Units Promise Faster Pharmaceutical Labeling for Thicker Outserts
Are you looking for a boost in speed for your pharmaceutical labeling operation? NJM Packaging introduces the expanded AUTOSERT™ family, the next generation of hot-melt glue outsert applicators. Achieving line speeds of up to 280 containers per minute, today’s AUTOSERT outserters are 25 percent faster than the successful first-generation AUTOSERT model introduced in 2011.
NJM designed the AUTOSERT family to accommodate the thick outserts that have resulted from FDA regulations for increased type-size, format and content requirements. Using hot-melt glue instead of adhesive tape, heavy outserts are more reliably held in place, while the cost of consumables is reduced. Units can be configured to apply side-serts or top-serts.
Featuring a rotating three-arm pick-and-place system, the 277 SIDESERT and 277 TOPSERT are capable of applying the widest range of outsert sizes to pharmaceutical containers with a high degree of accuracy at very high speeds. This includes the thickest pieces of folded literature such as double and triple outserts.
The 277 SIDESERT applies outserts from 0.125 to 1.5 inches (3 to 38 mm) thick, and the 277 TOPSERT handles outserts from 0.125 to 0.75 inches (3 to 19 mm) thick. The units place the literature to the sides or tops of round, square and rectangular bottles within a +/- 1.5 mm tolerance. Overall speed of outserters depends not only on the container size but also the outsert size, thickness, weight and folding integrity.
