Manufacturing Process

Medical and Pharmaceutical Packaging solutions

Encaplast studies the best solution for its partners’ needs with its R&D Department, together with the Technical Department, in strict compliance with norms and quality standards.

Material cutting, printing, coupling/laminating and welding are the main steps of the productive process  through which the packaging solutions for your needs are made.


The productive process starts by cutting the material. From Tyvek® jumbo rolls, papers, aluminums and films, the machines shape the material according to the customer's needs.


Once shaped, the material is ready to be printed (where necessary). Logos, certifications, texts, infographics, details: thanks to the technical office, the most appropriate solutions are adopted. Encaplast has flexographic printing systems up to 6 colors, even duplex.

Coupling / Laminating

If necessary, at this stage of the productive process, the layers (papers, aluminums and films) are joined to create the desired packaging. Once paired/laminated it is time to weld!


One of the most delicate phases is welding. It is important to meet high quality standards to ensure maximum sealability, repeatability and performance of the materials used, without forgetting the peelability of the envelopes for the medical and pharmaceutical sector.


Product quality in the medical and pharmaceutical sector especially means production in protected and extremely clean environments. In the last few years, our clean room has been completely modernized, enhancing quality control systems and educating the staff according to the highest standards of reliability and professionalism. The clean room at Encaplast is highly innovative, with particular attention to the flow of goods and constantly updating with state-of-the-art machinery and techniques. It is important to emphasize that Encaplast‘s production offers high quality standards also due to the accuracy with which the “skilled hands” of our qualified personnel control every single produced packaging.

R&D and Technical Department

The central part in the company organization is the technical department, strengthened and expanded more and more over the years.
