Krones' (Franklin, WI) Bulk Outsert Feeder/Applicator works in combination with Krones' rotary labelers to apply outserts used in pharmaceuticals, health and beauty, gardening and other applications.
It uses a patent-pending system that eliminates the need for stacked outserts in trays allowing packagers to buy outserts in bulk. Via a conveyor chute bulk inserts are individually pulled from a hopper fed to the labeler and brought down a short feed screw that transfers the outsert from the chute to the product container. Hot melt applied to the container adheres the outsert to the container. Operates at speeds exceeding 250 containers/min.
