Robotic Filling Workstation (with Pump)


– Lab Society

Cartridge Filling Machine

A filling machine you can absolutely rely on.

If you’ve been looking for an automated solution for filling your (distillate) cartridges, look no further. This robotic machine has a pump that delivers high-viscosity safely and with micro-liter accuracy into the cartridges.

Fills up to 156 cartridges per rack.

This workstation has up to 400mm of addressable space (depending on tray size) on both the X and Y axes and 50mm of stroke length in the Z-Dimension (up/down motion).

This robot is capable of filling a wide range of bottles or cartridges please contact us for more information if needed.

What’s included?


High Viscosity Pump

The patented pump delivers high viscosity reagents with microliter accuracy.

The all-stainless-steel pump has a built-in heater for the piston chamber, transfer lines, and material reservoir.

The pump includes a high-resolution, micro-stepping piston drive motor with encoder and pressure feedback. Monitoring the pressure on the piston provides microsecond resolution to know when the piston enters the fluid delivery chamber.

  • Includes all electronics
  • Includes micro-stepping Z motor driver
  • Software allows the user to specify the volume to deliver
  • Delivery accuracy is +-0.004 grams

Software

  • Operating software is written to the users’ specifications.
  • Basic functions of the software allow the user to control all elements of the pump system, including volume dispensed, dispense speeds, and system temperatures.
  • The PC graphical interface allows the user to specify the number of rack or cartridges to fill and provides a real-time graphical interface showing the status of the robot.
  • Software includes free modifications according to user requests.

Cartridge Racks

  • The user must supply 12 samples of the cartridge at the time the robot is ordered – in order to accurately make each rack.
  • Racks are custom milled to fit the users’ requested cartridge
  • Rack dimensions are 12” x 12” – and typically fit 144 to 156 cartridges per rack
  • Racks are made from white Delrin
  • Includes 4 custom racks
  • Additional racks can be purchased as a set of four for $1650.00
