Henkel presents new generation of dosing machines at Fakuma 2021

Henkel will be presenting the new DM 502 generation of dosing machines with the newly developed MK 825 PRO mixing head at Fakuma 2021, the world's leading trade fair for industrial plastics processing, from October 12 to 16. The many innovative improvements serve one purpose: maximum process stability in the fully automatic processing and dosing of sealing foams, adhesives and potting compounds. The result is high-quality sealing, bonding or potting of components.

With the Sonderhoff System Solutions (S3), Henkel offers its customers tailor-made sealing, bonding and potting solutions, with material, machine and automation from a single source. For this purpose, the Sonderhoff SMART-M dispensing cell with the new DM 502 dosing machine and the newly developed MK 825 PRO mixing head will be operated live at booth No. 5109 in hall A5 at Fakuma.

The new mixing head has a maintenance-friendly, conical V-design and has been consistently further developed on the basis of the predecessor model MK 600, which has proven itself for 20 years, with many improvements and innovative features. This ensures maximum process stability for fully automatic sealing, bonding and potting with Formed-In-Place (Foam-Gasket) technology.

The sensors installed in the DM 502 dosing machine and the MK 825 PRO mixing head measure a wide range of data for seamless monitoring and compliance with critical process parameters, such as temperature, degree of air loading, sensor-monitored axial position of the agitator shaft, automatic control of the DVS stroke adjustment, and sensor-monitored needle positioning of the dosing valve. This provides the machine operator with a comprehensive database on the entire FIP(FG) application process. It enables fast and precise data analysis for optimised process evaluation and control as well as predictive monitoring of material application processes and preventive maintenance of wear parts.

In addition to better evaluation options, the new mixing head is said to achieve outstanding dosing and process quality for even better results.
