The Axis series from Dispense Works is an automated filling system designed to fill greases and pastes into cavities and onto components to very accurate and repeatable volumes. It is a suitable bench-top solution for low- to mid-volume applications and for use in research and design labs. Self-contained, the system does not require a PC for operation and includes a dual-memory processor with compact flash card. An intuitive menu-driven LCD/touchpad interface controls the machine and manages all internal files, requiring no programming experience. The system is LAN-network connectable as well as RS-232. It includes a bar-code reader input for recipe/file selection. Containers are processed on pallets so an operator may unload/load one pallet while the machine is filling the other. Available with different filling technologies including programmable auger valve, peristaltic pump, and programmable shot pump, it has a continuous-path pattern that may be dispensed in all three axes.
