Full-featured Benchtop Dispense System - Catalina Series

Full-featured and compact benchtop dispensing robot offering accurate and repeatable dispense results!

A benchtop system does not equate to "no features". The Catalina Series benchtop systems are compact, full-featured platforms with these standard features: automatic vision, laser surface sensing, and nozzle alignment.

Full-featured Benchtop Dispensing Robot

Our tabletop dispensing robot provides you with accurate and repeatable dispense results. Catalina Series can be configured with an optional heated work area.

Applications using solder pastes, glues, encapsulants, gasketing, underfills, conductive adhesives, and more benefit from a Catalina Series tabletop dispensing system.

Powerful System Capabilities

  • Easy to learn, computer-based software with Windows operating system.
  • Easy to use point-based teaching for all axis movement. Able to set point jobs and various parameters.
  • Automatic alignment and positioning with high resolution camera.
  • Create dispense paths using camera teach or on-screen graphic editing.
  • Import DXF files for complex path programming.
  • I/O ports provide the flexibility to add advanced features/equipment.

Models

Catalina

High repeatability with contact probe or non-contact laser surface sensing.

tilt and rotate feature

Catalina TR

Dispense with Tilt and Rotate function.

Catalina Mini

For dispensing on small substrates. Work area: 200 mm x 200 mm (7.9" x 7.9")

Standard Features

Automatic Vision

System automatically locates alignment points to account for product shift and rotation.

3D Dispensing

Laser traces the dispense path and measures surface variation, then adapts height of the dispense tip to maintain a consistent gap.

Image Alignment

Vision system locates alignment points to account for product rotation.

Automatic XYZ Nozzle Calibration

Locates dispense tip in X, Y, Z for accurate fluid placement.

Graphic Edit & DXF Support

User-friendly graphic editing to create a dispense path. AutoCAD DXF files are supported.

Matrix Dot Dispensing

Easily duplicate a common pattern in a matrix.

Fill Area

Multiple types of fill area and dispense patterns. Easy to teach.

Laser

Non-contact surface sensing.

Add-On Options

Fluid Pressure Control (FPC) - Real time process control for pump. Constantly monitors and adjusts fluid pressure entering the pump to maintain optimal pump operation condition.

Heated Work Area - For heating substrates up to 120° C (248° F).

Fluid Level Detect - Notifies operator when fluid level attains set point.

Contact Surface Sensor - Alternative to laser surface sensor. A contact probe may be used to physically touch a product in order to locate the surface.

Laptop Computer - Runs the software.

Teaching Pendant - Remotely controls tabletop robot.

Pump Compatibility

Application

Pumps / Accessories

High viscosity pastes, glues, adhesives.

Precision Auger Pump

High speed, low viscosity.

Jetting Pump (NCM5000)

No drip, volumetric repeatability.

Volumetric Pump (PCD)

Simple liquid dispense applications, low-to-mid viscosity..

Time Pressure

Real time process control.

Fluid Pressure Control (FPC) for use with Precision Auger Pump and Jetting Pump (NCM5000) pumps, as well as Time Pressure Dispensing.
