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.

In this case study Techsil provided a bespoke form-in-place foam gasket service to TRT Lighting to produce an IP rated seal for the lid of an outdoor lighting luminaire. The new process replaced a more time consuming manual application; the saved time allows for vital resources to be used elsewhere.
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.
