Automated Fluid Dispensing Systems offer closed-loop encoding.

October 8, 2014

Designed to integrate into any manufacturing operation, PRO Series has smart vision CCD camera that captures detailed component part images and converts them into high-resolution digital files. PRO4L Series also includes laser height sensing that detects height variations on surface of product and makes corrections to dispensing height to prevent uneven deposits and tip/workpiece damage. With on-screen preview of dispensing path, DispenseMotion software facilitates set-up and programming. Read More

Clear, Flexible Piston reduces bounce for consistent dispensing.

August 5, 2014

Used to achieve consistent results when dispensing viscous fluids, Optimum® Clear Flex Piston is made from pliable material that allows inserted flexing under pressure. This creates tight seal between piston and barrel. Seal stops air from passing by piston and consequently prevents piston separation and pulsing (or bounce) during dispensing. Piston fits tightly enough into syringe barrel to maintain barrel wall wiping throughout dispensing cycle and thereby reduces fluid waste. Read More

Dispensing Valve improves productivity via modularity.

August 28, 2013

Suited for non-contact and contact needle dispensing of assembly fluids, PICO® xMOD™ Valve uses piezoelectric actuation technology for continuous operation at speeds of up to 500 cycles/sec. Deposits as small as 2 nL can be produced accurately at production speeds, and non-contact jet valve makes it possible to apply fluid in hard-to-access areas or onto uneven or delicate substrates. All 5 major components can be removed and exchanged within seconds, eliminating production downtime. Read More

Fluid & Gas Flow Equipment, Green & Clean

Dispense Valve deposits flux for photovoltaic industry.

July 17, 2013

Operating at speeds up to 500 Hz/sec, Square Wave™ 745NC deposits continuous lines of microdots on solder-coated metal ribbons that connect adjoining PV wafers. Solenoid technology minimizes process variation for repeatable dot-to-dot consistency, while low actuation speed of 2 ms prevents build-up of flux crystals on valve's nozzle which could prevent fluid from being deposited precisely on bus bar. With non-contact design, valve never touches delicate PV wafer, minimizing breakage and rejects. Read More
