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 entire dosing control system with the IRC5 robot controller. Utilizing the IRC5’s internal trajectory motion planning, precise dispensing – up to 96 ml/s at robot speeds of up to 1000 mm/s – is now possible. Using a double doser, it is possible to apply materials as long as desired.
Completely integrated solution
The ABB Integrated Dispensing Function Package includes a complete set of dispensing components such as electrically driven dosers, applicators, hoses, material temperature conditioning units and, when necessary, pumps for material supply. All control logic is integrated into the IRC5. The system automatically takes the available information into account and can control as many as four dosers. These dosers can run individually, in tandem for continuous application, or in collaboration for 2k application. A vision system can be incorporated for positioning and quality control.
