When approached by even the most thorough pharmaceutical manufacturers, Hoosier Feeder Company makes it a priority to deliver products that exceed expectations. A pharmaceutical company contracted Hoosier Feeder Company to design and construct a vibratory feeder to take in bulk flip-top caps, orient, and feed them at the rate of 225 parts per minute for integration in a continuous motion capping machine.
Feeder design and manufacturing are closely intertwined when the feeder is implemented into the pharmaceutical sector. In order to maintain proper sterility, a fill and grind method of manufacturing is used to ensure no cavities exist for bacteria to collect and grow. In order to achieve such high sterility requirements, our experienced builders take steps early in the manufacturing process to allow access for sanding and grinding tools used to grind away cavities much later in the build. Additionally, this system was to be used in a continuous motion filling system so consistent rates of 225 parts per minute were mandatory. Within 11 weeks from start to finish, Hoosier Feeder Company produced a pharmaceutical grade cap feeder which supplied (1) line of oriented parts at the required rate and above. We take every opportunity to provide reliable and consistent parts feeding systems that pair with superior customer service, which is why we are the exclusive vibratory feeder supplier for this customer.
