Omega Design Corporation – a global provider of packaging machinery, serialization solutions, and bottle unscrambling technology, has introduced its new Quantum Class Bandit Stretch Bander. It is an inline stretch bander capable of handling a wide range of cartons.

According to the company, the Bandit can process up to 300 cartons/minute and is easily integrated into new and existing packaging lines.

The Bandit is a part of Omega’s new Quantum Class of premium packaging equipment. Omega Design claims it offers a compact footprint and balcony-style design, and the Bandit allows for easy user access, product visibility, and modular add-ons.

Press Release: Omega Hosts Local Elementary School Children To Explain Class Concepts

Elementary students learn real world application of classroom concepts

Exton, PA – February, 2015 – The East Coventry 4th grade class took their 2nd annual field trip to local manufacturer Omega Design for fun and learning about how the six simple machines they study in class are used to build complex machines that make work easier for all of us. 

This tour was born out of a bring your parent to school day attended by Omega Design President Glenn Siegele.  Students were measuring the force and distance of various pulley configurations

The East Coventry 4th grade class learned how the simple machines they have been learning about in class are combined to produce more complex machines used everyday throughout the economy.  For this lesson they toured local machine automation company, Omega Design Corporation, going from station to station to see these simple machines in action.  Pulleys, levers, wedges, screws, inclined planes and wheels and axels make up the world of motion/ everything that moves.

Attending a bring your parent to school day, Omega Design President Glenn Siegele saw the 9 and 10 year olds measuring force and distance of various pulley configurations.  He told them that these concepts are used in the machines that his company builds.  An offer to tour quickly followed and their teacher jumped at the opportunity.  From the education perspective it’s extremely valuable to show kids how what they are learning is used in the world.  On the company’s side, the importance of being a responsible community partner and to work towards developing a larger, more interested, and better trained workforce were prime goals of the event.  A win, win for everybody involved.

At one station the students competed with a bottle unscrambling machine to see how fast they could place bottles on a conveyor.  The Bottle Unscrambler employed all the simple machines to produce a more efficient operation.  The children were thoroughly engaged and a chorus of “woh” and “cool” sounded when the machine turned on.  It’s difficult to reproduce an experience like that in the classroom.  Another station the students used a lever to punch a hole in a thick plastic material.  They saw how many different ways screws were used to move heavy pieces of metal or register equipment, and even in their safety glasses.  An emphasis on safety backdropped the hands on learning experience.

Omega President, Glenn Siegele, “What an opportunity to participate with the education community to help advance learning of technical subjects that include some real world applications of what they are learning.”  A teacher added, “It was great to offer the students a way to learn that was fun and different.”
