automatic adhesive dispensing
& part insertion
This rig was designed to
handle two cast heat exchangers, It is an example of an automatic adhesive machine.
The machine automatically applied adhesive and inserted core plugs, one at a time, into
ten machined holes. The single part anearobic adhesive was applied to the inside of
the hole before the plug was inserted.
The operator loads the casting to this
platform, where it indexes from the gluing head to the press tool. Holes 1 through 5
are filled, the casting rotates 180 degrees and holes 6 through 10 are filled.
Including load and unload, the machine cycle is 120 seconds.
This is another example of TQC's experience in automatic adhesive
dispensing. This adhesive was a two part mix supplied from 210 litre drums which had
to be kept at a controlled temperature. The dispensing gun mixed the constiuents in
the required proportions before being deposited as a gasket pattern to the part.
Aswell as the X-Y motion from the table, the dispenser moved in the vertical and tilted to
gain access to restricted areas.
