Labman custom system: Base paint dispensing system

Key features

Carousel-based designPerforms multiple actions simultaneously
Reduces RSI riskMinimal manual handling of paint and large paint tins
Pressure vesselAllows continuous flow of even the most viscous base paints
SealingLid press sealing to ensure an air-tight sealed lid
LiddingSimple pneumatic rotary cylinder and vacuum for easy picking and placing of the lids
WeighingWeighs the base paint dispense into the tin to +/- 0.5g


The base paint dispensing system automates the process of dispensing paint from a 20 litre barrel into either 250ml or 500ml QC tins. These tins are then lidded and sealed by two separate modules within the system. Each tin is weighed to ensure that the exact amount of paint is dispensed before lidding. The system is capable of dispensing into 24 QC tins loaded onto a carousel that is mounted on the robot bed. A pressure vessel is also used for more viscous paint, to help maintain a high throughput; 5 litre barrels can be used in this instance.
