Smaller quantities of glue, liquids and others require high precision dosing, both in terms of quantity and position
With the right dosing equipment, you get accurate results. For some tasks, it is sufficient to dispense the product directly from the bottle or cartridge onto the surfaces to be assembled. In other situations, more precise and automated dosing is needed.
There are many ways to achieve a precise dosage. Handheld applicators are a simple dosing where you get reduced waste and contact with the items. The systems are designed for manual workstations for one employee. This method is suitable for dosing dots, droplets or strings of low to mid-range materials. For example, a hand pump may be useful for application where it is advantageous to be independent of feed lines to the product from, for example, a pressure tank.
Semi-automatic dosing systems are designed for integration into automated assembly lines and can be activated externally via a PLC or robot controller. These systems are well suited for dosing microdots, dots, drops or strings of low to high viscosity materials.
Fully automatic dosing equipment
In many cases it is worthwhile to use a robot mounted with tools / pumps for dosing and application. These systems are usually what we call a turn key solution. With our wide selection, experience and creativity, we help you find the right dosing equipment and provide unique adhesive application solutions.
Aplica distributes dosing equipment from both, Techcon, Loctite, Cyberbond, Acuity ™ and Graco.
The right dosing equipment makes the difference
Using suitable equipment for glue dosing, you get the most from the products you use - for optimum efficiency. You do not only save time and money with the right dosing equipment, you are also a step closer to running a 'greener' business - using less.
We often see that our customers reduce the cost of consumables considerably by dispensing with a robot, as the robot's movements and dosing speed are closely synchronized via a special interface. The synchronization ensures that only the right amount of glue is dosed on the part. The result is a more homogeneous and stronger product with a lower cost.
