Project: High Speed Jet on the Fly

State-of-the-Art Technology in Dispensing

Position Based Spacing Control.jpgHigh-speed Jet on the Fly technology takes dispensing applications to a new level that features both accuracy and flexibility. Position-based spacing control provides high accuracy dispensing. The dispense head is programmed to jet the exact amount of fluid in precisely the correct place and provides consistent dot dispensing even on uneven substrate. Additionally, it dispenses a set number of dots for a particular line at high dispense speeds.

Key features include the precision dispense control and the trigger signal control. The precision dispensing control will remain consistent and unaffected by any changes in the velocity and maintains consistent dot dispensing through the accurate trigger signal control.

Jet on the Fly vs Stop and Capture

Instead of stopping to move between dispensing points, the dispense head maintains a continuous speed and direction throughout the process.

Jet by Position (Innovation) vs Jet by Velocity (Traditional)

Jet by Velocity (Traditional): Jet by Velocity is decided by the interval between dots by changing the velocity in predefined paths. Traditional fluid dispensing methods are hampered by velocity, acceleration and deceleration. Glue can then overflow when decelerating on the corners.

Jet on the Fly: Jet on the Fly allows for jetting without stop when both X and Y are in the predefined positions. This produces a measured shot of small dots and thin lines onto the work surface for arbitrary trajectory.
