The M4 REMOTE CONTROL UNIT (below) allows operation of the system from a Station II location.

E - Features

ZWT53/2 TRANSFER UNIT 

 

 

The variable-speed transfer unit transports the paper from Station I to Station II.

• Has independent speed control.
• Ensures accurate paper registration.

 

 

 

 

F - Features

CONTROL PANEL (HMI)   

 

 

The touch-screen, color-graphical controller (left) controls all the functions of the G&K-Vijuk Outsert Section—the knife folder, pressing unit, and vertical stacker—controlling speed, alignment, counts, and jam detection.

 

The Baumer hhs® Controller (right) controls the glue process.

G - Features

KNIFE FOLDING UNIT 

The Knife Unit is technologically advanced for efficient and accurate high-speed outsert production, with added safety features.  

• For easy setup, DIGITAL DIALS provide quick references for new and repeat jobs.

• Gluing is integrated for efficiency.

• The exit belt shaft is spring loaded to accommodate different thicknesses for consistent, dependable delivery of outserts.

 

 

 

H - Features

PRESSING UNIT 

The heavy-duty pressing unit compresses the folded outserts as they leave the knife folding unit, resulting in very compact outserts. 

• Compact outserts are easier to handle manually and mechanically—and present advantageous options in packaging.
• Compact outserts will give you savings in storage, shipping, and packaging.

 

I - Features

VERTICAL-STACKING DELIVERY UNIT

 

Improved to handle the speed and greater number of panels, it stacks the folded outserts in an upright fashion for easy, orderly collection.
• An air-activated batch kicker staggers pieces to mark batches.

  • 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.

     

    Advantages for you and your customers

    • The MV-11 Single Knife System is great for folding small outserts and is a good first step into outsert folding.
    • It fold outserts with up to 110 panels as small as 1-1/ 8" x 1-1/ 8", but is expandable into a Double Knife or Triple Knife System with the addition of knife and pressing units.
    • G&K-Vijuk Outsert Systems are known for high-compression leaflet folding along with precise gluing, which results in very compact outserts that are easier to handle manually and mechanically—and 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 4-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 Single Knife System can be upgraded to an MV-11 Double Knife System or an MV-11 Triple Knife System with the addition of knife units and pressing units.
    • MV Outsert Systems can be configured as required. 
    • Optional Accessories and Equipment are available for optimizing production or adding applications.

    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,…

    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.
