NJM/CLI Introduces the Model 277 Auto-Sert Outsert Applicator

NJM/CLI introduces the new Model 277 Auto-Sert Outsert Applicator. Featuring hot melt glue adhesion with compact and versatile outsert extraction, NJM/CLI designed this outsert applicator to comply with the new industry standards resulting in thicker outserts because of additional content, larger type and formatting requirements. The Model 277 Auto-Sert Outsert Applicator attaches outserts to pharmaceutical containers at high speeds, handling a wide range of outsert sizes and reducing operating costs by minimizing the cost of consumables.

The new Model 277 Auto-Sert Outsert Applicator uses hot melt glue, which reliably holds heavy outserts. The new applicator handles outserts 0.875 to 2.5 inches (22 to 63 mm) wide and 1.125 to 4 inches (29 to 100 mm) high and up to 1.5 inches (38 mm) thick at speeds up to 220 bottles per minute.

Designed to be integrated with a primary labeler such NJM/CLI's Model 326 Auto-Colt III or Model 334 Charger as a new system or retrofitted in the field, the new Auto-Sert Outsert Applicator applies outserts to the sides of round, square and rectangular containers. Integrated with NJM/CLI's Model 276 Carousel Outsert Feeder that expands the infeed storage capacity, the system offers run times of up to one hour without reloading.

The Model 277 Auto-Sert Outsert Applicator features a vacuum cup at the end of a rotating arm that moves into the hopper to ensure the outsert is securely held while the pivoting arm rotates to deliver the outsert to the container. Thin outserts are handled by picking the outsert from the hopper with the vacuum cup while thick outserts are handled by a combination of pushing and picking. For customers needing to handle the widest range of outsert thicknesses, the end of the vacuum arm may be a change part, which is designed for fast and easy changeovers with no tools required.

Featuring two servomotors - one that drives the rotating arm in a circle and the other that moves the arm in and out to dip into hopper - NJM/CLI designed the Model 277 Auto-Sert for years of reliable, low-maintenance operation. Its heavy-duty stainless steel and aluminum construction and high quality components meet GMP standards and offers exceptional durability.
