CT Production, a contract electronics manufacturer, contacted Intertronics when it needed to expand its robotic capability for a low-energy lighting product.

The company needed a compatible unit to fit in with its flow-line assembly and was interested in the Fisnar F4200N for its mix of price, performance and flexibility.

Designed for manufacturing, medical and laboratory environments requiring a streamlined, robust and easily maintained machine, the F4200N is intended to support most light dispensing applications that require a high-performance standard with considerable repetition.

At CT Production, the F4200N is used for lighting products with end caps that need to be sealed.

Key benefits of product application

  • The machine enables controlled dispensing of customer-specified RTV sealant by using a needle that dispenses a ‘gasket’ of sealant, building up a couple of layers on the Z axis to achieve an internal tube within the cap. This has been found to be quicker than manual application while reducing errors and rejects.
  • It handles a dispensing area of 200 x 200 x 50mm and is capable of storing up to 100 difference programs. This enables the processing of a number of caps in a jig of 10 or so at a time
  • According to production managing director Alan Trevarton, using the F4200N is quicker than manual operations and the process could be set up to fit in with adhesive setting times.
  • The LCD display prompts the user for a data input and, once confirmed, automatically displays the next instruction, meaning a program can be created quickly and simply.
