FD Series dispensers support 310ml and 400ml cartridges out of the box, yet larger cartridge support is available upon request.
For FD 310 and FD High-V dispensers in worst case you can expect +/-5% deposit variance. This goes down to +/- 1% with constant feed setup. (constant, clean feed air pressure)
FD400 has a Full2Empty deposit variance of 30% out-of-box. This is due to the nature of it’s feeding mechanism: a pre-loaded spring.** Therefore FD400 is suggested to be used in conditions where highly repeatable deposit amount isn’t critical (greasing/lubing of parts, decorating cakes)
**This can be solved with correct programming setup – increasing dispensing speed every X-paths dispensed.
Yes, all Aim Robotics material dispensers are modular by nature.
If you have purchased a FD400, you have 2 options:
- Purchase FD-HighV adapt kit to support external feed systems
- Purchase FD310-adapt-kit to support 310ml cartridges and external feed systems
No, there is no native support for 2K dispensing with FD Series Material Dispensers.
Custom setups are possible, please contact us for more details.
To ensure best possible results: clean, dry, pre-regulated (7 BAR/100 PSI MAX) air supply is necessary.
We offer Aim Robotics Air Treatment Kit, which enables highest reproducibility from our test lab to your manufacturing site.
FD High-V can be used with any external feed system as long as a constant regulated inlet pressure can be achieved.
Low to Medium viscosity fluids – Top Ported Reservoir Tank
Medium to High viscosity fluids – Bottom Ported Reservoir Tank
Inlet pressure (outlet for the feed system) is measured at the inlet of the FD High-V dispenser. Remember to account for large pressure drop in feed pipes, contact us for more info/help.
FD series dispensers normally operate between 0.5-3 BAR inlet material pressure, depending on material and nozzle choice.
For High-V setups, this is the pressure of material at the end of the feed line (where it connects to the tool)
For FD 310 systems we typically see 0.2-3 BAR of air pressure.
All FD series Material Dispensers have a 0-100% dispensing speed scale.
Depending on material, feed screw and nozzle setup, you would normally use speeds from 15-50%.
- Greases, Lubricants and alike: 25-80%
- Acrylics, light duty sealants and alike: 25-50%
- RTV’s, Silicones, Adhesives, Polymers and alike: 10-30%
For now, full integration is available only with UR platform (URCaps, nice GUI by Aim Robotics)
Yet as our RS485 protocol is open, all Aim Robotics tools can be used on any robot in any installation.
- MODBUS TCP or USB support
- 24V 0.6A RMS capable power supply
