Nordson Sealant Equipment Launches New JetStream™ Automated Cartridge Dispenser

New system enables aerospace manufacturers to improve quality, consistency and production speed with the efficient application of sealant from pre-mixed cartridges.

Nordson Corporation (NASDAQ:NDSN), a leading supplier of precision technologies for ambient temperature material dispensing, announced today the launch of a new automated cartridge dispensing system, enhancing the existing product line of aerospace manufacturing and assembly solutions from its Nordson SEALANT EQUIPMENT portfolio.

The new JetStream™ robot-mounted product is ideal for the application of pre-mixed sealant materials in assembly operations such as wing spar, panel, fuselage or aircraft door sealing, and applied to processes such as A-dimension covering, fastener doming or small beads for joint sealing.

Using the system, manufacturers benefit from:

Elimination of rework – significantly reducing process time through the robotic application of accurately metered material, for assured quality every time
Automation of a manual process – consistent and accurate automatic application increases production first-pass quality and reduces material costs and unnecessary structure weight
Designed specifically for sealant dispensing applications in aerospace manufacturing, the robot mounted JetStream™ system features an articulating cartridge holder that opens to load and unload pre-mixed cartridges. Additionally, its built-in volumetric dispense valve assembly eliminates material supply hoses and increases the accuracy of bead, volume and placement through automation.

Features and benefits include:

Automated tool changer interface enables immediate, on the fly, applicator changes
Three interchangeable applicator designs, for maximum versatility:
Brush Applicator (BA), suitable for the material spreading / application of primer material
Two types of Sealant Applicator for the application of sealant materials (cleanable, re-usable SA version and the SA-EZ version that features a disposable fluid section design for 'EZ' changeover)
Precision piston seal design prevents wasted material and maximizes usage per cartridge
Cartridge containment design limits impact of cartridge dimensional inconsistencies from the material manufacturer
System monitors material level, temperature, time, pressure and valve positions for full process control
Changeover from a used cartridge to a new cartridge is completed in seconds, further reducing downtime and overall cycle time
The JetStream Automated Cartridge Dispenser complements the existing Nordson SEALANT EQUIPMENT product line of solutions for the world’s leading aerospace manufacturers and tiered sub-suppliers. Processes we support include specialist aerospace adhesive and sealant manufacturing, composite part edge sealing and mix-on-demand dispensing.
