System Handles Fragile Components

August 2009
Assembly;Aug2009, Vol. 52 Issue 8, p8
The article shares information from Jeff Graham and Nathan Marshall of Allied Automation regarding a system that the company has designed for the construction of an adhesive applicator. Graham and Marshall describe the system including its components such as an eight-station rotary dial and a recirculating puck conveyor. They discuss the most challenging part of building the system which involves its critical handling of an ampoule. The chemical- and corrosion-resistant materials that were used for the machine are noted.
