  • Thermal management in printed circuit boards: Extremely abrasive and highly viscous materials must be metered with high precision.

    Dispensing Abrasive Thermal Paste

    ViscoTec dispensing pumps have already proven themselves in numerous applications as the optimal tool for handling highly abrasive materials. Dispensing tests were carried out for one customer with its new 1-component heat-conducting paste at the ViscoTec technical center. The extremely abrasive and, at the same time, highly viscous material had to be dispensed onto a […]

    vipro-HEAD 5 Suitable for Use in Zero Gravity

    In the summer of 2020, ViscoTec reported on the AIMIS-FYT team’s project, which uses a standard 3D print head from ViscoTec. The project aims to demonstrate a 3D printing process that can be used to produce structures for solar panels, antennas or other installations in space. Due to the Coronavirus restrictions, the parabolic flights with […]

    Filling of Liquid Powders

    Powders in the conventional sense are known as solids. Their classic manufacturing process is called Powder Compaction: Dry powders are compacted with a pounder to form a solid unit (a disc or other form). Finished products are i.e. eye shadow or blush. However, in some manufacturing processes these powders are formulated in a liquid phase. […]

  • vipro-DUOMIX With Optimized Mixing Blocks

    The static-dynamic mixer vipro-DUOMIX is perfectly suited for compressible, two-component materials – with very different viscosities, extreme mixing ratios and high-pressure sensitivity. The extended version with optimized mixing blocks for low-viscosity, and high-viscosity materials on either side brings a further advantage: It is ideally suited for materials that are difficult to mix – with different […]

  • ViScaFeed for Fully Automated Potting Applications

    With ViScaFeed another product complements the ViscoTec portfolio: A material treatment and supplying unit for fully automated applications. Just like the ViScaMix (for manual potting applications), the ViScaFeed comes from Scanmaster in Denmark. Henning Pedersen, CEO and owner of Scanmaster explains, “The name ViScaFeed says it all: This system aims to feed another system – […]

    Optimized Sealing in Aircraft Production

    Protecting the environment while reducing costs. Let us take a look at existing dispensing processes in the aerospace industry: It is only in a few cases that they are state of the art. Dispensing technology, in association with sealing applications in particular, can be optimized and improved. The prerequisite: To view the process comprehensively, and […]
