Intertronics now offers the 2-K-DOS metering, mixing and dispensing system. The systems is a compact, benchtop system ideal for materials including silicones, polyurethanes and epoxies. The system offers a clean, efficient and accurate way to apply two-part materials in applications comprising electronics and LED potting and encapsulation, casting, form-in-place gasketing, sealing and adhesive dots and beads. Its unique modular design offers easy configuration and simple maintenance.
The system accurately meters the components employing gear pump technology, which is programmable from a simple control panel. Unlike other gear pump technology, it is conveniently sized for benchtop operation, which may be triggered by a foot pedal or fingertip switch. It can be configured to operate with automation to deliver both consistent dispensed amounts and accurate placement.
“The modular design means each 2-K-DOS machine is built to suit a customer’s process,” explained Kevin Cook, technical manager at Intertronics. “We can adjust features like the reservoir size and dispensing hose length for the application. Our customers can easily retrofit the system to suit their future requirements, for example, a change of material, and maintenance requirements are simple, as any part can be easily replaced if needed.”
“This compact, easy to use and adaptable machine complements Intertronics’ existing technology range,” added Cook. “It can be combined with either handheld dispensing equipment or Fisnar robots and can meter, mix and dispense many of the materials in our range.”
