Evaluating Fluid Dispensing | Making the Change from Manual Squeeze Bottles to Benchtop Precision

The ability to deposit precise amounts of material is an ever-increasing necessity for manufacturers, particularly when assembling electronics and medical devices. Methods available for dispensing adhesives, epoxies and a multitude of other fluids cover a wide spectrum of techniques from manual applications like squeeze bottles, toothpicks and hand-plunger syringes to semi-automated tabletop dispensing robots.

In this white paper, Vlad Konopeklo explores the switch from manual squeeze bottle dispensing to benchtop fluid dispensing.

Topics Covered:

  • Fluid Dispensing and Production Capacity
  • Manual Methods
  • Precision Fluid Dispensing
  • Air-Powered Benchtop Dispensers
  • Positive Displacement Dispensers
  • Fluid Considerations
  • What to look for in Benctop Dispensing Components
  • Syringe Barrels
  • Pistons
  • Dispensing Tips
  • Tip Caps and End Caps

Automated Sealant Dispensing Provides IP65 Rated LED Lens Seal and Production Efficiencies

In this case study Techsil provided emergency LED lighting manufacturers, Mackwell Electronics, with an automated solution for dispensing a clear, fast curing, 1-part silicone sealant with a Nordson Performus™ III benchtop dispenser, to seal a clear plastic lens in an emergency luminaire housing. This provided an accurate, reliable IP65 rated seal, improved productivity and the system installed can be adapted to suit other in-house bonding applications.
