Knowing Bulk Vending Machine
What is bulk vending machine?
Bulk Vending Machines are used when a large number of products need to
be vended. One important requirement is that the product needs to be dispensed
randomly and in no proper arrangement (as in the case of snack vending
machine where all snack items need to be in a queue). These are most commonly
used to vend large number of candies and gumballs, while they can also
be used to vend toys, nuts and confections. The machine doesn’t
require any power supply.
Technical Specifications of bulk vending machine
These machines have globes built out of polycarbonate plastic. Besides
providing clarity, this plastic is strong and shatter-proof and provides
safety to the machine and the products kept inside. The rest of the body
is often made out of 18-gauge steel to provide longevity to the machine.
Powdered coat finish is also applied to the machine to make it scratch
free and rust resistant.
Advantages of bulk vending machine
The major advantages of this vending machine are –
1. Various Payment Options: These machines are built to accept all sorts
of coins – 25 cent, 50 cent and in some cases even foreign coins
are accepted and read by these machines.
2. Easy to use coin boxes: As these machines display items in bulk, there
are chances that they might be used extensively by people. So it becomes
important to have separate coin chambers for each section so that the
intake of coins is balanced amongst all the chambers. Such an arrangement
also helps the vendor in collecting the coins at the end of the day.
3. Use of Spill Trays: There are chances of overflow involved with such
kind of machine. To counter this, spill trays are used to keep the location
clean and ensuring the customer is not at lost because of the spilt products.
4. Secured: As this machine is made out of 18-gauge steel, it is quite
secured against vandalism and theft. The locks are made out of steel.
5. Easy to Maintain: These machines are easy to maintain and service as
compared to soda and snack vending machines. This is because they are
simple in built and do not have much of wiring.
