The new PGM metering system is a precision gear metering and dispense system for sealants and adhesives. The system, which consists of a positive-displacement gear pump and control center, provides a smooth and consistent bead dispense, even with high-viscosity materials. With high flow rates for both high-viscosity hot-melt materials and ambient materials, the PGM allows manufacturers to improve operational production capacities.

The system can be used to handle high production requirements for solar panel manufacturing applications such as polyisobutylene (PIB) perimeter seal, desiccant and silicone secondary seal. In addition, it can be used for handling urethane sealants for automotive windshield manufacturing and sealants for insulated glass in the fenestration industry. With a wrist-mountable design, the metering system can be mounted at the end of a robotic arm for an extremely accurate dispense. The system handles a range of low- to high-viscosity materials at high flow rates, including ambient, warm melt and hot-melt materials to 400°F (204°C).
