LIQUID CONTROL: Precision Dispensing Technology

August 16, 2004
Liquid Control now offers 1053 Micro Melt precision dispensing technology for applying hot melt and PUR adhesives, as well as other single component solid materials requiring heat for dispensing. The patent pending 1053 Micro Melt positive displacement and controlled flow precision dispensing valve will be interfaced with their C-450 motion platform for turnkey operations at the Liquid Control booth (#537) at the Assembly Technology Expo, Sept. 28-30, at the Donald D. Stevens Convention Center in Rosemont (Chicago), IL. The 1053 Micro Melt precision valve utilizes proven rod displacement metering technology to provide extreme flow rate repeatability and accuracy from part to part. Depending on metering rod selection, the valve is capable of dispensing volumes from 0.002cc's to 3.6cc's of material. A servo drive motor allows for bead extrusion as small as 1 mm in diameter from the smallest of bonding applications. Individual closed loop heat zones optimize the hot melt/PUR temperature from the on-board feed cartridge to the metering rod and out to the point of dispense, while protecting the adhesive from overheating and premature aging. Maximum processing temperature is 375 degrees F.
