SEALANT EQUIPMENT & ENGINEERING: Shot Meter

June 1, 2008

Sealant Equipment & Engineering, Inc.’s new Servo-Flo® 401 Series servo-motor drive meter system is designed to apply small precision beads and small precisely metered shots of adhesives, sealants or lubricant materials from 1 to 8.5 cc’s in robotic and manual dispensing applications. This new electric meter is engineered to dispense thixotropic and cohesive materials such as one-part silicones, epoxies, urethanes and heat or ambient cure materials. The all-new design incorporates the company’s trademark Servo-Flo design of positive rod displacement precision metering of fluids in a small, lightweight meter.

Servo-Flo 401 motor design provides precise and repeatable precision bead profiles and variable-flow-rate metered shot volumes. It improves production rates and product quality, and reduces manufacturing costs in adhesive, sealant, and lubrication dispensing applications.

The Servo-Flo 401 control is designed to provide a variety of preset material-dispensing profiles and will dispense different precise material volumes for various part configurations. The meter accepts flow-rate commands from automation controls or can be preset to vary the flow rate during dispensing. This feature varies the bead volume in gasketing, filling or potting applications in manual, automated and robotic dispensing manufacturing processes.

Servo-Flo 401 meter systems are used to dispense one-part materials for bonding, gasketing, coating, potting and sealing applications in aerospace, appliance, contractor, defense, electronic, filter, marine, medical, sporting goods, automotive, trucks and bus assembly dispensing applications.
