Fluid Dispensing Systems


Fluid Dispensing Systems

Fluid Dispensing Systems  for the controlled application of liquids, adhesives, pastes, gels, epoxies, sealants, greases, lubricants, inks, paints and primers. Fluids are applied without mess, waste or inconsistency. Thick pastes are easy to dispense without strain or fatigue to hands. Timed dispensers will reduce the amount of adhesive used by quickly applying a precise and repeatable deposit each time. Reduce assembly time by eliminating guesswork. Select from non timed manual dispensers to digital timed and positive displacement systems.

For beads or non-timed deposits of most fluid, use a non-timed dispenser when a critical repeat deposit is not required. These systems run from an air supply and provide a simple method of dispensing to replace manual methods such as squeeze tubes, brushes or swabs. Adjustable air-control to set the flow rate. Quick vacuum exhaust to eliminate drips. Models such as TS924 or TS924V.

For beads or repeat timed deposits of fluids and pastes, use simple analog timed dispensers will handle watery liquids to thick pastes. The timer control is adjusted on the front of the machine using a timer knob. These systems are ideal for setting a deposit and making repeat shots each time the foot pedal is pressed. Most have a vacuum suck-back to prevent liquids dripping. Models such as TS9150, ADL810, ADL100.

For beads or repeat micro deposits of fluids and pastes, the latest development in bench top dispensers sees the digital timers with LCD display providing more accuracy and control than the analog. Systems available with shot counter, teach mode, timer memory storage and I/O connectivity if automating a process. All the dispensers feature vacuum suck-back to prevent liquids dripping. Models such as 1000T, TS250, TS350.

For controlling dispense valves, sophisticated digital valve controllers for operating all valves including diaphragm, needle, spool, spray and rotary auger. For operator control with foot switch or when linking to a PLC via the I/O. Controllers ensure the valve is operated rapidly and consistently. A universal controller is available that will run any type of dispensing valve from the same machine.

Air-free dispensing systems for beads or dots. A range of dispensers that do not require compressed air to dispense fluids. Use a peristaltic pump motor driven dispenser for handling watery liquids including Cyanoacrylates, UV cure, Solvents and Primers. Liquid is drawn from the glue bottle, down flexi-tubing and through the wand. Repeat deposits or beads.

Adhesive Dispensing Equipment


Adhesive Dispensing Equipment

High quality blended cyanoacrylate adhesive surface insensitive fast cure produces rapid bond between a variety of materials including plastics, rubbers, metals, paper, card and leather.

This adhesive can be applied using our syringe barrel dispensers or direct from the larger bottles using our metering valves, controller and pressure pot. All CAs are shipped with TDS and MSDS.

 

Dispense Valves


Dispense Valves

Precision dispense valves provide accurate deposits of adhesives, solvents, glues, silicones, sealants, pastes, gels, inks, paints, UV cure, lubricants and grease. Feed from syringes, cartridges or pressure pots. Valves will cycle from 500 to 600 times per minute for repeatable and fast dots. Use valves for bonding, sealing, coating, gasketing and potting applications.

Valves operate with minimal maintenance, ensuring clean and accurate dispensing whether used by hand, on a production line or mounted to an XYZ robot. A typical system includes a dispensing valve, pressure pot or cartridge feed used with a TS250, TS350 or TS500R digital controller.

Pinch tube valves are air operated, maintenance free for applying most low to medium viscosity liquids. Adhesives such as Cyanoacrylate, UV cure, anaerobics, solvent based, PVA as well as assembly fluids, primers, activators, inks and oils. These valves are easy to use, versatile and low cost. Even two-part mixed epoxies can be dispensed with pinch tubes easy to replace.

Diaphragm valves are air operated for use with Cyanoacrylate, UV cure, glues, primers and liquids. Use witn low to medium viscosity fluids. A small flexible disc flexes to allow liquid to flow. Rapid shut off, these valves are ideal for rapid, repeat shots. A compact valve, these are easy to mount multiple valves on automated assembly applications. 

