Company has installed a Vijuk MV large format folder in its Evansville, IN facility. This purchase is in response to the FDA requirement for larger font sizes and additional prescribing information (RTA large format) on packaging inserts to manage the risk of medical product use and reduce medication errors. The increased type size necessitates the need for larger inserts. It’s a challenge for many drug companies to meet this requirement without having to make major changes to their existing packaging lines. The folder can fold inserts up to 150 panels thick, whereas many industry folding machines can only fold 90 to 120 panels. It can fold a flat sheet of up to 20.75 inches wide and can produce folded inserts that are smaller and thicker than other folders. The folder has a folding rate speed at 150% of many other folders and stores job settings for quicker make-readies. It also features an upgraded glue system and a digital water score system.
