The Hybrid Dispenser HC-100 is equipped with an X, Y and Z axis and is able to carry a heavy payload. This is very useful in case of 2-component (2K) Meter and Mix applications. These applications are mainly carried out using equipment that mixes the material just before it is being dispensed.
Determining the mix ratio and the correct shot sizes is done outside of the machine. The material s then being transferred into the machine by heavy hoses. The mixing is done by using a static mixer. The Hybrid Dispenser HC-100 is a heavy duty 3-axis (XYZ) platform created for such industrial applications. The Meter Mix equipment can be left outside of the machine, which makes it easy for maintenance. The hoses are guided through the top of the machine and the only dispensing part of the machine is the static mixer. The HC-100 uses the same software as all other DIMA machines and therefore the same library structure is available. This makes it easy to set up the machine and store all necessary dispensing parameters. The Hybrid Dispenser has an integrated camera as a standard feature. The camera can be used to check for fiducials and to easily calibrate the machine and its instruments. The camera can even be used for programming in case this is being preferred over the standard available off-line programming software. The work area of the HC-100 with one dispensing nozzle is 500 x 500mm (X,Y) and the product clearance is 100mm for both Top- and Bottom side.
Rigid welded Steel frame construction
Large working area
Z-axis payload 6Kg
Teaching camera standard
Easy track off-line programming software
Advanced monitoring for process control
Some of the options that are available: Automatic XYZ nozzle calibration, Flow monitoring, Dynamic flow adjustment, Touchless needle cleaning, Height detection, Barcode software, Integrated Weight scale and Reservoir empty detection. Even a Pick & Place tool can be integrated into the Hybrid Dispenser.
To complete the configuration you have to decide which valves you are going to use, how many different materials you are working with, in what quantity you want to put them to the machine, what you want to monitor, how you want to handle the product and if you want automatic alignment of the product. The machine is equipped as standard with PE material feed tubes. Other material feed tubes, grippers or special pumps are available on request.
Dispensing and Pick & Place in one!
The Pick & Place tool enables the user to perform two processes on one machine: a Dispensing and Pick & Place process in one! First, dispense one of the parts and directly place the second part on top of the other. This way you need only one machine to do the job instead of a separate Dispenser and a Pick & Place machine!
All units use the DIMASOFT user interface in combination with the built-in CCD camera. Special tools in the software like a component library for dispense points and special coating teach tools make sure that programming is done quickly. To programme boards or to manage the data the software can be installed free of charge on another computer. Fiducial alignment software is available as an option.
The Hybrid Dispenser is a must but the valves as a tool combined with process knowledge are the key to successful dispensing. User-friendly operator software is a nice feature, but without the right valves and our process knowledge, you will not get satisfying results. DIMA offers a wide range of valves, process knowledge and test facilities to make your application work.
