(Wixom, MI, US), a supplier of precision technologies for ambient-temperature material dispensing, has launched a new, auto- mated cartridge dispensing system as an addition to its product line of aerospace manufacturing and assembly solutions from its Nordson Sealant Equipment brand. The robot-mounted product, named JetStream, allows for the appli- cation of pre-mixed sealant materials during assembly operations, such as wing spar, panel, fuselage or aircraft door sealing, and is applied to processes that include A-dimension covering, fastener doming or generation of small beads for joint sealing. Designed specifically for sealant dispensing applications in aerospace manufacturing, the robot-mounted JetStream system features an articulating cartridge holder that opens to load and unload pre-mixed cartridges. According to Nordson, the system reduces processing time, improves material deposition accuracy and reduces material costs by automating a previously manual process and making it consistent and repeatable.
