Dividella accelerates high-output packaging with new NeoTRAY flagship cartoner
The NeoTRAY sets a further ‘first’ in being able to operate in both sensitive top-loading and fast side-loading in co ntinuous motion.
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 recognized production and environmental advantages of 100% mono-material packs with Dividella's emphasis on modular design and engineering and 40-year experience in product handling to provide highly adaptable and customized feeding systems.
The best of two worlds combined
Previous machines have optimized for either side-loading or top-loading, to work either especially quickly or especially gently, with manufacturers forced to trade-off flexibility against performance. The NeoTRAY combines the best of both worlds in one machine. “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,” Christoph Hammer, Dividella CEO, added.
The NeoTRAY saves time and money: at high speed, the efficient cartoning machine processes up to 400 individual products or multipacks per minute while reliably adapting to a best-in-class range of individual product package and multipacks formats ranging in size from 65x35x15 mm to 200x150x 110 mm.
To meet current and future regulatory requirements, the NeoTRAY also offers integrated solutions for tamper evidence, child safety and Track & Trace functions.

NeoTRAY is designed to use 100 per cent monomaterials for more efficient and cost-saving packaging of the highest quality.
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 infeeding systems top-load the products in a continuous motion into the erected trays. This module also performs other in line operations such as: checking machine readable codes, verifying tray contents and variable data, inserting leaflets and/or booklets, and printing/marking alphanumeric text and coding on the package.
Side-Loading Module: After inserting of all products, the erected and filled trays arrive via stacking conveyor at the Continuous Motion Cartoner where packages can be closed in various ways, using hotmelt, or fugitive glue, with or without tamper evidence or tuck in flaps.
The NeoTRAY features GMP compliant construction, conforming to Directive 2011/62/EU
