Techcon Systems Develops First-to-Market Disposable Material Path Diaphragm Valve


Reading time ( words)

techcon.JPGTechcon Systems, a product group of OK International and a leading provider of fluid dispensing systems and products, has developed a new disposable material path (DMP) diaphragm valve. The new TS5624DMP valve features a “first to market” disposable material path, enabling difficult fluids and pre-mixed two-part epoxies to be dispensed without the need for frequent cleaning. The entire wetted area can simply be replaced in a matter of seconds, while the valve stays on the production line.

The wetted parts are manufactured from black Polyethylene to prevent moisture and UV light from coming into contact with the dispense fluids. As a result, moisture sensitive fluids such as Cyanoacrylate and UV cured adhesives can be dispensed reliably and accurately.

TS5624 dispenses low to medium viscosity fluids over a wide range of shot and bead sizes, down to a fraction of a micro liter. An internal spring return makes the valves fully adaptable for use with Techcon Systems controllers. A short opening stroke provides an extremely fast and positive shut-off. The seal-less valve design offers excellent moisture sensitive resistance and the incorporated diaphragm creates a barrier between the wetted parts and the air cylinder.

The valve comes standard with a mounting bracket kit, valve air hose, luer lock fluid line, sample packet of DMP inserts and a dispensing tip selection pack. Typical applications include dispensing pre-mixed two-part epoxies and cyanoacrylate in bonding applications, and applying UV lacquer in CD/DVD spin coating applications.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
