly adaptable and customised feeding solutions.
The best of two worlds combined
No more having to choose between top-loading flexibility and side-loading speed. The NeoTRAY combines the best of both worlds in one machine.
Dividella CEO Christoph Hammer added: “With our patented top-loading technology, the products are gently placed into the open trays from above. Fast side-loading can manage large volumes of a wide variety of parenterals.”
The NeoTRAY saves time and money at an accelerated rate. The intelligently designed cartoning machine processes up to 400 individual products or multipacks per minute while utilising a best-in-class range of package formats ranging in size from 65x35x15mm to 200x150x110mm.
To meet current and future regulatory requirements, the NeoTRAY also offers integrated solutions for tamper evident and child-resistant packaging, as well as serialisation functionality.

NeoTRAY is designed to use 100% monomaterials for more efficient and cost-saving packaging of the highest quality.
The NeoTRAY system comprises three principal modules:
- Tray Forming Module – This section feeds and forms trays from pre-glued die-cut blanks, with magazines positioned for high visibility and ease of access
- Top Loading Module – Dividella’s state-of-the-art in-feeding systems top load the products in a continuous motion into the erected trays. In addition, other inline operations, including checking machine-readable codes on the packaging, verifying the trays’ contents, and loading of leaflets and booklets
- Side Loading Module – After insertion of all products, the erected and filled trays arrive via the product conveyor at the side-loading module where the tray is inserted into the carton. In addition, cartons can be closed in a variety ways, including hot melt, various styles of tuck-in flaps, and tamper evidence features
The NeoTRAY features good manufacturing practice (GMP) compliant construction and is capable of producing packages that conform to Directive 2011/62/EU
The debut for the Dividella NeoTRAY will be at Achema in June 2018.
