CSI Test Bed Vial Filling Cell

This system, installed at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, features state-of-the-art, never-before-used technology that will push the envelope for learning and applied research in years to come.

This test bed vial filling project took years to develop and could not have been completed without FANUC America, Rockwell Automation, and the many important partners involved. It will undoubtedly accelerate the upscaling of US manufacturing, and open people’s eyes to what digital manufacturing really is.
