In automated production processes, high process reliability, convenient handling and some flexibility are required. DOPAG says its multifunctional cell meets these requirements. It features an autonomous robot system, in which all standard application systems can be integrated. The multifunctional cell is suitable for the metering and application of single and dual-component adhesives, sealants, potting materials and lubricants. The process technology for the pre-treatment and post[1]treatment of components – such as plasma pre-treatment or various curing systems – can be integrated easily.

The system is easy to use and offers flexibility. The workpiece carrier can be replaced as required. It can be changed during production in just a few steps. A single workpiece carrier pick-up is optionally available. An optional workpiece query also increases process reliability. A safety door or swing door for equipping the system, an integrated waste container and a pre-programmed regeneration position ensure safe, convenient operation.

No robot programming knowledge is required to set up a new product. All necessary parameters can be configured freely. The robot positions can be entered in a table in the control panel. The robot then processes each point entered one after another. For each operating point, various parameters such as volume flow, metering quantity and pause time can be set individually. The positions for pre-processing and post-processing functions, such as pre-run, regeneration and rinse, can also be set. In total, 20 programs can be stored. The software tools for rail and pallet applications come pre-installed.

DOPAG says the multifunctional cell has a modular design and can be configured individually according to customer requirements, application and the necessary pre- and post-treatment processes.
