Cyanoacrylate Dispenser Reduces Assembly Costs and Improves Bond Reliability

Press release date: May 08, 2002

East Providence, RI USA -- By allowing each user to apply the same amount of cyanoacrylate or "super glue" every time, EFD's 1500XL-CA dispensing kit eliminates adhesive-related waste, rework and rejects and improves bond reliability.

The 1500XL-CA is a tabletop dispensing unit that uses proprietary microprocessor circuitry and controlled air pressure to provide precise control over the amount of cyanoacrylate applied. All guesswork and variability are removed from the dispensing process, so that the user always applies a consistent amount of adhesive, whether bonding 1,000 or 100,000 parts. The dispenser also has a convenient "Teach" function that makes it easy to determine the best amount of cyanoacrylate to use for a specific application.

To contain fumes and prevent contamination, cyanoacrylate is contained in a disposable syringe reservoir that is connected to the dispenser console by a lightweight air line. The reservoir is fitted with a unique piston that improves adhesive control. Clog-resistant, TeflonĀ®-lined dispense tips provide trouble-free application of low viscosity cyanoacrylates.

Since moisture is a major concern for cyanoacrylate users, the 1500XL-CA includes a coalescing filter regulator to remove residual moisture from the air supply. Other items in the kit include a selection of dispense tips and a helpful guide to cyanoacrylate dispensing.
