SmartDispenser® General Fluids Automation Integration Kit (SDIK)

SmartDispenser® General Fluids Automation Integration Kit (SDIK™)

AirFree® Technology & Fluid Dispensing Automation

The fully-automated SDIK is most typically used in facilities that are set up with “production cells”. Any number of dispensing units may be used in tandem during the rapid production of parts. The SDIK easily integrates with both a PLC and robotics. As the dispense signals are sent from another source, there is no need for a touch screen, mouse, or keyboard. The facility may attach and utilize a DVI computer monitor, conceivably using a KVM switch to check and view all of the units at critical points.

The fully-automated SDIK is configured exactly the same as the benchtop unit, with all the same software and add-ons provided. The primary difference is the elimination of the touchscreen monitor, 2 of the 4 USB hubs and the foot pedal input. Essentially, the SDIK has been stripped of anything that is unnecessary in a pure production environment, reduced in size (for easy installation on a 19 inch DIN rail), and lower in cost.

AirFree® technology acts as an additional axis when mounted on a benchtop automation system. The precise control engineered into the X, Y and Z axis is now applied to the fluid delivery axis. All axes are motor-driven lead screws with known speeds and can be coordinated providing the highest precision and repeatability available on a desktop robot.

Fluid Dispensing Process Control

  • ProcessControl2® quantifies Fluid Dispense Program.
  • AirFree® Linear Drive System replaces air pressure improving fluid deposit repeatability 6-10 times.
  • ProcessControl auto adjust program provides the highest fluid deposit repeatability.
  • SmartDispenser® Control Center assures the exact amount of voltage is supplied to the Linear Drive System, assuring identical performance from each SmartDispenser®.
