Eliminate Air Pressure from Fluid Dispensing to Enjoy These Benefits

Making the switch from an air-driven fluid dispensing system to an AirFree® fluid dispensing system allows you to enjoy these important benefits: Mitigated risk There are so many problems associated with air driven fluid dispensers. Dirt and moisture particles that originate in the pipe between the air compressor and air dispenser mix with the assembly fluid. When an air dispenser cycles, air pressure uncontrollably surges into the syringe and slaps the air piston with violence....

Enough With the Air Driven Fluid Dispenser “Band-Aids”

If you use an air driven fluid dispenser for the assembly of your product, it will soon become apparent to you (and your quality control inspectors!) that the air pressure uncontrollably surges into the syringe and slaps the air piston every time the air dispenser cycles. This stresses and heats the assembly fluid in the syringe which changes the bonding properties of the fluid resulting in production rejects and defective products. The...

Why AirFree® Technology is Replacing Air Driven Fluid Dispensers

Air driven fluid dispensers have become outdated technology. The erratic fluctuation of air supply from compressors continues to result in never ending firefights when it’s obvious what the root cause of the problem is: air pressure. Eliminating air pressure entirely creates a more stable production cell with traceability to the point of dispense. Here are 3 reasons why AirFree® technology should...

AirFree® Fluid Dispensing Delivers the Lowest Total Cost of Ownership

In the past, repeatability of the fluid deposit and price of the system were the primary decision points for choosing a fluid dispensing system. These are valid considerations as the starting cost of any dispensing system. But there is a more comprehensive measurement to the long term cost of the fluid dispensing system- the total cost of ownership. Over the lifetime of a system cost of ownership includes not just purchase costs but all process control costs, maintenance costs, and energy costs....
