Turkish pharmaceuticals firm buys Newman labeller

To be used to label glass vials in a range of sizes

MN Pharmaceuticals will use the S350 to label glass vials

MN Pharmaceuticals, one of the oldest pharmaceutical companies in Turkey, has bought a Newman Labelling Systems S350 fully automatic labeller.

MN Pharmaceuticals manufactures active pharmaceutical ingredients and finished dosage forms across its four facilities in Istanbul.

Since the firm operates to cGMP and cGLP, a production line that is fast, accurate and reliable is essential and the S350 meets those criteria, the company said.

The S350 operates at speeds of 300 containers a minute

The S350 automatic self-adhesive labelling system is designed to operate 24/7 at a rate of up to 300 containers a minute.

The S350 is a versatile system for the application of both paper and clear plastic labels to cylindrical products in glass, plastic, metal and composite materials. MN Pharmaceuticals will use it to label glass vials ranging in size from 10–100ml.

The installation at MN Pharmaceuticals includes a product infeed rotary turntable buffer and is being used with a hot foil coder, overprint detection, pharmacode reader, vial colour cap detection, missing label detection and reject station.

Newman Labelling Systems is a leading UK manufacturer of labelling systems, with models designed specifically for the pharmaceutical industry.
