The technology of reference for insulin pen cartridge production worldwide

Thanks to its consolidated experience as a glass forming machine manufacturer, we produce easy-to-use machines that offer high-speed production, fewer rejects and mechanically resistant, cosmetic-compliant cartridges and dual-chamber cartridges. Stevanato Group engineers its cartridge lines with an emphasis on all forming phases including glass tube feeding, the glass forming process, transport, annealing, and packing. Two thirds of the total global volume of cartridges used in the treatment of diabetes is manufactured with our equipment.
