PHS SideSert Outserter
Available from MGS Machine Corp
Displaying its industry-leading ability to meet its clients' unique packaging needs, MGS Machine recently created a first-of-its kind application, the PHS SideSert Outserter. The SideSert is especially effective for those in the pharmaceutical bottling and labeling industry who need to amend their product pamphlets due to upcoming regulatory changes.
The SideSert glues an outsert to the side of a round bottle in a specific radial location, so the label on the bottle continues to be fully visible. A vision camera identifies the correct placement location on the bottle, a servo orienter spins the bottle to the correct location, glue is applied, and the Pick n' Place places the outsert on the side of the bottle. The GMP design eliminates the possibility of lost outserts in the machine and reduces time spent in outsert count validation. The PHS SideSert conforms to ANSI safety and cGMP guidelines and runs at speeds of up to 30 bottles per minute.
A flexible standard design allows the SideSert to be supplied as a stand-alone machine, provided with a conveyor, or fit over an existing line.
An open station prior to outsert placement allows for additional functions, such as barcode scanning, greatly reducing waste and rework. And end users can customize the machine to their specific needs, making the SideSert an exceptionally versatile application.
