Matrix 5051 Overview

The Matrix 5051 Cut & Vial System offers a unique and proprietary high-speed technology for the cutting and placing of diagnostic test strips into vial housings of various sizes. You can easily program the number of strips to place in each vial as well.


The color touchscreen operator interface panel continuously displays real time production tracking, system and material status, calibration screens, and system parameters, as well as troubleshooting and warning screens.


Utilizing Kinematic Automation’s proprietary high speed technology, the Matrix 5051 allows for rapid production, long blade life, precise control of strip width, all on the most demanding materials. Reject detection and elimination is fast and efficient ensuring only good strips get placed in vials.
