Nordson EFD, a Nordson company, the world’s leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, introduces the new R Series 4-axis automated fluid dispensing system featuring TeachMotion proprietary, specialized software for market-leading repeatability and optimal precision in fluid placement and positioning.
Unlike other benchtop robots on the market that are retrofitted for dispensing, the R Series system is designed specifically for automated fluid dispensing applications. Its proprietary TeachMotion software offers a simplified user interface for faster setup and ease of use via a Teach Pendant, enabling users to program complex dispensing patterns, such as dots, lines, circles, arcs, compound arcs, and patterns on different planes, in minutes.
R Series systems also feature best-in-market repeatability (+/- 8 micron/micrometer), built-in tip recalibration, and true three-dimensional motion control to ensure the most accurate deposit placements every time.
The R Series is a standalone system ideal for 4-axis fluid dispensing applications in markets ranging from automotive and life sciences to electronics and general industry. It provides faster cycle and batch times, greater setup and programming efficiency, reduced material costs, and seamless integration into any manufacturing operation, including in-line transfer systems, rotary tables, and pallet assembly lines.
The introduction of the R Series is part of EFD’s initiative to “meet different industries’ manufacturing requirements for precision dispensing with focused automation solutions for accurate, repeatable deposit positioning placement,” says Kelvin Fernandez, Global Product Line Manager, Nordson EFD.
“Our involvement in automation is in direct response to the growing need to be more productive by increasing throughput and first pass yields, while decreasing part reject limits. Maintaining specifications on parts and components that are continuously being miniaturized makes it difficult and tedious for manual operations,” Fernandez says.
“That’s why our automated fluid dispensing systems are strictly focused on enhancing the repeatability, accuracy and increased reliability of applications to place small amounts of fluid in the right place of a part or component; in other words, the perfect dispense.”
