ADI Divisions Support COVID Pandemic
Online PR News – 29-June-2020 – Erie, PA – Automation Devices, Inc (ADI), a manufacturing company that builds PEECO vibratory feeding equipment and Swan-Matic benchtop and handhelds capping solutions, continues to support customers during the Coronavirus pandemic. ADI provides a variety of automation equipment ranging from complete vibratory bowl feeder systems and components to pneumatic vial cappers and bottle capping accessories, to customers in the healthcare, biomedical and household essentials sectors whose products remain in great demand. A lot of our customers purchase vibratory feeding equipment or cappers,” says ADI President Kevin Smith. “They don’t realize we offer various product lines and may be missing out on what they need to achieve their complete in-house automation potential.”
A range of products are being fed and capped with equipment from ADI in the fight against COVID-19. In the medical and pharmaceutical segments, ADI customers from both Company divisions are providing enterprises on the frontlines of COVID with viral transport mediums and test kits, to capping equipment and pump components for sanitizing soaps and potential vaccinations. All of these items are critical in the diagnosis and protection against Coronavirus and will have a continued urgency, potentially for years, as manufactures work to provide products to combat global pandemics.
On the consumer products side, ADI President Kevin Smith believes that the stockpiling of everyday essentials, such as soap, paper products and hand sanitizer, is for the most part, behind us. However, these industries are seeing an overall shift in consumer consciousness in disinfecting and hygienic care that will require high levels of manufacturing automation for the unforeseeable future. “These companies will continue to see a great deal of demand. They’ll undoubtedly look to automation equipment, like hoppers and vibratory bowls, to handle the influx,” says Smith.
“By partnering with ADI, our vibratory feeding systems and bottle cappers are filling manufacturing voids and creating efficiencies in an era where time saving practices are significant,” says Smith. “Not only at ADI & Swan-Matic, but across the globe we’re seeing an increase in automation as production levels for essential products rise. The need for automaton will also increase as companies look to streamline workers in an effort to protect employee safety and maintain social distancing guidelines.
“Customers look to ADI to bridge the gap and fulfill their automation requirements,” says Smith. “We’ve been serving customers for over 70 years and our loyalty and commitment to do so remains the same,” adds Smith.
