Dispensing Robot Expands Work Area

Dispense Works now offers the RP Series robots with a 36 in. x 20 in. work area in a compact and space-saving benchtop. Manufactured in the US, the robots are used for adhesive and myriad other fluid-dispensing applications as well as assembly using UV curing for mounting, tooling, and fixturing.


Features include machine-tool quality construction with pre-loaded leadscrews, ball slides, and brushless servomotors on each axis. This delivers accuracy and high payload capacity for multiple and custom dispense heads — as well as the larger meter and mixing systems. The large ground machine-bed surface provides a suitable stable foundation for fixturing and tooling. Parts remain stationary while the dispense head moves from overhead on the high-speed gantry.
