Key Feature: Sealant Applications via Pre-mixed Cartridges or Mix-on-Demand

PAR’s end effectors have interchangeable components to automatically configure for different sealing tasks. Our end effector units can dispense using either pre-mixed cartridges or mix-on-demand (in-line mixing).

If your application uses pre-mixed frozen cartridges, PAR has an automated Cartridge Management System to ensure your thawed cartridges are automatically delivered to the robot just in time for dispensing.

Supporting Technologies

  • Patented Adaptive Manufacturing/Artificial Intelligent CAM and parts management
  • Real-time seam tracking and process control
  • Real-time post dispense and cure inspection
  • Safe error and fault handling
  • Automated calibration, part localization, nozzle exchange, tool exchange, tip management, and tool and nozzle identification

Benefits of Automated Dispensing

A major challenge for sealant applications is getting the sealant in those hard-to-reach places. To meet these challenges, PAR has specially designed nozzles and tips available. Our team can tune your system with the appropriate specially designed nozzle, so it meets your specified dispensing performance and robotic motion. This ensures a consistent application, avoiding the errors that are commonly made with a manual process.

Our automated adhesive dispensing systems have a number of benefits,  including:

  • Significantly improves quality and consistency, while reducing costs
  • Configurable fixturing eliminates the need for restraint fixtures and accommodates families of parts at reduced cost
  • Capable of handling the many challenges created by variabilities associated with sealant applications
  • PAR’s disposable fluid paths dramatically reduce cleaning requirements, maintenance time and costs

Our capabilities are many, our experience is deep.
