This article reports that material engineers who work with adhesives will continue lo make the product perform faster. Moving up the automation ladder, a semiautomatic system might dispense measured or timed amounts of adhesive to prescribed locations on fixture components. At the top-end, a system could operate under robotic control in conjunction with a conveyor or indexing assembly line. The basic Zeta module is a manual dispenser. Adding a controller and dispensing valve permits timed application. A single controller can program from four to six dispensers. Granular products, such as soap, chemicals, and sugar, tend to leak out when bulk-packaged in cartons without liners. In the case of food products, infestation adds another problem.
