Platinum Press Enhances Capabilities with Outsert Bundling System from G&K-Vijuk
OAKLAND, N.J. — September 12, 2016 — Platinum Press (PPI), a leading provider of healthcare packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical, medical device and animal care sectors that specializes in labels, folding cartons (including secondary blister packaging), inserts/outserts and medication guides, 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 easy dissemination of important instructions to patients, pharmacists, or medical professionals.
The recent installation is part of a larger, ongoing ramp-up at Platinum Press’ Oakland, New Jersey facility. The 47,000-square-foot manufacturing space provides geographic convenience for East Coast customers, as well as additional capacity and redundancy of the company’s 100,000-square-foot headquarters in Grand Prairie, Texas.
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.
