2015 Brings Product Expansion of Packaging, Filling and Capping Lines, and New Labelers & Bottle Trackers
NJM Packaging is looking back over the past year. It has been a very busy 100th year. While Taylor Swift continued to dominate the pop charts, NJM shipped several new AUTOCOLT labeling machines, the new Cremer Tablet Counters, track and trace bottle trackers and labelers, and expanded its Dara liquid filling and capping equipment offerings. We also looked back fondly on some of our 100 Year History.
New regulations in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as new innovations, inspired the release of high speed solid dose and liquid lines for labeling, filling, capping, SVP, and track and trace. In the past couple of years, we’ve introduced a few new versions of our stalwart AUTOCOLT labeler. The 426 AUTOCOLT made its debut at Pack Expo 2012 in Chicago. Ideal for solid dose pharmaceuticals, it labels square, rectangular, and round bottles at speeds of up to 300 containers per minute and applies wraparound or three panel labels and optional side and/or topserts at higher speeds than traditional labelers. It also accommodates RFID tagging and is ready to integrate with track and trace serialization systems.
We revealed the 326 AUTOCOLT IV, a 300 container-per-minute pressure-sensitive labeler with servo-driven precision and reliability, at Pack Expo 2013 in Las Vegas. Also handling a variety of bottle shapes, wraparound and multipanel labels, and outserts, it’s ready for e-pedigree serialization and RFID tagging.
NJM also introduced two labelers that handle 400 containers per minute: the AUTOCOLT IV Trunnion and the Cremer Tablet Counter CFI-622. The Beltorque caps at 300 containers per minute. The 277 AUTOSERT sidesert/topsert applicators, the TE-20 Tablet Elevator, and 402 P&A were offered.
With all the new machinery, NJM’s older offerings have proven their reliability. We love the calls from customers looking for replacement parts for a Model 315 Mustang™ Labeler. A more recent machine that we found was a 40-year-old Apache 550 In-Line Capper, was “being retired” at Happy Jack in Snow Hill, NC.
Our Packaging Doctor also made a re-appearance this year as we searched through the archives of how we advertised in the years past. He’s been retired for many years, but he was an integral part of our Company’s branding as the ‘packaging specialist doctor’.
A welcome result of this 100 Year Celebration in 2015 was the unveiling of our founder Martin Feybusch’s grandson. He discovered NJM online through this ‘Not Just Machine’s BLOG’ bringing him in touch with NJM requesting a tour with his children. NJM Packaging still holds a special place in the hearts of its’ founding families descendants.
We hope our next 100 years deliver more excellence and more innovation to our customers. If you missed it, bone up on NJM’s first 100 years.
