Nordson EFD Releases New RV Series 4-Axis Automated Dispensing System with Smart Vision
12 02 2018
EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN) and the world’s leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, introduces the new RV Series 4-axis automated dispensing system. The system features proprietary DispenseMotion™ software and a fully integrated CCD smart vision camera for best-in-class fluid placement accuracy and control at any angle along the 360° rotational plane.
Nordson EFD vision-guided dispensing robots use fiducial marks to automatically offset the dispense program and compensate for slight shifts in workpiece orientation or location. DispenseMotion software compares the current workpiece location to a reference location that is stored as an image file in the program. If the robot detects even the smallest difference in the X and Y positions and/or the angle of rotation of the workpiece, it automatically adjusts the dispensing path to correct for the difference. This allows it to achieve greater positional accuracy.
