All automatic

The art of process integration

 

The way in which the mixing head is moved over the part is fundamental to the construction of the mixing and dispensing system and depends on the way you wish to integrate it into your production process. Sonderhoff offers you many possibilities and even more industry-specific experience. Whether it's semi-automated island solutions or complex inline designs developed together with your automators – we’ve probably done it before!

 

Maximum precision

Moving the mixing head over the component with a 2- or 3-axis linear robot (SONDERHOFF LR-HD or SONDERHOFF LR-HEplus) mounted on a steel profile framework.

The mixing head traversing unit (SONDERHOFF MKVE) ensures the precise positioning of the mixing head above the component for application metering.


Maximum compactness

Moving of the mixing head with a 3-axis linear robot mounted in a dispensing cell.


Maximum mobility

Moving the mixing head with a 6-axis robot – in this case, upside-down application is possible with the right choice of material.


Maximum productivity

Naturally it is also possible, with 6-axis robots, to pick up the part and move it under a fixed mixing head, in order to address the most complex geometries. For Sonderhoff-developed fully automatic SONDERHOFF MOLD'N SEAL inline production, dispensing systems and 6-axis robots are combined with an injection moulding system.


Maximum simplicity

It remains always up to you whether you want to move the mixing head by hand – providing you have enough strength. But then, you could still always get a robot to help...
