US-based NJM Packaging has expanded its AUTOSERT family with the introduction of the new hot melt glue outsert applicators, the 277 SIDESERT and 277 TOPSERT, which can be configured to apply side-serts or top-serts to pharmaceutical containers.
The applicators feature a new rotating three-arm pick-and-place system and hot melt glue adhesion and are capable of applying the widest range of outsert sizes, including the thickest pieces of folded literature such as double and triple outserts.
The 277 SIDESERT applies outserts from 0.125 to 1.5 inches thick and can be integrated with any new or installed third party conveyor or NJM primary labeler such as the 426 AUTOCOLT, 334 CHARGER or the 326 AUTOCOLT IV. The 277 TOPSERT handles outserts from 0.125 to 0.75 inches thick and can be integrated with any new or installed third party conveyor.
Within a +/- 1.5 mm tolerance, the hot melt glue outsert applicators place the literature to the sides or tops of round, square and rectangular bottles.
NJM designed its new outsert carton magazine feeder, which is standard on the 277 TOPSERT and optional on the 277 SIDESERT and achieves a run-time of ten minutes when handling 1/4 inch thick outserts at a speed of 200 per minute.
