Feed disc and gravure rolls need to be changed to suit the shape and size of the product. Feed discs can be ordered with different numbers and sizes of pocket and can be interchanged in 5 minutes. Gravure rolls can also be ordered with any imprint and these are matched with the pocket spacing on the feed disc. Roll changing requires just one minute.

FEED DISCS AND GRAVURE ROLLS
Feed discs and gravure rolls can be ordered in any size in order to obtain most efficient production. Discs are available in 45 pockets. The smaller the piece, the more pockets can be used and the higher the production rate. Number of pockets on the feed disc determines spacing of the imprints etched on the gravure roll-each disc requires a matching roll. However, both discs and rolls are moderately priced and quickly changed. One machine equipped with several feed discs and gravure rolls is a fully flexible printer able to mark almost any tablet or capsule the Manufacturerr may wish to market.
PRINTS ON ANY SHAPE
Prints on almost any size or shape, on one side or both, in one colour or two of either empty or filled capsules.
