Weighing Systems & Scales Q&A

  •   In this application, a one part adhesive is dispensed onto a plate (4 in. diameter). The controls include the valve, pressure of the adhesive, rotation speed, and number of rotations. The application requires 5 g of adhesive to be applied to the plate. The adhesive must be dispensed “evenly”. How can I check the weight of the adhesive in-line and verify the adhesive is dispensed evenly?

    Based on the information provided it would appear this actually needs both a weighing element and a vision element. You can check the weight of the adhesive using a basic in-line checkweigher, however, the limitation of weight is that it cannot determine how it’s distributed.
