2-K-DOS Metering, Mixing and Dispensing System
About 2-K-DOS Metering, Mixing and Dispensing System
The 2-K-DOS Metering, Mixing and Dispensing System accurately meters, mixes and dispenses two-component materials like potting compounds, encapsulants, casting materials and adhesives. The two components are precisely metered using gear pump technology, programmable from a simple control panel. The mix ratio, dispensing rate and dispensed quantity can be set-up quite accurately, providing consistent, error-free metering, mixing and dispensing. The control panel is menu-driven and password protected.
The 2-K-DOS is designed with a unique modular approach, for simple configuration and maintenance. Each machine is built to match your material and process, with appropriate material reservoir sizes and dispensing hose lengths. Reservoir options include agitation, heating and drying (the latter for moisture sensitive materials like polyurethanes).
Material is fed from the two integrated gravity-fed reservoirs through the gear pumps where it is accurately metered, through flexible hoses to a dispensing head. Industry standard static mixing nozzles are used for homogeneous mixing. The mixture is free of air bubbles.
This metering, mixing and dispensing system is configured for bench top operation, triggered by a fingertip switch or foot pedal. It can also be configured to work with automation for consistently dispensed amounts and accurate placement.
The 2-K-DOS Metering, Mixing and Dispensing System is able to process a number of materials including silicones, polyurethanes and epoxies.

See the 2-K-DOS as part of a real application in these dispensing and robotics Case Studies:
|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.
|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.
