  • Sensitive dosing tasks? Highly viscous, abrasive, shear-sensitive?

    Dosing tasks appear to be easy – at first glance. Adhesives, silicones, sealants … the automated application of various viscous  materials has been used for decades. So, where’s the problem? Only an optimal combination of several influencing factors guarantees a perfect dosing process with repeatable results. Challenges in dosing tasks The automated application of various […]

  • Innovative electric motors from a 3D printer

    The scientific members of staff, Johannes Rudolph and Fabian Lorenz of the Technical University of Chemnitz, Professorship of Electrical Energy Conversion Systems and Drives, have developed an innovative production process for the manufacture of electric motors. Components of different materials can therefore be produced in one operation by means of an additive production process. Metallic and […]

  • 3D printing of silicone components with ViscoTec print heads

    One of the most prestigious universities in the United States of America is concerned with the additive manufacture of moisture-curing silicones. In particular, a research group in Mechanical Engineering is faced with the challenge of creating individual gripper attachments made of silicone and, in this context, not to ignore certain requirements. Initial situation Especially in […]

  • Filling of syringes via the Luer Lock connection

    In the dental industry, many consumables such as etching gels, whitening gels and composites are filled into disposable syringes which have a Luer Lock connection. Often the filling of the syringes is done manually and is therefore very time-consuming. The semi-automatic bench top dosing system from ViscoTec can hereby help. It offers the user ease […]
