QoW are a leading supplier of confectionery products to major cinema chains all over the world. HJC were asked to design an innovative cup dispenser module that could be easily installed into their new pic & mix cinema stores.
Speed and efficiency of service is essential within the point of purchase environment.
A universal full length spring and tapered plunger provides a constant ejection force across the cup canister, giving a rapid cup dispensing time. The elliptical front ABS cover minimises installation space with a concealed bayonet fixing method that vastly reduces assembly times.
Design for Manufacture
Capital investment was minimised by using composite injection mould tooling and stock extrusions. HJC Design optimised the mould tool to include inserts that created three sizes of TPE collars to expand for multiple cup sizes.
In order to reach food hygiene standards, the final injection moulded components were produced in food grade ABS.
