Inline flow monitoring systems allow precise data feedback on material quantities applied during each application cycle. This data is displayed in Portal and can be downloaded to a dedicated personal computer or sent to a networked computing system for charting results over time.
Flow monitoring is a reliable process control option that can alert an operator to a variety of issues that may affect the volume applied during an operation. As a dispense program is optimized, a targeted volume is achieved. Any allowable deviation from this target is determined by the program and is specific to the given dispense path.
The application process will work seamlessly unless an out of tolerance volume is obtained. In the event a cycle does not produce a volume consistent with the allowable range, a fault mode will ensue.
Flow monitoring has many integrated features including:
- Data acquisition capability for charting volume consistency over time
- Real time data feedback on every assembly processed
- Resolution of 0.001 cubic centimeters
- Piston style material monitor
