Simplimatic® Robotic Fluid Dispensing Cell

Simplimatic Automation designs, manufactures, and integrates a variety of custom robotic automation systems, including our automated gasket application system. This modular robotic cell provides manufacturers with a simple in-line solution to automate the repetitive and potentially toxic process of weatherproofing assemblies and housings.

This customizable system utilizes one or more multi-axis robots to remove assemblies and housings from table-top, edge belt, or mat-top conveyor and apply gasket material using a Nordson®, Loctite®, or customer specified fluid dispensing head according to project specifications.

Simplimatic can utilize the following robots for this application:
  • Fanuc LR Mate 200iC
  • Fanuc CR-7iA
  • Fanuc CR-4iA
  • Other Multi-Axis Robots

This multi-axis gasket dispensing robot supports multiple recipe types allowing manufacturers to easily accommodate multiple SKUs on a production line.

Description

Simplimatic’s Robotic Fluid Dispensing system easily applies liquid gaskets to a variety of metal, plastic, and composite material enclosures. The chemical composition of the liquid gasket can be modified based on customer preference.

Depending on project requirements, the Simplimatic® fluid dispensing cell can utilize either fixed position dispensing, or vision guided dispensing. The application method depends greatly on housing geometry or gasket application complexity.

This robotic cell is available in single or tandem robot configurations depending on line speed and gasket complexity.
