Gluing and sealing technologies are steadily gaining importance as more and more complex components, made from a variety of materials, need to be combined. This new design trend is accompanied by a growing demand for quality, flexibility and productivity in the manufacturing process.
Automated robot stations can meet these requirements with the correct dispensing equipment and control structure. To do so, the robot and dispensing control system must be synchronized to ensure high performance and consistent quality. ABB’s Integrated Dispensing Function Package integrates the dosing control system with the IRC5 robot controller. Utilizing the IRC5’s internal trajectory motion planning, precise dispensing – of between 0.01 ml/s and 96 ml/s at robot speeds of up to 1000 mm/s and greater – is now possible.
