The pharmaceutical and medical industries have considerable regulations. Feeder system builders must be certified and provide documentation before they can work on systems in these industries. To even enter a secure room, feed system builders must complete several hours of training.

Bausch & Lomb needed a surgical grade and certified glass vial eye wash solution system that delivered 350 parts per minute. The company contracted Hoosier Feeder to build a system to replace an existing one that didn’t meet current rate requirements.


Hoosier Feeder developed a vibratory feeder solution that fed and oriented multiple eye wash solution caps at a higher rate of speed. The company was able to meet the stringent guidelines mandated to work in the regulated environment, as well as feed the parts at a speed that achieved efficiency goals.
