Automated dispensing technology for the aerospace industry

DOPAG to provide insights into automated metering systems for processing composite materials at Composites Europe 2017

At the Composites Europe trade fair from 19 to 21 September 2017 in Stuttgart, Germany, DOPAG will be presenting future-proof metering and mixing technology for the processing of composite materials (Hall 4, Stand 4/A43_b). DOPAG has specifically developed systems for the production of fibre composite components to ensure a precise metering and mixing process in processing these sophisticated materials, thus meeting the increasing demand for automation.

The DOPAG compomix and eldomix geared metering systems, and the vectomix piston metering system, are all suitable for adhesion bonding and sealing applications. They ensure perfect processing results with materials based on, e.g., polyurethane or epoxy resin. The Vectomix can be used in combination with a gantry robot, for example, for sealing joints and edges. It is especially suited to processing multiple-component media such as, for example low density poly sulphides and applies the material in a highly dynamic and precise way.

The DOPAG coredis metering system is suitable for applying materials with a low density. It fills sandwich panels with a honeycomb core (honeycomb panels) in a clean and homogeneous way. The open edges of the panels are thus firmly protected against external environment influences. Applications can be performed manually or be automated.

For all applications, DOPAG offers automated solutions that ensure significant improvements in processing time, reproducibility, and material usage. Customers benefit from lower costs, increased productivity, lower production costs and higher output.
