Speedline Intros Plug-and-Play Dispenser
Automated dispensing system.
Franklin, MA — Speedline Technologies has introduced its FX-D dispenser, which it says provides wide applications flexibility and reasonable acquisition cost. The new Camalot FX-D dispensing system can be easily reconfigured in the field as process requirements change.

According to the company, the dispensing system can be used as a standalone or in-line dispenser, and can be field retrofitted with any available option, such as servo-driven pumps, jetting valves, weight scales, and even a conveyor.

Dispense platforms have traditionally been limited by the range of applications they can cover. Standalone, in-line, heated, and unheated versions typically were mutually exclusive, but not so with the FX-D. This unusual system can be reconfigured in any of these formats. It will even support two independently controlled Z-heads for a sequential dispense mode that can achieve up to 20 percent greater throughput with no loss of accuracy.

Other features of the new dispenser include Benchmark software, a Windows®-based operating system that provides fast, user-friendly program creation and changeover, and a highly accurate gantry system utilizing precision ball screws driven by closed-loop DC servomotors.

The dispense pumps are also controlled with closed-loop DC servomotors for enhanced accuracy and reliability. For in-line applications, the "pipeline" conveyor mode reduces handling time up to 50 percent by transferring products in parallel. The 508 x 508mm dispense area and machine maintenance points are all easily accessible to minimize downtime.

The Camalot FX-D provides flexibility and performance previously found only at the high end of the market, making it an suitable system for manufacturers who demand an accurate, reliable, cost-effective machine that is easily adaptable to changing requirements.
