The specially designed computer-controlled calibration unit is a semi-automatic machine for adjusting volumetric flasks and measuring cylinders. The adjusting medium is distilled or demineralised water in accordance with ISO 3696 quality 3.
Volume check of volumetric flasks and cylinders
The machine consists of one station and can be expanded by a second station, which can be controlled from the same computer. The operator loads a volumetric measuring flask/graduated cylinder onto the station and pushes a button to activate the station. During the calibration process a defined amount of water is filled into the volumetric vessel and a high precision camera system searches automatically the meniscus and a marking will be set (automatic meniscus detection). When a cycle is completed, the operator removes the adjusted volumetric flask or cylinder from the station. The next one is then loaded onto the station and the calibration process is repeated. The marking will be performed from the calibration unit by a pen as a line or a ring mark. Depending on the ordered equipment the marking can also be made with ceramic paint or by means of a grinding wheel.
The system is common with the latest CE-standards and conceived for production purposes. The scope of supply includes start-up and training for the system at Bronnbach Branch (For destinations in the European Union and Switzerland: at the customers plant) for a duration of five days. A manual will be provided which includes e. g. installation, setup for job changes and maintenance requirements.
This general description is according to the standard of March 2014. We make constant efforts to improve and to adapt the machine to the latest state-of-the-art. Therefore it is possible that this description slightly deviates from the actual supply of the machine.
On the customer’s request the machines will be modified to suit the individual aspects desired.
