Accurate and repeatable dispensing of small shots of two-part materials from 50ml twin cartridges is often hampered by material drooling after the shot cycle, resulting in waste and clean up. It is also difficult to control shot size using pneumatic or manual cartridge guns.

The Fisnar I&J123-D50 from INTERTRONICS eliminates these problems. A stepping motor drive is coupled by a Hydro-Link® to a double contact-ram that enters both barrels of the cartridge (Plate 4).

A built-in PALM® computer controls the dispense set-up, with a graphical display indicating when the cartridge is empty. Shot sizes of 0.002 cm3 are possible, with the stepping motor mechanically forcing the material through the mixing nozzle in precise steps, achieving an accurate deposit.

The system can also be used with any three-axis Fisnar robot for automatic dispensing of beads or single shots from 50 ml cartridges.
