  • Description

     Exclusively G&K-Vijuk’s…

    • G&K-Vijuk patented outsert systems are for the production of RTA (right-turn-angle) cross-folded outserts. Outserts, which have become the standard for providing information in the pharmaceutical industry, are leaflets that are folded to a small size and secured to form closed leaflets which will not spring open during packaging operations or while affixed directly onto product containers.

     

    Significant advantages for you and your customers…

    • The MV-11 Double Knife Systems fold an intermediate range of finished outsert sizes, folding up to 250 panels, as small as 1-1/ 8" x 1-1/ 8".
    • Larger outserts allow more copy space for your customer.
    • Each knife unit is followed by high-compression pressing units, which results in very compact outserts that are easier to handle manually and mechanically—and will give advantageous options in packaging. 

     

    Tailored to fit your needs...

    • Components for outsert systems are designed to handle light-weight stock for pharmaceutical and miniature leaflet folding.
    • Station I options are:

    • Station II is a 2-plate GUK Folder modified with special folding rollers, plates, and pressure roller to handle the thick, small-size leaflets.
    • The R6 Round-Pile Feeder is standard. The FL2 or FL3 Flat-Pile Feeder are available, depending on your needs (see Feeders). 

     

    Modular design gives you production flexibility and efficiency…

    • See Special Features for advanced production efficiency.
    • If your customer needs change, the MV-11 Double Knife System can be upgraded to an MV-11 Triple Knife System with the addition of a knife unit and a pressing unit.
    • MV Outsert Systems can be configured as required. 
    • Optional Accessories and Supplementary Equipment are available for optimizing production or adding applications.

  • Special Features

    Special Features

    "Intelligent" self-teaching jam detection…

     

    The ELECTRONIC JAM DETECTING SENSOR (1), one of many on the outsert system, is part of “intelligent” self-teaching jam detection. Sensors throughout the system record the timing of sheet passage. If product does not arrive at a sensor point in the proper time, the operation preceding that point will shut down to prevent further jamming and minimize downtime.

     

     

    Continuous Production…

     

    FA53 FOLDER DOUBLE-SHEET EJECTION SYSTEM
    When the Double-Sheet Detector (1) sheets or a miss-feed,…

    …it activates the pneumatic cylinders (2) that open the gate (3) through which double sheets are ejected before they reach the folder. Production continues uninterrupted. (FA73 Folders have a similar ejection system.)

    Compact outserts…

    -

    WATER SCORING (4), combined with rotary scoring, brings about accurate, tight folds.

     

    Accurately folded outserts…

    -

    FOLD-LENGTH MONITORS, one concealed above the exit rollers on Station I and one mounted beneath the exit rollers on Station II, measure product coming through and stop the machine when the folded length is incorrect.

      • When programmed for 100% verification, and the scanners do not see glue on the outserts, the feeder will be turned off to stop production for manual removal of incomplete outserts.
      • When the station is used in conjunction with the G&K–Vijuk TTM, CTM or CM Station, the non-glued outserts will be ejected automatically through the station while production continues uninterrupted.
      UM90 Turn Station
      • Modular station for optimal use of your produciton area.
      • Easy integration without tools
