MRC500 dispensing robotic cell

The PC controlled mta MRC500 robotic cell is a standard automatic dispensing machine with a working area is of 500x500mm. It can be used for semi or fully automated volumetric dispensing operations.

The MRC500 can be equipped with all the established of mta dispensing heads: NVD mono-component dispenser, NBD two-components dispenser, mini-NVD mono-component dispenser, mini-NBD two-components dispenser, CFD continuous flow mono-component dispenser, CBD continuous flow two-components dispenser, CD cartridge mono-component dispenser and jet dispenser.

The 3 axes of the MRC500 are fully programmable through the mta MotionEditor software including dispensing parameters such as:

  • Volume to be dispensed, dispensing speed, mixing ratio as well as other related dispensing parameters e.g. unlimited quantity of points, linear or circular beads.

Thanks to its flexible and modular concept, the MRC500 has an open architecture. It can therefore easily be integrated into existing production lines with pallet conveyors or a rotary table.

3 reasons to choose the mta MRC500 dispensing robotic cell

  1. The mta MRC500 is both purposes-built and standardized. The advantage of being purpose-built is that there was no need to compromise functionality around pre-defined limitations. The advantage of standardizing the design is that it does not come with the heavy cost associated with one-off custom machines.
  2. The X, Y, and Z axis use ball-screw actuators for precise actuation with a repeatability of 20 microns to assure the process is accurate and delivers consistent quality.
  3. Properly designed heads are fairly heavy, so large DC stepper motors was used that provide the strength needed to actuate the head quickly.
