The Bench Cat, manufactured in the U.S., is designed for automatically dispensing a variety of materials including adhesives, pastes, epoxies, sealants, etc. — as well as spray, fill, virtually any fluid from most valves and pumps. Even your existing handheld systems are easily added with the included universal valve / syringe mount. No PC is required for operation.
The Bench Cat’s logical design features a generous 14” x 10” work area with an overhead gantry which means your product remains stationary while the valve moves from overhead dispensing the media. This also results in less complicated fixturing and provides easy loading from top, front or sides. The removable pallet base streamlines tooling change over if required.
A built-in valve controller provides digital real time control of syringes & valves accurate to micro seconds. No external control box is required. Onboard inputs & outputs are included for handshaking with other equipment or integrating components such as vacuum, clamps, shuttles, etc.
The Bench Cat’s pre-programmed control system redefines the terms simple, easy and operator friendly. You will be dispensing in 2-D or 3-D within minutes using just a few simple 2 letter commands. Not simple enough? Included Jog & Teach function lets you define the dispensing path by jogging the dispenser with no programming or code entry involved. An optional Windows software package allows you to draw the dispensing path in any popular CAD software and it coverts it to motion. Now that’s simple. That’s the Bench Cat.
