Robotic Cartridge Filling Workstation (with Pump)
– Lab Society
A cartridge 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).
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
- 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.
- 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 for $285 each
