Precision dispensing can really aid a manufacturing process by reducing waste, improving quality and increasing throughput. The customers featured in the case studies below did exactly that by
utilising adhesive dispensing systems for the medical device and security industries.
Potting compound and accurate, reliable dispensing for automotive lighting
Requiring a potting compound which could provide environmental protection to their high-powered outdoor LED lights, lighting manufacturer Venta Global selected IRS 3078 and a metering, mixing, and dispensing system to create a straightforward and repeatable process.
Potting a bespoke telematics system
Bulk Tainer Logistics required a material which offered ATEX certification and high levels of environmental protection to pot their sophisticated smart monitoring device. By utilising a 2-K-DOS metering, mixing and dispensing system and a flame retardant compound Bulk Tainer Logistics was able to establish an easy, robust, and repeatable process.
Improving accuracy, repeatability, and speed using jet dispensing
By automating production processes and upgrading their dispensing technology to a microdispensing jetting valve, water analysis technologies manufacturer, Palintest, improved their accuracy, repeatability and more than doubled throughput.
Automated dispensing system increases lighting manufacturer’s throughput fourfold
Automotive and marine lighting manufacturer, Venta Global, needed a material that offered high levels of environmental protection as well as a method of automating their gasking process. Choosing to implement Wacker N2199 and a dispensing robot into their process, Venta Global significantly improved the performance and throughput of their lighting assemblies.
Improving quality while maximising productivity in gas sensor manufacture
Seeking a way to automate a manual and time-consuming mixing, metering and dispensing process for their carbon monoxide detectors, DD-Scientific Ltd chose to pair a preeflow eco-DUO with a Fisnar ADVANCE robot for increased throughput and improved repeatability.
Reliable dispensing performance and component protection for measuring equipment manufacturer
SebaKMT, part of the Megger Group, was the world’s first owner of a preeflow eco-DUO450. For nearly ten years, this metering, mixing and dispensing system has been reliably and accurately dispensing their Wacker SilGel 612 silicone gel potting compound onto the parts for the noise measurement instruments they manufacture.
Electronic textiles development benefits from UV curing resin and precise dispensing
The Advanced Textiles Research Group at Nottingham Trent University has been developing electronic textiles to add functionality to materials and garments. Part of the process involves encasing microchips within a polymer micro-pod in order to protect them from mechanical and chemical stresses during everyday use.
Coatings expertise set to automate the aerospace industry
A leading UK aerospace company commissioned Astech Projects to build a bespoke Automated Masking System to mask complex areas of aircraft components in order to avoid precious metal coverage during the manufacturing process. Astech worked with Intertronics to incorporate precision volumetric dispensing, Dymax SpeedMask resin, and high intensity UV curing lamps.
Tidy workplaces and precise dispensing results for Franklin Electric
Franklin Electric, a leading international manufacturer of water and fuel pumps, needed to optimise their dispensing processes to reduce the waste of UV curing material during the application process. A preeflow eco-PEN450 provided the precise dispensing they were after.
preeflow precision dispensing system improves quality and reduces rejects of automobile parts
The automobile manufacturing industry places high demands on suppliers with regard to process reliability, quality and efficiency. To meet these challenges, a preeflow customer had to optimise his application of a two-part sealant to make a form-in-place (FIP) gasket through precision dispensing.
Automated sealant dispensing proves a winner for innovative golfing product
An automated sealant dispensing system provided consistent and reliable results in this wearable technology application.
Precision dispensing helps electrical manufacturer to reduce waste by improving quality and yield
By switching to an automated dispensing system, this electrical manufacturer reduced scrappage and therefore improved quality and yield of their product.
Automated dispensing helps security manufacturer increase throughput and quality
GJD Manufacturing switched to an automated method of dispensing silicone for sealing a plastic lens to aluminium housing. By doing this, they improved the throughput and quality of their white-light and infra-red LED illuminators for the security industry.
