The versatile Ring Dex—made in the USA—is a fully programmable robotic dispensing system that will automate vial and bottle filling. This robot from McHenry, Ill-based Dispense Works is ideal for small bottles, vials, and tubes and can be used for pharmaceutical vial filling and stoppering. 

Unlike traditional filling systems, the Ring Dex allows quick changeovers for low- to medium-volume production. The indexing ring is removable and the work stations feature quick release tooling to accommodate different size bottles, vials, caps, tips, etc.

This system requires no PC for operation, and provides all preprogrammed software functions for filling, capping, assembly, positioning, etc. Hundreds of files may be stored on the machine for quick changeover. Users can change over to different volumes or positions by simply loading a new file.

Functions are fully programmable for capping torque, nozzle stroke, weight, fill volume, and more. An onboard history file logs production data including file name, date/time stamp, quantity, and cycle times for each run, and includes copying and printing functions.

Laboratories can choose “off the shelf” or let Dispense Works customize a filling/capping solution to meet their unique needs. Many options include filling, tipping/capping, weighing, and packaging, including specialized solutions such as filling and capping of covid-19 test kit vials and test tubes. Several robotic dispensing systems are available including bench top models.

All of Dispense Works’ machines are entirely designed and manufactured in the company’s state-of-the-art facility in McHenry, Illinois.
