VIAL WEIGHING AND LABELLING SYSTEM
A versatile, bench-top robot designed to weigh and apply labels to numerous vial types
The Vial Weighing and Labelling System is a bench-top XYZ robot that weighs and applies labels to 10 different specified vial types.
Up to 11 racks of vials are loaded into the system by the user at the start of the run. Each vial is picked by the robot, labelled or its barcode scanned, then weighed. The weight of each vial is recorded in a .csv file saved on the system PC.
The system is controlled from an external desktop PC using software written by Labman specifically for this application.
The system performs the following individual functions:
• Weighing vials on a balance
• Printing and applying labels to vials
Vials are picked using a vacuum gripper with interchangeable heads
Integrated 5-place Mettler Toledo balance with interchangeable balance pans
Integrated SciPrint SOLO label printer from Scinomix with interchangeable vial rollers
Leuze 2D barcode scanner mounted to the X-Axis for easy barcode reading between process stages
Set of coloured “validation weights” to validate and track the balance accuracy during process runs
System is capable of processing 10 different vial types, these range from 50ml Centrifuge tubes down to 2ml glass vials
