Platinum Press Adds Outsert Bundling System
September 17, 2016
Platinum Press, Inc. has enhanced its capabilities with the installation of a new GluePac outsert bundling system from equipment manufacturer G&K-Vijuk. The modular system can feed, stack and glue twinsets and multiserts, turning multiple outserts into a single component for dissemination of instructions to patients, pharmacists, or medical professionals.
The GluePac® system is composed of a conveyor, two- to four- PA15 folded-leaflet feeders (expandable and configurable to requirements), a gluing unit, and vertical delivery. The servo-driven PA15 feeders are mounted perpendicularly to the conveyor and synchronized to precisely advance, rotate (90°), and feed outserts in proper order and orientation for bundling. An optional camera system is available for OCR/Pattern matching and bar code reading at the feeding point of each PA15, ensuring correct composition of the sets.
