Feedback From Our Customers
Our recently released software platform increases the daily output of Vape-Jet by up to 30% with faster processing, more efficient operation and improved settings integration. By reducing the time between cartridge alignment and filling by more than half, the upgrade makes it possible to fill a tray of 100 1g cartridges in as little as 4 minutes. Learn more on our blog.
Center Post Avoidance
You’ll never have to pre-inspect vape cartridges or worry about defective ones going out the door again with Vape-Jet’s intuitive Center Post Avoidance. Our machine vision easily detects and avoids bent center posts and can even be configured to flag or skip over vape cartridges that are out of specification.
Vape-Jet can accommodate a myriad of product attributes and vape cart styles, including pods, syringes, capsules, and sauce jars. Able to save up to 1,000 different configurations, Vape-Jet is a master of efficiency, allowing each configuration to be easily loaded or updated as needed. Switching between different profiles and products has never been so simple.
Track batches, analyze cartridge filling operations, and even view pre- and post-fill inspection photos with Vape-Jet’s robust data reporting and traceability features. Take the guess work out of your cart-filling operation knowing you can track every cart filled by Vape-Jet.
Machine Vision Alignment
The Vape-Jet sees things that no other machine can. Our patent-pending machine vision alignment system analyzes whole trays of vape cartridges, aligns the needle overhead, and precisely fills each one to the optimal level. Our optional Center Post Avoidance feature can even identify if center posts are bent or damaged, eliminating the need for pre-inspection and alignment.
Included in the latest iteration of the Vape-Jet, machine operators have full access to the control panel from an ultra-responsive 11.8″ touchscreen interface built in to the front panel of the machine. Fill cartridges, adjust settings, follow guided operating procedures and monitor progress without a secondary device.
Need to monitor your Vape-Jet from elsewhere in your facility? Operate the machine remotely from any internet-capable device, including MacOS and Windows desktops, laptops, tablets via ethernet cable. You can even operate multiple Vape-Jet machines from a single device, allowing a single operator to run up to five machines at once.
We are constantly working to improve Vape-Jet’s software based upon direct customer feedback. We are regularly adding new features, custom modifications, and software updates to ensure your machine runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Do you have a custom feature or crazy idea? Let us help you build it!
Purposefully designed and built with cannabis in mind, precisely control the temperature of your oil with 3 independently-programmable heat zones. Preserve terpenes and reduce the degradation of your distillate, rosin, CO₂, and other extracts. Our proportional-integral-derivative (PID) algorithms eliminate any temperature variation and preserve the overall quality of your products. The nitrogen-pressurized fluid path not only reduces oxidation but allows for the lowest operating temperatures of any filling system.
Precision is the name of the game. Our third-party calibrated and certified pumping mechanism can quickly and accurately dispense between 0.001ml and 5.0ml into your vape cartridges, pods, or capsules. Never worry about fill volume and cleaning up spills again.
Clean in Place
Cleaning the Vape-Jet is quick and easy with our Clean in Place procedure. Using only 200ml of alcohol, the cleaning wizard will get your Vape-Jet clean and dry for a new batch with a few clicks. The full cleanup process takes less than 10 minutes and is almost entirely automated.
Direct to Tray Filling
Eliminate the need to manually transfer cartridges into and out of a jig. Thanks to our machine vision alignment system, Vape-Jet can automatically fill carts as shipped in vertically packaged foam trays. Simply unbox the cartridges, place the foam tray into the Vape-Jet, and start filling.
Safe Fluid Path
We ensure that your oil and products only touch the highest quality and safest materials available. The Vape-Jet fluid path is made entirely from fluoropolymers, Viton, Borosilicate glass, stainless steel, and ceramic. Swagelok fittings are used for all compression fittings and the pump dispensing valve is made from precision machined ceramic-on-ceramic without any lubricants or gaskets.
Have a question while operating Vape-Jet? Our help desk is accessible via the Vape-Jet built-in touch screen, remote interface and our website. Once a ticket is submitted, one of our dedicated support technicians will be in touch as quickly as 15 minutes and always same business day. Our engineers can also remotely view your system configurations, operation data, and error logs, in order to quickly troubleshoot issues on the fly. Rest assured; you’re never flying alone.
Customer Success Stories
Growing Together with C3 Industries
C3 Industries‘ experiences with older Vape-Jet models informed several of the upgrades and changes in the 3.0 they’re running now. As both a witness to—and an integral part of—our evolution as a company, C3’s loyalty to our products is the best endorsement we could receive.
Doubling Daily Output with Terrapin
Reaching average fill speeds of three and a half minutes for 50 0.5g cartridges (and four minutes for 50 1g cartridges), Terrapin has doubled their daily production volume with half of the labor cost by upgrading to a Vape-Jet fully-automatic cartridge filling machine.
Production Boost with True North Collective MI
True North Collective gave their filling operation a major overhaul when they invested in both Vape-Jet and Jet Fueler filling machines. They increased their daily filling numbers by 200% while reducing the labor dedicated to filling and caping by roughly 80%, allowing them to refocus those team members from hand filling to other tasks.
Scaling Up with Fernway
Starting out with a single Jet Fueler unit and a folding table, Fernway has grown their brand to become a household name in the Massachusetts market while growing their operation to include four Vape-Jet fully-automatic filling machines side by side within their facility.
Growing Brands with Blue Box Brands
Chris Michaud relies on Vape-Jet filling machines whether he’s filling cartridges and disposables for his own in-house brands like Ration, or building out a facility for a partner brand under the umbrella of Blue Box Brands.
Ask an Experienced Vape-Jet Operator
One of our earliest customers and most loyal brand reps, Demetre (James) Martin of Natural Roots answers important questions about the Vape-Jet experience of increasing throughput without increasing labor.
Filling vape cartridges by hand is nearly impossible to do accurately, and incredibly expensive. Including payroll taxes (6.2% for Social Security and 1.45% for Medicare), it costs roughly $33,586.80 annually for an employee that makes $15 per hour. Doing the math, it’s clear to see that a fully automated filling system saves your operation from wasted expenses.
Vape-Jet can produce roughly 1 million cartridges annually. An employee filling cartridges by hand can only complete 260,000 per year. This equates to a per cart cost of $0.002 for the Vape-Jet, versus $0.13 for human labor. That is 65 times less labor cost per cartridge! The number of carts to break even here is approximately 250,000, and the return on investment is reached within 65 days.
