Delta Fly Dispenser Solution Facilitates New Product Production and Improves Commissioning Efficiency by up to 50%

Glue dispensing has long been a mature process in PCB manufacturing. However, there are still practical pain points for traditional and automated lines. Traditionally, dispensing is a manual operation done in a fixed position, which is time-consuming, less flexible, and with a higher error rate. To tackle these hurdles, automated lines are replacing operators with robots. Although it enhances productivity, the large variety and complexity of conveyor systems make production management, project creation, and machine tuning particularly challenging.
To fix these pain points, Delta has introduced its Fly Dispenser Solution. The solution divides the dispensing process into four stages: code reading and feeding, vision positioning, robot processing, and unloading. It also integrates a 5-axis SCARA and dispensing gun to track the continuous line and complete dispensing. With this solution, the dispensing path and the related new product information are taught for the Compact Modular Mid-Range PLC AS Series or barcode scanner to read the code and automatically switch to the corresponding position. There is no need for manual input to avoid misprocessing. The solution executes positioning with the machine vision system based on Delta's Machine Vision Library DIAVision LIB. It can precisely determine product positions and create the information for the SCARA Robot DRS Series to accomplish the preset point dispensing. The PCB is then transferred to the dryer machine and unloaded after drying. Delta’s Fly Dispenser Solution optimizes each stage of the process to enhance efficiency and quality and reduce tuning time.

Delta’s Fly Dispenser Solution provides the following benefits:

  • Enhances commissioning efficiency by up to 50% with a comprehensive system architecture
The comprehensive architecture connects systems and equipment of different layers for high-speed, stable, and precise operation. The solution offers a built-in workflow tree where users can follow the instructions to create a project. At each step, users can see sample figures and text descriptions. With this assistance, they do not need prior experience to manage the process and can easily duplicate the implementation. The solution provides different interfaces for different levels of authority, as well as enhances the commissioning efficiency by up to 50%.
  • Optimizes product quaity
The solution precisely controls the dispensing position and glue amount and provides multiple motion modes, including single-point (time adjustable) and continuous dispensing (speed adjustable). With positioning verification and no-loading running functions, users can reconfirm the dispensing accuracy and precision.
  • Automatically switches between projects to avoid misprocessing
The solution can automatically switch to corresponding projects according to the product code to avoid misprocessing and save historical data. Users can also run a project manually, and the system supports offline adjustment.
  • Single-point tool coordinates system calibration to accelerate commissioning timeline
The system offers a single-point tool coordinates system calibration window, so that users can move the robot to a set point to replace the dispensing head and quickly complete the tool coordinates calibration and storage.
  • Offers various types of trajectory and enables batch processing of points to satisfy different processing scenarios
The solution provides three motion modes of transition point dispensing, single point dispensing, and continuous dispensing to meet different production requirements. It supports a one-click fast point switch and supports online verification. After teaching, the robot can move to the target position immediately to verify. The solution can batch process single-point or self-defined points to compensate for multiple points at once.

Delta’s Fly Dispenser Solution is an all-in-one Delta solution integrating robots and machine vision. Additionally, it supports I/O control and cross-communication with peripheral devices to help customers address their pain points in one stop, satisfying the new requirements of the smart manufacturing wave.
