CEN at MJBizCon: Machine Specifically Designed to Feed Zippered Pouches

Up to 60 pieces per minute, some 3,600 units per hour.


The Cannabis Equipment News team recently traveled to MJBizCon, held in Las Vegas from November 28 through December 1. At the show, we interviewed equipment manufacturers, cultivators, operators and new product developers to learn more about what they bring to the cannabis industry.

The VFS-1000 vertical feed system from Dartronics feeds zippered pouches and cartons that have been difficult to work with in the past. The system is also used for labeling or directly ink-jetting onto packaging, up to 60 pieces per minute, some 3,600 units per hour.

Dartronics President Kenneth Darrow says the machine was designed so the pouches can stack on edge, alleviating previous difficulties working with zippered pouches. 

The VFS-1000 offers a standalone process for labeling pouches and everything on the machine is toolless, which means product changeover typically takes five to 10 minutes, according to Darrow. 

The next MJBizCon will be held from December 3, 2024, through December 6, 2024, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
