Intertronics expands adhesive dispensing range to include 2-K-DOS

Adhesives supplier Intertronics now supplies the 2-K-DOS metering, mixing and dispensing system, a benchtop system suitable for materials including silicones, polyurethanes and epoxies.

The 2-K-DOS is said to provide a clean, efficient and accurate way to apply two-part materials in applications including electronics and LED potting and encapsulation, casting, form-in-place gasketing, sealing and adhesive dots and beads. A unique modular design provides simple configuration and easy maintenance.

The system accurately meters the components using gear pump technology, which is programmeable from a control panel and triggered using a foot pedal or fingertip switch. It can be configured to work with automation to achieve both consistent dispensed amounts and accurate placement.

During operation, material is fed from the two integrated gravity-fed reservoirs through the gear pumps, where it is metered through flexible hoses to a dispensing head. It uses industry-standard static mixing nozzles to achieve a homogenous mix, free of air bubbles. The mix ratio, dispensing rate and dispensed quantity also can be programmed to provide accurate metering, mixing and dispensing. The user can vary the mix ratio from 1:1 to 1:10; shot size from 2 µg upwards; and dispensing rate (20-1,000 g/min).

“The modular design means each 2-K-DOS machine is built to suit a customer’s process,” explained Kevin Cook, technical manager at Intertronics. “We can adjust features like the reservoir size and dispensing hose length for the application. Our customers can retrofit the system to suit their future requirements, for example a change of material, and maintenance requirements are simple, as any part can be replaced if needed.”

The system can also be combined with either handheld dispensing equipment or Fisnar robots and can meter, mix and dispense many of the materials in our range.
