Automation Devices’ Swan-Matic Division Sees Growth in Emerging E-Vapor Market

Posted on November 12th, 2013 at 9:23 AM

Automation Devices, Inc.’s (ADI) capping division, Swan-Matic, has recently seen an upwards trend in capping for e-vape liquid, or e-juice, which is an essential component of the electronic cigarette market. Typically packaged in 5, 10, 15 or 30 mL squeezable, dropper bottles, Swan-Matic offers effective capping solutions to increase efficiency, save costs while improving ergonomic conditions and reducing user fatigue.

Swan-Matic Project Manager Sean Parker has seen a significant growth in this market in the last several months. “This application is a great fit for a C530 electric handheld capper,” says Parker. “While a benchtop capper would be an acceptable alternative, the C530 would be easier to maneuver when capping such small bottles.”

According to an article in the Washington Times, “Annual e-cigarette sales have gone from $20 million five years ago to as much as $1.7 billion this year.”

“The electronic cigarette market doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon,” says Parker. “People that I speak to in the industry are expanding every day and are constantly looking for ways to streamline their business. Swan-Matic cappers offer them a cost effective way to do that.”

Swan-Matic is a division of Automation Devices Inc. and provides capping solutions and accessories designed for small to medium production runs to a wide variety of industries. A variety of handheld and bench-top cappers make up this product line along with aluminum driver shells and renewable inserts. For more information, visit or call 814-474-5561.
