The Latest in Inserts and Outserts
A full-service cCMP-compliant producer of product insert and outsert leaflets for the pharmaceutical industry has purchased a new Vijuk MV-11 Outsert System with three knife units. The purchase will allow Sertech to provide pharmaceutical customers with larger outserts that will accommodate more information as required by FDA regulations. Installation will be in two stages. In June 2010, the outsert system including two knife units and the new 16-plate G&K FA 53 Folder will be installed, giving Sertech the capability of folding outserts with up to 170 panels—as small as 1¹∕8 in. × 1¹∕8 in. A special third knife folder will be ready for installation in January 2011, which will make Sertech one of the first to be able to provide even more print space on outserts with up to 210 panels.
