Autojust® CAM - Calibrating volumetric pipettes

The specially designed computer-controlled calibration unit Autojust® CAM is a semi-automatic machine for adjusting volumetric glassware (volumetric pipettes, measuring pipettes and burettes (tubes)). The system measures the pipettes/burettes (tubes) volume by using demineralised water (in accordance with ISO 3696 quality 3)

Volume check of volumetric pipettes and burettes

The machine has one station and can be expanded by a second station, which can be controlled from the same computer. The stations can be operated by one person. The operator inserts a pipette/burette (tube) into the station and pushes a button to activate the calibration station. During the calibration process a defined amount of water is filled into the pipettes/burette and a high precision camera system searches automatically the meniscus and a marking will be set (automatic meniscus detection). When a station cycle is completed, the operator removes the calibrated volumetric glassware from the station, the next one is then inserted into 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 be also 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, set-up 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.
