There are many reasons why tapes are replacing traditional fixing methods. Among these is the strong and reliable bond that tapes provide and their additional functionality such as sealing, shielding, insulating and cushioning. In addition to these benefits, joining with tape offers greater design options, product quality and enhanced manufacturing efficiencies.
A customised adhesive component offers a number of benefits to designers and engineers. Product designs can be streamlined with invisible joins and product manufacture is made simple with a convenient and easy to handle component. Adhesive parts can be designed with application aids, or for use in automated assembly processes.
When choosing an adhesive product, there are some key criteria to consider so that the desired performance is achieved. By understanding the end product and conditions it will be subject to, a material can be specified that will last the full life of your product.
Reduce costs and enhance quality with pick and place automation equipment
Pick and place automation equipment offers a proven solution to achieving faster and more cost effective manufacturing. To achieve these benefits, automating the application of your adhesive components can easily be incorporated into your current manufacturing processes.
As an automation equipment supplier, we have the specialist knowledge and experience to advise on the equipment and processes that would best suit your individual requirements. Learn more below or watch our automated assembly video.
There are a number of reasons for automating the application of your adhesive components:
Adhesive components can be tricky to handle and can sometimes distort easily
Your assembly process requires bubble free placement
Your assembly process requires placement with a controllable force
Your target part is not easily accessible
Your assembly requires high accuracy and repeatability
You strive for shorter cycle times, a lower scrap rate and better yield
Automation adds value to your processes, making them more streamlined and cost effective, whilst ensuring consistent quality is achieved. We offer a quality solution to your automation needs and use automation technology in our own manufacturing processes.
We recognise the challenges of handling and applying flexible and sticky adhesive components. We also recognise the challenges of improving your production with automation, such as the need for fast product changes, varied product mixes, unpredictable production numbers and short product life cycles.
This is why we have partnered with AccuPlace, a manufacturer of flexible and reusable pick and place equipment, designed specifically to handle adhesive components.
Since 1997, AccuPlace have provided component placement solutions into a wide range of markets where quality is paramount, such as healthcare, automotive and electronics. They have developed a standard platform that gives you the flexibility you need. Only vacuum chucks and target part nests are customised, allowing easy re-usability of the machine in case of product changes.
With extensive experience in handling adhesive materials and using automated assembly equipment, you can rely on one contact for an entire solution – we understand your challenges and eliminate your concerns by offering innovative, high performance standard equipment.
