Cyanoacrylate dispensing workstation offers higher output with less waste

Accurate, consistent application of cyanoacrylate can now be guaranteed with the Ultimus II dispensing workstation because of the low viscosity of the liquid supplied by the system.

The workstation dispenses the same amount of adhesive every time, which eliminates costly rework and cuts adhesive use an average of 50 %. The Ultimus II is an efficient, cost-effective alternate to squeeze bottles, hand syringes and other manual applicators, says manufacturer EFD International.

The Ultimus II Workstation eliminates variations in the amount of cyanoacrylate applied by using a precisely timed air pulse instead of guesswork to determine how much material is dispensed. For optimal control of thin fluids the system has a 0-1 bar pressure regulator, and uses a microprocessor-based digital timer with a resolution of four decimal places for control of deposit size.

Other features include simultaneous digital display of all dispensing parameters, programmable in 9 languages and a convenient Teach function that simplifies initial setup. Cyanoacrylate is dispensed from a syringe reservoir that can be held like a pen or mounted on an optional arm to leave the operator's hands free to position or assemble parts.
