Dispensing with 6-Axis Robots

Posted by Maureen Redmond on Jan 7, 2021 2:04:36 PM

Dispensing by means of 6-axis robots is an efficient platform for various dispensing applications, when a 3-axis tabletop robot does not provide the flexibility required.

Software options are available to allow for path following of  3D CAD models or sketch patterns within a 3D model. Product models can be inserted into a simulated robot environment so that dispensing simulations can be generated offline. This enables the programmer to verify any axis limitations or collisions without taking the actual robot offline and prevents downtime of production.

Dispense verification options are also available to ensure proper dispense bead width tolerances are met, alert upon dispense failure, or for traceability requirements. Bead reconstruction or repair can be done on the spot to prevent product waste and down time.

Benefits of Non-Contact Jet Dispensers

Posted by Maureen Redmond on Oct 20, 2020 11:12:30 AM

A relatively new development in the world of fluid dispensers, the non-contact jet dispenser uses a jetting mechanism to drop fluids from a distance on to the substrate, so that the nozzle never touches the surface of the product. Jet dispensing is performed by high speed dot pulsations from the nozzle, therefore dot dispensing as well as connecting these dots to form line dispensing can be achieved.

These jetting solutions are developed by Musashi Engineering. Though relatively new in the U.S. market, Musashi Engineering is a global leader in fluid dispensing systems for industrial automation, and their product developers have fine-tuned their dispensers to provide the highest accuracy and lowest product rejection rates possible.


See some applications of the jet dispenser in this video. 

The guide below goes over some of the unique benefits the jetting systems can bring to the table, and also the various jet dispenser models available.
