Robotic dispensing as 'single push-button operation'

Multiple dispensing and curing applications rationalised

This automated robotic system enables the rationalisation of multiple, complex dispensing and curing applications into a single, push-button operation, saving time and increasing productivity, says Intertronics.

“Two preeflow eco-PENS, fed from 310ml cartridges, repeatably dispense volumetrically dosed materials onto parts with absolute control. Able to be programmed as a pair for simultaneous part processing, or separately, to carry out different dispensing applications, this set-up grants flexibility in a dispensing process,” says the company.

UV-curable adhesives, sealants and coatings

The dispensing equipment is mounted onto a Fisnar F4000 ADVANCE robot with a MX-250 LED UV flood curing lamp. “By operating these pieces of equipment in tandem with one another, this system can apply and cure UV-curable adhesives, sealants, coatings and other materials quickly, with a high level of accuracy.”

In this example, a customer’s material was supplied in 310ml cartridges,”but this system could easily be customised to support material in syringes, cartridges or bulk packaging”, adds Intertronics.

Integrated controls allow safe operation from the outside a free-standing enclosure, while the enclosure itself offers smoked glass for UV light safety and a dead switch, which activates if the doors are opened during operation. “Enclosures can be custom-designed to suit your production area layout and size.”

Features & benefits highlighted

  • High level of dispensing accuracy and precision: +/- 1%, >99% of the time, resulting in less material waste and fewer rejects
  • Curing material on the machine immediately after application reduces work in progress
  • Complete application and curing process without additional part handling
  • System provided fully configured and installed, with training provided to get the customer up and running quickly
  • Controls mounted immediately above the robot for easy access
  • Interlocked enclosure protects operators from moving parts.
