MDI Canisters

Primary packaging for drug delivery as aerosol

Pressteck is a specialist for the production of deep-drawn MDI canisters made of stainless steel or aluminium. With our long-standing experience and our reputation for highest quality, we are a strategic partner to some of the leading pharmaceutical companies.


Our canisters are used as primary packaging for drug delivery as aerosol. Patients all over the world are using metered-dose inhalers for the treatment of respiratory deseases like Asthma and COPD. Additionally, they are increasingly applied for pain therapy (Medical Cannabis Inhalers).


The cans are compatible with all common valves available on the market and can be used for the currently used HFA gases as well as for the new lowGWP gases HFA152a and HFO1234ze.

Pressteck has all standard sizes of MDI cans in its portfolio: 10ml, 14ml, 17ml, and 19ml. If you have individual demands which require a different size, we are able to offer these as well.

Depending on the drug as well as the propellant, different materials are being used. We produce our canisters out of aluminium and stainless steel.

Whereas stainless steel MDI canisters are usually used in plain condition, aluminium cans can be also provided in coated condition.



Our MDI canisters comply with all relevant standards. The production is certified for ISO 9001, 14001 and 15378. Furthermore, we work in accordance to the cGMP rules. As an expert in the deep-drawing technology, we are continously improving our production processes to increase efficency and to reduce material usage, waste and costs. With our dedicated deep-drawing presses, we are able to ensure a continous high level of quality with tightest tolerances to ensure the efficient API filling and assembly processes at the customer‘s facilities.



To be able to produce primary packaging materials for medicinal products, you need to combine high manufacturing skills with a strong commitment to cleanliness. Our parts are cleaned in state-of-the-art washing machines, 100% inspected and packed – all under clean room conditions.
