What Are Spiral Vending Machines?

Spiral vending machines are probably what most people picture when they think of a vending machine. This type of machine uses a tried and tested vend mechanism which is most often used to vend snack and drink products. These machine can be supplied as snack only or combi (snack & drink) versions. However, due to their flexibility and reliability they are also now commonly used to vend a wide range of non-standard vending items such as retail products and merchandise. The name 'spiral' comes from the steel spiral dispense mechanisms used inside the machine which hold the products, and once selected via the consumer, rotates to push the items forward until they drop from their shelf into the vend port.

The Basis of Our Recommendations

Our recommended machines have a proven reputation within the field and offer a versatile solution to meet clients' needs. Following many happy customers and successful real-world applications, these vending machines have shown themselves to offer the best value for money, both at the point of sale and throughout their lifetime. High flexibility allows the vending of a large range of products, with room for future customisation at a reasonable cost if you wish to change your product selection retrospectively. While this may still require an engineer visit, their relatively easy maintenance and low parts costs ensures the machines continue to offer great value well after the initial purchase.

Retrospective planogram changes on certain models can be extremely costly, so long term flexibility is really important for the majority of our clients who have never had a vending machine previously and don't know what will be their bestselling products prior to testing the machine in location for a number of months. Seasonal changes in consumer product trends are also common (i.e. more cold drinks are sold in summer months), so future flexibility should be a key factor when deciding on the best machine for you.

The machines below can also be supplied with a range of higher-end add on dispense aids, and it's amazing what can be vended with the right planogram configuration and testing. We offer consultancy and full planogram configuration and testing packages for clients with more challenging requirements. We can also advise regarding prime positioning within the machine to drive sales of your best selling product lines. Please contact us or visit our consultancy page for more information regarding these services.
