Automatica Munich: ViscoTec presents several new developments
In keeping with this year’s Automatica 2023 motto “Insights. Impulses. Innovations”, ViscoTec is surprising visitors with an automated product handling solution: The combination of established Bosch Rexroth automation and precise dispensing technology combines the best of both worlds. The engineers will be presenting the system at this year’s leading trade fair for intelligent automation and robotics from June 27 to 30 in Munich in Hall A6 at Booth 520.
And something else is new this year: ViscoTec is enlarging its trade fair team and bringing colleagues from development and product management to the booth for the first time. In this way, the team of about seven people ensures that all questions can be answered with sufficient time and technical depth.
A Bavarian day is again planned for Wednesday, June 28, when stand visitors can look forward to Bavarian delicacies such as white sausages and pretzels.
However, the culinary delights and the booth personnel dressed in traditional clothing are only pleasant side effects of this year’s Automatica: The focus of the 54 m2 booth is on ViscoTec products, the majority of which can now be integrated into fully automated production lines, and which will also be demonstrated live at the trade fair.
On the one hand, there is the automatic vipro-FEED M plus barrel emptying system, which can be used to feed 1C or, if used twice, 2C media into the process. Particularly noteworthy here is the automatically retracting follower plate with venting of the bucket. The automated separator plate degassing also enables bubble-free and precise material feeding. The continuous position detection of the follower plate, which allows fill levels to be monitored. And of course, there are always innovations about safety, such as the improved enclosure for even greater process reliability.
Another novelty at this year’s Automatica: With the newly developed carbide rotor for the vipro-PUMP, abrasive media can now virtually no longer cause any damage to the technology during metering – including increased breakage resistance and longer service life.
With the vipro-PUMP, ViscoTec’s engineers have a configurable 1K dispenser in the bag, which they are presenting in five different sizes. In addition, the rotor train of the vipro-PUMP is separable, which significantly simplifies disassembly and thus maintenance work compared to the previous dispenser.
In a broader sense, also developed for this purpose: The flowplus-SPT M6 sensor, which can be used to monitor pressures and temperature.
In addition, visitors to Munich can also get to know the 2C dispensing heads ViscoDuo-VM, ViscoDuo-VMP 22/22 and ViscoDuo-P 4/4.
