The DG-Vision and the DG-AUXO are highly suitable for the production of medical inserts/leaflets or prescriptions. Normally these products are printed in key (black) color on both sides of the paper, which means only 2 offset printing units are required to print the text of the leaflets. However, adding additional printing units allows for more colorful pharma leaflets of higher value. The thickness of pharma paper normally varies between 35 – 60 gsm, which is quite thin but can be handled perfectly on our machinery.
Equipping a DG-Vision press with a sheeter and automatic non-stop stacking module as an output option will create a compact and high-volume reel-to-sheet machine. Starting at an unwinder, reels of paper are printed on by using the offset printing units, the web is turned over between the units by using a turner bar which allows recto/verso print (2 sides). The ink is cured by a (LED) UV system, and afterward, the reel is neatly cut into sheets and will be automatically stacked at the end of the press. The pharma leaflets are then ready to be folded and integrated into medicine boxes. A mechanical or digital numbering module can be added to the machine to personalize or add serial numbering to the leaflets. In some cases, a silicone application unit is integrated to apply a small layer of substance for better handling of sheeted leaflets. Your desired machine configuration can be manufactured to meet all your production requirements. All of our presses are custom-made and designed in cooperation with you.
DG-Vision is available in 520mm web width, but can also be manufactured in a 670mm web width model. DG-AUXO also starts at 520mm, which makes it also suitable for pharma printing. The advantage of our machinery is modularity, any suitable printing modules can be added to the machine configuration during initial manufacturing, or at a later stage once the machine is already up and running in your production facility.
With a repeat range of 16” up to 28 1/3” on the DG-Vision and 16” up to 30” on the DG-AUXO, we cover all possible repeat lengths which are being utilized in the pharmaceutical printing segment. Automatization of production by integrating high-end web video systems and/or quality inspection systems in combination with a high-speed sheeter and automatic stacker make the DG-Vision and DG-AUXO the best solution for continuous pharma leaflet production.
