Gantry style robot aids adhesive dispensing

Low cost versatile robots are becoming increasingly popular in the manufacturing environment and the latest Fisnar F5200N gantry model offers huge flexibility for dispensing operations, according to supplier Intertronics, especially in applications such as form-in-place gaskets, adhesives, potting, coating and filling.

The strength of the F5200N lies in its ability to create its own working area, enabling the system to be mounted on any work surface. The system is suitable for use on any type of platform requiring a gantry type mounting with open access under the robot. It is also ideal for conveyor fed automation or can be installed in work cells operating as a slave robot, allowing users to create their workstation.

Intertronics point out that the robot comprises a control module, a teach-pendant and an articulated-gantry. The F5200N has a working area of 200 x 200mm with a resolution accuracy of 0.001mm.
Using the teach pendant, the dispensing robot supports windows compatible dispensing software and can store and retrieve up to 100 programs.
