FLUID RESEARCH LTD.: Dispense Valve
The new Micro VRE valve from this company was reportedly designed for dispensing small shots and fine beads. With its independent stepper drives, users can program the shot size, flow rate and ratio selection with ease. The valve reportedly offers a high degree of accuracy and repeatability. The simple mechanical principle can provide high engineering precision and sophisticated control with minimal user intervention.
This valve can reportedly offer the ability to meter and mix materials directly at the point of dispense, eliminating potential material delivery issues, sometimes related with remote metering of small shots. Easy to use and easy to maintain, the valve weighs 4.5kg when dry, allowing it to be mounted directly onto a robot head for automated dispensing. The valve reportedly has the versatility required in a specialist production environment and can be used for applications such as electronic potting, encapsulating, coating, and bead laying.
