Portable Cost-Effective Econo Pouch Feeder System Feeds Desiccants and Oxygen Scavengers
EXTON, PA | Omega Design Corporation, a global provider of innovative packaging machinery for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and consumer healthcare industries, and a worldwide leader in bottle unscrambling technology, introduces its Econo Pouch Feeder, a portable cost-effective, non-pneumatic pouch inserter that feeds up to 150 desiccants or oxygen scavengers per minute. Requiring no air, the all-electric feeder is capable of single or multiple pouch drops per container, and can dispense into bottles, trays, diagnostic kits and more.
The Econo Pouch Feeder is part of Omega Design Corp.’s new IMPACT Series of pre-configured machines, an alternative buying path for companies of all sizes to obtain industrial equipment at a low entry point without sacrificing quality.
Thet Econo Pouch Feeder’s unique, patent-applied-for (PAF) dispensing head uses a stepper motor to quickly and accurately cut pouches from a strip. An operator loads a pouch desiccant reel onto its spindle and then feeds the desiccant strip into the dispensing head. The automatic feeder cuts the pouch desiccants from their strip, dispenses the desired quantity, and verifies the exiting of the desiccants from the dispensing head. Featuring an anodized aluminum frame, slimline dispensing head, and integrated color touchscreen HMI, the feeder accepts pouches from all major manufacturers.
The Econo Pouch Feeder comes with a variety of options. A bottle control handling system is a material handling solution for certain bottle profiles; a down bottle reject system offers redundancy protection for bottles exiting the machine; a dual pouch reel storage system increases accessibility and convenience; a machine status package increases visual machine status; a UL panel indicates certified cabinet construction, components and assembly; and a validation support package details documentation for validation requirements.
