Adhesives specialist Intertronics now supplies the Vermes Microdispensing System (MDS) 1560, an easy-to use, cost effective jetting valve for a wide range of viscosities, including solder pastes. The product is based on Dynamic Shockwave Technology (DST), a revolutionary pneumatic actuator technology, which optimises the valve’s yield to achieve more precise dispensing. Able to dispense very small amounts in rapid succession, the consistent actuation power delivers high precision, even at the smallest dispense stroke. The Vermes MDS 1560 dispenses small volumes of material at fast speeds with accuracy and repeatability, including onto 3D surfaces. It offers a high clock frequency (around 500Hz) and dispensed shot sizes down to around 1nl.
