vectodis: a versatile 1K dispensing system

The option for highly dynamic dosing

The vectodis metering system is suitable for processing single-component media. The material is discharged in shot or bead form. The material is taken from the original container via a feed pump and fed to a piston metering unit with a servo motor. A material pressure regulator keeps the input pressure at the piston metering unit constant.

The material is discharged via a dispensing valve located at the outlet of the piston metering unit. The metering control unit enables communication between the individual system components and coordinates the various features of the metering components. It can be operated conveniently via a touch panel. All the relevant process data is displayed here. The metering control unit enables features such as speed-proportional metering, which allows vectodis to be combined with an industrial robot. The software also provides modern features such as pre-compression and leakage control for reliable, reproducible application over the long term.

Features and benefits

  • Modular construction enables a wide range of use and flow rates
  • High precision through metering at the point of application
  • High process security through:
    • construction with reduced dead space
    • de-airing on the top of the metering chamber
    • metering chamber with pressure monitoring
  • Optimization of the maintenance through:
    • specially guided metering pistons
    • coupling between drive and metering piston
    • hermetic sealing of the piston with additional sealing liquid

Control unit

To control these systems a metering computer with touch screen terminal is used. With this metering computer all applications that can be achieved with vectodis can be parameterised and different metering processes can be memorised.

The control unit is wired into a control cabinet. The metering computer can also handle applications where a speed proportional material supply is required, for example in combination with a robot.
