Many two-part adhesive materials are supplied in side-by-side cartridges, particularly in 50ml quantities. If you are using a material packaged in 50ml cartridges, the most likely associated dispensing method is a simple, manual dispensing gun. Manual dispensing guns are convenient and inexpensive. This is ideal if you are sampling a material or using it in small quantities or irregularly; however, on a production scale, manual dispensing can result in operator fatigue and/or repetitive stress injuries.
How can you use material supplied in 50ml side-by-side cartridges, in production quantities, while avoiding the pitfalls of dispensing with a manually-operated gun?
The Fisnar DTD50 50ml Catridge Dispenser is designed specifically for dispensing of materials from 50ml side-by-side cartridges. Whether the cartridge is a 1:1, 2:1, 4:1 or 10:1 mix ratio, the DTD50 operates pneumatically to push the material from the cartridge, through the mixing nozzle.
It partners with a dispensing controller of your choice to supply a timed shot of material onto your substrate. It can also be mounted onto a robot for full control of both the placement and dispensed quantity of your material. At less than £900 for a DTD50 and a dispensing controller (all you need to get started with semi-automated dispensing), this set-up offers quick return on investment, by providing more control and accuracy over dispensed amount, and less waste. It avoids repetitive stress injuries and operator fatigue associated with manual dispensing.
