Dispense Works Inc. offers automation solutions for vial, bottle filling, and capping with the Ring Dex robot, a fully programmable robotic dispensing system. This robot is reportedly ideal for small bottles, vials, and tubes, including pharmaceutical vial filling and stoppering.

The company reports that, 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 sizes of bottles, vials, caps, tips, and more.

The system requires no PC for operation and provides all preprogrammed software functions for filling, capping, assembly, and positioning. Hundreds of files may be stored on the machine, enabling quick changeovers to different volumes or positions by simply loading a new file.

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