Vacuum conveying system completes the package
A packaging and distribution organization selects a vacuum conveying system to transfer a dry detergent to a filling machine.
The Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ABVI), Rochester, N.Y., is a not-for-profit organization that provides employment opportunities for people who are blind and visually impaired. ABVI’s manufacturing and fulfillment division has 60 employees who convert, assemble, package, and distribute a wide range of high-quality products for federal and state government use. When the federal government wanted to switch to a bio-based laundry detergent for the military and other government entities, ABVI decided to bid on the contract to package the detergent for distribution. To secure the contract, ABVI had to develop a cost-efficient, user-friendly production line that included a vacuum conveying system to transfer the detergent from a bulk bag to a box-filling machine.
