Nordson EFD Introduces New GV Series Gantry Fluid Dispensing Robot with Vision

23 May 2018

The complete gantry automation system features proprietary dispensing software and a camera for ease of setup and programming — ideal for integration into rotary tables and conveyer-fed assembly lines.

East Providence, RI USA — May 23, 2018 — Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), the world’s leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, introduces the vision-guided GV Series automated fluid dispensing gantry robot. Specialized DispenseMotion™ software and an integrated CCD smart vision camera or simple pencil camera make the automated systems quick to set up and easy to program.

The CCD camera converts pixels into digital values to deliver precise, high-quality images. The proprietary dispensing software confirms workpiece presence and placement and automatically adjusts as in-process variations occur.

“With working envelopes that range from 400 mm to 800 mm and unlimited workpiece payloads, the GV Series is ideal for precision fluid dispensing onto substrates requiring large work envelopes while not sacrificing repeatability,” said Johnathan Titone, Product Line Specialist – Automated Dispensing Systems, Nordson EFD. “It’s designed to work as a standalone system or an automated solution, and easily integrates into rotary tables or conveyer-fed automation.”

Other benefits of the system include market-leading dimensional positioning accuracy and deposit placement repeatability at +/- 0.02 mm for the 400 mm gantry robot and +/- 0.01 mm for the 800 mm gantry robot. This provides exceptional product quality and reduces rework, rejects, and fluid waste. Intuitive software and vision streamlines training of in-house operators for faster setup and higher productivity.
