Omega Design Corp. Introduces Low Cost, Auto-Indexing Canister Desiccant Inserter

CDFI Canister FeederOmega Design Corporation has introduced the CDFI Canister Feeder, an intermittent-motion machine for inserting desiccants or oxygen absorbers into bottles, jars, tubes and vials. The latest addition to the company’s IMPACT series of packaging equipment can accommodate up to 100 containers per minute.

The CDFI Canister Feeder accurately dispenses single or multiple canister drops with a simple selector switch. It features a simple set-up, and accepts canisters from all major manufacturers.

Among the CDFI Canister Feeder’s key attributes are its ease of use and versatility: the unit does not require bottle change parts and, with the appropriate tooling, can accommodate various size canisters. Changeover takes less than five minutes, and the machine can be supplied with a 5-gal canister reservoir or 10-gal hopper with elevator.

The unit works as follows:

  • Operators load desiccants into the hopper reservoir, then adjust the machine for the ensuing bottle run.
  • An elevator belt carries desiccants into a sorter, down a vertical chute and onto a dispensing plate.
  • The desired quantity is then dispensed automatically, and the Allen Bradley PLC verifies that desiccants have exited the machine.

The CDFI Canister Feeder is built on a sturdy, freestanding mobile frame for easy transport to conveying stations on factory floors.

“The CDFI Canister Feeder keeps costs down while increasing simplicity and versatility,” said Glenn Siegele, president of Omega Design Corporation. “As line configurations become increasingly customized by job, we designed the unit to be a flexible, plug-and-play solution that can be utilized as needed, and at a low cost to our customers.”
