DES MOINES, IA - U-Select-It has introduced Push-It, a new tray delivery system that allows operators to increase profitability by vending larger, high-margin products in rigid packaging like jars, bowls and boxes while providing operating efficiencies. Since it does not use coils to move products into vend position, Push-It allows for greater capacity per selection and is adaptable to a wide variety of premium items; it accommodates different types, sizes, weight and form factors.

For example, a USI’s Alpine 5000 Elevator cold food and beverage merchandiser equipped with PUSH-IT holds five 3.5” by 3.5” square 12 ounce jars of ready-to-eat cookie dough per selection, compared with only four jars fit per selection with a standard coil.  Likewise, with the smaller 2” diameter round 2-ounce jars of ready-to-eat cookie dough, nine jars fit per selection with PUSH-IT, while only eight jars fit per selection with a standard coil.

In addition, Push-It ensures that the product is always front-facing with the full front label visible, while with coils there is the possibility of the products rotating in the channel when the coil rotates during a vend cycle.

USI's Push-It delivery system is user-friendly and allows for flexible configuration. Since there are no coils, selections are easily and quickly reconfigurable without additional parts, and the device is reversible to accommodate extra-wide products. Push-It also enables a quicker restocking process than coils, and eliminates any missed or empty slots occurring during the restock process. Push-It is strong and durable, able to push up to 15 lbs. per selection or 30 lbs. with paired devices.

With clear gates replacing obtrusive coils, Push-It provides a more inviting product merchandising experience that consumers crave. Patrons can see the full products face-on, with no tilt or label obstruction, so they're able to better view the products and become informed by easily viewing the full-front package label.

"The Push-It tray system enables clients to vend a wide variety of packaging," said Jim Dillingham, president and owner, Vend-ucation (Dunbarton, NH). "In addition, they can instantly change selection configuration width at no expense and with no additional parts required. The absence of coils dramatically speeds up restocking, increasing productivity," .
