DISPENSE WORKS INC.: Dispensing System

The Dispense Works RP Robot is available with a completely integrated RTV silicone dispensing system. A standard piggyback caulk tube holder now allows users to place the tube inside and twist the endcap to lock and pressurize the system. The included high-pressure valve automatically dispenses material over products in a controlled geometry. Parts remain stationary, which makes fixture simple as the valve moves from overhead in X/Y and Z dimensions.
