New ink dispensers help laser Weld Clear parts. (Keeping Up With Auxiliaries).
The ink-dispensing equipment suppliers are Nordson Corp. of Duluth, Ga., and Xennia of Royston, Hertfordshire, U.K. They have developed, respectively, a liquid spraying system and an ink-jet printer for accurate application of Gentex's inks. "They open the way for implementing our technology," declares LP Frieder III, marketing manager at Gentex.
Nordson's Product Assembly Group offers a ClearWeld package consisting of a spray apparatus, tips, and syringes. Nordson also supplies robots and 3D motion-control tables required for precise product placement, ink dispensing, and laser manipulation in low- to medium-volume operations. For high-volume welding, Nordson offers customized tabletop work cells.
Meanwhile, Xennia's XPS 9000 industrial inkjet system is specially designed to dispense Gentex's NIR-absorbing inks. An integrated IR lamp ensures efficient ink drying after deposition. Nordson: (800) 683-2314, www.nordson.com / productassembly; Xennia: +44 1763 24 6600, www.Xennia.com
