One of the best assembly applications for a cobot is adhesive or sealant dispensing. The rate of motion required is slow enough for a cobot to apply optimally. The repeatability of a cobot is sufficient and the ease of teaching the robot for a variety of dispensing tasks is a significant benefit.
Futura Automation’s partner Fancort Industries offers a plug-and-play fluid dispensing system or kit that fits all Universal Robots, the world’s leading cobot manufacturer. These kits are designed to dispense fluids from 100-400,000 centi-poise with minimal effort and simple integration including a universal mounting bracket that works for the standard syringe as well as Fancort’s precision engineered valves. The base application kit is available for an economical $4,000 and includes everything needed to get started including needles and test gel.
