FlexSpeed dispensing robots from RAMPF Production Systems take corners with the highest precision and cover straights fast, making it possible to cut lead times for sealing, foaming, and bonding processes in series production by more than half.
The newly developed technology is based on forced volumetric dispensing and the direct linking of dis-pensing performance and axis feed rate, making the dispensing system extremely flexible and respon-sive.
Whereas dispensing robots previously applied systems at constant speeds, the new FlexSpeed technol-ogy now enables them to reach up to 40 m/min. in a straight line, while braking in a controlled way just before corners and curves down to 20 m/min., ensuring consistent seal cross-sections and minimal cor-ner radii.
The key benefit of RAMPF FlexSpeed for sealing, foaming, and bonding systems is optimum machine utilization while still preserving the mechanical parts. Only running at full speed for short periods means hardly any wear, so speed-dependent dispensing preserves the mechanical parts and machine utiliza-tion can be boosted considerably.
“The aim of series production is to manufacture the maximum number of units with maximum machine utilization, while maintaining the highest level of quality. For our customers in the automotive, electri-cal/electronics, household appliances, filter, and medical technology industries, these kinds of fast pro-cess chains are a must in production so as to compete in the global arena. With FlexSpeed, we are mak-ing a vital contribution to this,” says Alexander Huttenlocher, Director of Sales and Marketing at RAMPF Production Systems.
