  • 3D Print Head Prints Miniaturized Pneumatic Actuators

    The areas of application for Soft Robotics are still in their infancy, but the potential is promisingly large. As part of an in-house test, the vipro-HEAD 3D print head from ViscoTec was able to print a very small, sophisticated pneumatic actuator – a so-called Soft Gripper. Robots are an integral part of industry these days […]

  • Table-Top Dosing Machine for Highly Viscous Materials

    Bausch+Ströbel developed a new table-top solution for processing highly viscous products: The EDM 3721. The dosing machine is equipped with a ViscoTec dosing pump. The EDM 3721 was specially developed for processing highly viscous, shear-sensitive and abrasive materials. The dosing of fluids and pastes can also be carried out under vacuum in syringes. Vacuum-assisted dosing […]

  • Bonding Magnets in Electric Motor Manufacturing

    In the production of electric motors, the use of automated dispensing technology is on the rise. The mechanical fixing of magnets is proving to be a big challenge in relation to the automation of this process, especially as the process is associated with high costs. However, the bonding of magnets in laminated core provides a […]

  • ViscoTec Global Dispensing Expo 2020

    Main topic of the first virtual trade show by ViscoTec, which takes place from December 1 to 3, is dispensing solutions for a wide range of applications and industries. From medical technology and 3D printing to aerospace or e-mobility – to name just a few. The virtual program of the Dispensing Expo 2020 is diverse: […]

  • Individualization Made Possible by Flexible Color Design in 3D Printing

    The trend towards individualization has an impact on both B2C and B2B products. And it does not stop at 3D printing. The call for individual developments and requirements has reached ViscoTec through numerous customers. An extension of the ViscoTec 3D portfolio was developed based upon market requirements: The vipro-HEAD color ink delivery system. Individual design […]

  • Viele Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter sind dem Aufruf der Geschäftsführung gefolgt und am vergangenen Freitag in Tracht zur Arbeit erschienen.

    A little bit of “Volksfest” at ViscoTec

    Normally, ViscoTec has a central topic at this time of year in addition to its daily work: The “Volksfest” visits! Under the special circumstances in 2020, the management decided not to miss the cozy get-together completely. Last Friday they called for the “Trachten-Freitag” at ViscoTec. And as a small compensation for the cancelled company evening […]

  • Beim Imprägnieren von Elektromotoren durch Träufeln sorgt die Exzenterschnecken-Technologie, auf der z.B. ViscoTec Dosiersysteme basieren, für beste Ergebnisse

    Trickle Impregnation of Electric Motors

    The quality of the insulation in electric drives determines, among other things, the durability and efficiency of the motor. Low-viscosity materials are used as an impregnation material so that they can be filled into any cavity, even into narrow areas of the windings. Most resins are thermally curing. Typical properties of impregnating resins are good […]

  • Vorteil des neuen Schlauch Inliners: Das Produkt kommt nicht mit dem eigentlichen Schlauch in Berührung – eine Reinigung entfällt komplett.

    NEW: Inliner hose for flexible, effective production

    In the cosmetics sector, ViscoTec barrel extraction solutions are often used to feed highly viscous products such as mascara to filling stations. While the emptying and dosing systems can be easily disassembled for cleaning, this does not apply to the hoses in use. This is why customers increasingly approached ViscoTec and asked for a solution […]

  • Flexwelle in den ViscoTec Dispensern

    Even Longer Service Life for ViscoTec Dispensers

    With adhesive dispensers based on the endless piston principle, the power is transmitted from the motor to the rotor by means of joints or flexible shafts. For over twenty years ViscoTec has been using an in-house developed flexible shaft in its dispensers, which is protected by US Patent No. 6,877,967B2. The advantage of this version […]

  • Thermal management – dispensing of liquid TIM and gap filler

    The application and injection of TIMS or gap fillers on and into battery modules or electronic components requires an absolutely process-safe handling of 1- or 2-component materials. Precise, fully automated, easily adjustable, and endless dosing is the prerequisite. ViscoTec dispensing systems enable exactly that: Continuous, repeatable, and material-friendly dispensing of TIMs, gap fillers, sealing materials […]
