Adhesive dispensing robots apply adhesives in automated systems. Depending on the dispensing station or cell, one- or two-part adhesives are applied. Manual load and unload robotic systems include XYZ and six-axis robots.
An XYZ dispensing robot dispenses adhesives and sealants in a variety of applications including bonding, encapsulating, molding, and potting. A bench top station features a horizontal frame on which the robot slides. The user loads adhesive into the dispenser, and the robot moves along the frame during the application cycle. A two-station XYZ cell features two robots to increase productivity. Different adhesives can be dispensed on to one part, or adhesive can be applied to two separate parts in the same cell.
A six-axis dispensing robot features high-performance, precise bead placement. A six-axis robot moves more freely than an XYZ robot. During the dispense cycle, the robot applies adhesive away from the purge position. A light curtain works as a safety precaution; if interrupted, the robot stops immediately.