Needle valves are used with UV cure, inks, water based liquids, etc. They have the shut off point close to the dispense tip to reduce dead space and prevent drips. Ideal for rapid, small shots.

Spool valves use a wide fluid inlet and outlet for viscous gels, silicones, sealants and grease. The piston shuts off against the flow to create a snuff back. Used for high pressure feeds from pumps and viscosities up to 1 millions cps.

Spray valves are low air, low volume precision applicators for marking, coating, lubricating parts. They can spray down to areas just a few millimetres with either a round or oval fan pattern. Total control over shot pulse, fluid pressure and atom pressure reduce overspray and waste.

Auger valves are motor driven to dispense volumetric deposits of solder pastes, gels, premixed epoxies, etc. Total accuracy without deposit variation from material cure or temperature change. 

All products are CE approved and supported with expert technical advice and spares, accessories held in stock. Please contact us for our dispense valve brochure or visit adhesivedispensing.co.uk.

Dispensing Tips


Dispensing Tips

We offer the widest range of dispensing tips for use with syringe barrels, applicator guns, dispense bottles, metering valves and XYZ robots. Our tips are industrial grade safe for use to 100 psi fluid pressures and are certified silicone-free. With luer lock hub secure attachment for leak-free dispensing.

Tips are colour coded for easy identification. Packs show batch codes.

Smooth flow tapered tips are recommended for thick grease, silicone RTVs, solder pastes, braze pastes, UV cure adhesive gels, Cyanoacrylate gels, etc. Tne tapered design allows viscous materials to flow without restriction and so reduce pressure and improve flow rates. In gauge sizes 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25 and 27. Plastics are UV filtered and feature a doible helix luer lock thread. 1.25" total length. 

General Purpose tips have a colour coded UV filter plastic hub to a stainless steel tube. In lengths of 0.25", 0.50"' 1.0" and 1.5". Suitable for most liauids, adhesives and gels. Gauge sizes 14 to 32. Also available with 45 or 90 degree bends.

TS Crimped tips have a plastic hub to stainless steel tube. In lengths of 0.5" or 1.0" only and gauge sizes 14 to 30. These tips have an aluminium crimp to join the tube to the hub so are ideal for solvent based adhesives or more aggressive liquids. 

Aluminium Hub tips in lengths of 0.5", 1.0", 1.5" and 2.0". Gauge sizes 14, 15 and 16. Luer lock hubs. Silver colour. For very aggresive solvent based adhesives that could normally attack plastics.

Teflon Lined Crimped tips for Cyanoacrylate adhesives. 0.5" or 1.0" lengths. Gauge sizes 21, 25 or 27. A teflon tube is crimped inside a metal tube. This allows CA adhesive to be dispensed without clogging.

Benchtop Robots


Benchtop Robots

Benchtop robots provide total control over adhesive placement -- from controlled beads, lines, arcs and circles to repeat timed dots and potting products. Programming is simple via the teach pendant. Even complex patterns can be created quickly. Storage is to internal memory allowing for up to 255 different programs to be created or unlimited with option windows software.

Using our benchtop robots, high speeds are achieved reducing time spent hand applying adhesives and other fluids. Accuracy of placement and volume of fluid ensures absolute zero waste, no mess and a guaranteed nil error rate. Robots are totally reliable whatever the application and are simple to program and operate at high speeds. For UK customers, a sales engineer will deliver and assist with programming and installation.

Packaging


Packaging

Transferring of adhesives, silicones, epoxies and other liquids from cans, cartridges, drums or bottles can be time consuming, messy and wasteful. Additionally, many liquids contain harmful fumes. ADL packaging solutions ensure customers receive their specified materials in the syringe or cartridge of their choice. Most single and two-part adhesives, silicones, epoxies and liquids can be supplied air-free in ready-to-use dispensing components.
