    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

The standalone dispensing system, including material treatment is designed for manual potting applications, especially for the electronics industry. It is perfectly suited for low to mid viscosity, respectively self-levelling materials, like Epoxies, Polyurethanes or Silicones. Those 2-component materials […]

  • Peelings enthalten abrasive Inhaltsstoffe, die so manche Dosiertechnik vor Herausforderungen stellt

    Cosmetics: Filling Abrasive Pastes

    Proper hand washing is one of the big topics this year. More than ever, we are aware that hand washing prevents the transmission of many agents that cause infections. While a simple liquid soap is sufficient for normal hand washing, soaps or pastes for the industrial sector often have to be enriched with abrasive fillers. […]
