TAYLOR, MI, JUNE 2 2021 – Dura-Pack, the industry-leading manufacturer of cannabis packaging machines and cannabis pouches, has partnered with VMek to offer a sorting and counting solution for THC and CDB-infused gummies.

The VMek Abacus+ Count Batching + Inspection system is a robust gummies sorting and counting system specifically designed to integrate with Horizontal Form Fill and Seal (HFFS) / Vertical Form Fill and Seal (VFFS) systems, pre-made pouch bagging machines, and rigid container handling systems for the cannabis industry. The Abacus+ counts and validates each gummie for size and color and generates reports for each package.


Each part is validated prior to counting • 360° inspection is performed on all parts • All parts are validated by size and color


Parts are divided by programmed target • Batch counts are divided by programmed target • High-speed ejectors and diverts are used to group the parts for proper packaging


A quality score is created for each batch • The data is displayed for on-screen monitoring for efficient system operation

The data can also be streamed to the customer’s control system

“Partnering with VMek allows us to complement our cannabis packaging equipment line by offering dedicated cannabis-infused gummies counting and sorting solution”, said Phillip Harrison, Cannabis Packaging and Automation Engineer at Dura-Pack. “Gummie packaging can be difficult and problematic to automate. The Abacus+ system handles, counts, and sorts each gummy and seamlessly integrates with our M7 pre-made pouch bagger to deliver a fully automated gummy packaging solution”.
