Press release from the issuing company

Compact, reliable machine for dispensing canister desiccants into a wide range of containers for pharma & nutraceutical applications

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 – has introduced the CDFI Canister Feeder, an intermittent-motion machine for inserting desiccants or oxygen absorbers into a broad range of bottles, jars, tubes and vials. The latest addition to the company’s IMPACT series of packaging equipment, the compact, low cost unit 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 from 1, 2 and 3 gram. Changeover takes less than 5 minutes, and the machine can be supplied with a five-gallon canister reservoir or ten-gallon 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.”
