Customer’s Challenge

Our customer asked us to accumulate filled prescription bottles and distribute them to 14 separate inspection stations on demand without any product damage.

Garvey’s Solution

This system is a pill bottle distribution system that automatically feeds bags on demand. At this point, the bottles are filled, capped, and labeled. A typical system would get this product from multiple cappers and to feed the baggers would have to go through multiple traffic areas, a controls nightmare. What this system is able to do is to accumulate the product, continue the flow past every bagger and when a bagger needs a product, it is there as needed. Our system is able to eliminate traffic or metering while maintaining a constant, seamless flow of product.
