Tube Type Vending in a nutshell: (you may never look at a box of straws the same again)

The vending industry in general generates a fair bit of waste, not in the day to day operations of these companies but in what to do with the vending machines as the reach their end of life cycle.

With the ever changing marketing needs of the end users, the shear diversity of packaging profiles and the lower amounts of plastic used in these bottles decommissioning of vending machines is on the rise.

What happens to the machines that are being retired because there inability to vend the new packaging designs coming forward? Generally they are either refurbished for a different a market, sold off to 3 parties, sent for recycling or are simply discarded as trash.

Until recently there has been little in the way of other options, this was the reason I invented the Tube Type Technology.

With a dimensional parameter of 6.5 inches square per selection and each unit being self contained you simply put these units into the vending machine until it is full then return it to active duty in the field. This creates and estimated savings of $1000 to $1600 dollars per vender as the box is saved from the trash, as to the previous insert it is fully recyclable.

You should be looking at his technology now, as a green solution for the environment with a profit for business as well.

Bottle Height adjustment

Click to for an enlarged View Were would we be with unit that was not adjustable?

The unit does not need shims for different bottles height adjustments if

needed are accomplished by adjusting the lower disc so the upper disc

rests 1/2 way down the cap. Whether you are vending of Sport Caps or not

generally no adjustments are needed for the cluster, however if you are

vending a super long bottle you may need this adjustment, so I have provided it.

Long Term Concepts

As the technology holds the package firmly and in place with no were for it to go, it is conceivable to preload the venders with bottles and deliver them to the location needed. I have tested this concept and it does work well. I bounced the machine fully loaded with bottles on a trailer for 2 hours, then removed it from the trailer, tipped it 30 degrees on a cart rolled it to its final location, stood it up and started vending.

This concept was originally brought forward for large bottlers with trailer delivery vehicles, however any one with a trailer and a generator could use this concept. This concept is not new and has been tried before, however using previously vending technologies. The trip to the site usually caused machine jams due primarily to the bouncing of the products on the trip to the location. This is not the case with the tube type technology.

The theory is to preload the trailers with 40 by 48 skid size vending machines, drive to the destination and drop the trailers. Then open the doors, start the generator or plug-in and start vending. This is useful in temporary venues such as sporting events and virtually and large venues. Should the trailer empty the driver simply goes and picks up another loaded one, drops it off and picks up the empty. It is estimated that 30 percent of the these trucks sit in the bottlers yard over the weekends, so why not make this time productive. At night simply close the doors to protect the machines and product from vandalism.
