Many manufacturing operations rely on manual dispensing of adhesives or other fluids. This dispense method is adequate in some applications; however, it has a number of drawbacks. In manual dispensing, the quality of dispense is only as high as the quality of the operator’s work. Dispense accuracy is therefore often highly varied, even when comparing different products produced by the same operator in a single day. Poor dispense accuracy can result in a great deal of waste and rework, leading to higher manufacturing costs.

Companies looking to improve dispense quality and ensure operator-independent product quality can benefit from investing in semi-automated robot dispensing technology, such as is offered by Amada Miyachi Europe. With robot dispensing, product quality is always the same, as long the adhesives being used are within specifications. Robot dispensing results in higher productivity, less waste and rework, and better overall product quality; as a result, though companies must invest in it up front, it often has a rapid ROI and eventually reduces manufacturing costs.

Robot dispensing systems are best able to deliver these benefits of improved product quality and reduced costs when designed by industry experts with a great deal of experience. The expert robotic dispense technology team at Amada Miyachi Europe, a leader in the dispense market for over 40 years, designs robotic dispense solutions to meet each customer’s needs. The Amada Miyachi team then tests these solutions, working with samples of customers’ products to provide the most accurate and reliable robotic dispense technology possible.

The resulting robot dispensing solution delivers high quality products, low assembly costs, and a clean and LEAN manufacturing environment. The benefits of these robotic dispense solutions are widely applicable, as the solutions are ideal for adhesives and bonding in the electronics, industrial assembly, displays, sensors, aerospace, lighting, medical, and automotive industries.
