PORTLAND, Ore., June 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Thompson Duke Industrial, the leader in cannabis oil vaporizer device filling and capping equipment, is celebrating a significant milestone: the completion of its 1,000th MCF1 semi-automatic vaporizer filling machine.

"Hitting this milestone shows that there is an increasing need for efficiency and automation in the cannabis industry, and our growth as a company is directly tied to this demand," said Chris Gardella, Chief Technology Officer for Thompson Duke Industrial. "The ability to quickly adjust dispense volume, fill both high and low viscosity oils, rapidly switch oil formulations, and easily setup and clean the machine are all intentional design decisions behind the MCF1 that allow our clients to operate with extreme accuracy, precision and repeatability."

This milestone is a significant indicator of the maturation of the cannabis industry. As companies seek competitive advantages, they find the efficiency and accuracy that the MCF1 offers to be extremely valuable.
