Lugaia’s strengths lie in providing market-ready, single-use film products and solutions for customers who rely on hygiene process technology. The film systems are manufactured in clean rooms and after use can be safely discarded. This greatly reduces your need for expensive and time-consuming cleaning processes as well as associated qualification procedures that can be costly. Lugaia offers superior standardized products across a wide variety of quality classes. 

Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company? 

LUGAIA: Since 2006 Lugaia focuses on life science, pharmaceutical and biotechnology with Swiss precision and cutting-edge technology for innovative and individual product and personal protection. 

E.E: What’s the news about new products? 

LUGAIA: For sealing and separating, the Continuous Liner will be using the Lugaia patented SafeSeal Closure System. Whereby an OEB 5 (<1μg/m3) Containment-Level can be guaranteed. With the SafeSeal Pneumatic Tool a partially automated closing system was developed, which excels with simple operation, high work safety, universal usability and high quality. It is used at the end of line packaging with high filling rates. 

A well-designed, flexible containment isolator comes very close to a stainless-steel isolator in terms of protection and can offer various advantages depending on the application. This can be especially true for smaller product 

quantities, frequent product changes and common changes in process steps. The flexible isolators can be equipped with innovative ventilation technology with which the isolator can be put under pressure. 

E.E: What are the ranges of products? 

LUGAIA: We have four major ranges of products: 

– Continuous Liner System: The use of Lugaia’s continuous liner to ensure the safety of personnel and products is effective and very popular. Continuous Liner Carriers form the interface between the outlet and the Continuous Liner Package resulting in industry-appropriate handling and protection. 

– TransferBag System: Lugaia TransferBags meet the stringent containment requirements of the pharmaceutical and biotech industries and are utilized in the product transfer of small quantities. The optimal connectivity and size of the TransferBags is chosen for each application. 

– SafeFlex Isolator System: Isolators can be used to protect both the environment or the processed product. Flexible containment can be modified quickly and adapted to your needs, allowing you to save time and money. 

– SafeSeal Closure System: The SafeSeal Closure System guarantees Containment-Level OEB 5 (<1μg / m³) in combination with Lugaia Continuous Liners and forms the basis of the manual lock systems. When utilizing the SafeSeal Opener, the closure can be removed again without any additional cutting processes. The entire closure system consists of SafeSeal Crimps, as well as a crimp and a cutting tool and can be completed with a protective cap and hanger.
