Product Description

The Vape-Jet is the economic answer to labor intensive and inaccurate cartridge filling.

The Vape-Jet merges a pharmaceutical-grade fluid handling system with advanced machine vision alignment. Software driven design allows for precise tuning on every aspect of operation, and full web capability allows you to control the system via any internet-enabled device. Configuration profiles can be easily created, updated and saved for different product types, allowing for quick and easy batch changes. Three independently controlled heat zones provide stable and precise temperatures, ensuring reliable and accurate fluid dispensing. Individual cartridge fill data reporting with photo verification provides traceability and quality assurance. Machine vision alignment allows fills direct to shipping trays, without the need to transfer into a jig. Our expert team of in-house engineers are available for support via live-chat, phone, and email. As your company and goals evolve, we will adapt with your vision. We create customized support and maintenance packages to align with current initiatives, and future growth.

Direct to Shipping Tray Filling

Machine vision alignment system allows you to fill cartridges directly in shipping trays, without the need to transfer to a jig for alignment. Simply unbox the cartridges, place on the Vape-Jet, and click the dispense button. The Vape-Jet will align to every cartridge before filling, without any operator intervention.

Pharmaceutical Grade Pump

Our state-of-the-art laboratory calibrated and certified pump can achieve the fastest possible dispense times. Programmable to dispense any volume from .001 ml to 5 ml.

Multi-Zone Heat Control

Three fully independent, electrically heated, PID controlled, and software configurable heat-zones allow for precise temperature control. Holding temperature, pump temperature, and dispensing needle temperature are all independently controlled. Temperature variations are eliminated using PID control.

Clean in Place

The Vape-Jet system can be fully cleaned in place using your choice of solvents. Simply fill the reservoir with your cleaning solution, and run the cleaning wizard through the GUI. The full cleanup process takes less than 10 minutes, and is almost fully software automated.

Safe Fluid Path

The Vape-Jet fluid path is made entirely from PTFE, PCTFE, Viton, Borosilicate glass, stainless steel, and ceramic. Swagelok fitting are used for all connections, and our pumping valve is precision machined from ceramics.

Powerful Software

The Vape-Jet is revolutionizing cartridge filling. As the most advanced system available, it is loaded with features, and every aspect of operation can be tuned and customized for maximum output.

Multiple Configurations

The Vape-Jet system is capable of saving 1,000 different configurations. A master of efficiency, the Vape-Jet system allows each configuration to loaded or updated as needed. Switching between different profiles is simple – and accommodates different product attributes and cartridge styles.

Machine Vision Alignment

Overall, the Vape-Jet eliminates the need for costly and time consuming manual labor processes, and reduces your labor costs. Using our patent pending machine vision alignment system, you can dispense directly into foam shipping trays. The machine vision system is fully software configurable, and is compatible with a wide variety of cartridges. Optional center-post avoidance detects the optimal fill location for every cartridge, and decreases labor needed for pre-inspection/alignment.

Data Reporting

Batch tracking and traceability are vitally important in today’s rapidly changing environment. Vape-Jet’s robust reporting and inspection capabilities are included out-of-the-box. Cartridge fill operations, and pre and post fill inspection photos can be recorded and viewed as necessary. 

Live Support

Help and support is built directly into the Vape-Jet interface. The GUI includes a live-chat window that connects you directly with the Vape-Jet engineer support team. Additionally, upon request, the Vape-Jet support team can remotely view your system configurations, run data, and error logs to quickly trouble-shoot any issues.

Web Based Interface

The Vape-Jet system can be operated from any modern device, including desktops, laptops, tablets and phones. Multiple Vape-Jet systems can be run from a single device – allowing a single operator to keep up to five machines going at full capacity.

Active Development

Every aspect of the Vape-Jet is software controlled, and continuing improvements are always available via an update process. The Vape-Jet team regularly adds new features and custom modifications to the software system – including those received as direct customer feedback.
