For Micro Quantities

Automated Dosing System Rolog

27.05.2018 AZO‘s new system Rolog automates the dosing process for micro quantities using a combination of new technology and established robotics.

Facts for Decision Makers:

  • 50 g to 10 kg
  • gram accuracy
  • round-the-clock

Until now, dosing of micro quantities up to 10 kg has mainly been carried out manually by an operator. Each component in a formulation has to be weighed by hand and fed into the current production process. This can cause problems for the operator and for product safety. It is for these reasons that the manufacturer has developed the new system. With this system, the raw materials are placed in storage or taken out of storage automatically by a robot. A purpose-developed device is responsible for dosing with gram accuracy.

The machine operator first ensures that the raw materials, such as pigments, additives, active agents etc., are available in dispensing and storage units ready for automated further processing. A safety cage now separates the automation area from the production environment.  The robot assembles the batch in accordance with the required formulation in a fully automated process by preparing the correct dispensing and storage units. At the dosing point, the required micro quantities are metered accurately from here. This achieves reproducible dosing results in a range from 50 g to 10 kg. After weighing all components into the target container, the latter is placed ready at a specific intersection for further processing.

Round-the-clock production is possible with constant provision of raw materials and receptacles. The system can be operated as a standalone system or it can be fully integrated.
